  • 1/3 cup taro powder
  • 2 tbsp creamer
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/3 cup tapioca pearls
  • 8 ounces hot water


  • To make taro bubble tea, mix 1/3 cup of taro powder with 8 ounces of hot water and allow the powder to dissolve. If you are using the actual taro root, cut 1-inch cubes, and add a pinch of baking soda. Boil it until it becomes soft. Once it is done, put it separately and allow it to cool. 
  • Add 2 tablespoons of creamer and blend it well until it becomes smooth.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Add 1 cup of ice and shake/stir well.
  • Cook the tapioca pearls as per the package instructions. 
  • Spoon the boba or tapioca pearls into the drink and enjoy it! 


You can soak the tapioca pearls in honey for an hour if you want to sweeten them.
