Healthy Boba or Bubble Tea Drink ?



I shared this super quick and easy recipe on my social media accounts so I figured I would also share it here in case anyone else has a craving!  BTW you can follow me @sarahlinbrockner on Instagram, Sarah Lin Brockner on Facebook, and @sarahlbrockner on Twitter if you want to.  So boba is also called bubble tea or bubble milk but if you have never had it then you are totally missing out IMO!!  It is an Asian drink that is sweet & usually creamy that is filled with little tapioca balls.  You can get it in a ton of different flavors.  It is really packed with sugar though so it’s definitely not healthy lol!  Good occasional but I created a pretty good substitute that you can enjoy everyday and still look and feel fabulous!  I literally drink this almost everyday-so good!!!


To to make all you need is:

✳️ A scoop of your favorite protein powder (I used a birthday cake flavor)

✳️ A serving or packet of chia seeds (about 1-2 tablespoons)

✳️ Water (a little more than you would normally use for a shake)

✳️ Splash of cream (optional but really yummy!)

✳️ Add a complimentary favored tea for half of the water if you want bubble tea instead of bubble milk

Just blend up your protein powder, water, cream, & tea (if using) in a blender with ice (if desired) or shake it in a shaker cup.  Then add your chia seeds and stir.  I usually let the chia soak for 10-15 minutes while stirring every so often so they do not stick together.  The chia will get larger & create little jelly like balls similar to the tapioca balls in boba but much healthier!!  Enjoy!!


With my exact ingredients this is about 150 calories, very low carb, and packed with protein.  Chia is exceptionally healthy for you too!  You can read more about all of chia’s great health benefits here http://www.doctoroz.com/blog/lindsey-duncan-nd-cn/chia-ancient-super-secret
