Directions

  1. To a saucepan, add the frozen strawberries and sugar. Cook on medium heat until the strawberries have thawed. Use the back of a spoon to lightly mash the strawberries.
  2. Remove the pan from the stove and use an immersion blender or standing blender to purée the strawberries. Set aside to cool.
  3. Cook the tapioca pearls according to the package instructions. For us, this took 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the tapioca pearls, and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Add the pearls to a bowl and mix in the agave syrup.
  5. In a pitcher, combine the oat milk, whipping cream, and vanilla.
  6. Divide the tapioca pearls between your glasses, and spoon some of the strawberry purée over the pearls.
  7. Top with ice, followed by the vanilla cream milk. Finish with some fresh strawberries if desired. Enjoy!

Hands down, this is a great recipe to start with if you're not very familiar with bubble tea. The flavor combination works perfectly. I really enjoyed it! Thanks for giving us more recipes for bubble tea! Will definitely try the tea based ones as well.

It means so much, Chhaya, thank you! Happy cooking 🤗

I wonder about the quality of the boba - heavily processed? What are the ingredients?

I made homemade boba from @emmymade and they were wonderful

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 7:04 p.m.

Hey Kathy, we used tapioca boba pearls from a local grocery store and the first three ingredients appear to be tapioca starch, water, and corn starch. Making homemade boba pearls is a lovely idea though if you have the time and ability to make them. This drink is also refreshing and delicious without the pearls so you could alternatively omit them if desired 🙂

Hi! Is it okay to use fresh strawberries instead of frozen? Or do they have to be frozen? Aiming to try this lovely recipe today!

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 5:10 a.m.

Hey Mel, you can use fresh strawberries. We hope you enjoy the bubble tea if you're able to give it a try ✨

This was my first time trying bubble tea/fruit drink and I loved it!! The sweetness was perfect and the strawberry and cream flavours alongside the chewy tapioca pearls were so delicious! I've been missing out! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Just need to purchase some reusable boba straws now as my regular ones aren't cutting it. 🙃

PUL Team - July 21, 2022, 6:15 a.m.

Woop woop! Beyond happy to hear your first bubble tea was a success, Charlotte, reusable boba straws are a lovely idea 😃


Emma - July 20, 2022, 3:14 p.m.

Made it with frozen raspberries as I didn't have strawberries and oh my goodness it was DELICIOUS ! Tasted almost like a berry pie or some kind of dessert, it was a real treat. My boyfriend and I loved it, so as always thank you for those amazing recipies and beautiful videos. You're doing a wonderful job!
(Plus it was my first time ever drinking bubble "tea" and so my first time making it at home as well and now I can't wait to try your other flavours)

Awe the glowing feedback and insight mean so much, Emma, thank you!

Hi PUL Team!
thank you so much for this recipe! the aesthetic of this strawberry milk bubble tea is so adorable- it reminds me of my childhood!!
I tried this with matcha included- It's very wonderfully refreshing <3 instead of oatmlik + whipping cream I used oat creamer!

PUL Team - July 12, 2022, 7:20 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Esther, and oat creamer sounds lovely 😃


Lindsay - July 10, 2022, 10:03 p.m.

Cannot wait to try this. Have the strawberries puréed, just waiting for the ice cubes to freeze.

PUL Team - July 12, 2022, 7:17 a.m.

We hope you enjoyed it, Lindsay!
