Anyone obsessed with boba tea? I was. When I was living in Singapore I would have a boba tea everyday. I would stop by the tea place at the train station and get one before I headed into the office. Back then I didn’t really think about what I was putting in my body. I just ate and drank what I liked and enjoyed it. I never new how much it was filled with empty calories and sugar.
Now if I have friends wanting to go to a boba tea place (there is 4 alone in my neighborhood that just opened in the last 3 months) I just order a normal ice tea unsweetened with no boba. I know you are thinking she is just drinking regular tea then. Yup, but at least I get to spend time with friends and they get to enjoy the drinks they want to have.
I do miss the milky tea, so I created three nutrient dense Cashew Milk’s with Chia seeds. The chia seeds act as a replacement to the boba, which is just full of empty carbohydrates. Chia seeds are high in fiber, omega 3 fats and protein.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my daughter did.
