What is Boba Smoothie?

Boba Smoothie is a delicious drink that combines boba tea and fruit smoothies. The combination of these two flavors is extremely popular in Asian countries, and it’s making its way to America.

It’s a great drink for those who love the sweet taste of boba tea but also want something with more substance. You can find Boba Smoothies at many Asian restaurants or online for purchase.

Boba pearls

The use of boba pearls in making boba smoothies is to provide a chewy texture. The boba pearls are made from rice flour, sago, or a combination of the two. When you drink a boba smoothie, you will feel that the liquid is smoother because of the chewy texture provided by the boba pearls.

Vanilla ice cream

Vanilla ice cream is a key ingredient in making a boba smoothie. The ice cream provides a creamy texture and cool, refreshing taste that balances out the tangy taste of the boba pearls. It can also be used to add volume to your smoothie, which helps it keep its shape when you serve it up.



The milk in a boba smoothie is used to add additional flavor and texture.

It can be used to add a creamy consistency and richness to the drink, which is why it’s often used in place of cream or other dairy products in other tea recipes.

It also gives the smoothie extra protein, which helps keep you full longer, so you stay satisfied longer.



Honey is an ingredient in boba smoothies that give the beverage a sweet but not overpowering flavor. The honey also adds some thickness to the drink and helps it to hold up better in the blender.

Strawberries (optional)

Strawberries are one of the most commonly used fruits in smoothies, and for a good reason. They’re not only delicious and versatile, but they also offer a ton of health benefits.


Strawberries are full of vitamin C, which is great for boosting your immune system and protecting against colds and other illnesses. They also contain fiber and antioxidants that help fight free radicals in your body.

Strawberries are also incredibly rich in antioxidants—more so than many other fruits! Antioxidants help slow down the aging process by neutralizing free radicals that can damage cells.

So when you’re making a boba smoothie, add some fresh strawberries to give it a sweet taste without adding sugar!

How to make boba smoothie

  1. In a blender, add the boba pearls, ice cream, and milk.
  2. Blend until smooth. Then add the honey and strawberries (if used) and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy!


Here are some tips for how to make Smoothie much better.

  1. Use high-quality ingredients. Using fresh fruit and milk will give you the best flavor and texture. You can also buy frozen fruit instead of fresh if you’re short on time or money.
  2. Use fresh milk in your smoothie instead of powdered milk or canned milk products like canned coconut milk or canned almond milk because they have a shorter shelf life than fresh milk and will not taste as good as real milk does in your smoothie once it’s gone bad after being opened up for too long without refrigeration.
  3. If you want to add ice cubes into your Boba Smoothie recipe, then make sure that they’ve been frozen at least 24 hours ahead of time so that they don’t melt as quickly when added into the blender with everything else inside!


  • When you’re ready to store your Boba Smoothie, make sure you store it in an airtight container. The longer you leave it out, the more likely it is that the fruit will turn brown and unappetizing.
  • Cover up your Smoothie with a plastic wrap and then put it in a freezer bag for extra protection against freezer burn and other problems that can happen to frozen foods if they’re not properly packaged and preserved.
