Chia Coconut Milk Bubble Tea

Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Serves 4 glasses
Ingredients
1 cup large tapioca pearls
3 cups tea of choice
4 - 6 tbsp palm or brown sugar (or to taste)
3 cup coconut milk
1 - 2 tsp black Chia seeds
crushed ice (optional)
Method

Cook tapioca pearls according to package’s instructions. Make your tea to desired strength, and then add palm or brown sugar. Drain pearls when ready and mix with sweetened tea. When ready to serve, mix the bubble tea mixture with the coconut milk, stir to combine. Check for sweetness and add more if needed.  Fill glass half way with crushed ice, if desired and divide mixture evenly between glasses. Sprinkle with Chia seeds and serve immediately.

Tip: Chill your coconut milk and tea ahead of time. You can use 4 cups of sweetened store bought bubble tea with tapioca pearls for this recipe, in place of the tapioca pearls, tea and sugar. Traditionally bubble tea is made with condensed milk – we use coconut milk for a lighter version.
