Thai Mango-Coconut Bubble Tea

For this Thai Mango-Coconut Bubble Tea, you will need:
  • 1 package tapioca pearls (made for bubble tea)
  • Thai red tea OR regular black or orange pekoe tea (regular 'Red Rose' tea works well)
  • 1 ripe mango (OR substitute 2-3 cups frozen mango)
  • natural syrup, such as maple syrup (OR substitute sugar)
  • 1-2 cans coconut milk (1 can will serve 2 people)
  • crushed ice or ice cubes
Optional Ingredients:
  • regular milk or cream, OR good-tasting soy milk, OR sweetened condensed milk
  • straws (bubble tea straws work best)
Tips on Ingredients/Substitutions:
  • It's best to use the black, green, or multi-colored tapioca pearls made specifically for bubble tea. These are available in most Asian food stores, and also online. Regular tapioca pearls will disappoint, as they fall apart when cooked.
  • Use one of the milk options listed above if you prefer your bubble tea creamy.
