Today I wasn’t sure how to celebrate tapioca day. I use tapioca a lot, actually, so I pondered which application I would use.
Gluten free foodies know what I’m talking about. We put tapioca starch in just about every baked good. I bow down to the tapioca starch.
However, I didn’t feel like baking anything today. So I went with my favorite tapioca treat.
Bubble tea is amazing. This frozen drink is sweet and has the tapioca pearl surprise at the bottom.
Now I love it. I chose taro for today’s flavor, which is why my drink is purple. If you’ve never had taro flavored desserts before, you’re missing out! To me, it tastes like a nuttier version of a cake flavor. And of course, purple is my favorite color, so cake and purple equals best ever.
Have you tried bubble tea before? What do you think? I know there are other ways to make bubble tea, not just as a frozen frappe convocation, so I’m curious to hear if anyone has tried those varieties.
