Have you ever tried to make bubble tea with chia seeds? Yeah I thought so.
Well, I really felt like having a bubble tea the other day, but I didn’t want to go downtown to get it and I was thinking about the amount of sugar that’s usually in it, so… I had the crazy idea of making my one healthy bubble tea..ish.
So first I had to make my own flavor, and I wanted it to be a littly fruity and peachy, so I just threw a bunch of fruits in a pot and boiled them. I used honey to sweeten it, since it was a little sour because of the oranges and lemon slices.
And because I didn’t have any tapioca at home I put some chia seeds in a glass of water for a couple of hours to make them a little jelly-like. Then I just made some jasmine tea and combined everything, and voilà:
Well, it’s not really like the bubble-teas you get at the store, naturally. But I believe it’s healthier and I actually like jelly-chia-seeds in a cup of tea, so why not 🙂
Oh and happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrate it 🙂
