Mango Black Tea Smoothie with Boba

  • Author: Tiffany Bui |
  • Total Time: 35
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


  • 1 ripened mango, sliced into chunks
  • 1 cup silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup iced black tea or mango black tea
  • 1/4 cup large tapioca pearls
  • 3 Tbsp coconut sugar or honey
  • 3 cups water


  1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Once the water is boiling, add the tapioca pearls & stir to loosen the pearls if they were previously attached to one another.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the mango, tofu, & green tea in a blender. Blend until smooth & place into the refrigerator to keep it cold.
  3. Place a lid over the saucepan & bring the water down to a simmer on low heat. Stir occasionally for about 15 minutes or until the tapioca pearls all sink to the bottom, the water turns a murky brown color, & they are soft, yet chewy.
  4. Remove the tapioca pearls from the saucepan by draining into a strainer, rinsing quickly with water. Place the tapioca pearls into a bowl & add the sweetener. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or until the pearls have absorbed the sweetness.
  5. Scoop some of the tapioca pearls, also known as boba, into a tall glass & then the mango smoothie. Enjoy!


  • If you have boba left over, pop it into the fridge to keep it from spoiling. Stick it into the microwave for about 15-20 seconds on high heat to enjoy again the following day.
