Ingredients

BROWN SUGAR BOBA PEARLS

BROWN SUGAR SYRUP

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups water for boiling

DRINK ASSEMBLY

  • 4 cups fresh milk preferably cold
  • ice cubes optional

Instructions

BROWN SUGAR BOBA PEARL

  • Combine water and brown sugar in a pan. Simmer over very low heat until dissolved.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Turn off heat then add the remaining tapioca flour. Stir until dough is formed.
  • Transfer to a flat surface and knead until smooth. Place a plastic foil on top of the dough. Flatten using a rolling pin to about 1 cm thick, then cut into small squares.
  • Roll the pieces into small balls then place them in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour. Shake the bowl lightly every now and then to make sure the pearls are covered with flour and not sticking together.

BROWN SUGAR SYRUP

  • Pour the Boba pearls into boiling water and leave for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add 2 cups of brown sugar and stir. Leave it to boil for another 5 minutes.

DRINK ASSEMBLY

  • Divide the syrup and boba pearls into 4 tall glasses. Tip the glass to the side and slowly roll until the sides are completely covered with syrup.
  • Add milk and ice, then stir them all together with the straw.
