This recipe doesn’t have a tea base, but black, matcha, or green tea are great options. If you decide to use tea, use only a 1/2 cup of milk and one cup of tea.

If you are vegan or lactose-intolerant, you will need to find replacements for the milk and the condensed milk. Oat or soy milk are two great options, but to replace the condensed milk, you’ll need to add more sweetener.

We also like to substitute a low-calorie sweetener such as stevia instead of brown sugar.

What Does Avocado Boba Taste Like?

Avocado boba has a hint of sweetness from the sugar syrup and condensed milk, but it is not overwhelming. The avocado masks some of the sweetness and gives the drink a somewhat earthy taste.

Because of the combination of milk and avocado, the drink’s texture is rich and creamy. This is a perfect drink for any time of the day because it is filling and will keep you satisfied for a few hours.

Is Avocado Bubble Tea Sweet?

As we mentioned before, avocado bubble tea is somewhat sweet. However, it is not overwhelming unless you choose to make it so. At home or in a bubble tea shop, you can always control the amount of sugar that goes into your tea.

This recipe has just a hint of sweetness mixed with the earthy taste of avocado, so it is an excellent drink for the mornings or a mid-day snack.

Is Avocado Boba Tea Healthy?

Avocados are a source of healthy fat that have several health benefits. Some of those benefits include:

  • They are high in vitamins such as C, E, K, and B6.
  • They contain beneficial fats that help you feel fuller longer between meals.
  • They provide vital nutrients such as riboflavin, niacin, folate, magnesium, and potassium.

Though avocados provide several health benefits, the added sugar in bubble tea makes the drink less healthy. Of course, there are healthier options, such as using stevia instead of sugar.

Can You Use Avocado Bubble Tea Powder?

If you don’t have access to fresh avocado or are pressed for time, you can find avocado boba tea powder online. You may even find it in the Asian section of some grocery stores in your area. Using powder will give you a more watery texture, but powder tea flavors are usually spot-on.

Which Toppings Are Best in an Avocado Boba Drink?

Just about all available bubble tea toppings blend well with avocado boba tea. Tapioca pearls are the traditional topping, but sweetened red beans, jelly, popping boba, chia, chocolate, and custard are also delicious additions to this tea flavor.

Half of the fun of boba tea is mixing and matching teas, flavorings, ingredients, and toppings. Experiment with new combinations each time you make or buy a boba drink!

After recently discovering bubble tea, Margaret is addicted. Thai iced tea with coffee jelly and lychee fruit tea with popping boba are her favorite combinations so far. She is currently working on a few homemade healthy versions of her favorite flavors that will satisfy her sweet tooth all the same.
