Cookie Crush bubble milk tea is a deliciously creamy twist on traditional milk tea that will satisfy even the sweetest of sweet tooths. It’s a fun boba drink made with real cookies and it is customizable for everyone’s tastes.
Adding cookies to milk tea enhances the flavor and texture of the drink. Make sure you have a strong enough blender that will be able to pulverize the cookies so that they give the tea an even consistency. I used Oreo cookies and matcha tea in this recipe, but you can customize it to your liking.Print
What Does a Cookie Crush Bubble Tea Taste Like?
This unique bubble tea combines matcha tea’s earthy and grassy flavors with brown sugar and dark chocolate cookies. The result is similar to a cookies ‘n cream milk tea with adult flavors. It is rich, creamy, and very sweet.
Can You Use Different Types of Cookies in This Recipe?
Absolutely! Several types of cookies would go well with this recipe. For example, you could use chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate Milano cookies, shortbread cookies, white chocolate strawberry cookies, peanut butter cookies, mint cookies, or ginger snaps. Just remember to think about the flavor profiles and how the cookies and tea flavors will taste together.
What Can You Use Instead of Matcha?
Matcha has a strong, unique taste and 3/4 teaspoon contains approximately 60 mg of caffeine. There are several alternatives if you don’t have matcha on hand or want a different flavor.
For a robust, spiced flavor, try chai or Thai tea. For something potent but less intense, black tea is a great choice. Oolong or green tea will take a backseat to the cookies, while jasmine tea will add a hint of floral flavor. For a tea with little-to-no caffeine, herbal and fruit tea are great options.
You could also use plain chocolate milk or chocolate milk tea. There are many different options for this delicious drink.
Is It Possible to Make a Vegan Cookie Crush Bubble Tea?
Yes, making a vegan cookie crush boba tea is simple. Rather than using full-fat milk or any dairy milk, you will substitute plant-based milk such as almond milk, oat milk, or, our favorite, coconut milk.
This may come as a surprise, but Oreo cookies are vegan! They are a great option in this recipe and pair well with matcha tea.

This recipe, made with matcha tea, has several proven health benefits, including the following:
