Peanut butter has this magical quality of elevating any meal. This is no different in the case of our beloved boba tea, as this peanut-loaded freak bubble tea recipe will both quench your thirst and leave you feeling satiated.
Bubble tea is all about flavor combinations. Who would have guessed that jasmine tea and peanut butter would go so well together? This recipe is not only unique and delicious, but it’s also surprisingly easy to put together.Print
What Does Peanut-Loaded Freak Boba Tea Taste Like?
Although this beverage’s primary ingredient is peanut butter, it’s not overwhelmingly nutty.
The sweetness of the vanilla extract and sugar syrup balance out the nutty saltiness of peanut butter. The jasmine milk tea also adds a creamy and slightly floral flavor that’s refreshing to sip on. And, of course, the sugar-coated tapioca pearls add a gooey texture that’s a delight to chew.
Is Peanut-Loaded Freak Bubble Tea Healthy?
Mix anything with sugar, milk, and starch, and it becomes unhealthy. Peanut butter isn’t renowned for its health benefits; it is high in fat and calories. However, it’s not all bad. Peanut butter offers a handful of health benefits that are also worth mentioning.
Peanut butter is rich in many vitamins and minerals, such as:
- Vitamin B
Furthermore, milk is rich in calcium, while jasmine tea contains antioxidants. So, while this recipe might not be the healthiest option, it does provide a little kick of nutrients.
If you’re watching your weight, you shouldn’t seek out this drink as an alternative to healthier tea options available, like fruit teas, Assam teas, and floral tea recipes.
How Much Caffeine Does Peanut-Loaded Freak Boba Tea Have?
This recipe includes half a cup of jasmine tea, containing approximately 13 mg of caffeine.
If you’d like more caffeine in your drink, you can substitute the tea for a stronger variety, such as black or green tea. However, remember that different tea flavors will also result in subtle changes to the drink’s taste.
Can You Make This Recipe Vegan?
Yes, making a vegan alternative to peanut butter bubble tea is possible. Switch out whole milk for a vegan-friendly option, such as coconut, soy, or almond milk.
Furthermore, a sugar sweetener like maple syrup is more vegan-friendly than refined cane sugar since the latter typically contains bone char as a processing agent.
Where Do They Sell Peanut-Loaded Freak Bubble Tea?
This boba tea recipe is quite distinct from the usual flavors, so not all bubble tea shops offer it.
However, some specialty boba tea stores have their own spin on peanut-rich concoctions. One example is Bubbleology’s peanut-loaded freak bubble tea. The only difference is that this store’s recipe brings in an alcoholic kick with a splash of bourbon whisky.

Here are a few of our favorite toppings besides tapioca balls:
- A scoop of vanilla ice cream
