Ya what? Yakult!

I am a boba milk tea junkie. It’s not so much the boba that I must have, it’s the gulping down of the frothy sweetness that I crave. The boba is a plus. At one point, I was so addicted that hours before going into labor, I waddled my way to my favorite tea place for a nice big icy drink. Most days, i often ask myself if it is worth the trouble and it often is not. Going with 2 kids in tow? I don’t think so.

The last couple of times I was able to get boba milk tea, i paid close attention. I tell you, it’s like some kind of top secret. I saw her pouring from stainless pitchers that were labeled “G” & “S” (probably stands for green tea & syrup) and then I spotted Yakult! They use Yakult! Aha!

Armed with what I saw, I tried making it. Not bad! Not bad at all! I hereby present to you, Yogurt green tea. It’s not Kung Fu tea but close enough!

Yogurt Green Tea
3/4 cup of green tea (I use tea bags)
1 Yakult
1 tablespoon of sugar honey syrup or agave syrup

(For the syrup, I mix equal amount of water, sugar, and honey. Bring the water to a boil, add sugar and honey and stir to dissolve. I make 1 cup of this syrup and store in the fridge for up to a week.)

Put all the ingredients in the shaker with some ice, shake it up. It is that simple.

Now if only I can make my own macarons too….
