Alright! How is everyone doing? I am finally back at it after visiting Paleof(x) two weeks ago. What an amazing trip! I had the pleasure of meeting a ton of fantastic people. I also got to meet a lot of my Facebook friends that I’ve known for years in person. Austin was definitely plus! The city is so full of life and the food scene is fabulous. I also liked the weather because when I got there, no allergies! The humidity and heat was a constant reminder that summer is right around the corner. I predict a very hot summer this year. So we’ve made a Paleo friendly Boba Frap.
What is a Boba Frap? It is a boba tea frappe. Boba tea a tea based drink that originates out of Taiwan back in the 80’s. Usually blended with milk or fruit served cold with large tapioca pearls. It is an extremely popular drink with a cult-like following. I’ve created a healthier, frappe version with natural ingredients that will fit your Paleo needs. This makes for a fantastic summer drink.
There are so many things you can do with the Boba Frap. Here are just a few basic versions. You can add liquor, smoothie powder, protein powder, make it with coffee. Your imagination is your limit. For this recipe, we will need a decent blender, tapioca pearls and boba straws. Without any further delays, let’s get blending!
