Colorful Boba Pearl from Scratch! Failsafe Revised Recipe! 如何做彩色水果珍珠茶

Is Colorful Fruity Boba Pearls the next Unicorn Boba Pearls beverage?

Colorful and Fruity Boba Pearls could be the next Unicorn Boba Pearl Beverage!

Previously I did a video on how to make tapioca boba pearls at home and some have been telling me that their dough end up becoming too stick and could not work on the dough to roll them. So just recently I’ve got some extra time and thought that I should improve the recipe to make it failsafe, so anyone can make it at home with ease. Perhaps adding some cheese foam to it would be great too! (Cheese Tea Recipe here)

And this time, even better, I am sharing the recipe for boba pearls that are made with fresh fruits!

Ingredients for Boba Pearls

  • 1 cup+/- Fresh Fruits of your choice
  • 1 cup of Tapioca Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Hot Water

  1. Remove the skin of the fruit if any.
  2. Chop fruits into tiny pieces or blend them into puree.
  3. Into a pot, add chopped fruits, 1 cup of tapioca flour, sugar and hot water.
  4. Cook them over lowest heat. As you cook them, stir consistently to mix and prevent bottom from burning.
  5. Cook until it comes together and form a stick dough.
  6. Turn of the heat.
  7. Add another 1/2 cup of tapioca flour and fold the flour into the dough.
  8. Once the flour are folded in, generously flour a clean working surface as well as your hands. Transfer the dough onto the floured surface.
  9. Roll the dough into an elongated shape and cut them into several smaller pieces.
  10. Then roll the smaller dough into a smaller roll about the diameter of a chopstick.
  11. Then cut the at about 1 cm in length and roll them into round shape.

  2. Only add the uncooked boba pearls when the water are at boiling point.
  3. Simmer for 5 minutes.
