BOBA Milk Tea

BOBA milk tea, Bubble tea, Pearl tea, tapioca tea… Whatever its called… I like it!

When you’re craving for something you itch for days but you’re at you’re wits end because getting out of the house is just impossible, especially if your stuck with toddlers. You finally get your pantry cleaned and hoping very hard you have tapioca balls and condensed milk hiding somewhere. The feeling of having these 2 things you’ve been looking for showed up,  gave you the clear definition of hope for this day. Then, you realized that tapioca balls take forever cook. You just drool with anticipation. 

Here’s how I made my version of tiny BOBA tea

The ingredients:

Sago or tapioca balls (I had small sago in my pantry, so this is what I used) BOBA tea, uses Big sago, black pearl.

Tea bag of your choice.  These hibiscus tea were given by  a great friend. Smells soooo good too.

Sweetened condensed milk


Cook tapioca balls by boiling in water until translucent. Drain and set aside.

Steep 2 bags of tea in a water.

Pour condensed milk in a glass

Pour tea in a glass over condensed milk.

Stir tea and milk together. Then add tapioca balls. 

Can serve hot or cold.. 

I like mine cold…  🙂 so I filled mine with ice cubes..

… With these 3 ingredients you will be surprised how much joy it brings. Definitely deserve the #cravingsatisfied hashtag as the tapioca balls whirl inside your mouth as you sip and that sweet milky refreshing tea goes down your throat. If this is not refreshing, then I don’t know what is…



Devilled eggs

The most challenging part of the day is what to cook for toddlers with the list of considerations:

  • What would they eat?
  • What is fun to eat?
  • What can Diego eat, who has a G6PD condition?
  • What is healthy?
  • What is available in the cupboard and fridge?

Then you think for a second, I am left with very limited options. You’re resourcefulness and creativity comes in handy. 

In this recipe, I tweaked it a bit. The deviled eggs recipe calls for a mustard, but I didn’t have any and the kids probably wouldnt like it, as it is an acquired taste. I have an opened all purpose cream in the fridge and so I replaced it with than and it added creaminess to the yolks too. 

Here are the ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Mayonnaise
  • All purpose cream
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Green onion leaves
  1. Boil eggs for at least 10 minutes or until hard boiled. Cool.
  2. Peel eggs and cut in half.

3. Remove yolks from egg whites.

4. Add in mayonnaise and cream.

5. Mix until creamy and lump free.

6. Add your seasoning and spices ; salt, pepper and nutmeg or paprika, nutmeg is all I have.

7. Mid until all incorporated. Taste. Adjust taste according to your desired taste.

8. Put in a piping bag or a ziplock bag and pipe the yolks on the egg whites.

9. Put a dash of nutmeg and green onion leaves on top. 

Lunch is ready. Go try it out. Its also great as appetizer. It can be served cold or warm. 

Let me know if you tried it. Happy cooking. Always think of what your kids would it and play around your kitchen and you will be surprised what you can come up with.
