Well, let’s clarify some misunderstanding right immediately. This boba drink does not include any tea, although as you may know the nomenclature of bubble tea (or boba) may be misleading. We will be creating our own version of the viral drink – Iced Boba Coffee!!
So don’t be shocked if you hear anything like dalgona bubble tea coffee. Tea is no longer a necessary component of many popular bubble tea tastes these days.
This whipped coffee is produced by whisking sweetened instant coffee into a thick froth. It comprises coffee, milk, sugar, ice, and brown sugar tapioca boba pearls.
The sweetness of the boba and the harshness of the coffee combine in this dalgona. The combination of sweet and bitter flavors is enhanced by the drink’s cold temperature.
The hue is a light brown thick foam that becomes lighter with the dark nearly black tapioca boba pearls at the bottom.
As the foam disappears on your tongue, the mouthfeel is silky. Then the delicious coffee with its tinge of bitterness glides across your mouth. The chewiness of the tapioca pearls provides a fantastic contrasting texture with a flash of sweetness.
Try Out Some Wild Variations
You may go crazy and create whatever mixture you can think of.
If you’re looking for something new to drink, try oat, coconut, almond, or strawberry milk.
Sweetener options include a variety of brown and white sugars as well as sugar syrups.
If you want your dalgona boba coffee to be the prettiest shade of lavender, use a lavender syrup.
It’s possible that you’ve even seen one made of Kool-Aid and Cool Whip that was green with blue foam.
For those who don’t like for the extreme foaminess of a dalgona coffee with boba, alternative options such as a boba latte or various bubble coffees are available.
Dalgona Iced Boba Coffee Recipe
This is a simple recipe on how to make dalgona iced boba coffee from the comfort of your home. It assumes you have purchased your own boba pearls. You can find it in your nearby Asian store or even on Amazon here – Tapioca Pearls
Iced Boba Coffee Recipe
- 1/2 Cup Raw Dried Tapioca Pearls 90g
- 3 tbsp Sugar
- 2 cups Crushed Ice
- 3 cups Cold Brew Coffee
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 tbsp Honey
- Tapioca should be prepared according to the package directions. The product I used required 5 minutes of boiling time, or until it sank to the surface. I also add a little amount of sugar to the mix.
- Strain the pearls after 5 minutes in an ice bath and then transfer them to an ice bath.
- Mix Honey with the heavy cream
- Fill the glasses with ice and divide the pearls among them.
- Pour cold brew coffee over the ice until about ¾ full.
- Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
