Do You Like Boba Bubble in Your Drink?

Black pearl tapioca bubbles in the Matcha tea.

In this small town, Baton Rouge, at least 16 bubble tea shops that I can choose to get a cup of beverages with chewy texture pearls of tapioca starch.

In spans of three years, this kind of pearls be a favorite “jewel” in here, especially among teenagers and young adults who are still energetic and/or love something new.

Actually, the pearls are lack of nutrients and the taste is bland; so to make a little flavor there is some sweet or fat are added that contribute to high calories in the bubbles.

No wonder, when someone on dieting or weigh watching said boba is just “Yikes”.

The pearls or bobas are made from tapioca starch. Tapioca is also known as cassava or yuca. The starch is from the flesh of root with white or white-yellowish color. 


The bubbles or boba sit on the bottom.

Yuca or cassava is well-known as food in the South America, Asia, and Africa. Cassava roots can be cooked into varieties of delicious dishes.

Even though the root produces natural cyanide, the right processing such as by peeling the skin, cutting, and soaking them in water are able to get rid of the toxic.


Natural white tapioca pearls.

The starch can be made pudding and balls. The tapioca balls or boba come with natural white color or any variety colors.

One medium size cup of any beverage is about 5 to 6 bucks and extra cost 50 cents to 1 buck for adding boba.

The price is too expensive for me if I have to buy almost everyday for summer. So I made my own boba dessert.


Boba dessert, white pearls with some chopped fruits in coconut milk.

I had boba in my cold beverages and cold desserts as long as summer. Since tapioca is an energy-dense food, one cup starch contain over than 500 calories, no wonder, I gain weight in last three months.

  13. If you just eat boba, it may not taste good. so it needs something else to add to its taste, whether in drinks or food ....

  18. Yes I do.

    But I've heard some weird stories, a little bit scary, that anyone suffocated by some tapioka bubbles inside their throat while drinking. That was an incident but I've read it. Possible she did it by rush.

  24. I'm not familiar with yuca and cassavas, but I know a yacon supplement that is said to be dietary and help with losing weight. Yacon root is probably different from yuca but I don't know in what way.

  27. It's great you made your own boba bubble drink. I have never tried it. Over 500 calories is a lot for a drink, it's more that most meals. I would like to try it, but I wouldn't make a habit of drinking it.

  30. Super interesting.
    There is a region here in Brazil that the main course
    It's tapioca.
    They eat in the morning, afternoon and evening.
    Eating tapioca is not typical here in my region but
    sometimes I do it at home.
    Good week.
