Oreo’s creamy, chocolaty flavor perfectly complements the chewy tapioca pearls, perfect for sweet tooth cravings or a hot day. I tried it recently, and I’m blown away by how something so good is so easy to whip up in just 5 minutes or less! This easy-to-make delicious Oreo boba recipe won’t disappoint!
What’s the Taste of Oreo Boba?
The taste of the Oreo boba will leave your taste buds craving more. The first thing you taste when you sip this Oreo bubble tea is the chocolaty flavor of Oreos. Milk tea balances the flavor and adds creaminess, so it’s not too sweet, but definitely satisfying.
I love the texture of boba pearls in my Oreo boba. They are chewy and slightly sweet. What I love the most about boba pearls in my bubble tea is they are a great way to break up the creaminess of the milk tea.
Next, comes the syrup and Oolong tea. The syrup adds a mild sweet flavor. But, the tea flavor is strong and prominent in the drink. I’m glad that the tea flavor is balanced by the chocolaty flavor of Oreos because I don’t like the strong tea flavor in my boba tea.
And last but not least, whipped cream is the cherry on top. So, if you need a chocolaty, chewy, and creamy drink this summer, you should definitely try Oreo boba!
Why I Love Oreo Boba?
I’m a huge fan of boba tea, but if you ask me to name one flavor I’m not getting over very soon is this Oreo Boba. Here are some reasons why I loved it so much!
Easy to make. It takes no more than 5 minutes and easily available ingredients, so it’s everyone’s cup of tea. You can make it yourself without hassle.
Unique flavor. Classic Oreos and chewy boba pearls give it a unique and hard-to-resist flavor. You’ll feel like a cream and cookies milkshake, but it’s better.
Versatile. I love this the most about my Oreo boba; it’s so easy to customize. I have tried making it with different milks and different toppings.
Perfect for every occasion. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing treat on a hot summer day or for a kid’s party, it’s always a good choice.
I’m glad that this heavenly drink needs just 5 simple ingredients to make a perfect cup of Oreo boba at home.
Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea that’s used for a caffeine boost in your Oreo boba. It’s not as strong as black tea, but still, the rich earthy and smooth, mellow flavor makes it a great addition. You can also use black tea or green tea if you don’t like its flavor.
Without a doubt, Oreos are the star ingredient in Oreo boba for any chocolate lover. They are chocolaty, creamy and add unique crunchiness to the bubble tea.
Want a creamy texture of your boba tea? Full-cream, low-cream, dairy, or non-dairy, the choice completely depends on how you like your boba tea. Non-dairy options like coconut, soy, and almond milk will also work great.
Black Boba pearls
Also known as tapioca pearls, black boba adds an appealing and satisfying texture to the drink. The bouncy and chewy texture is more prominent if you use fresh boba pearls.
The syrup adds the desired sweetness to Oreo bubble tea. You can use any syrup you like that can pair perfectly with the flavor of Oreos. Simple syrup is made by dissolving equal parts of granulated sugar and water in a saucepan until reaching a thin honey-like texture. But you can also use brown sugar syrup or lychee syrup.
