Are you someone who orders a lower percentage of sweetener in your bubble tea? Maybe you like to have your sweetness levels around 50-75% rather than 100%. Maybe even 30% at times! If you’re a boba lover that tends to prefer less sweetness in your typical bubble tea, then the avocado smoothie is right for you!
The avocado smoothie with tapioca pearls is the perfect balance of sweetness and texture without being overpowering in flavor or sugars. (No, seriously). With the creaminess in the avocado, the slight sweetness of the cream and condensed milk and the subtle underlying flavors of fresh green tea, the avocado smoothie with boba pearls is deliciously suited for anyone.
If you’ve never tested your taste buds against something so soothing like this bubble tea, now’s your chance to do it right at home. How to make an avocado smoothie with tapioca pearls coming right up!

How to Make Avocado Smoothie
We know you’re excited let’s quickly get started! Grab your favorite pot (something of this size will work just fine) and fill it with water and have it reach a rumbling boil. Once it is at a rumbling boil, bring the heat down a notch and add in your fresh green tea leaves and let it steep for 6-8 minutes. If you want a highly recommended bag of fresh and premium green tea leaves, try this one from Stash Tea.
At the same time, we’ll have a separate pot of water at a rumbling boil as well but for our tapioca pearls. If you purchased your tapioca pearls from your local Asian market, be sure to follow the instructions on the back of the packaging. It typically takes 15-20 minutes to get the right texture for your tapioca pearls.
While we finish brewing the fresh green tea and cooking up the tapioca pearls until soft, we’ll prepare the rest of the ingredients starting with the fresh ripe avocado. With your favorite kitchen knife (make sure it’s sharp) half your avocado and remove the seed.
With your halved avocado we’ll add this into a blender or food processor. Any blender or even a Nutri Bullet like this that you’ve most likely seen on TV will work just fine. We’ll also include our 1/2 cup creamer (we like using soy milk but any creamer works well). And lastly the few ice cubes and 1-2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk we mentioned above. Now set this mixture aside for now.
By now your green tea should be finished brewing and your tapioca pearls should be completely cooked with the right soft texture.
Tip: Take a bite of the tapioca pearls and determine whether it is the right texture, if not, cook it a bit more. If the texture is very close, give it another 1-3 minutes on the heat. The timer on your phone will help a lot for this process, or you can actually buy a handy kitchen timer like this.
Once everything is brewed and cooked to your liking be sure these two items are cooled to room temperature before adding into the blender. Once cooled, add the remaining ingredients (brewed green tea) into your blender. Begin pulsating or blending the avocado smoothie mixture until you have a smooth puree or smoothie like texture. It shouldn’t appear too runny nor should it be too thick, the right balance is key!
Last but not least, grab your favorite boba cup and add 1/4 cup of tapioca pearls into it. Pour the remainder of the avocado blend into your cup and top it off with a boba straw and enjoy!
