What is a fruity boba?

Until a decade ago, boba tea was still somewhat of a mystery. Today, it's one of the most popular tea drinks worldwide. This doesn't come as a surprise. Boba tea is unique, flavourful, chewy, and fun to drink. Traditional boba is made with tea, and tapioca pearls.

Unlike the traditional boba tea, fruity boba is made with fruit juice rather than milk. It's lighter, often more refreshing, and just perfect for a hot summer day. Fruity boba often lacks the tea ingredient and contains juices and fruit powders instead.

Why Green Apple Boba?

Fruity bobas may be underestimated, but they are so much more than some sugary juice will a topping. This recipe will show you just how tasty a simple drink can be and why it's definitely worth the effort.

This Green apple boba is super easy to make at home and incredibly delicious and refreshing. By using a homemade apple juice, your drink will have plenty of flavour that can't be achieved with pre-made juices. If you ever made a homemade apple puree at home, you know exactly what we mean. Besides, you will avoid all preservatives and unnecessary ingredients, and you'll be able to decide just how sweet you want it to be.

Ingredients for making Green Apple Boba

Green apples: This recipe is best with Granny Smith green apples with natural sourness, crispiness and light sweetness. Other types of green apples may be too tart (cooking apples) or too sweet (golden delicious).

Popping boba: Popping pearls are a great topping for juicy boba tea. They are not chewy like regular boba pearls, and a burst of juicy lychee flavour will add another flavour note to your apple boba tea. You can get Lychee popping pearls on and

Sweetener: To keep the taste as fruity as possible, choose neutral, white granulated sugar. If you want a calorie-free option, Erythritol is a suitable substitute. Alternatively, stevia will work well too, but it will add additional flavour note.

Lemon juice: While this ingredient may look optional, it's actually quite important. A few teaspoons of a freshly squeezed out lemon juice will intensify the sourness and keep apples green. This means you'll end up with a beautiful bright yellow-green rather than a dark yellow drink.

Steps for making Green Apple Boba

Make an apple juice: To make an apple juice, you'll need 150 grams of apples. This will equal 1-2 apples, depending on the size. Wash and peel them and chop into small chunks. Squeeze lemon juice over apple chunks. Simmer it on low heat only, as the juice will otherwise evaporate more quickly.

Assemble the drink: After making the green apple juice, the only thing you'll need to do it to assemble the drink. Make sure to use lots of ice if your apple juice is still hot.

Additional step – add

If you need a caffeine boost, add some green tea to your boba. Steep one teaspoon of green tea leaves in 100 ml of water for 3 minutes at 85 degrees Celsius. Stronger Gunpowder tea or lighter Mao Feng tea will both work well.

  • Wash, peel and chop apples. Sprinkle them with lemon juice immediately.
  • Simmer them in a small saucepan together with 300 ml of water for 20-30 minutes.
  • Let it cool slightly to prevent burning yourself and strain using a cheesecloth.

Add a sweetener into hot/warm tea so it dissolves easily.

  • Top up with lychee popping pearls.
