Summer Refreshment with Homemade Boba Coffee :)

It was 115 degrees outside  this afternoon #-o and therefore I needed something cooler to refresh myself after roaming around in the heat for outdoor shopping. I had bought Tapioca packet a while ago but had never used it and today was the right time to shake me some yummy Boba Tea. I have tasted Boba tea however I haven't tried making one at home. I do not know the recipe of the different chains who sell this tea. I used coffee and the outcome was pretty darn good :) Here you guys, I think this is the easiest recipe on my blog :-b Also, click here for Creamy Spinach-Avocado Smoothie Recipe, Click here for Strawberry Lassi Recipe, Click here for Mango Lassi Recipe .
