Bubble Tea

Hello! I'm trying to find the carb count of Bubble tea. I tried at a vender in the mall. It was so good! It was a small cup (smaller than Starbucks small), and I only drank half because it was very sweet.

"bubbles" - Tapioca balls

The lady said there was no added sugar other than honey - which I consider is a natural sugar. She also said it was regular creamer used.

Can anyone help me out? I havn't had hardly any carbs today so I indulged. Next time I plan on asking for little or no honey.

Hi crystal…

Bubble tea is fun - we make a kid's version with a big blob of Chia gel in Crystal Lite and hand em a straw...I tell them it's frog eggs or frog eyes.

If you make a thick gel (6:1 ratio or thicker) it makes nice little treats to the mouth like a mini-version of the bubbles in bubble tea - with virtually no carbs.

You are fine. A small is probably 12 oz or less...

Holy cow thats a big carb count I was hoping it would be a bit lower because I love those things. I could never just drink half either.

WOW! What a neat idea!!!! I'm a crazy tea-a-holic lol! So I would use maybe a spicy chai tea instead of the crystal Lite. The drink was so sweet that I couldn't drink the rest if I tried lol!! It definitly would make a fun kids' drink =D

This thread is super old so it's not like anyone was asking, but there's a great recipe for LC bubble tea using shirataki miracle rice, too! I think it's on Maria Mind Body Health.

I've done this except used club soda to mix the crystal lite instead of water super bubbles

You can also make your own bubbles with gelatin. I used to make coconut cream and lime flavored bubbles in elderflower cordial and club soda with a drizzle of palm sugar syrup on top. Waaaay too carby these days!

You could still make a low carb equivalent, though. I love the suggestion for chia seed and will have to try that at some point.

To make gelatin bubbles use sugar free jello and coconut cream. Make the jello as normal but add a pack of unflavored gelatin to the mix. This helps the bubbles remain bubbles in the tea. If you want to use coconut cream, reduce water by .25 to .5 depending on how thick the cream is. Don't add the cream until all the gelatin is dissolved or you may end up with a granular mess. Then set the jello in a pan and cut into fine squares.

A more labor intensive option is to drizzle drops into ice water and strain for roundish bubbles. I have also heard of people adding the chopped bubbles to a tupperware container with a bit of water and then swishing them around until the edges are dissolved and the bubbles more round but I've never tried that.

Once you have your bubbles add to your choice of tea and enjoy!
