The star ingredient is ube (pronounced OO-BAE), a purple yam that can be mashed or pureed and incorporated into sweet treats.
But what exactly is boba? The boba (aka the tiny, chewy black balls at the bottom of the drink) is made from tapioca, which is a gluten-free starch extracted from the root of a cassava plant.
You can add it to tons of different drinks (including tea, milk tea, iced coffee or even slushies and smoothies).
At the Dessert Bar @ Halo-Halo Kitchen we offer 15+ Flavors of Boba Slushies.
