Vegan Ube Boba Milk Tea and Coffee Spice Latte (Three Ways)

Purple-yam infused drinks

Watch How To Make It:

Taro milk tea was soooo 2012. Let’s jump to its hotter, trendier, and purple-ier (more purple!) cousin: UBE.

You can make ube boba milk tea with either the actual ube root, or ube extract. In my opinion, the ube extract makes for a way tastier ube boba milk tea.

Honestly, it is SO simple to make these drinks vegan. All you need is a milk alternative, such as almond or coconut milk, and your choice of either maple or agave syrup!

Watch the video above, and I hope you make your own ube boba milk teas at home!

- Ube Milk Tea Using Real Ube
Boil 1/4 cup of purple yam in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes, or until it's soft enough to mash.

Using a blender, throw in the boiled purple yam, almond milk, agave syrup, and ice cubes (optional). Blend until all the ice cubes have been crushed, and pour into a glass.
