Bubble tea – the alternative person’s drink


Two years ago, I tried bubble tea for the first time. I ordered the mango fruit tea with tapioca, which I thought would taste nice but I didn’t like it. I think the tapioca put me off. It was squidgy and rubber-like. I then decided to give it another shot, but at a different vendor. Moocha gives you the option of having popping bubbles with your bubble tea, in an assortment of flavours; mango, passion fruit, cherry and lychee. So then I ordered the mango fruit tea with these popping bubbles – life changing!

When I first heard of popping bubbles, I thought it was going to be fizzy, and I’m not very keen on fizzy drinks. As apprehensive as I was, I decided to try it out anyway and I’m so glad I did. When you bite into a popping bubble, it’s like a burst of juice on your taste buds! So refreshing, especially on a summer’s day. If you ever want to try out bubble tea, definitely try it with popping bubbles if you have the option.

I introduced my friend to bubble tea over the weekend. The picture above is what we ordered; I always get the mango, but she tried the lychee. She agrees with me – bubble tea is life changing!


Breakfast for dinner – Nutella banana pancakes


I had three very ripe bananas but didn’t know what to do with them. I was going to use one as part of my DIY hair conditioning recipe, but then my stomach rumbled so pancakes happened.

I added oats to the mixture as well, for extra goodness and fibre…don’t forget to love your colon! The pancakes turned out really soft, and there were no lumpy bits because the bananas had softened the oats in the mixture.

And then Nutella happened. Everything ends up being amazing after Nutella.

Breakfast for dinner is the way forward!
