Addicted to Bubble Teas?

Now if you’re like me who drinks the largest size of bubble tea almost everyday, beware. I just learned from that Bubble Tea tops the list as the number one drink to make you fat/obese. Considering these bubble tea shops are popping everywhere in our country from Gong Cha, Cha-Time, Happy Lemon and Serenitea to name a few (oh they’re my faves).

Guess it’s okay to indulge in this drink once in a while (like once a week at MOST) but it’s hard to kick out of the system as it’s sooooo gooood.. 🙁 It’s okay to eat everything as long as it is in moderation

Here’s some more information about our favorite drink:

Bubble Tea with Milk and Tapioca Pearls Nutritional Info:
Oz: 12
Calories: 510
Fat: 20.4g
Carbs: 79.05g
Protein: .6
Sugar: ?g
Calories Per oz: 42.50

How do we try to lower the carbs/calories.. Hmm maybe lesser sugar? Use splenda? Lesser tapioca balls?  and that 12 oz is the smallest size mind you. I sometimes drink the 22oz bubble tea (1,000 calories on a drink alone!)

A healthy alternative would be steeping your own black tea and putting a low-calorie creamer + honey to sweeten it. I haven’t perfected the brew but I hope I will.
