Kiwi-Mango Slush

2 kiwi, peeled
3/4-1 cup ice
1/4 cup cubed mango
2 tablespoons ginger simple syrup

boba pearls (optional)


Boil some water, pour in as many boba pearls as desired. Cook until they all float to the top. Place the ice, kiwifruit, mango and ginger syrup in a blender. Pulse until fairly smooth. Pour the boba into the bottom of a tall glass. Top with drink. Serve with a large straw.

Serves one.

My thoughts:

It is finally warm here in sunny Baltimore and I thought it was a perfect time to have a cool drink. I had some especially juicy kiwi and mango and thought they'd make a great, quick frozen drink without having to add any extra liquid. It was very refreshing! I have seen frozen boba drinks in the past, so I thought I'd throw some of the pearls in, but it would be yummy without them too.
