red bean smoothies simply rock
In response to a comment attached to my coffee shop post
...not only are there red bean smoothies, there are also green bean smoothies, and all sorts of other strange things that I happen to like, such as taro root lattes. I must confess that I get the strangest looks in these places, being the white girl who likes the really off-beat drinks.
I have no less than four bubble-tea places that border my not-all-that-large campus. One is a Tapioca Express
, which doesn't seem to have locations further east than Texas, but does have a web site. It's not my favorite, but it will do. The other cafe is a combo coffee/bubble tea place called (appropriately) Cafe Boba, but it's not all that great. My top two are Hydration Cafe, home of the awesome red bean smoothies, and a brand new Quickly
As for how to make a red bean smoothie, it seems to be equal parts red beans, sugar and ice, with a dash of water to get the blender going. Doesn't seem too difficult, but then again cooking pasta doesn't seem to be too difficult and yet I can never, ever get the noodles to taste like my grandmother's.
