Vegan Watermelon Boba with a twist of lime and Tajin! Who doesn’t love boba? Actually my husband, he dislikes boba but that means more for me. This watermelon boba slushie is great on a hot summer day. I found boba at my local Japanese market here in Los Angeles and never tried making it at home before. Although it wasn’t difficult, it takes awhile to cook on the stove so give yourself some time if you’re craving some boba. I think you can make it and set in the fridge but I haven’t tried that myself. I used it right away because I was so excited. This is a non alcholic version but I won’t judge if you decide to. spike this!

It took me years to try Tajin, I was never against it but I was clueless on how amazing it was! Naturally, I’m now obsessed with Tajin and trying to get creative using it in recipes. I love all things fruit and I think I’m going to try a strawberry kiwi slushie next time. Let me know your favorite way to use Tajin in the comments!
