We Can’t Get Enough of Trader Joe’s Vegan Cold Brew Boba Ice Cream

It’s the rich coffee flavor and soft, chewy boba for us!

If you’re an avid Trader Joe’s shopper, you likely know all about their tasty vegan ice cream selection, but have you tried the Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coffee & Boba Coconut Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert with Tapioca Pearls? The name is a mouthful, but it’s a mouthful you want to have. The coffee boba ice cream is the perfect combination of two popular foodie favorites—rich cold brew coffee and chewy boba. Not familiar with boba? These popular tapioca pearls originated in Taiwan and can often be found in specialty drink shops that serve bubble tea. It’s the perfect combination, and that’s why we can’t get enough of the Trader Joe’s vegan cold brew boba ice cream!

Trader Joe’s Vegan Cold Brew Ice Cream

For the coffee sippers, boba fanatics, and dairy-free ice cream enthusiasts, this flavor combination is sure to impress your palate! It starts with a creamy coconut milk base, but you won’t find much coconut flavor here. What you will taste is the rich, authentic flavor of cold brew coffee—ok, we’re following! Made from Thai-grown Arabica coffee beans, the Trader Joe’s cold brew ice cream packs an intense coffee flavor that levels up this frozen dessert. As you enjoy spoonfuls of this dairy-free pint, you’ll find those chewy tapioca pearls dispersed throughout. Surprisingly, the boba stays both soft and chewy despite being frozen. And while cold brew coffee and chewy tapioca pearls may seem like an odd pair, the contrast is one of a kind—this is a combination you’ll need to trust us on! The coffee-forward pints supply three servings per container. Each serving contains 230 calories, 9g of fat, and tons of rich, authentic coffee flavor!

Vegan Cold Brew Ice Cream Milkshake

With such a vibrant coffee flavor and creative combination of ingredients, there’s no wrong way to enjoy the Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coffee & Boba Coconut Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert with Tapioca Pearls. The refreshing treat tastes delightful when scooped imperfectly into a sugar cone, served atop a homemade coffee cake or gooey vegan brownie, added to a homemade cold brew coffee float, or eaten directly from the container. Although at times we’re partial to the latter, we love getting creative with our non-dairy frozen desserts. Picture this: You pull out your blender, and then you add a few scoops of the Trader Joe’s coffee boba ice cream, a bit of your favorite non-dairy milk alternative, and a splash of your ready-to-drink cold brew coffee. You blend your mixture until creamy and smooth, pour it into a glass, and top your vegan cold brew ice cream milkshake with plant-based whipped cream and your favorite vegan syrups. One afternoon pick-me-up coming right up! For another adult take on a nostalgic classic, try a scoop of this non-dairy ice cream between two vegan-friendly cookies for a DIY ice cream sandwich. The ice cream truck has nothing on you! Are you drooling yet? Give this coffee boba ice cream a try.

Are you ready to meet your new ice cream bestie? It’s time for the coffee, boba, and vegan ice cream lovers to unite in the vegan-friendly freezer aisles of Trader Joe’s—as if you needed another reason to make a TJ’s run. Now that you know just how tasty this coffee-forward dairy-free Trader Joe’s ice cream can be, stalk the shelves, secure a pint, and get tasting. You can find this frozen dessert alongside several other Trader Joe’s vegan ice cream pints and novelty treats.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
