Where to Find Vegan Boba in LA

These beverages are bursting with flavor!

Is boba vegan? Well, that depends. Most boba is! Traditionally, the chewy pearls are composed of tapioca starch and a handful of other ingredients. But some boba includes honey as a sweetener or comes in a beverage that contains dairy. So, that’s why we’ve created this guide on where to find vegan boba in LA.

Nova Boba

Pop-Up

Vegan events are 10 times better when Nova Boba is there! Because who doesn’t want a delicious boba drink to pair with an epic food spread? From Mango Green, Thai, and Classic Milk Tea to Horchata and Pumpkin Chai Latte, the flavor options are endless.

Options include chai, lavender, rose, brown sugar, taro, original, and Thai. After that, choose your favorite add-ins from boba, lychee jelly, and aloe jelly. And last but not least, enjoy!

Ordering vegan boba in LA is a breeze at Sunright Tea! For starters, the fruit teas are vegan as-is. And the milk teas can be made vegan when you order almond or oat milk. All of the add-ins are vegan aside from the Cheese Foam, Creme Brûlée Foam, Honey Boba, and Pudding.

Boba Zzing

East Hollywood

Vegan-Friendly

While most boba spots use classic sugar, Boba Zzing uses zero-calorie syrups and monk fruit sweeteners. Because of this, their drinks are low in sugar and might feel lighter going down. The plant-based milk options include oat, almond, and soy. And, of course, the boba is vegan!

Boba Guys

Multiple Locations

Vegan-Friendly

Almost every drink at Boba Guys can be ordered vegan! Their cassava-based boba is 100% vegan, as are the aloe jelly and chia seeds. Boba Guys sweetens their drinks with vegan house-made syrup made from brown and white sugar. However, they use honey in some drinks—so keep an eye out for that! In addition, you’ll want to avoid grass jelly, almond jelly, and egg pudding.
