soy berry layered smoothie with rainbow boba!

did you know there exists such a thing as rainbow boba??  uh huh.  i'm not sure if i'll ever go back to buying the dark colored ones again.

this idea sprung from one of dirt bike man's kitchen experiments and our insatiable late-night sweet tooth.  yeeeeeeah.  we have those a lot.  anyways!

well.  dirt bike man mixed a batch of vanilla soy ice cream for me late one night (come on, say "awww!") and we were too impatient to let it freeze all the way sooo we made smoothies instead!  and of course, i had to add my special touch which meant cooking up some rainbow boba that i had been saving for a rainy-day (and THAT day had come).

mmmmmm, and the layers are so fun to drink up.  some of it is sweet and the other part is tart...AND THERE IS RAINBOW BOBA ALL IN BETWEEN!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
