YIP cool drink at Aventura Mall

Appropriately named “Miami’s dumpling shop,” which also serves the best boba tea! If you haven’t tried this delightful drink before, we can confidently say you are missing out! Originating in Taiwan in the 1980s, boba milk tea (AKA bubble tea), is typically made with sweetened tea, milk and tapioca pearls. It’s often served cold with a wide straw for sipping up the chewy tapioca pearls. But wait… it gets better! Now instead of only tapioca pearls, you can choose from popping boba in a variety of flavors like green apple, strawberry and mango, or opt for bite-sized lychee or passion fruit jellies. Next, you can choose up to two flavors, such as blue coconut matcha, taro or Thai. While milk is traditionally used, milk alternatives like almond and oat, or none at all are also perfectly acceptable options. Either way, you’re going to end up with a phenomenal drink that will leave you feeling refreshed on a scorcher.

Joe & The Juice

If ice-cold juices are more your speed, then head to Joe & the Juice! It’s got a vibey atmosphere, friendly staff and exceptional beverages that are all crafted with the highest-quality fresh ingredients. One highly sought-after choice is the Pick Me Up – This delightful concoction features a blend of apple, banana and strawberries, creating a symphony of fruity flavors that will tantalize your taste buds and provide a much-needed burst of refreshment. Another notable option is the invigorating Green Tonic, a rejuvenating elixir made with a combination of celery, cucumber and kale. This vibrant blend of ingredients offers a revitalizing experience, perfect for those seeking a healthy and energizing beverage.
