As a kid, my go-to refreshment for hot summer days was always, always a slushie. From Sonic, usually. Strawberry, sometimes with ice cream mixed in. Oh, those were the days. As I grew up and began exploring cuisines outside the realm of fast food, my preferences changed. Once I was exposed to Thai Iced Tea, nothing else would do. With a bit of caffeine and plenty of sugar, it was always a welcome pick-me-up to ward off the Texas heat and that mid-afternoon slump we all tend to fall into.
Thai Iced Tea is relatively simple to adapt for the AIP with a bit of coconut milk and honey instead of sweetened condensed milk and a homemade Thai tea that omits the unsafe spices. But why stop there? I’ll admit I got the idea to combine my childhood and adulthood favorites from a local food truck that serves adult-friendly sno-cones. They’ve got flavors like Maple Bacon and Pineapple Jalapeno and… Thai Iced Tea. How cool is that? I’m sure they still use a lot of high-fructose corn-syrup and added colors, but we don’t have to. This AIP-friendly version takes only a few minutes to throw together!
- Bring the water to a boil, then remove from heat and add the tea, clove, cinnamon, and vanilla.
- Steep for 10 minutes, then stir in the honey and chill at least 30 minutes.
- To serve, fill an 8-ounce glass to the top with crushed or shaved ice, then pour the chilled tea on top.
