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!

    Did you leave coconut milk out of the recipe?

    Christina– does the recipe have coconut milk? Co fused by the pic and description above. Mentions the coconut milk being added but not included in the recipe. Thanks for clarifying.

    Looks great! Is it supposed to have coconut milk in the ingredient list? I am not seeing it. Do you just pour it on top? Thanks!

  • Allison C says

    How much coconut milk? It’s not in the ingredients list.

  • I have everything in my kitchen except black teas but this recipe is really refreshing so I am really interested in trying this.

  • I loved Thai Iced Tea growing up! Honestly, since being on my healing journey I haven’t had it in years. Thank you so much for this recipe. I can’t wait to try it! Blessings, Jennifer

  • Kelli says

    To be clear, you can have black tea on the AIP?

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Kelli, yes, black tea is fine, but we’d advise not overdoing it because of the caffeine, which can be both stimulating to the immune system as well as taxing to the adrenals. Good luck!

    There is a wonderful Chai product from Blue Lotus Chai that uses Rooibos which is naturally decaffeinated… It is a great tasting alternative in the world of Chai… with the perfect flavor profile! Coconut cream or milk can be drizzled over the top… I personally have discovered that Trader Joe’s has one of the cleanest canned Organic Coconut milks on the market… the can is 100% lined and there exists NO Guar Gums… commonly found in coconut milk… both organic and conventional brands…
