A delicious blend of spices and a splash of coconut milk gives this iced tea a little something special. This Coconut Thai Tea is free of dairy and refined sugar. Optional bubble tea variation also included!
In the heat of the summer, chilled fresh foods and drinks are what I crave throughout the day. I’ll take that hot coffee on ice, a salad instead of that soup, and a smoothie bowl over that bowl of oatmeal, please and thank you.
This quick and easy variation of iced tea has quickly become a favorite, not merely for its beauty alone, but for its warm and creamy flavor. You can buy prepackaged Thai tea mixes, but many have weird additives and food coloring added, to give it a vibrant color. This version is much more fresh and made with a delicious blend of exotic spices, including cardamon, cinnamon, anise, and cloves. A splash of vanilla complements the spice, along with the addition of creamy coconut milk.
We enjoy this drink over ice and sometimes even make it into bubble tea by adding tapioca pearls. You can find the pearls in most Asian markets, along with the wide straws which makes drinking them much easier. I included the instructions below, but the pearls are totally optional. The tea tastes the same either way. 😉Print
