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!

  1. Bring the water to a boil, then remove from heat and add the tea, clove, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  2. Steep for 10 minutes, then stir in the honey and chill at least 30 minutes.
  3. To serve, fill an 8-ounce glass to the top with crushed or shaved ice, then pour the chilled tea on top.
