1. Thai Pearl Milk Tea Recipe
If tigers had spots, they would look a like this drink. You’ll need special thick straws for this one, for the tasty tapioca balls. This recipe comes from Rachel at Rachel Cooks Thai, a blog where one lady explores the cuisine of her husband’s homeland. Here’s the full recipe.
2. Thai Tea Ice Cream
Thai iced tea made into ice cream seems like a no brainer, but when I found this recipe I was like, “That’s genius.” Amanda from Amandeleine.com adapted this version of the recipe from Serious Eats, and it’s definitely a winning combination. Check out the full recipe here.
3. Thai-Style Iced Coffee
This one’s actually coffee, not tea, just to add a little more variety into the mix. It is the spice of life, after all, isn’t it? This recipe comes from our friends at Paleo Hacks (visit this link to see the full recipe) and is dairy-free and paleo-friendly. You can even swap out the regular iced cubes for coconut milk ice cubes which will give your drink a creamier texture the longer you drink it, as the ice cubes melt. Check out the full recipe here.
4. Boba Thai Iced Tea Popsicles
This one’s a real treat. Taking that iced tea to the next level by fully freezing it, this delicious bobo thai iced tea popsicle recipe by Shanna at Pineapple and Coconut takes two favorites and combines them into one perfect treat.
