Low Fat Thai Iced Tea Recipe

This post comes from our contributor FP Naomi.

As spring takes hold, the art of the iced drink regains its importance. We want a cold drink in our hand and the sunshine on our face. After spending four months deprived of both, who can blame us?

So the ice gets poured into the cup, and then what? How about a drink that no one would ever expect outside of a restaurant? How about Thai Iced Tea? We all love it, and it’s so easy to make it yourself. Enjoy a cold glass of this herbal and vanilla sweet treat – the healthy way!

  1. ChicTrends – good question! Thai tea is made with a green tea blend, so it will give you caffeine, but probably not as much as coffee.

  2. Alicia, you’re right! I think I’ll skip the Fd & C Yellow Number 6 and make this with regular green tea.

  3. This looks delicous! I’ve been going without my usual coffee this week and opting for tea…this sounds like the perfect weekend alternative. ♡

  4. Can’t wait to try this at home! Thai tea is one of my favorite treats. Instead of the Thai tea mix, I’m going to try the Thai tea bags I bought at Central Market.

  5. Pantai is indonesian word for beach. Just want to shout it out there hehe. And this looks heavenly! But I’d probably subtitute it with normal black tea though :)
