I think I made this Thai iced tea milkshake to tease Miles. I’ve had a bag of Thai iced tea in my cupboard for a while now, and have made popsicles, cake, and now a milkshake, but not the iced tea. Every time I go to make the tea, I see how much I have, and gravitate more towards experimenting with it than making straight iced tea. That’s what happened with my Thai iced tea milkshake. I found an ice cream recipe on food52 and immediately made it. I always keep my ice cream maker container in the freezer just in case I’m feeling spontaneous, and want to make a batch of ice cream. I’m surprised at how often that happens.
Anyway, the ice cream was pretty easy to put together. The recipe called for steeping the tea for 10-20 minutes, but I let mine go for about an hour. I really wanted to make sure that I could taste the tea. The ice cream turned out pretty well, but it wasn’t as firm as I would have liked. Instead of serving it in bowls, I made the milkshake. It was like drinking a nice cold creamy glass of Thai iced tea. Perfect!
