Low Carb and Surprisingly Authentic!
The #1 most consumed beverage in the world is, and has always been, tea! People all over the world have been drinking it for its health benefits and flavor. Thailand is no different. Our time in Asia had gotten us so used to tea readily flowing from every kettle, we continued the tradition when we got back to the States. As much as we enjoy tea, there’s nothing quite like Iced Thai Tea! We set out to find some Thai tea bags and got to work recreating the delicious iced Thai teas we enjoyed overseas.
Finding the Thai tea wasn’t hard, it was creating the right texture in the finished product. Thai tea is traditionally made with condensed and evaporated milk. Not keto-friendly, we know, but what were we going to do? Refuse the Thai people’s favorite drink? Miss out on the cultural experience that is trying, and loving, something new? Nope. We love trying new foods because we’re good at keto-fying them. And that’s just what we did.

It was Rami’s idea to throw in Enlightened’s Salted Caramel ice cream into the hot tea. We once left the pint of ice cream out too long to defrost and ended up with a super soft condensed milk-like mixture. The lightbulb went off in his head and the very next morning, we melted the ice cream in a cup of hot Thai tea and ended up with a surprisingly authentic result!
So we tested 2 ways of making Keto Thai Iced Tea, one easy way, and one more authentic. The easy way involved a good dose of heavy cream and a bit of stevia, something we think most keto-ers have.
Here are 2 simple recipes to get you started enjoying this delicious, Asia beverage at home!
- 1 bag Thai tea
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 6-8 ice cubes
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 8 drops liquid stevia
- 1 bag Thai tea
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 scoop Enlightened Salted Caramel Ice Cream
- 4 drops liquid stevia
- To make the Easy & Sugar-Free Version, steep a bag of Thai tea in 1/2 a cup of boiled water for about 4-5 minutes.
- Remove the tea bag and pour the steeped tea into a serving glass with 6-8 ice cubes.
- Pour in the heavy cream and add liquid stevia to taste. Stir to combine everything and enjoy!
- To make the More Authentic Version, steep a bag of Thai tea in 1/2 a cup of boiled water for about 4-5 minutes.
- Place a scoop of Enlightened Salted Caramel Ice Cream into a serving glass. (You can also use a homemade, sugar free condensed milk recipe in place of the ice cream).
- Remove the tea bag and pour the steeped tea into the serving glass and stir to melt the ice cream.
- Add about 4 ice cubes and liquid stevia to taste. Stir and enjoy!
