In high school, my go-to refreshment for hot summer days was always, always a slushie. From Sonic, usually, which was right across the street from my school. My favorite flavor was strawberry, sometimes with ice cream mixed in. Oh, those were the days. But 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. With the help of coconut milk, honey, and a homemade spice blend, Thai Iced Tea is relatively simple to adapt for the autoimmune protocol. 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, with flavors like Maple Bacon and Pineapple Jalapeno and… Thai Iced Tea. How cool is that? I’m sure they use a lot of high-fructose corn-syrup and added colors, but we don’t have to. Plus, these Thai Iced Tea Slushies only take a few minutes to throw together!
