The Minimalist Baker blog put together a recipe for dairy-free Thai iced tea. While regular iced tea can be somewhat mild, traditional Thai iced tea is more sweet and flavorful. The sugary taste of this black tea beverage is achieved through the use of dairy-heavy condensed milk.

This alternative recipe shows you how to make the same creamy iced tea beverage without the use of dairy. Instead of using condensed milk, the vegan recipe calls for a combination of light coconut milk, maple syrup and coconut sugar ingredients. The rest of the beverage is made from loose leaf black tea. The use of coconut milk provides a creamy texture while the other ingredients help to sweeten the drink. The end result is a vegan-friendly version of traditional Thai iced tea.
