The Food52 blog produced a recipe for a frozen granita dessert that mimics the flavors of traditional Thai iced tea. The beloved Thai drink consists of black tea, lemongrass and dried pandan leaves. The tea is brewed until it is extremely strong and then finished with a layer of sweetened condensed milk.
This recipe takes traditional Thai iced tea and turns it into a tasty frozen granita. Instead of simply chilling the tea after it is brewed, this recipe suggests putting it in the freezer until completely frozen. The granita can then be served in bowls with condensed milk on top. The result is a fresh new dessert that boasts dramatically contrasting textures and flavors. The dish features the same fragrant spices as traditional iced tea, but with the added texture of icy granita.
The tasty dessert is the perfect way to put an unexpected twist on a classic Thai drink.
