Originating in Bangkok, Thailand, this Thai ice tea recipe turns the deliciously refreshing drink into a creamy ice cream float. Similar to a traditional soft drink ice cream float recipe, this Thai ice tea float uses delicious tea as the drink's base, instead of a pop drink.
The standard pop drink float usually consists of a serving of your favorite soda -- like orange pop or root beer -- with a serving of vanilla ice cream placed over top. In this case, the Honestly Yum blog uses freshly brewed Thai tea that is cooled to make an ice tea. Instead of ice cream, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla are used to make a homemade vanilla ice cream. After the tea is cooled, add soda water and helping scoop of the homemade ice cream to create a deliciously refreshing Thai ice tea float.
