As the heat of summer rolls on, I was delighted to stumble across this recipe on Elanas Pantry and then learn that, in fact, Rooibos is allowed on the diet (thanks, shayfo!). 🙂 Of course modifications were made….http://www.elanaspantry.com/thai-iced-tea/ for the original recipe.
I steeped mine in a glass measuring cup, then poured it over ice in a large mason jar.
2T loose rooibos or 1 teabag 2c boiling water 1/4t vanilla extract (is almond allowed, if we can find an alcohol-free version?) 1/4 to 1/2 packet stevia (I’m not a fan of this stuff, but a little sweetener is better than none in iced tea!) 2 handfuls ice cubes 1/2c coconut milk
Pour boiling water over tea. Add vanilla extract and stevia. Steep for 15 minutes. Strain tea over ice cubes. Pour milk over, gently stir and enjoy!
**While this is really refreshing in the summer, remember that dried tea leaves can potentially contain mold, so try to limit yourself to one cup per day!
