Jorge and I are huge Thai Food fans. Until I met Jorge, I had actually never had Thai food. I wasn’t opposed to it by any means, it just wasn’t something I had ever eaten before. In my defense, Jorge and I met when I was 19…my food choices weren’t much broader than your standard teenager fare.

I remember the first time I went to a Thai restaurant with him. The menu was so big and I didn’t know what half of the things on the menu were. We sat down and I scoured over the menu. We ordered drinks and he asked for a Thai Tea. I figured it was a hot tea (which is soooo not my thing), so I went for the safe option of diet coke.

A few seconds later, the waitress returned with my diet coke and a neon orange iced drink for Jorge. He laughed at the face I was making and told me to just try it. After one highly sugared – neon orange sip, I was hooked. It is now one of my absolute favorite things to have when we go for Thai. Don’t tell Jorge, but I actually sometimes just ask to go have for the Thai Tea alone… 😉

So when I saw the adorable bow tie wearing Alton Brown on GMA a couple weeks ago making Thai Tea Popsicles, I knew I was done for. I HAD to have them! The only special thing I had to pick up from the store was a package of Black Tea and the next day I had these babies in the freezer.

The heat has been brutal these last few weeks in Tampa and I have really enjoyed reaching in the freezer and pulling out one of these flavorful ice pops. I love them so much, next time I am going to make a double batch!

This is a new popsicle mold from what I have used in the past. When we moved I lost my original one…and I’m sorta glad I did, because I really love my new one (<- amazon affiliate link, FYI). It was more than I usually spend ($22), but so worth it!!

Yield: 8 Popsicles

    I LOVE Thai Tea! These popsicles look so fantastic! Whenever I go to my local Thai restaurant I get Thai Tea and Pad Thai – such a delicious combo

    I love Thai food. I had the same expression when I went to a Thai restaurant with my friend for the first time and she ordered a Thai tea. After tasting it, I was hooked and get one whenever I can.

    One of my coworkers brought in Thai iced tea ice cream once and it was super fabulous…but I could totally see pops being EVEN.BETTER.

    I’ve never had Thai tea, but reading the ingredients it sounds like a thicker , sweeter version of Chai. Which I LOOOVE. Can’t wait to try these!!!

  7. Ericka

    Oh wow, I have been craving Thai tea & these look fantastic! 🙂 I’m sure one would do me some good later today – it’s blisteringly hot over on Florida’s east coast too!

    I love Thai ice tea! My husband and I had our first date at a Thai restaurant and it was his first exposure to Thai food. I remember I convinced him to order Thai iced tea and he loved it. This is such a great idea for a Popsicle. Love!!
