Have you ever tried Thai tea? It's a refreshing beverage made with Thai tea mix, sugar and sweet condensed milk. The traditional version may be delicious but it's not particularly healthy.
The good news is that you can easily make it with black tea, spices and cream or coconut milk, or even keto condensed milk which I also used to make Vietnamese Iced Coffee. The reason I didn't use Thai tea blend is because it contains dyes which I avoid. Apart from the condensed milk, I didn't add any sweetener. If you're using cream or coconut milk, you may need to add some Erythritol or stevia.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):
- Prepare the Keto Condensed Milk in advance. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil and add the tea, star anise, cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon stick and vanilla powder (or whole vanilla bean cut lenghtwise). Boil over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Take off the heat and let it sit for 30 minutes.
- Strain the tea leaves and spices and discard them. Stir in the Erythritol (if used) and let the tea mix cool completely before serving. I keep it in the fridge until ready to be served. It will last for up to a week. To serve, fill a glass with ice and pour in the tea mix.
- Pour in Keto Condensed Milk (2 tablespoons per glass, or more to taste) or cream or coconut milk.
- Stir or drink without stirring.
