So, quite some time ago I was in high school. And I had friends who were also in high school.

I was at the house of one of these friends in my high school years and she introduced me to something that would be life-changing.

Iced tea powder on vanilla ice cream.

I know it sounds crazy. Just downright, absolutely bizarre in fact.

But we loved it.

Good Host iced tea powder was my drink mix of choice, but Nestea also had some good options. The iced tea powder is a little tangy, with a fresh hint of lemon and it just complemented the creamy, sweet vanilla ice cream in an unreal way.

I was having another one of my moments when I dream up random culinary concoctions, and it came to me: “Iced tea milkshakes”.

The husband was not all that impressed with my idea.

I always have him eating his words later though.

If you’re unsure if you’re into the tangy-milkshake thing, start slow with the iced tea powder, maybe just ½ – 1 tbsp. Keep adding and tasting until you like what you’ve got. My taste tester said it reminded him of lemon meringue. If you’re not into much lemon, you could leave out the extra lemon juice, but then I think you’re losing a lot of that awesome fresh flavour!
