Glacial Melt Desserts
by Tea Master DANIELA CUBELIC
An absolutely heavenly quick & easy dessert, Glacial Melts are an instant treat that both kids & adults will love!
To make a Glacial Melt all you need is SILK ROAD tea & vanilla or chocolate ice cream. There are many great non-dairy ice-creams to choose from nowadays!
Steep ANGELWATER tea for 10 minutes in boiling water. Then strain over scoops of ice cream. The hot tea combines with the slightly melting ice cream to create an intoxicating taste sensation!
We recommend trying your favourite teas including: WESTCOAST PEPPERMINT, EARL GREEN, ROSE PETAL, SOUR CHERRY, LONDON FOG
Garnish with fresh mint, chocolate shavings &/or fruit.
Healthy Tip Accompanying this food item with the same tea used in the recipe (hot, iced, or as a tea latte) can enhance the enjoyment of all the flavours, as it adds a layer of complimentary flavour, which amplifies & brightens the taste of all the ingredients. Tea is also a delicious, low-calorie, healthy alternative to alcohol or sugary drinks.
As well, when you’re eating carbs or sweets, it can also be a great idea to reach for teas that help counteract these effects.
Mulberry tea has been used in Asian traditional medicine for hundreds of years as a way to support blood sugar balance & assist weight management. Studies are starting to support these ideas, & are finding that the mulberry can help block carbohydrate absorption.
Detox tea may be an even better choice when having rich or higher-fat foods, as well as carbs & sweets, as the herbs in it were traditionally consumed to counteract all three of these.
Accompanying treats or rich foods with a cup of Detox or Mulberry tea, or having these teas half an hour or an hour after eating, may be a healthier & smarter way to indulge.
