Sweet Basil Seed Drink

At the left is a glass of Thai sweet basil seed drink. It's delicious--the seeds become soft with a consistency similar to eating watermelon. Also, according to Thai tradition, this drink also helps a person lose weight.

Thai Ice Cream with Basil Seeds & Chocolate-Ginger Ganache

Ice cream is served throughout Thailand just as it is in many countries. Often served by bicycle vendors or via motorized carts, as shown in pictures below. Here is a basic ice-cream recipe using coconut, the most common ice-cream flavor, producing a rich, creamy ice-cream we know you'll enjoy. We've enhanced it with sweet basil seeds, giving an interesting texture & subtle fruit flavor. We highly recommend that you make this recipe just as described, served with the chocolate-ginger ganache and fragrant Thai cookies. It's an unbelievably perfect balance of flavors, the type of dessert found in the most prestigious, not just Thai, restaurants. This dessert really spans the international spectrum of culinary appeal, people will rave about it for weeks after trying it.

Idea: Dairy Queen in Thailand offers Thai ice-cream topped with pandan sticky rice.
