this is one of my all-time summer favorites,
& so easy to make.
you have to find your own texture and the exactly right
proportion of yogurt, cucumber & water to make it perfect for yourself.
it's worth the 5 minutes it takes to make it, believe me.
& it's so good for us !!
I learned to really like this in the Middle East,
and now my entire family loves it.
it's pretty too...
but, to start with here's the recipe...
Cucumber & Mint Yogurt Drink
2 medium cucumbers. peeled and finely chopped
4 cups full-fat plain yogurt (I use Greek Gods Fat-Free, love the taste & the consistancy)
2 tsp. salt (adjust to taste)
3 cups cold filtered/bottled water. COLD is the key. Or use ICE
1 tsp. dried mint or 1 tbsp fresh chopped mint
Add all of the ingredients in a large pitcher or bowl and stir well. I put mine into the blender and blend until the cucumber is drinkable through a straw. Pour or ladle into glasses that have a few cubes of ice. Garnish with thinly sliced cucumber & the chopped mint.
loving loving this table setting using natural greenery,
also love the little fruits on the plates,
I could go for this all year round using seasonal greens & decorations.
back home, trying to stay alive in this heat !!
