Yogurt Cucumber Mint Cooler

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kath in CA

This drink is popular in Afghanistan where it is so very hot much of the year, and it's a very cooling and healthy drink, providing you like cucumbers and mint. Leave one or the other out if you prefer. If you plan to transport it a ways, I prefer to use whole ice cubes so they don't melt as fast. Another option is to drain the yogurt overnight for a thicker drink.

Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. It was simply GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I have made yogurt drinks before, but never tried to use crushed ice. Did I say the recipe was GREAT! LOL It surely was. I added a lot of finely chopped cucumber and used my own home made yogurt (rich and creamy). Also, besides the crushed mint leaves, added salt. Later on I made a second batch and put it into the refigerator. SS
