For this week's end-of-the-week recipe blogging, I thought I'd change pace and do something a bit simpler - an Indian yogurt drink called lassi. I've had it many times in Indian restaurants, but only made it at home for the first time yesterday, and both my SO and I loved it. The lassi is creamy, cold, and refreshing, which should make it perfect for those nice cool fall days that are approaching (oh, wait ...)
1.5 cups whole-milk plain yogurt (we use Trader Joe's "Cream Line")
6 tablespoons sugar
10 ice cubes (~1/2 lb.)
1. Mix yogurt and sugar together in a blender.
2. Add ice cubes, and blend until well combined (~1/2 minute).
I told you it was easy.
Other recipes (that are likely more authentic) can be found on the Wikipedia, among other places.
