I’ve stopped drinking coffee for a bit. It’s too hot and it was bothering my stomach. But I still want something to sip in the morning before I sit down for breakfast. On cooler mornings a cup of tea does the trick, but lately it’s been too hot to want anything warm to drink. I’ve switched over to making a sweet lassi. Sometimes I’ll make a large one and that’s all I need for breakfast, but usually I just want a little something to tide me over while I read a bit, put away dishes, and check my email. Then I’ll fix some toast and sliced tomatoes or a scrambled egg or something. If I keep doing this regularly, I’ll get back into my yogurt making habit too.
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup ice water
- some ice
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- a dash of salt
- a sprinkle of rosewater optional, but a nice touch if you can find some
- Blend all this in a blender, then drink
For me, it’s got a perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. It would also make a nice afternoon pick-me-up.
