Yogurt Drink (Ayran)



One of the most refreshing drinks, ayran is enjoyed throughout the summer in Turkey. It pairs very well with kebaps and bulgur dishes. You will find ayran in most Turkish restaurants in the States as it is very popular. I do not know any Turkish person who does not love it, but I think it is an acquired taste for most Americans. 

The yogurt used in this recipe is home made and whole milk is used. I am not sure if it will taste the same with low fat milk, but I think it still would be very refreshing.  Enjoy!

4 cups yogurt
1 cup cold water
1 tsp salt

Mix the yogurt, water and salt in a blender and blend until smooth (a couple minutes). Pour out in glasses and enjoy cold!

We have a Turkish restaurant that we visit after our visits to the zoo. We order the drink every time. I've been meaning to look up the recipe for so long. It is so easy, I wish I had looked it up earlier. Thank you for the post. I just made yogurt yesterday. I'll be having this drink for breakfast tomorrow.
