Cucumber Mint Lassi 黄瓜薄荷酸奶昔


It's mid summer and it's also harvest time for cucumber. It is fascinating how nature has it, the coolest produce's harvest time is also the hottest of the seasons!

When the temperature outside reaches 90-ish these days, I decided to go out to my garden, pluck a cucumber and a handful of mint leaves. Chill them a little in the fridge. And blend them into this cooling and ever so refreshing Cucumber Mint Lassi, and I thank nature for what it provides!

盛夏,院子里的黄瓜进入盛产季节。大自然真是奇妙,天气最热的时候长出来的瓜果却是最降温的好东西。

九十几度的午后,院子里摘来新鲜的黄瓜,一小把薄荷叶,洗净冷藏一会儿,做成这个清凉养胃的黄瓜酸奶昔,喝下,很舒服喔!


Ingredients:(For 2)
1 cucumber (around 6 inches long)
1/4 inch ginger root ( skinned and mince)
1/3 cup mint leaves
1 cup low fat yogurt
1 tbsp lime/lemon juice (Optional)
1 tsp Honey (To make salted version, use salt instead)
1/2 cup drinking water, chilled

材料:(二人份)
1 根 黄瓜 (中国黄瓜,美国黄瓜都行)
1/4 寸老姜 (去皮切小块)
1/3 杯 薄荷叶
1 杯 低脂酸奶
1 tbsp 青柠汁/柠檬汁 (Optional)
1 tsp 蜂蜜 (如果做咸味的,用盐代替蜂蜜)
1/2杯 饮用水




1. Cucumber from my garden

2. Clean and cubed/mince all ingredients as required, remove mint leaves from stem, blend all ingredients listed in a blender until it is smooth.

1. 把材料清理干净,黄瓜切块,薄荷叶摘下和其他所有材料搅拌机里搅拌均匀,就可以了。

Note:if ice cube is added, reduce water accordingly.
注:如果要加冰块,可以酌量减少水的用量。

Its yummy, it's cooling, it's beautiful!

  5. Wendy, The ginger is very less, its more like helping in opening up appetite... you could omit that as you prefer....
