Sweet Yogurt Drink (Sweet Lassi)
In a blender, process the yogurt, ice water, and sugar (and rose water, if desired) until the mixture is frothy. Serve over ice (with a splash of half-and-half in each glass, if desired).
A good-quality yogurt is essential in preparing a tasty lassi. Homemade yogurt (p.9) from whole milk is best for this drink- it gives the drink a wonderful richness and depth.
