In Greek: αριάνι, pronounced ah-ree-YAH-nee
It sounds too simple to be a “recipe,” and may sound too strange to be tasty, but once you get used to this yogurt drink, it’s a refreshing non-alcoholic cooler. Some say it’s a great cure for hangovers. This drink is originally from Turkey, and in areas of Greece with large populations of Greeks of Turkish descent, it has become widely known.
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 2 cups of plain Greek yogurt
- 2 cups of water
- salt to taste
In the blender, mix the yogurt, water, and salt to taste until very foamy on top. Serve over ice.
Note about the salt: Many prefer this without salt, so if you’ve never had it before, consider starting without salt, blend, and taste. Then add a little salt, blend some more and taste. Continue until you get it perfect for your taste.
