Yogurt Drink


        1 pt. laban (yoghurt)
        1 cup cold water

Buy yoghurt or laban prepared from whole milk. Lift off the yellow crust of cream on the top. Mix the rest of the yoghurt with the water and salt in an electric blender, or beat well together using a wooden spoon. Serve well chilled.
