Ayran is truly one of my fave drinks when I’m all hot and bothered.
The turkish tend to drink it with anything but they find it compliments a lot of their pastry dishes and kebabs.
It will cool the mouth but also the body. If it’s a mega hot day in turkey and your getting a little bothered and feeling “you just can’t handle the heat” don’t just grab for the nearest ice lolly! Pop into a local little shop/market/bar/takeaway and grab a carton of Ayran Take a seat and enjoy it!!! If you are at home and fancy it….. no worries. It’s dead easy to make!!
- 400G tub of natural yorgurt
- 2 cups of cold tap water (soda if you prefer)
- A pinch or two of salt.
Mix all ingredients in a large jug and whisk to your hearts content until everything mixed together and tasting amazing! Keep adding more salt to your taste (remember it’s not a sweet drink but rather salty as it’s putting the salt back in your body.)
Feel free to pop it all in a blender with some ice and make it extra cold and frothy.
You can also add fruit and mint ect to make it into a flavoured type smoothie, or even soda water to give it a fizz! This isn’t the traditional way but some people love it!
Enjoy on its own or with a meal ❤️
