Cardamom Lassi

The sultry heat of summer saps my strength and makes me dread going outdoors.
I close my eyes and dream that I am on the coast of Maine watching the ocean waves as they crash on the rocks below.
I can almost feel the spray of salt water on my face and feel the ocean breeze as it ruffles my hair.
I want to be far away from the Texas heat... the noise... the pollution...

So, I go to the kitchen to fix a cool soothing drink to calm my spirit.

I venture to say that most people do not know the smell or taste of cardamom. It happens to be a favorite of mine.
Years ago I made an applesauce recipe that was flavored with cardamom and I fell in love with it.

So today I pull out a recipe from Saveur magazine for a Cardamom Lassi... perfect for a day such as this and so very easy.

3 Tbsp. SUGAR

Put all ingredients into a blender and purée until well combined.
Divide lassi between 2 glasses and chill for 30 minutes.
(If you prefer, you may add a little ice as you blend the ingredients and then serve immediately.)
