Apricot and Ginger Lassi

Sometimes the best recipe is SIMPLIFICATION. It's a stressful week, so why make it more stressful? Why not clear my schedule of appointments and places to be, have dinner with friends, and spend time in the kitchen with Nelle? 

Yesterday I rescheduled the week's appointments [free as a bird], and you know what? 
Instantly, I felt relief.


I can handle this. All of this. Yes, indeed.

Apricot and Ginger Lassi
serves 3

I don't usually give you recipes with 'specialty' ingredients, but I found apricot juice (nectar) at the organic shops last week and had to give it a try. It's beautiful! Thick and rich and full of flavour! It makes an excellent popsicle. And, it suits the tangy yogurt of the Indian-style lassi so well ... this is a perfect accompaniment to a curry, or just a chill-out drink in the afternoon.

'Cause chilling out is good.

The time
5 minutes

The ingredients
1 1/2 cup plain organic yogurt
1/2 heaped tsp fresh grated ginger
2 cups cold apricot juice

The process
Blend everything and serve as-is or over ice. 

The cost
This cost me about $1.20 per serving, done with organic ingredients.

I love it! I initially made it for Nelle, but with the spiciness of the ginger in there I think it's more a grown-up thing :)
