This quick and easy Indian yogurt drink is ideal for the end of summer when sweet, juicy Texas peaches are arriving at the farmers' markets straight from the Hill Country. This drink is quite versatile -- it can be served for breakfast, along with appetizers, as a dessert, or anytime you get thirsty on a hot day.
2 medium Texas peaches Half a cup plain yogurt Half a cup sugar 2 pinches ground cardamom (optional) 15 ice cubes + ice cubes to fill 2 tall glasses
Wash the peaches and chop with the skin on, you should get about 2 cups. In a blender, combine the peaches, yogurt, sugar and 15 ice cubes. Blend until the ice is slushy. Fill 2 tall glasses with the rest of the ice cubes. Pour the lassi into the glasses and garnish with a pinch of ground cardamom if desired. Enjoy immediately. (You can also make the lassi mixture in advance and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.) -- Shubhra Ramineni
