Keeping things cool with Tahn

It might not be hot where you are, but — believe me — Florida is HOT, a good portion of the year.

So, we try to keep things cool – not just with air conditioning and ceiling fans, but with food, too.

Madzoon, plain yogurt, is always in our refrigerator. One of our favorite hot-weather remedies is Tahn, drinkable yogurt.

Here’s how to prepare Tahn:

add enough water to the plain yogurt, so that it’s thin enough to drink. Crush a little mint, sprinkle a touch of salt, if you like, give it a swirl, and an ice cube.

How easy is that?
