5-Minute Ayran Recipe (Turkish Yogurt Drink)
Ayran is a savoury and delicious yogurt drink made with only 3 ingredients: yogurt, water and salt. Give this Turkish drink a try!
Servings 6 servings
- 2 cups full fat yogurt
- 2.5 cups cold water
- 2 teaspoons dry mint
- ½ - 1 teaspoon salt, per preference
- Ice cubes when serving
- Fresh mint when serving
Pour the yogurt in a jug (if your jug has a wide enough mouth, you can mix it directly inside. Otherwise use a bowl).
Whisk the yogurt to smooth out any lumps.
Add half the water and whisk.
Add the rest of the water, dry mint, and salt and whisk well until combined. Taste and adjust the water and salt.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Add ice cubes if serving right way.
Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy!
- Plain yogurt or Greek yogurt can be used for this recipe
- The mint is optional - this drink is also served plain without any mint (for anyone who isn't a mint fan!)
- If you're going to add ice cubes and have the drink last a while, make sure you make it on the thicker side so that it doesn't end up being too watery when the ice melts
