Cool MintyYogurt Summer Soup

 

Blogging the letter Y in the A-Z blogging challenge and I thought I would blog  this delish cooling  yogurt soup which can be eaten cool or warm.  It originated in Turkey & is quite popular in central Asia as well. You can add cooked rice or any other grain to make it more filling. I added some cucumber, tomato and mint to give it some zest and extra flavor. Eaten warm or cold it’s a great tummy soother and is so cool on hot summer day.

Go Yogurt !

Yogurt is highly nutritious and is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium. It provides numerous vitamins and minerals and is relatively low in calories. Rich in probiotics like Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. These probiotics  help maintain the balance of bacteria necessary for a healthy digestive system, boost the immune system, shorten the length and severity of sickness, and may reduce eczema in babies. To read my post on probiotics, click here .
