Cucumber-Yogurt Smoothie

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Who needs the heat of Summer to enjoy a cooling smoothie on any day? Fall has arrived, but a tad bit late here in Texas and the leaves  have not changed colors yet but there is definitely a hint of chill in the air. And I made a cool cucumber smoothie to sit down and sip on a cold afternoon over the weekend:) This cucumber smoothie is a super-refreshing and cooling, is a perfect blend of flavor and texture with a hint of tartness from the lemon juice. It is not like the yogurt sauce aka the "raita" by any means:) Go give it a try and enjoy!


Persian Cucumbers-2
Yogurt-1 cup
Salt-to taste
Lemon juice-2 tsps
Mint leaves-a handful
Crushed Black Pepper-1 tsp


1. Blend all ingredients until soft and smooth.

2. Pour ingredients into a serving glass and garnish with mint leaves and enjoy!


  1. nice flavorful and refreshing drink!

  2. The cucumber, mint, and yogurt are such cooling ingredients. I bet that this would be amazing after a spicy desi meal! :)

  3. This smoothie sounds so wonderful and refreshing.
