Serves 2 (10 ounces each)
A hint of clove adds an air of sophistication to this lassi, which boosts breakfast with its mix of orange juice and yogurt. If using Greek yogurt, increase the proportion of juice to yogurt slightly to make the lassi thin and drinkable.
- 1 cup plain low-fat or whole-milk yogurt
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 to 2 tablespoons honey, or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3 ice cubes
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Long celebrated as a versatile ingredient in cuisines across the globe, yogurt has recently emerged as a food of nearly unparalleled growth here in the United States. The time has come for a modern, far-ranging cookbook devoted to its untapped culinary uses. In Yogurt Culture, award-winning food writer Cheryl Sternman Rule presents 115 flavorful recipes, taking yogurt farther than the breakfast table, lunchbox, or gym bag. Rule strips yogurt of its premixed accessories and brings it back to its pure, wholesome essence. In chapters like Flavor, Slurp, Dine, and Lick, she pairs yogurt not just with fruit but with meat, not just with sugar but with salt, not just with herbs but with fragrant spices whose provenance spans the globe. She provides foolproof, step-by-step instructions for how to make yogurt, Greek yogurt, and labneh at home, though all of her recipes can also be prepared with commercial yogurt. Rule explores yogurt from every angle, explaining how to read a label, visiting producers large and small, and gaining entry to the kitchens of cooks from around the world. Deeply researched and peppered with stories, interviews, and full-color photographs, Yogurt Culture offers a fresh, comprehensive take on a beloved food.
