Spiced Yogurt drink

Some of you might wonder why is the title of the post Yogurt drink and not Buttermilk !  Buttermilk is traditionally a liquid left after churning butter from the cream whereas this recipe uses simple plain yogurt 🙂

Homemade yogurt drink is a simple recipe that can be made in a jiffy. This drink is not only easy to make but gives you a soothing feeling when you gulp it down. A full glass of chilled butter milk does wonders after a spicy meal.

This recipe has some of the spices that aid in digestion and helps soothe the tummy too 🙂

So here is my recipe for ‘Spiced Yogurt Drink’ 🙂
