If you’ve never had a savory lassi before, this is a good one to start with because it is very mild. For more adventurous lassi fans and for a more pronounced yellow hue, feel free to use a heavier hand with the turmeric.

½ cup ice water
1 small cucumber, peeled if desired, and ends trimmed, cut into quarters
⅛ teaspoon ground turmeric or ½ teaspoon grated fresh turmeric root
Generous pinch salt
Fresh lemon juice to taste
Finely shredded mint, for garnish
