Egyptian Sahlab Drink (healthy version)

Based on 39 ratings

"Sahlab is my favorite Egyptian street drink. It's the number one drink in every local coffee shop in the streets of Cairo and Alexandria. A thick creamy white drink, normally made of a white flour called Salep, which is obtained from the dried tubers of white orchid. Egyptians love it in the winter as it provides loveable warmness to the body. Here I share my personal Sahlab recipe, that uses only healthy ingredients!"
