Blend and Strain
In a blender place the cucumber, mint, dill, and lemon juice. Blend on low until roughly chopped, once at this state increase the speed until it is pureed. Strain the juice through a 100 micron superbag. Reserve 300g (1 ¼ cup) of juice for the recipe.
Dry mix the salt and Gellan gum LT100.
Combine and Heat
Pour the juice into a clean blender and begin blending on low before sprinkling in the salt and Gellan gum LT100. Once blended pour the liquid into a small heavy bottom pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from heat once the mixture comes to a full boil.
Place the yogurt in the blender and begin blending on low. Slowly pour in the Cucumber liquid. If any of the cucumber liquid has gelled simply use a rubber spatula to scrape it into the blender. Blend on medium speed for 1 minute or until smooth.
Cool and Serve
Place the liquid in a container and cool for 2 hours or until it has cooled before serving.
