Buttermilk Ice Cream Recipe

Homemade Buttermilk Ice Cream Is Unlike Anything Else

A long time ago, I was watching Martha Stewart, and she mentioned that her favorite ice cream was buttermilk flavored. For some reason, I've always remembered this, and when I purchased an ice cream maker, I was determined to make it. However, I got distracted by more glamorous flavors, strawberry, mint chip, vanilla bean, and only recently remembered my desire to try Martha's buttermilk ice cream.

Boy, does Martha know what she is talking about: this was one of the best ice creams I've ever tasted. It's creamy, but sorbet-like, tangy, and rich. One guest described it like frozen pound cake. Another simply could not stop mmm-ing. And me? I'm still dreaming of this lusciously wonderful ice cream. Although you need an ice cream maker, the recipe is shockingly easy. Learn it when you read more.

I love making banana soft serve for ice cream. Adding cocoa and a bit of non-dairy milk for a melted fudgsicle flavor. Perfect for the lactose-intolerant!!
