This little treat is the perfect end to a hearty meal. It’ll help you digest and settle any large meal that you may have over indulged in. Not to mention it tastes freakin awesome! It does require a ice cream maker though.

Do I HAVE TO use buttermilk to make this work?

Instead of buttermilk you can use 1 cup regular milk mixed with either 1 tablespoon lemon juice or 1 tablespoon vinegar. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before using in the recipe. - Elizabeth Schneider 3w ago

Normally it calls for corn syrup. But since that’s one of those non-digestible processed weird things they like to put in everything , I choose to omit it from all my recipes. Using Cream of Tartar once the mixture is boiling achieves the same desired effect without adding any extra sugars(or diabetes causing, non-digestible, processed mutant food). [I posted this recipe.]
