This is one of my favorite variations on a traditional ice cream and actually results in a lighter consistency that might be closer to a sherbet. The method is basically the same as the vanilla ice cream, but the buttermilk gives the final product a really nice, tangy flavor.

While I’ve provided the basic recipe below, I highly recommend trying this ice cream with any kind of stone fruit (peaches are my favorite). Just add about a cup of finely chopped fruit near the end of the churning process. The sweetness from the fruit is perfect with the tangy buttermilk.

This is definitely ice cream that you can’t find in the store!
