Blue Berry Buttermilk Ice Cream

Blueberry Buttermilk Ice Cream   Blueberry Buttermilk Ice Cream | @beckywink
Yield: About 1 quart (6-8 servings)
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus freezing time
Cook time: 5 minutes


1 1/2 cups lowfat buttermilk, divided
2 teaspoons gelatin
1/4 cup raw honey
2 cups frozen blueberries (do not defrost)
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract (or lemon liqueur, such as limoncello)
Pinch of sea salt

Place 1/2 cup of the buttermilk in a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin on top. Let the gelatin bloom for 5 minutes, until the surface of the milk appears wrinkled. Set the heat to low and warm the buttermilk, stirring frequently, just until the gelatin dissolves (do not allow the mixture to come to a simmer). Turn off the heat and whisk in the honey until smooth.

Pour the buttermilk and honey mixture into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Add the rest of the buttermilk and all the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.

Transfer the ice cream base to a bowl and freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate for 2 hours to make sure it’s nice and cold. Process in an ice cream maker, transfer to a chilled freezer-safe container, and freeze for 2 hours before scooping and serving. If the ice cream has been frozen much longer than that, let it thaw for about 10 minutes before digging in.
