Buttermilk Ice Cream

Are you a fan of tangy frozen yogurt? If so, this buttermilk ice cream will blow your taste buds away! It’s tart and tangy and totally reminds me of unsweetened yogurt, but then I added the Luxardo Cherries to it and the sweet and tangy come together in an explosion of yumminess in your mouth.

Creamy Buttermilk ice cream starts with a egg yolk base and sweetened with Maraschino Cherries.

Ok, so explosion might be a bit, but it was really, really good. I loved this combo!

My first introduction to Luxardo Cherries was while on vacation in Hawaii this past summer. I was invited to the Four Seasons Hualalai for dessert where I was served them in a Chocolate Zuccotto. Needless to say, I loved them and I don’t think I’ll be going to back to regular old maraschino cherries.

Have you had them before? I’ve heard wonderful things about them in cocktails. In fact, this past weekend, I was out to dinner and they had a drink that was served with Luxardo Cherries and juice! WOW!

I know that the price tag is a bit daunting, but really, it’s so worth it.

Real Ice Cream needs to be churned. This buttermilk ice cream has 6 egg yolks, cream, sugar, vanilla, and buttermilk.

The Four Seasons actually served a chocolate ice cream with the Zuccotto… I just happened to have six egg yolks from a failed macaron attempt and this ice cream recipe just about jumped into my lap. The new macaron recipe was such an ultimate failure that I came back to my trusty recipe from Sprinkle Bakes and found this buttermilk ice cream just waiting to be made.

It was fate. I swear by it!

The tangy buttermilk ice cream is sweetened with some cherries and chocolate sauce.
I loved this ice cream and I’m sure that you will too. You can add just about any fruit to sweeten up the buttermilk. Or mix in some candy and have a fun dessert!

Enjoy!

This dessert is part two of a three part series including Amartti Cookies and Chocolate Zuccotto.
