Trying to incorporate more cultured foods into our diet has been really fun! When the kids got up from their naps this afternoon they were less than happy. Actually, Timber was fine, it was Layton that was a grump. As he was lying on the couch he said, "Mommy, I need a milkshake." My first thought was, "Um, no you don't. The last thing you need is ice cream." and then I thought, "Sure, why not? I'll make one- just a different kind." And so the buttermilk shake was born:
Since I didn't measure anything, all of this is a round about estimate of what I used (you could totally improvise!)
2 cups cultured raw buttermilk
2 cups organic frozen blueberries
1/4 cup raw honey
and I added a little whole raw milk just because it was a little on the thick side.I was anxious to see what my kids thought of it since it isn't your traditional sweet milkshake. It's slightly like Kefir- a tad sour. The honey helps though. And I guess they liked it! Which is great, otherwise I would have had an entire blender full of shake for me to eat!
