Easy Strawberry Desserts!
Earth Fare has had strawberries on sale for a few weeks now and each week I buy more. I’ve used them in fruit salads, smoothies, and even kale salads. I remembered a gelato that I had made years ago – this Strawberry Buttermilk Gelato to be exact. Yes, I originally made this in 2008!
I’m happy to say that this easy 4 ingredient gelato has stood the test of time. It’s amazing. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I originally made it!
4 Ingredient Strawberry Buttermilk Gelato
The best part of this gelato (besides eating it) is that it’s a Cooking Light recipe! So, you get all kinds of flavor and creaminess with lower calories!!
To make this gelato, you begin by making a simple syrup of equal parts water and sugar. I found this to be plenty sweet and I think next time I will reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup and then maybe even by a 1/2. I’ll update after I try it.
After you cool the simple syrup, you place the strawberries, buttermilk and simple syrup into your favorite blender and process until smooth. Pour into your favorite ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
You could also modify this Easy Raspberry Sundae dessert and use strawberries instead of raspberries.
