Strawberry-Buttermilk Gelato

I got a vat of strawberries on Saturday during our jaunt to Costco and decided to turn half into this great gelato that i saw in cooking light! Hubby had an ice cream maker and it’s been simply moved between houses since we met. So we had a go at it! This recipe produces ALOT! We had to do 2 batches, which meant, one last night and one this morning! Absolutely delicious!

Strawberry-Buttermilk Gelato


2 cups sugar
2 cups water
5 cups quartered strawberries (about 4 pints)
2 cups low-fat buttermilk


Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Pour into a large bowl; cool completely.

Place strawberries in a blender, and process until smooth. Add strawberry purée and buttermilk to sugar syrup; stir to combine.

Pour the strawberry mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer, and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
