Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet

 
Michelle Stern is the woman responsible for my child uttering these words,

"Will you call Dad and ask him to pick up some kale on his way home?"  

Yes. My child. Said. Those. Words.   All thanks to Michelle's Kale Chips.

So, when Michelle asked if I would like to try a recipe from her new book, The Whole Family Cookbook,  and share it with you on the blog, I said, "sure!"   (And flipped straight to the dessert section.)
 
The Whole Family Cookbook is perfect if you want to get your kids involved in the kitchen.  I think my favorite part of the book is how Michelle has each recipe's steps color coded for different aged helpers.

The book also contains lots of "green" tips, tips on eating healthy and local, and I'm guessing she probably wouldn't be happy to know I like canned frosting.  I think the kale chips balance that out.

But, anyhoo...

Michelle's Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet is super tangy and really refreshing in the warmer weather we've been having here in Texas.  Kiddo & I both love lemon...and the combination of the lemon and buttermilk really packs a tart punch!  And it couldn't be easier to make.

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet
{directions slightly adapted from The Whole Family Cookbook}

4 c. buttermilk
4 large lemons
1/2 c. sugar

Pour the buttermilk into a large bowl.

Zest the lemons and set the zest aside.  Juice the lemons to measure 1/2 cup.

Add the lemon juice and sugar to the buttermilk; whisk to combine.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes to chill and let the sugar dissolve.

Pour the mixture into the (prepared/frozen) bowl of an ice cream maker.  Process according to the manufacturer's instructions.
 
5-10 minutes before the sherbet is finished, add the zest.

Once finished, pour into an airtight container and place in the freezer for 2 hours to firm up.  At the point the sherbet is scoopable and creamy.
 
(Kiddo & I loved it this way.  Goofy face optional.)

After several hours, or overnight, the sherbet becomes more like a sorbet....icier.  If sorbet is your favorite, you'll love it this way.  Take it out of the freezer and let sit for 15-20 minutes to make it easier to scoop.


Guess what?  Michelle was nice enough to offer a copy of her book to a Bake at 350 reader!  To enter, leave a comment answering the question, giveaway closed...congrats, Erica!!!

  82. There's a difference between warm weather and cold weather treats? :P

    In all seriousness, I think I would say either ice cream, or an apple crisp. Yes, I love warm desserts when it's hot out! I'm a bit strange, I suppose...

  85. My favorite warm weather treat, really, is anything to do with BBQ'ing around the fire pit! Hot dogs, s'mores, potato salad, deviled eggs, a cold glass of wine (a sad exclusion, now that I'm preggo), etc. When I was little, we used to love making our own Popsicles out of sweet kool-aid. :) And would have to eat them outside, of course, because we were messy, messy children.

  110. I love my mother's raw peach pie in the summer. It's easy. Make a batch of pie dough, roll it out and smear it with softened butter. Then sprinkle it liberally with cinnamon sugar, then bake it on a cookie sheet until it's golden brown. While the pie dough is baking, cut up fresh peaches. Sprinkle them with a little sugar and set them aside, tossing occaisionally. Once the pie dough is baked and cooled, break it into pieces and layer it in serving bowls with the fresh peaches. Top with homemade whipped cream with some vanilla in it, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It's light, it's lovely, it's fabulous!

  143. I grew kale in my garden last year and it proved to be the plant that never stopped giving. I have made every version of kale I could think of (except the chips, I don't know why we never got around to that). We all love it, my kids get excited when I make kale pizza! LOL Anyway, great giveaway! I think my favorite beginning of the summer sweet treat is always rhubarb batter cake warm with a scoop of ice cream. Rhubarb season starts our summers off nicely.

  179. Well, being lactose-intolerant, I have limited options! So, a nice slushie usually hits the spot, with brain freezes equivalent to the ones you get from eating ice cream. :)

    I like Kiddo's haircut (I hope when my sons are older, the long shaggy hair trend for boys will be over). Does he mind being on a blog for the whole world to see? LOL.
