Oh my word is this a yummy frozen treat. It’s reminiscent of an orange creamsicle – freshly-squeezed orange juice meets creamy buttermilk and vanilla bean. This sorbet has the remarkable ability to remind me of childhood while simultaneously making me feel all grown up and sophisticated.

I first bookmarked this recipe because I was intrigued by the idea of using buttermilk in a sorbet. Let me just tell you, it’s amazing. It brings a nice creaminess without being heavy and a wonderful tanginess. It’s a simply delightful and healthy (versus heavy cream) addition and I’m already hatching up more buttermilk sorbet flavors as I type this.

In france we call the buttermilk: lait ribot. In Brittany near Saint-Malo, one of our famous chef olivier roellinger makes a fabulous sorbet with this milk. A love it very much with fruits and madeleines
