I was thrown by the gelatin requirements too. I used 2 - 7g envelopes of Knox unflavoured gelatine, which I suspected weren't enough but were all I had. I didn't set up firmly (more a yogurt consistency), but a 3rd envelope would have done it. But even though it didn't set, it was still delicious and I used it like yogurt and served it with berries.

This was so easy to make and a lighter choice than ice cream on a hot day. I might try using a little bit less sugar next time, though, because I like the tang of buttermilk.

Very tasty seved with whipped topping!! I was puzzled by the ingredients calling for 2 oz. packages of gelatin and decided to use 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin. This was consistent with the amount of liquids called for and worked well. I agree this is a very refreshing desert for a summer evening. The flavor reminded me of a lemon merangue pie filling but without all the calories.
