This was wonderful. I used freshly made buttermilk, super sweet fresh strawberries, a touch of lime juice, 1 tsp of sugar, and 3 ice cubes. Fantastic!!

This is one interesting but good shake. I used frozen strawberries as my fruit, which made the shake nice and really thick. I really like drinking buttermilk as buttermilk which is why I was enticed to try this recipe. The saltiness of the buttermilk does come through, making the sugar or sweetener a must IMO. I liked the flavour change by using buttermilk instead of yogurt or plain milk. Thanks!

Made for PAC, Spring 07 ~ Now I realize that many might turn up their noises at the thought of drinking a buttermilk-based shake, but this one is really outstanding! I think it's the slight 'tang' that does it for me! This first time I used frozen peaches & they were obviously great, but I'm impatient, now, for the fresh fruits of spring & summer! Thanks much for this recipe!
