Buttermilk Ice Cream

Buttermilk Ice Cream

Summer is a time for vacation.  A time to spend with the family and to make some well deserving memories that will last a life time.  With the economy as it is, stay-cations are becoming more of a reality.  Not to worry though, there are many things you can do at home to inspire memories that might just be a bit more fulfilling than that lost trip to Disneyland.

Using July (National Ice Cream Month) as our inspiration. let’s use our imagination and see what we can conger up.

Here’s a great recipe I found in the Arizona State Cowbelle’s Recipe Book, issue 1983.

So grab that antique crank style ice cream maker and let’s make some memories!
This one you can actually make in the freezer, but it’s great to get the kids involved.  Makes the taste oh so much better when you have to work at it. 🙂


  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 20 ounces Crushed Pineapple
  • 2 cups Buttermilk

Beat egg whites.  Fold in sugar.  Add pineapple, then fold in buttermilk.
Put in pan and place in freezer.  Stir once or twice to avoid crystallizing.

Helpful hint

See told ya it’d be simple.  I give ya’ permission to play with your food too! 

Change it up, add a different fruit, or add extra fruit to the one already there.  You just can’t go wrong with this recipe.  And the kids will really enjoy making it too.  But, I can’t promise that they won’t check the freezer a hundred times to see if it’s ready yet. 😛
