This buttermilk with blackberries, aka Buttermilch mit Brombeeren, is so refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Refreshing, delicious, and healthy - what a great combination!

Originally, buttermilk was the liquid remaining after the butter was churned.

Whether your buttermilk was made in the traditional, old-fashioned way or is a cultured buttermilk, both are lower in fat than that of regular milk.

Buttermilk is popular in hot countries because it lasts longer than fresh milk. However, it is also enjoyed in Germany and used, not only for drinking, but also in baking and cooking.

There are many recipes using buttermilk that it is almost considered a grocery staple.

It is so easy to enjoy this popular drink in Germany. Just go to the store and buy the finished mixed drinks. Fruit mixed with buttermilk. How easy it is.

Elsewhere we can just buy plain buttermilk. However, it is so easy to create our own delicious, refreshing buttermilk recipes. All you need is an immersion stick or a blender.

I've had my Ninja blender for a couple of years and I'm so happy with it.

Originally I got it to make smoothies and nice cream (using frozen fruit).

I also love to use it when anything needs to be mixed quickly, when something needs to be ground, etc., etc.

I'm thinking my easy potato pancakes, my easy oven apple pancake ... and so much more.
