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.

The drink, below, can be altered with the addition or replacement of various fruits such as red, yellow, or black raspberries, red or black currants, or strawberries.
