The Elements
  • 2½ cups raspberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1¼ cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 bottle champagne or prosecco
  • zest or a few scores from 1 lemon
Procedure
  1. Put raspberries in a food processor or blender (or use immersion blender) and process until smooth.
  2. Pour this puree through a sieve or fine mesh strainer, pressing on the solids to get as much liquid as possible.
  3. Take the bowl with raspberry liquid and add sugar and lemon juice then whisk until incorporated.
  4. Wisk in buttermilk.
  5. Put mixture in your ice cream maker then follow manufacturer instructions. Then transfer to freezer in airtight container for 4-6 hours.
  6. Pour scoops in glasses (coupes, large wine glasses or even martini glasses) and pour a few splashes of champagne over scoops (don’t be stingy now!), then top with lemon zest or scores.
The Verdict
A delicious refreshing summer dessert! Feel free to substitute other delicious summer fruits for the raspberries based on what your local farmer's market has!
