  • Combine all ingredients in a blender; cover and blend until very smooth and frothy. Pour into 2 tall glasses and serve.



Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: the ratio is 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
