Buttermilk Creme, a delicious sauce for fruit.
Buttermilk Creme, a dessert sauce for berries and poached fruit.

It is going to be berry season very soon.

Not just strawberries, all berries. This sauce is delicious. Perfect to pour over perfectly ripe, sweet berries.

Or poached fruit, like rhubarb and plums.

Buttermilk Creme
by the seat of my pants!
see update below: a cooks wisdom

4 oz cream cheese
2 t vanilla
1/4 - 1/3 c sugar - see note below suggesting how much sugar to use
1/2 c fresh buttermilk

Beat cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar until fluffy.

Mix in the buttermilk one or two tablespoons at a time, scraping sides of the bowl to the center.

Continue to mix, until smooth.

Drizzle over berries, poached rhubarb or shortcake desserts.

This makes approximately 1 1/4 cups sauce.

Update:  decrease sugar to 1/4 cup, if using the sauce over berries or other fruits that have been sweetened with sugar.

  1. That looks like it might get the grandchildren to eat more berries. Everything they eat needs "whipped cream" they say...lol...This looks a bit healthier.

  2. What a beautiful sauce for fruit of any kind....particularly berries!

  3. Melynda,

    This sauce looks fantastic! I love using buttermilk in recipes. I've always wanted to make vanilla extract, and you may just be my inspiration. I can't wait for fresh berries!

  4. That sounds so good, I could eat it without the berries. How bout I just dip a cookie in the sauce.

  5. I could eat just the creme, lol! It looks wonderful and I bet it would taste good on lots of things.

  6. the sauce looks absolutely fantastic !
