Fresh Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet

I have a confession to make... I've been keeping something from you all summer long. I don't know why, but I've done it.

Berries and buttermilk make the perfect summertime combination in this Fresh Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet!

I've been keeping this creamy and delicious Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet under wraps since the beginning of the summer. The first time I made it I didn't take pictures because, well, you never know how these things are going to turn out. The second time I made it, I took pictures. Then life got in the way and I never got said pictures edited or put into a post. We just made it again a couple of weeks ago and I swore (to myself) I would share it with you.  Yet, here we are... I still haven't shared it. So, today, as you may already be getting into your back-to-school groove, I'm expounding on the virtues of this delectable, tart and creamy Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet. It just might be the perfect "mom treat" while you wait for your sweeties to come bounding through the door announcing a big project that is due tomorrow. ;-)

By the way, did you know that it is pronounced sher-bet... not sherbert. There is only one "r". I have been saying it wrong for all these years... not spelling it wrong, as I have not had occasion to spell it until today. (Thank goodness. How embarrassing would that be?)
