Delicious. I made this with 500g frozen blueberries and just let them thaw before using.

Wonderful! I've never made ice cream with buttermilk but it gives it this amazing tangy-ness - that plus the lemon and berries makes this very fresh. The only change is that I think 1 cup is too much sugar - makes it a little too heavy. I was happy with ~2/3 cup or a little less. Don't leave out the vanilla or the lemon.
