Haven’t tried buttermilk? It’s time you gave this old-fashioned staple a chance.

Buttermilk is packed with health-promoting probiotics including Lactococcus lactic and Leuconostoc cremoris that provide a myriad of benefits ranging from gastrointestinal health to cancer prevention.

Delicious whirled into a smoothie and wonderful for baking, buttermilk lends a rich, hearty flavor with fewer calories than whole milk or cream. It’s also a great base for creating soups or salad dressings. Because of its high acidity, buttermilk makes an effective and flavorful marinade.
