If you buy buttermilk only when you're planning a pancake breakfast, you could be missing out on a bevy of health perks. Besides being a good source of calcium and B vitamins, it's also chock-full of probiotics, "good" bacteria that may help prevent everything from tooth decay to yeast infections. Use the low fat version in cakes, salad dressings, and pureed-vegetable soups to add a creamy texture and tangy taste for just 98 calories and 2 grams of fat per cup.
My mom always makes her chocolate loaf cake with part buttermilk, and it is SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
