Nutritional values

Buttermilk is good for the intestines because it contains a lot of lactic acid bacteria and calcium, making this an ideal dessert for pregnant and breastfeeding women who have an increased need for bone-strenthening calcium.

Italian almond macaroons called Amarettini taste amazing crumbled on top of this soup. You can also garnish with roasted sunflower seeds or almonds instead, which will add additonal protein as well.
