How to Make a Buttermilk Substitute Video

Buttermilk makes everything better. Except when you accidentally put it in your coffee.

Buttermilk, the cultured dairy product found on most supermarket shelves in the US, is made from fermented cow’s milk. Buttermilk’s tangy taste and thick consistency isn’t the best for drinking (unless you’re Elvis washing down a fried peanut butter n’ banana sandwich) but it turns baked goods into something sublime and works wonders as a tenderizing meat marinade.

    I’ve done vinegar and also have done lemon. I have found real buttermilk to still be superior.

    It’s almost worth saying that there is no substitute for real buttermilk… but I guess there is, isn’t there? Ha! Thanks, Peggie!

    I used 1 cup almond milk and 1 tbsp vinegar but it didn’t curdle even after an hour. Could it be that my almond milk is too cold? how can I get it to curdle? thanks.

    Hi evie, I don’t know that you’ll get the curdling with almond or soy milk — it’s more about the tang. Hope this helps!
