Dairy-free Buttermilk Substitution

If you don't keep buttermilk on hand or don't use it because of milk allergies, here is a simple substitution:

1 c soymilk
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Mix and let stand a few minutes before using.

What about using Lactose free milk instead of soymilk?

Becky @ BoysRuleMyLife said...


Not really sure if that would work or not. We've never used lactose free milk. My suggestion is to just give it a try and see what you get. Use a small amount so that you don't waste a lot if it doesn't work out.

Please come back and let us know what you find out! :)

Thanks so much!

We don't eat soy so I used rice milk and it worked out fine. Thank you for the recipe!

do you use sweetened or unsweetened?

Anonymous ~ I used the unsweetened. I suppose it really depends on what you are using it for. If it is a dessert or something like pancakes, I don't see what sweetened "milk" would hurt. :) Good luck!
