Learn how to make Vegan Buttermilk in 2 minutes. It’s so easy and requires only 2 ingredients. Perfect for pancakes, biscuits, cookies, and all kinds of recipes.


  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk or soy milk
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (you can also use white vinegar or lemon juice)


  1. Combine almond milk and vinegar, and whisk together.
  2. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken and curdle.
  3. Use as a buttermilk substitute in recipes.


This vegan buttermilk recipe ratio is 1:1 (1 cup milk to 1 Tbsp acid). So, if you only need a 1/2 cup for your recipe it would be 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice.

Store any leftover in a jar with a lid or airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
