  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Combine the plant-based milk with the lemon juice and gently stir. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the milk to thicken.
  • Store vegan buttermilk in a lidded jar (like a mason jar) and keep refrigerated. It will keep up to 5 days.


If you prefer something besides lemon juice, you can substitute apple cider vinegar, or even white vinegar.
