Healthy Substitute for Buttermilk

How many times do you have a recipe saying, “Use 1/4 cup buttermilk” and you have to buy a large container? This is a great substitute that I guarantee you will not know the difference. I used this for chicken, marinades, etc. It’s healthier, lower in fat, and more economical!

Website for original Recipe :


  • 1cup milk (I use lowfat or skim)
  • 1tablespoon lemon juice or 1 tablespoon vinegar


  1. Combine ingredients and let stand 5 minutes.
  2. After 5 minutes, mix together well and use as buttermilk in any recipe!
