  • Author: Loving It Vegan
  • Prep Time: 2 mins
  • Total Time: 2 mins
  • Yield: 1 Cup


Easy step by step instructions to DIY vegan buttermilk. Perfect for use in cakes and baking.


  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • Soy Milk


  1. Squeeze a half lemon, which will make roughly 1 Tbsp (15ml) of Lemon Juice (if it makes a little more that’s fine you can use it all)
  2. Pour the lemon juice into a measuring jug.
  3. Add soy milk up to the 1 cup line.
  4. Allow to sit for a minute.
  5. It will thicken and curdle.
  6. Voila!
  7. Your vegan buttermilk is ready to go!


*Not my original recipe, but a staple in vegan baking, adapted for my own purposes.

*You can also use vinegar in place of the lemon juice. So 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar in place of lemon juice will also make buttermilk.
