Almond 'Buttermilk'

*Vegan
*Diary-free
*Use for any recipe that calls for buttermilk


I've been looking for an alternate for buttermilk for years and I could never find it.  Regular milk has give me stomach issues as I have gotten older.

 


Also purchasing a half gallon or quart of buttermilk can be pricey at times and it doesn't last that long.  Make buttermilk as you need it.
 
Strawberry Meyer Lemon Cake

Great for any recipe that calls for buttermilk.  I have used Almond 'Buttermilk' to make sweet things like pancakes and cakes.  As well as savory items like biscuits and quick breads.


Vanilla Bean Loaf Cake




You won't miss the diary buttermilk once you start making this.
  
Pancakes




What you need:
Almondmilk- it can be sweetened or unsweetened depending on what you using it for.  Use sweetened for sweeter items like cakes and pancakes and unsweetened for savory items like breads or biscuits. Or you can use unsweetened completely. 
Vinegar- any type will work I just like to use Apple Cider Vinegar.

Recipe
Almondmilk
1 tablespoon of Apple Cinder Vinegar

Whisk together almondmilk and vinegar.



Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Depending on the amount of milk it might take longer.


Better to make as needed and not make a big batch.

  1. Oh wow these pancakes look amazing and I love that you can make a big batch to use. With six of us in our house we definitely go through a fair amount of batter!

  2. Man. Those breads and cakes look so good. I love almonds and have been very disappointed that our almond milks contain so much garbage in them. I will have to check out this brand and try to make almond buttermilk,

    1. I wish the almondmilks didn't have so much stuff but in my opinion its better than drinking regular milk. I'm going to try to make my own so it won't have so many other ingredients.

  3. OOh the vanilla butter cake looks rather tasty. I too have issues with too much dairy so almond buttermilk sounds ideal when I need to take a break from dairy x

    1. To me it makes whatever you are baking or cooking makes it less heavy or give an uncomfortably stuffed feeling when you eat more than one serving.

    1. Depending on the recipe no it shouldn't take longer than an hour. Just to make the almond buttermilk it only takes like a minute to make and ten to fifteen minutes to let it sit.
