Dairy Free Buttermilk Replacement {Coconut Buttermilk} from The Coconut Mama

Need a healthy dairy free alternative to buttermilk? Coconut milk is the healthiest dairy free milk substitute you can use. It is rich in healthy saturated fats and boosts the immune system.

You can use homemade or canned coconut milk to make this  dairy free “buttermilk”. The acid from the vinegar or lemon juice reacts the same way cultured buttermilk acts in baked goods.
