Cyndy from EAT SMARTER's picture
You can use regular, almond or oat milk. Buttermilk is thicker than all of these and has an acidic taste, so you may need to add an extra squeeze of lemon. The consistency will be a little less thick.
 
Can I replace buttermilk with regular milk or almond milk or possibly oat milk?
