For the most part, you can substitute a non-dairy beverage for milk in a recipe 1:1. Obviously there are some exceptions, but if you’re looking to make a recipe dairy-free, give it a try!

If you’re substituting buttermilk and the recipe uses baking soda as a leavener, you will need to add some acid to your non-dairy beverage. For every cup, add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice or vinegar (apple cider and balsamic vinegars have the best flavor).
