Home Made Buttermilk and Heavy Cream

Today is leftover day, so I thought I would share a couple of substitute recipes.  Have you ever wanted to make a certain dish only to find that you don’t have an ingredient?  Or, you want to make a certain recipe but don’t want to spend the extra money on a certain ingredient?  I am very frugal since we are a family of 6 with a single income that seems to shrink yearly.  I will share the two recipes I use most often.  They are buttermilk and heavy cream recipes.  I was quite amazed at how easy they are and only 2 ingredients each!  They work too!   Please check out my Pinterest page for more recipes!  It’s under Shelly Boynton.

Heavy Cream:


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter


1. Melt the butter.

2. Pour it into the milk, and stir.

3. Use in place of one cup of heavy cream.

Note: This substitute while not whip.

Tip: If you use low-fat milk, add a tablespoon of flour to the mixture to thicken.


  • – 1 cup of milk
  • – 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar
  1. Mix the two together – chill for 5 minutes.
  2. Use as buttermilk

Have a great day!
