Do you have a recipe that calls for a dairy product that you are out of? Do you want to control the ingredients that you feed to your family? Would you like to save money on your daily use pantry staples? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions, then you will find what you need in this list of homemade dairy product recipes.

Making Homemade Dairy Products

All of these dairy recipes can be made with whole milk and some can be made with 2%, half and half, or nut milks. They will work the best with raw milk if you have access to a local dairy farmer. These dairy product recipes require only basic kitchen tools (with the except of the yogurt recipe) and most only take a few minutes to whip up.

9 Simple Homemade Dairy Product Recipes

1. Homemade Buttermilk Recipe

Homemade buttermilk is so easy to make! You can mix up a buttermilk substitute in five minutes with a combo of milk + lemon juice or white vinegar OR you can make butter and use the buttermilk that runs off of it.

Making homemade butter only takes a few minutes and, thanks to modern technology, you don’t even need a churner…a blender, a stand mixer, or even a mason jar will do.

3. Homemade Heavy Cream Recipe

Homemade heavy cream can be made with full-fat milk OR low-fat milk. You’ll just need to add a thickener (like cornstarch or arrowroot powder) if you use low-fat milk.

Coffee creamer is my most used homemade dairy product! You can make yummy homemade coffee creamer with milk (dairy, almond, soy, etc), a sweetener (honey, maple syrup, and xylitol are my favs), and a little flavoring.
