Somebody else actually asked the same question about 4 months ago, so here's my same answer:
Buttermilk Equivalents and Measures
• 1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup yogurt
• 1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup milk PLUS 1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice (let stand for 10 minutes before using in recipe)
• 1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup milk PLUS 1-3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
• 1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup water PLUS 4 Tbsp powdered buttermilk
(reconstitute before using or add dry to dry ingredients and wet to wet ingredients before mixing
• 1 cup buttermilk = 1/4 cup milk PLUS 3/4 cup yogurt
So if u have no vinegar or lemon juice, use yogurt ( hopefully u have the plain kind, I don't think flavored would work...)

Milk with either vinegar or lemon juice added. Buttermilk is acidic and that is important in some recipes.

Regular milk will be fine,
But you could make buttermilk if you add a big Tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of regular milk, stir and let set for 5 minutes. It will curdle as it sets. Do it all the time......

Milk then add a little vinegar and you will have buttermilk

Yogurt. I use milk with lemon juice instead of using vinegar as others have suggested.

Either milk with a couple of drops of vinegar, or just use some natural yoghurt mixed with milk to thin it.

Michael B is correct. Use the same amount of milk with a few drops of vinegar to it.
