Easy Homemade Sour Cream

Prep Time 2 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream 360g
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of whole milk 80g
  • 2 tablespoons of Greek or full-fat plain yogurt


  • In a large mason jar or bowl, combine all the ingredients and whisk until smooth, ensuring there are no lumps.
  • Cover the jar or bowl with cheesecloth or a paper towel, and secure it with a rubber band or tape. It’s important to allow air to circulate, so avoid using a lid.
  • Leave the container at room temperature for 24 hours to allow it to ferment and transform into sour cream.
  • The next day, remove the paper towel or cheesecloth and give the sour cream a good stir. It should be thick and ready to use!
  • Once refrigerated, the sour cream will thicken further, resembling store-bought sour cream.
  • Store the sour cream in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Feel free to double or triple the recipe based on your sour cream needs.
  • Enjoy your homemade sour cream in all your favorite recipes!
