Mix nonfat yogurt with nonfat milk till it's the consistency of buttermilk. It works. In recipes with baking powder, you need the acidity of the buttermilk to make the baking powder work -- so then add a small amount of lemon juice.

Soy milk or unsweetened applesauce can replace the liquid in any muffin recipe

hmm, well, lowfat buttermilk has about 2 gr. of fat in a cup; that's fewer calories and less fat than 2% (reduced fat) milk. (li think lowfat buttermilk is typically available in supermarkets).
if you want less fat than that, i was going to suggest adding about a tsp. of lemon juice or vinegar to skim milk, but I think non-fat yogurt might be a better option.
since you mentioned lower-fat, another possibility would be to replace some or all of the butter / oil / fat ingredient with applesauce.
