Creamy Kefir-Quark Tzatziki Recipe

 Tzatziki is one of my favourite dips. It's light and refreshing; perfect for dipping vegetable sticks and pitta breads into. I also think it's lovely on wraps and burgers - especially if you're after something a little different from the more traditional table sauces.

The other day, Bio-tiful Dairy got in touch to see if I'd like to try their Kefir-Quark* product and use it to make a creamy Tzatziki. Kefir-Quark wasn't a product I'd actually heard of before and that's probably because Bio-tiful Dairy is the first brand in the world to make it! For those who may not have come across it before either, Kefir is a 2000 year old bio-live drink and Quark is a high-protein fresh cheese. The product itself boasts numerous health benefits: it's great for the gut, it's high in calcium and it's packed full of essential minerals and vitamins, including B2 and B12.
I had a little taste before I made the Tzatziki and it was really very pleasant. It reminded me a lot of Greek Yoghurt and I imagine it'd be lovely with fruit and seeds as a breakfast or lunch, if that's something you're into!

But if like me, you want to turn it into a tasty Tzatziki, then check out the simple recipe below...

Kefir-Quark Tzatziki Ingredients (makes enough for 6):

300g Bio-tiful Kefir-Quark
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic cloved (minced)
1 large cucumber (grated)
1 tbsp fresh mint (chopped)
Seasoning to taste

*I actually halved this recipe so I could use the 150g Bio-tiful Kefir-Quark pot sent to me.*

Kefir-Quark Tzatziki Recipe Method:


  1. Grate the cucumber and place into a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for 30 mins
  2. Drain and wipe the cucumber with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture
  3. Blend together the grated cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, mint and black pepper
  4. Stir in your Kefir-Quark

Mediterranean-inspired meal with Kefir-Quark Tzatziki

I was really impressed with the taste of the Kefir-Quark Tzatiki; it was fresh, light and very authentic! We decided to have a Mediterranean-inspired meal so that we could make the most of it and ended up with a rather tasty selection of food, as you can see below...
The Creamy Kefir-Quark Tzatziki was the perfect accompaniment to our Med-inspired meal and it's something I'll definitely make again in the future.

If you fancy having a go at making it yourself or simply want to give Bio-tiful Dairy's Kefir-Quark a try, then it is available to buy in Waitrose, Whole Foods and online at Ocado. Bio-tiful Dairy products are also stocked in many other supermarkets all over the country. For more information, head to the Bio-tiful Dairy website.

Is Kefir-Quark something you'd try?
