How to Transform Coconut Yogurt Into a Creamy Vegan Tzatziki


I used to love tzatziki, which is a Greek yogurt dip (also called cacik in Turkish). But where I am in Australia there have been no really good vegan versions brought out, so I decided to make my own.

Surprisingly, it was super simple and is a very versatile dip or sauce. You can have it served simple and healthy (like I have) with some veggie sticks. Or you could add it a falafel burger, a wrap or a kebab or serve with some crackers at your next BBQ or party with some friends!

This recipe uses coconut but you could work with any plain/unsweetened yogurt that you have on hand (or make).


easy Vegan Tzatziki with crudités


  • 150 grams natural coconut yoghurt (make sure it is natural, a flavoured version will give it a funky taste)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated cucumber
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 6 carrot sticks (should roughly be one carrot)
  • 6 cucumber sticks (should roughly be 1/2 a cucumber)
  • pinch of cracked black pepper
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Put yoghurt into a bowl and mash it up.
  2. Add in the lemon juice, dill, grated cucumber, garlic, pepper and salt. Stir very well.
  3. Check the taste, add in a bit more lemon and/or dill if you need some more flavour.
  4. Place into a serving bowl or into a container if you are prepping it.
  5. Chop up your veggie sticks.
  6. Serve, or save!
