How to make home-made “Pribinacek” / Recept na domaci “Pribinacek”

Screen shot 2013-03-16 at 9.38.36 PMI found this wonderful recipe on Facebook so whoever posted it – thank you! Pribinacek is a name of a Czech yogurt which every Czech (and Slovak) soul grew up on; it has an unforgettable WONDERFUL, unique taste and it is absolutely irreplaceable. The only thing that I found remotely close in taste is the Trade Joe’s yogurt, which is called Vanilla & Cream.

Here is the recipe in English (the picture has it already in Slovak language):


  • 500 g of Farmer’s cheese
  • 1/2 liter of  heavy whipping cream
  • 4 vanilla sugars (2 – 4 Tbs of vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 cup  of sugar (if you have not used vanilla sugar)
  • 3 Tbs of sugar (if you have used vanilla sugar)


  1. Put Farmers cheese, heavy whipping cream, and sugar to a big bowl
  2. Use electronic mixer and whip the mixture until it thickens (it takes only a few minutes)
  3. Done!

    You can buy ‘tvaroh’ in a Greek, Russian, German, Arabic, Polish, Mexican and
    In most of American food stores…I live in NJ, in other places the selection may suck

    I use Mascarpone cheese. Readily available and works perfectly.

    You can also easily make the farmer’s cheese. Buy 1.5L (or whatever amount you want) of buttermilk, pour it in a glass pan. Set the oven to its lowest available baking temperature (150F or 65 C) and put in the buttermilk for 2.5 hrs. The curd will separate from the rest, leaving a greenish liquid on bottom and farmers cheese (tvaroh) on top. Strain the cheese through a cheese cloth. I usually let it strain for 30 minutes to an hour. Some strain overnight. Up to you – some like the cheese dry, some prefer it more moist.

    Or what you can buy in the Uk as tvaroh its called quark and it tastes basically the same but the consistence isn’t so thick.
