Whipped Feta Dip

Lusciously creamy, rich, and tangy, this whipped feta dip is always a hit at gatherings. You only need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make it!

Whipped feta dip

I love serving this creamy whipped feta dip at parties and gatherings because it always surprises people. It looks like any other creamy white dip, maybe a ranch-y sort of thing made with cream cheese or sour cream. But it tastes like something else entirely. Lemon gives it zing, garlic adds bite, and the feta fills it with a delicious salty tang. Set it out with pita and veggies, and I promise, it’ll disappear in minutes.

Another reason I love this whipped feta dip recipe? It’s SO easy to make. You just need 5 ingredients, 5 minutes, and a food processor. Trust me, you want it in your back pocket!

Whipped Feta Dip Ingredients

BIG TIP for this recipe: Better feta yields a better feta dip. Instead of buying crumbled feta, which often contains extra ingredients to prevent caking, look for a block of feta cheese. It’ll give the dip a creamier texture and a richer, brinier flavor. It makes such a difference!

Here’s what else you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Greek yogurt – Whole milk, please! It helps the feta whip into a rich and creamy dip.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil – It smooths the dip and adds fruity depth of flavor.
  • Fresh lemon juice – For brightness.
  • And garlic – For a savory bite.

How to Serve Whipped Feta Dip

I love to serve this whipped feta as part of a mezze platter or charcuterie board with pita bread, pita chips, and/or fresh veggies for dipping. I always dress it up with a few garnishes before setting it out. Here are some of my favorite combinations:

  • A drizzle of olive oil, pinches of Aleppo pepper, and chopped parsley. I love how the yellow, red, and green pop against the white dip.
  • Olive oil and dukkah or za’atar. These spice blends add earthy, aromatic notes to the dip.
  • A swirl of honey, freshly cracked black pepper, and mint. A fun sweet and salty combo!

If you have leftover whipped feta dip, you have plenty of options for using it up.

    tasted great, but my food processor just couldn’t aerate it well, so it was less whipped than I’d like. finished with a drizzle of balsamic and honey reduced to a thick syrup, adds a nice sweet/ sour counterpoint to the salty feta. Would make again, just need to figure out how to get it truly whipped.

      Hi Tom, you could add a little more yogurt or a tiny bit of water to get the blade moving.

    It’s tasty, but too liquid and too tangy. Next time I’d use less lemon juice, yogurt and more cheese to thicken it up.
    I’m thinking of using it as a pasta sauce with added pesto.

    I doubled this recipe for a holiday gathering with friends. I added more yogurt to make it the consistency I wanted (it was thicker initially). It was a big hit! Super quick and easy to make for entertaining! Keeping this in my back pocket for last minute entertaining. Thanks for sharing this!

    Amazing taste, very runny.. if anyone reads comments first(I didn’t!)- add the yogurt to the consistency you prefer a little at a time!
    Would make again.

    I used my own homemade Greek yogurt. I followed the recipe. It is super liquidity. Any thoughts ?

    • Phoebe Moore (L&L Recipe Developer)

      Hi Chad, what is the consistency of the homemade yogurt like? To thicken up the dip, I recommend adding more feta.

    What are the nutritional values?

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Wendy, we don’t calculate nutrition facts but you can plug the ingredients into a site like my fitness pal.

    My food processor is broken. Could this be made with a blender or immersion blender?

    • Phoebe Moore (L&L Recipe Developer)

      Hi Lauren, An immersion blender might work. I think this mixture is a bit too thick for most regular blenders.

  11. Shae-Lynn

    Is this recipe better with greek yogurt or cream cheese? Ive seen recipes that either use one or the other and not sure which is best!

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      I like Greek yogurt in this recipe, it’s fresh and I think cream cheese would be too rich along with the feta.

  12. Deborah

    This looks delicious. I plan on making as part of your mezze platter. Can you make the feta dip ahead?

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Yes! I store it in the fridge up to about 5 days. If it separates at all, just give it a stir.

    just wondering about the carbs, calories!! I know I’m not gonna eat the entire bowl…maybe!! But just wondering…I guess I could read the packages!! I’m diabetic & I try to watch all that I eat…including twinkies~~~~ kidding..

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Linda, I’m not sure about the calories, but there aren’t any carbs in these ingredients (except in the pita, of course).

    great idea for a dip, especially since my idea of feta conjures up a solid square shape! Little hard to dip into that, so thank you

    Super easy and delicious! I’ve had it with eggs, crackers, veggies as well as roasted cauliflower. Also by the spoon. Thanks for this!
