Creamy Whipped Feta – a delicious dip that you can make super fast!
With just a few ingredients this simple, tasty feta dip is quickly made.
When I think of feta I think of a very tasty, crumbly cheese, delicious to eat and essential to a Greek salad. However, its essential crumbly characteristic means it’s almost impossible to use as a topping for crostini or bruschetta as it just won’t stay put. Enter whipped feta. Whipped feta is a revelation; it is a quick and easy spread that’s ideal for appetisers or snacks.
Creamy Whipped Feta is delicious as a dip served with crudites and toasted pita bread. Or spread it on a toasted baguette to make crostini. I like to top the crostini with roasted cherry tomatoes or slices of fresh apple drizzled with honey. Use it instead of butter on a sandwich. The options are endless.
Whizzing the ingredients in a small food processor transforms the crumbly feta into a deliciously creamy, tangy dip with an airy, light texture.
I have topped the dip with toasted sesame seeds, chilli flakes, lemon zest and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. I have listed possible alternatives below.
A friend of mine recently tried the recipe topped with chilli oil – I love this idea, and look forward to trying it soon myself!

A tasty dip made from just a handful of ingredients.
- 180 g feta at room temperature
- 80 g cream cheese at room temperature
- 3 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp sesame seeds toasted
- 1/4 tsp chilli flakes
- 1/4 tsp lemon zest
- 2 tsp olive oil extra virgin
Put feta, cream cheese, olive oil and lemon zest into a food processor. Blend together until ingredients are well mixed, smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a serving dish.
Heat a small frying pan over medium heat, add the sesame seeds and toast to a light golden brown, stirring occasionally.
Top the whipped feta with sesame seeds, chilli flakes, lemon zest and drizzle with the olive oil. Refrigerate if not using immediately.z
- I generally use Danish feta as it is very smooth and creamy. If you’re using a drier feta it may be necessary to use more cream cheese or olive oil to thin it to blend.
- Be sure to bring the whipped feta to room temperature for serving.
ALTERNATIVE TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:
a drizzle of basil pesto
chopped parsley/chives and lemon zest
cracked black pepper and 1 tbsp honey
olive oil and sumac
