Creamy Whipped Feta Cheese Dip
Homemade whipped feta dip is packed full of flavor.
It is creamy, tangy, and zesty all at once, and is so easy to make.
You are going to need a handful of simple ingredients:
- crumbled feta: you can buy feta crumbles, or you can buy a block of feta and crumble it yourself;
- cream cheese: you will want this to be room temperature to make it easier to work with;
- olive oil: look for a good quality extra virgin olive oil as it is one of the key ingredients and bad olive oil can really throw the flavor of the whole dip;
- garlic powder: I find dried garlic to be better than fresh garlic in this recipe as it is more subtle in flavor and won't overwhelm the other ingredients in the dip;
- ground paprika;
- fresh parsley: you could sub in for some dried parsley if preferred;
- black pepper to season;
- preferred dippers: vegetables, pita chips, etc (see below for more tips).
How To Serve Whipped Feta Dip
Simply pop all of the ingredients into a food processor, and blend until well combined and you have a creamy consistency.
If you are in the market for a new food processor I can highly recommend this Cuisinart one:
This creamy dip should be served cold or at room temperature.
Once your dip is ready, pop it into a small bowl and serve.
There are so many ways for you to enjoy it. My favorite ways include:
- with chopped raw fresh vegetables
- with warm pita bread or another fresh crusty bread of choice
- dolloped into a soup (works well with this Potato and Mushroom Soup)
- dolloped on top of some roast veggies, great with a roast cauliflower
- loosen it up with a little bit of olive oil and use as a creamy salad dressing
- with grilled veggies (add a squeeze of lemon)
- with chicken or steak
- as the base of an epic avocado on toast
- as the base of an epic Feta and Mushrooms on Toast
- on toast with some roasted cherry tomatoes, roasted red peppers, or caramelized onions, and topped with red pepper flakes
- on toast with a drizzle of honey
- on toast (I really like toast!) with some sliced strawberries
- with fries/hot chips
- with Lemon and Oregano Chicken Skewers
It is the perfect addition to a veggie platter or a charcuterie board.

Reader Suggestion: one reader made this feta dip recipe and added a squeeze of lemon juice to the mix and put some lemon zest on top to serve.
Tips, Tricks, and Substitutions
If your feta dip is too thick you can thin it out with some of the feta brine (the liquid that feta often comes in), or if you don't have any, add another drizzle of olive oil.
If you don't have a food processor then you can go ahead and use a blender, hand mixer, or an immersion blender, you might just need a little bit more liquid.
I prefer to make my whipped feta dip with cream cheese, as it makes it super luxurious and creamy. However, you can easily sub in some Greek yogurt if you want to lighten things up a bit, or some sour cream if that is what you have.
Sub in some plain Greek yogurt if you want to lighten things up!
If you want to use some fresh herbs instead of garlic powder, these work well. Just be mindful that they may change the flavor considerably depending on how strong your herbs are:
- fresh dill
- chopped basil
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
