Creamy Whipped Feta with Honey Dip Recipe

Whipped Feta cheese with honey is a yogurt based dip that’s traditionally served in the Southern parts of the Balkans.

It’s usually made with a mixture of white cheese, yogurt, honey, walnuts, some seasonings and a bit of garlic.

This recipe doesn’t stray far from this formula, but it’s made without any garlic.

In my opinion, garlic can overpower the flavor of the other ingredients so I play it safe and skip it.

Another thing that’s worth pointing out is that you can make this recipe with Bulgarian white brine cheese or any other type of white brine cheese with a firmer texture.


  • Feta cheese – This recipe is traditionally prepared with Feta cheese, but you can also use any type of white cheese that has a low sodium content and a firmer texture.
  • Greek Yogurt – You’ll need half a cup of whole fat Greek yogurt. The yogurt should have a fat content of about 10%.
  • Olive oil – A drizzle of olive oil will greatly improve the texture and enrich the overall flavor.
  • Walnuts – You’ll need a quarter cup of chopped walnuts which you’ll use to sprinkle on top.
  • Honey – It’s best to use homemade honey or organic honey which has a runny texture.
  • Seasonings – This dish is seasoned with a mix of dried oregano, dried basil and coarsely ground black pepper.

Whipped Feta cheese with honey will last up to five days when stored in the fridge.

It’s best to keep it in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out and prolong its shelf life.

You can also stash it in your freezer and keep it there for as long as three months if you’ve made a larger batch.
