Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Whipped Feta with Plums. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Use a plain feta cheese block such as this one from Athenos for best results. Avoid using feta crumbles which will result in a dry dip.

Greek yogurt helps give this recipe a tangy flavor and creamy texture. You can use any type of plain yogurt such as dairy-free.

Fresh garlic is going to give this dip a ton of flavor. Although I prefer using fresh garlic, you can also use minced garlic from a jar.

Using a high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil is going to add a lovely flavor to this recipe. You can also use regular olive oil.

Raw honey has a ton of added benefits and nutrients, I love using the this one from Bee Keepers Naturals, but feel free to use your favorite honey in replace. However, be sure to check the ingredient list and use one where the only ingredient is honey.

Fresh lemon juice adds a tangy flavor to this dip.

I used mini plums that I found at Trader Joes and sauteed them on the stove top with a big of coconut sugar. Alternatively, you can use cane or brown sugar.

Serve this dip with fresh basil.

Serve this dip with pita bread or pita chips. I made my own pita chips by placing them in the air fryer at 350F for 8-10 minutes, shaking halfway through.

How To Make

ONE: Start by sautéing the plums first. In a small sauté pan, add in the plums that are sliced in half with the pit removed, along with coconut sugar and lemon juice. Cook on med/low heat stirring consistently until the plums have caramelized, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

TWO: While the plums are cooling, add all the ingredients to make the whipped feta to a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. About 30-60 seconds.

THREE: Pour feta into a dish and top with the plums. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and the fresh basil and enjoy with toasted pita bread or veggies.

Tips And Tricks

Make the plums first so they have time to cool off before adding to the dip.

Use a food processor for best results. A blender will also work, but just make sure not to over blend or you’ll be left with a watery dip instead of thick and creamy.

How To Serve And Store

Serve this whipped feta once the ingredients are full combined and with the toppings of sautéd plums, basil and balsamic glaze. Enjoy with toasted pita bread or fresh veggies.

Whipped feta can also be used on crostini, in salads or wraps. It’s really versatile!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Let sit out at room temperature to soften before enjoying. Once placed in the fridge, the feta texture will thicken and be more like a cream cheese texture.

I recommend re-blending ingredients to get that whipped texture again, so best to store toppings separate from dip.

Taste And Texture

This whipped feta is tangy and filled with feta flavors, but has a subtle sweet and sour taste from the plums.

The texture is light, airy and fluffy.
