ingredients and Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Whipped Feta. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of this page 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.
Chop up some pistachios to throw on top for an added crunch. You can sub any type of nut here, however I would suggest using a toasted almond, walnut or pecan.
Bee pollen is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory superfood. Sprinkle some on top, they are tasteless but look gorgeous on this dish.
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: In a food processor, add in the feta, greek yogurt, garlic, evoo, honey and lemon juice. Blend for 3-5 minutes or until mixture is well incorporated, creamy and fluffy. You may need to stop to scrape down the sides a few times.
TWO: Add the dip to a dish and top with toppings. Drizzle on the honey, add on the chopped pistachios and bee pollen and then give a light drizzle of EVOO. Serve immediately with pita chips.
