This super creamy and light vegan whipped feta is flavoured with fresh lemon and herbs. Use it as a tasty dip or sandwich spread.
Whipping feta is simple to do and gives it a completely different texture.
Feta is great served crumbled over salads and pasta, but whip it and it turns creamy and unctuous.
Whip it and you have the opportunity to add different flavours and change it up every time.

🧀 Vegan feta cheese
There are lots of brands doing their own vegan feta now, including supermarkets.
Most of it stands up well to the original dairy feta in terms of the salty flavour and creamy texture that crumbles well.
It's gorgeous crumbled over a salad, over freshly cooked pasta and it's also good crumbled over stews.
Unfortunately, it isn't a good option to add to a tart, or pizza, as when cooked at a high temperature it just turns into an oil.
Disappointing, but just one of those things.
Just enjoy it for what it does well.
🥛 How to whip feta cheese
Feta cheese is super simple to whip in a blender or food processor.
To give it that creamy texture, add either vegan milk or vegan yoghurt to thin it slightly.
You can also add herbs and spices.
🥫 Fresh or dried herbs?
You may wonder if fresh herbs or dried herbs are better for vegan whipped feta.
You can actually use fresh or dried herbs when flavouring dairy-free whipped feta cheese.
In the summer I would have some fresh parsley and dill growing in pots, so I just snip some when I need it, but in the winter, I tend to use dried herbs more.
Depending on the recipe of course.
This is one of those recipes where dried herbs will work fine.
🍋 How lemony to go
Just how lemony do you want your whipped feta?
It's not essential to add lemon juice when making whipped feta, but it does give it a wonderful flavour.
The saltiness of the feta, the creamy texture then a zing of lemon.
If you don't like lemon, use some plant-based milk instead, but if you do like lemon flavour added to dips, them add some freshly squeezed lemon juice.
For an extra zing, add some lemon zest too.
🥛 Vegan Greek yoghurt
I used vegan Greek yoghurt in this feta dip.
Yoghurt gives another layer of tang to this creamy dip.
It can be replaced with plant-based milk, but just don't add as much milk as you would yoghurt, as you want the whipped feta to be airy and light and not wet.
🌶 Flavour variations for vegan whipped feta
Here are a few flavours you can add to whipped feta.
Just don't add too many at once. Keep it simple for the best flavour.
- Herbs - try parsley, dill, chives or basil (fresh or dried)

⏲️ How long will vegan whipped feta keep?
Whipped feta can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
It may separate slightly as it sits, you may need to give it a bit of a whip with a fork or whisk.
I haven't tried freezing this one, as I make it fresh to use, so I won't recommend that.
