Whipped Goat Cheese

Here’s a quick and creamy dip or spread that will have everyone talking: Whipped Goat Cheese! This party appetizer takes just 5 minutes to make and tastes like a dream! If you love the earthy, savory creaminess of goat cheese, you’ll park yourself right next to the bowl. Flavored with fresh herbs and garlic, this smooth spread is ideal for dipping crackers or crostini. Add it to a veggie tray or cheese board for party snack perfection. We made this for my parents and they couldn’t stop dipping into it with pretzels.

Ingredients in whipped goat cheese

Whipped goat cheese is just that: fresh goat cheese that’s whipped in a food processor until fully smooth. You’ll need a bit of other dairy to get the goat cheese to a creamy consistency, so here we’ve used Greek yogurt to add extra creaminess and a little more tang. Simple whipped goat cheese tastes a little plain, but add a bit of fresh herbs and garlic and you’re in business. Here’s what you’ll need for this simple appetizer:

  • Fresh goat cheese (aka chevre; sold in a log)
  • Greek yogurt
  • Fresh chives
  • Fresh basil
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried dill

All you have to do? Whiz up the ingredients in a food processor! It comes together quick and simple. Then add it to a cheese platter or veggie tray with all the implements for dipping. Speaking of…

What to use for dipping

The sky’s the limit when it comes to dippers for whipped goat cheese! Our favorite is any neutral flavored cracker or toast, which really allows the flavor of the goat cheese to shine. Or use veggie sticks! Here are a few ideas:

Variation: serve whipped goat cheese sweet!

You can also make whipped goat cheese as a sweet spread, serving it with honey, jam or a fruit sauce on crostini or toasts. Here’s what to do:

  • Omit the herbs and seasonings. Blend up the goat cheese and Greek yogurt without the herbs and seasonings: add a pinch or two of salt to round out the flavor.
  • Spread onto crostini or in a shallow bowl.
  • Top with honey, jam, or blueberry sauce. This blueberry sauce recipe is especially tasty served with goat cheese! You can use any flavor of jam or marmalade (see this Goat Cheese Appetizer for ideas).
