Enjoy it with fresh figs, blueberries, strawberries, or by itself on a piece of toast. I’ve even added it to cheese boards to eat with crostini.

My favorite way to have this Honey Lavender Whipped Goat cheese is with fresh figs when they’re In season. The fig season runs short during the month of June and then again from August to October.

The sweet and savory balance between the figs, the goat cheese, and the super grainy/seedy toast I use is just perfect.

In fact, that fig toast recipe is where this Honey Lavender Whipped Goat Cheese first debuted. It was so good, I knew it needed its own blog post.

It’s super easy to whip up ahead of time and serve as an appetizer every time of year. Bring it to your next dinner party, no one will know that you only spent about 10 minutes preparing it!

Funny story, as a kid I really hated cheese. The only way you could get me to eat cheese was if It was warm and on a greasy slice of pizza. Now I’ll eat pretty much any and all cheese and it’s hard to stop because I love it so much!

So, needless to say, turning regular goat cheese into whipped goat cheese is my new favorite thing ever.

It’s insanely creamy and so smooth. You can flavor it however you like, but here I used lemon, honey, and lavender.

If you want to change things up to make it more savory, you can use some red pepper flakes and fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. Give it whatever vibe you’re going for. If Mediterranean is more your thing, add some oregano and basil with fresh cracked black pepper. There are no limits in flavors for whipped goat cheese!

How to make whipped goat cheese

This recipe only calls for 5 ingredients! All you need is some goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon zest, honey, and culinary lavender. 

whipped goat cheese in a food processor

  • Place the lavender in the food processor and blend for about 15 seconds. Alternatively, you can mash the lavender with a mortar and pestle.
  • Add the goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon zest, and honey, to the food processor with the lavender. Blend for about 2 minutes until all ingredients are fully combined and the mixture becomes fluffy, scraping the sides down as necessary. It helps to break the goat cheese into smaller pieces for this step.

If you feel like the mixture is too sticky, you can add a little bit of olive oil (about half a tablespoon at a time) until the texture is to your liking.
