A Festive Twist on a Classic Dip: 3-Ingredient Whipped Goat Cheese with Cranberries and Bacon

A Festive Twist on a Classic Dip: 3-Ingredient Whipped Goat Cheese with Cranberries and Bacon

Getting creative in the kitchen with homemade dishes like this Whipped Goat Cheese Dip is not only good for your waistline, but it's also great for your budget.

By preparing elements of a platter at home, you can save significantly compared to purchasing multiple store-bought dips.

Beyond being budget-friendly, making your own dips adds a personal touch to your gatherings. It shows your friends and visitors the love and time you’ve invested in creating something unique and delicious, making your social events even more special and memorable.

This dip is not only flavourful but also a healthier alternative to many store-bought dips. So added sugar, dodgy emulsifiers, oils or thickeners. Wahoo.

It's rich in fats, making it satiating, and a great option for those who are dairy-sensitive as many people with lactose intolerance can tolerate goat cheese.

Sound good?

Here's a recipe for my delicious 3-Ingredient Whipped Goat Cheese Dip Topped with Cranberries & Bacon:


  • 300g soft goat cheese

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional for extra creaminess)

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • 4-5 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped

  • Zest of one orange

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Whip the Cheese: In a mixing bowl, whip the goat cheese until smooth. For a creamier texture, you can add heavy cream. And... if you are feeling lazy a nutri-bullet can do the trick, although so goats cheese can be a bit too solid for a mixture like this.

  2. Prepare the Toppings: Cook the bacon until crispy and chop into small pieces. Zest an orange and set aside. Tip: I cooked the bacon until crispy in a microwave. Shhhh don't tell anyone! But preparing multiple dishes for a photoshoot meant it was the quickest option, with the least dishes. I won't tell if you don't...

  3. Assemble the Dip: Spread the whipped goat cheese on to a platter board or place into a bowl.

  4. Season: Sprinkle evenly with the dried cranberries, chopped bacon, and orange zest. I found cranberries with much less added sugar than usual. Dried cranberries, as a rule, are very high in sugar, which is why they are used as a condiment only in my cooking!

Will you give it a go?
