Herb And Garlic Cheese

How to make Boursin-flavoured cheese out of yogurt cheese or labneh

5 from 1 review

It’s easy and affordable to make this herb and garlic cheese.  Similar to Boursin, it is deliciously perfect for parties, sandwiches, and snacks!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of soft cream cheese (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 3 Tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley


  1. Let the butter and cheese warm up to room temperature before mixing.
  2. Start by mixing the Parmesan cheese, dried herbs, and garlic powder into the butter. Then add in the soft cheese and continue mixing until everything is well blended.
  3. Finely chop the parsley and chives, then stir them into the cheese as well.
  4. Allow the cheese spread to rest for at least 2 hours before serving to fully blend the flavors.
  5. Store herb and garlic cheese in the refrigerator, and bring it up to room temperature before serving. Enjoy within 1 week of mixing.


  • Most Boursin copycat recipes use store-bought blocks of cream cheese. This recipe is designed for homemade soft cheeses or use a tub of spreading cream cheese rather than a hard block. See the section above for 3 homemade cheese options.
  • There are a lot of herbs in the recipe. If you’re missing one or two, feel free to skip them.
  • Most garlic powder contains sulfites to maintain the color. To avoid unnecessary sulfites, I recommend using Simply Organic Garlic Powder which is sulfite-free. (I emailed them to double-check!)
