Place the goat cheese in the bowl of a food processor and add 2 tablespoons of the honey, the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, ½ teaspoon of the lemon zest, ⅛ teaspoon of the black pepper, and the salt. Pulse until creamy and well blended. Transfer to a small, shallow serving bowl and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
Sprinkle the spread with the remaining ½ teaspoon of lemon zest and ⅛ teaspoon of black pepper. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of honey and sprinkle with the fresh herb.
Serve with crackers or crostini as a nibble with drinks or a cup of tea.
