Oh my gosh!!! I have to share with you my new favorite yogurt! Who has tried siggi’s Icelandic style skyr strained non-fat yogurt? If you have not tried it I recommend it pronto! If you are wondering what “skyr” is, like I was I am hear to explain…it is the traditional yogurt of Iceland. It is made by incubating skim milk with live active cultures. The water naturally found in milk called whey, is strained away to make for a much thicker, creamier, concentrated yogurt. Thus, to make just one cup of skyr, with all that water going out, you need 3 to 4 times the amount of milk required to make one cup of regular yogurt. This process lends itself to 2 to 3 times the protein count than that found regular yogurt. This is yogurt is truly amazing! One of my favorite things about siggi’s is you can read and pronounce every ingredient, there is no mystery to siggi’s!
My favorite way to enjoy yogurt is to add fresh berries with a sprinkle of slivered almonds. Don’t be afraid to add to your favorite yogurt…nuts, berries, dried fruit, granola, etc. they all make delicious toppings. Visit your local market and try siggi’s yogurt; they come in a seven amazing flavors including: (1) blueberry (2) orange and ginger (3) plain (4) pomegranate and passion fruit (5) acai (6) grapefruit (7) vanilla. Some old and some new very original flavors…you won’t be disappointed! Enjoy!
