Yogurt – Icelandic Style

Has anyone else tried siggi’s? I noticed it for the first time the other day and I was curious. I decided to go with the Pomegranate Passion Fruit.  My jury is still out on this one… I like that it’s sweetened with agave and hence not very sweet. There is a fruity tartness that seems to be more passion fruit than pomegranate. It is thick. Very, very thick. As with Greek yogurt, I’m shocked how a nonfat yogurt can be so thick. However, this Icelandic style is unfortunately lacking in the consistency department. A fork would be an option. Well maybe that’s extreme, but it is really thick.  A plus – this skyr (aka the traditional yogurt of Iceland) has 2-3 times the protein of standard yogurt. Pretty cool, but I would definitely take a little less protein and a little more creaminess.

Will Skyr follow the Greek variety and be the next yogurt craze? I don’t think so, but it’s quite interesting and worth a try!

  1. I never buy non-fat products because they have to have another ingredient for thickening. Love your page, very professional. I want the recipe for that quiche, it looks great.

  2. Hmm…. these yogurts look very interesting. I’ll have to keep an eye out for them in the specialty section of my grocery store. Looks like they could be yummy though!
