Siggi’s Icelandic-Style Yogurt

Last Autumn, Chris and I were able to take a trip of a lifetime to Iceland. We had an amazing time. One of the ways we like to take in a culture while traveling is to take in the local cuisine. Though we weren’t brave enough to try the rancid shark delicacy, we did enjoy Skyr.

Me on top of a glacier in Iceland. We snowmobiled there.

Skyr is a thicker and tarter yogurt than traditional American yogurt from Iceland. When we were there, we were able to enjoy Skyr both on its own and used in other dishes.

Skyr Creme Brule

I haven’t had the chance to have Skyr since our trip. Yesterday in Whole Foods, Siggi’s Iceland-Style Skyr was on sale. I grabbed two and brought them back with me to NYC. This morning, I enjoyed one mixed with pumpkin granola.

Lunch was simple today: a Morningstar Chik Patty on an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with spinach served with a side of Half Naked popcorn. Later, I beat the midday hunger with a banana.

Right now, I am making some bulked up mac n cheese. If it comes out good, I will share the recipe tomorrow. Also, I am currently baking these:

Kelley highly recommends them, and they are so easy to make – just add low-fat vanilla yogurt. I’ll let you know how they come out! I plan on enjoying one after my late-night PT with a glass of red wine. Perfect, no?
