The Search for Perfect Plain Yogurt Ends With This Option
Welcome to our new food series called Eat It Up, where we’re sharing the products — edible, kitchen tools, cookbooks, and more — that we can’t stop talking about.
Our ride-or-die Greek yogurt isn’t actually Greek yogurt; it’s Siggi’s 4% Plain Skyr ($6), a strained Icelandic-style skyr that’s thick, creamy, and high in protein. Made with whole milk, a small amount of cream, and probiotic cultures, this full-fat skyr is very similar in style to Greek yogurt but has a certain special something-something to it. We can’t get enough of its just-right tanginess or its nutritional profile, which, thanks to a minimal amount of sugar and higher percentage of fat than many yogurts, keeps us full for hours.
We use it exactly how we use Greek yogurt: in smoothies (pair it with blueberries and bananas), topped with granola, as the base of creamy dips, and in any other number of sweet and savory applications. And for those of you who prefer flavored yogurt, do note that Siggi’s also offers up some excellent low(ish)-sugar versions; our favorites are the 0% Orange and Ginger, 4% Vanilla, and 9% Raspberry; or, make your own flavor by mixing in a bit of maple syrup or lemon juice into the plain.
