When I was in the hospital after having my daughter, a really excellent friend with really excellent instincts came and visited us in the hospital. Instead of the more traditional flowers, she brought a bag from Whole Foods filled with pre-cut fruit, crackers, fancy cheese, chocolate, and the most delicious yogurt:
Siggi's, which its website describes as "Icelandic style skyr strained nonfat yogurt."
Icelandic yogurt? Uh, sure!
After that day, I never saw the yogurt again. I’m not at Whole Foods very often, and I figured it was super fancypants and I was unlikely to see it around.
Then a few weeks ago, I found it at Walgreens. Huh.
This is similar to greek yogurt- thick, tangy, and nice protein-to-calorie ratio. (14 grams of protein in a 100-calorie container.) Unlike Chobani or Fage flavors, though, the flavors are mixed throughout and aren’t too sweet. In fact, Siggi is sweetened only with agave, and has way less sugar than many varieties (9 grams per pot- much of which is from the milk itself, not added sweetener).
I now see it regularly at Whole Foods, our local grocery store and this one “flagship” Walgreens (let’s not even talk about how absurd that is,) so I’m concluding that it’s gaining a foothold, and thus won’t be impossible to find. If you like greek yogurt and are looking for a high-protein snack, I highly encourage you to check it out.
