Icelandic Yogurt

This thick, creamy concoction, also known as skyr, is giving Greek yogurt some stiff competition. Like Greek yogurt, skyr is made with three times the milk of most traditional yogurts and then carefully strained to remove excess liquid. The result: a rich, velvety creation that boasts 14 grams of slowly-digested protein per 5.3 ounce container. The main difference between Icelandic and Greek yogurts is their fat content. While Greek may or may not contain fat, Icelandic yogurt is only made with non-fat milk, so it’s guaranteed to be fat free. If you can’t find Icelandic yogurt to use in this recipe, opt for fat-free Greek yogurt.
