siggi’s yogurt: my favorite snack + giveaway!

Instead of talking about five of my favorite things this Friday, I thought I would highlight one of my MOST favorite things: siggi’s yogurt!

I have been meaning to post for a while now about how I am part of the siggi’s Culture Club! After being obsessed with siggi’s yogurt for a few years now, I applied to be part of their ‘Culture Club.’ I wanted to be an advocate for their delicious and healthy yogurt! My goal is to spread the goodness of the siggi’s product and message:

“simple ingredients, not a lot of sugar.”

Yogurt used to give me a stomach ache…all the time. For years I stopped eating it because it was too sweet. I wanted the greek yogurt for the protein content, but the added sugar and syrups were not what I loved. When I came across siggi’s all of that changed.  I realized that it wasn’t the yogurt that was making me feel sick, it was all of the sugar in the yogurt!

siggi’s yogurt is skyr Icelandic-style strained yogurt. It is very similar to Greek yogurt, but has a creamier texture (think pudding-like) and has very few ingredients. It also has a lot of protein (14 grams per container!).  Since the yogurt does not have a ton of sugar, it’s a little tart, which I love!

Here is a little tidbit about Siggi’s from their website:

What is skyr?
Skyr is the traditional yogurt of Iceland. It is made by incubating skim milk with live active cultures. The whey, the water naturally found in milk, is then strained away to make for a much thicker, creamier, concentrated yogurt. To make just one cup of skyr, with all that water going out, you need 3-4 times the amount of milk required to make a regular cup of yogurt. As a result of this process, skyr contains 2-3 times the protein count of standard yogurt.

What separates siggi’s?
At siggi’s, we make delicious yogurt products with not a lot of sugar and simple ingredients… Our products don’t contain any of those dreadful artificial sweeteners. We only use milk from farmers who do not use growth hormones such as rBGH.

Thanks to siggi’s healthy ingredients, low sugar and high protein content, it’s perfect for an afternoon snack, a post-run recovery fuel or a late night treat before bed. It is honestly the most satisfying yogurt on the planet.

Here are some toppingsI like to add to my siggi’s:

  • Chopped Walnuts (for Omega-3’s)
  • Purely Elizabeth Granola
  • Chia Seeds
  • Rolled Oats

Siggi’s has many flavors but my favorites are: Blueberry, Peach and Strawberry.

    I also LOVE siggi’s! After having a stopover in Iceland on our way to Paris last summer, I wanted to see if I could find some yogurt that was similar to what I had in the airport. I was happily surprised to find siggi’s quite easily and instantly fell in love with their coconut flavor. I loved it so much, I also did a post about it! Hello, siggi’s fan club!
