mmmmm… siggi’s, Icelandic-style “skyr” (non-fat yogurt)

I grew up hating yogurt, and now… I can’t get enough.  I discovered siggi’s yesterday, and it’s EXCELLENT!  Give it a shot.  I’m especially liking the grapefruit flavour.

The yogurt is actually “skyr” which is Icelandic.  According to the siggi’s website:

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. So 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 comes out with 2-3 times the protein count of standard yogurt.

It’s similar to greek yogurt, but heavier.
