Icelandic Style Nonfat Yogurt

September 23, 2017 in Category: What's New

Iceland is home to some of the most wondrous and awe-inspiring terrain we’ve ever seen. It’s also home to some of the most wondrous and awe-inspiring yogurt we’ve ever tasted. Icelanders call this yogurt skyr (pronounced “skeer”), and we call it delicious.

It’s so delicious that, after a recent overseas adventure, our Product Innovator returned stateside bound and determined to develop Trader Joe’s very own skyr. Well, her determination paid off… in the form of Trader Joe’s Icelandic Style Plain and Strawberry Nonfat Yogurts.

Just like traditional skyr—which has been a staple of the Icelandic diet since it was brought over from Norway a millennium ago—our Icelandic Style Nonfat Yogurt is strained so that it’s exceptionally thick and creamy. It’s reminiscent of nonfat Greek yogurt, but even smoother and with slightly less bite.

Icelandic Style Yogurt does have sour notes, but it also boasts a bit of natural, residual sweetness to balance them out. If you prefer your yogurt on the sweeter side, the Strawberry flavor, with strawberries, strawberry puree and cane sugar, should suit you nicely.

Enjoy Icelandic Style Nonfat Yogurt by itself or mixed with fruit and Muesli. Use it in your morning smoothie for an added protein boost—each 8-ounce serving of Plain Yogurt boasts 22 grams of protein, while each serving of Strawberry offers 20 grams of protein. Or, if you’re craving something sweeter, blend it with a bit of cream cheese and sugar, then layer it in a parfait with Raspberry Preserves and crumbled Speculoos Cookies.

We’re offering 8-ounce cups of kosher Icelandic Style Plain or Strawberry Nonfat Yogurt for $1.39 each, every day. You’ll find them in our dairy case, getting cozy with our other yogurts.
