Mainstream yogurts can have up to 25g of sugar per serving. Our flavored varieties have 8-11g and are sweetened with fruit and all-natural sweeteners like agave or cane sugar. (Our plain variety has no added sugar.)
Since skyr is traditionally fat free, it has been an age old practice to throw a bit of cream back into it for a tad richer touch: generally called rjóma-skyr, or skyr with cream. Delicious!
It has long been a custom to pour fresh cream over your skyr to create what is called rjóma-skyr. Siggi's dad, for example, may even have more cream than skyr in his elaborate concoction! We try to recreate that richer experience here using whole milk and a bit of cream.
When Siggi was a kid, his mom used to take plain skyr and mix it up, fifty-fifty, with whipped cream and then add fruit to the mix to create a very satisfying, rich concoction he loved. Our triple cream yogurt is inspired by his mom's simple recipe, which by the way never had a name aside from “skyr and cream”!
