I am so excited to partner with siggi’s Icelandic-style strained yogurt for this colorful, creative healthy breakfast recipe! I remember the first time I saw siggi’s on the shelf at Whole Foods. In a refrigerated aisle filled with cups of yogurt, siggi’s adorable minimalist recyclable packaging definitely stood out to me, so of course I bought it – totally based on looks (although the nutrition stats were pretty awesome as well)! Go ahead and judge siggi’s by their super awesome packaging, because their product is just as amazing on the inside as it is on the outside! Just like their motto states “simple ingredients, not a lot of sugar.”
“In fact, every container of siggi’s yogurt contains more protein than sugar. siggi’s products do not contain any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, flavors or colors and is made with milk from cows not treated with rGBH.” -siggi’s
What is “Skyr” or Icelandic Yogurt?
Skyr, pronounced “skeer,” 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 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.

I love siggi’s recyclable packaging. The outer label is removable so it can be recycled separately from the plastic – so clever!
For today’s recipe, I used a 5.3 oz container of siggi’s Vanilla, which has only 100 calories 0g fat, 14g protein, and 9g sugar. I love love love the Madagascar bourbon vanilla used in this flavor. You can see flecks of real vanilla bean in the yogurt, and the flavor is just magical!
With thick creamy Icelandic-style yogurt, sweet pomegranate seeds, and crunchy pistachios, this breakfast bark has the perfect combination of salty and sweet, plus an added punch of protein and antioxidants to start your morning off right!
