Q: Is there a Greek yogurt that is low in sugar without any artifical sweeteners?

Posted August 14, 2013 in Advice Column, Ankeny

A: Siggi’s is a thick and creamy, skim-milk yogurt, referred to as skyr, which is based on a traditional recipe used in Iceland for more than 1,000 years. Siggi’s skyr yogurt is a strained version of non-fat yogurt, but packs more of a nutritional punch with 14 to 15 grams per serving — two to three times the amount of protein compared to regular yogurt. It has 30 percent less sugar than most yogurts and uses no artificial sweeteners. Only all-natural, minimal ingredients — milk, fruit and sugar — are used.

Freeze it: Simply blend fresh fruit and Siggi’s non-fat yogurt together, place in ice cube trays or ice pop molds, freeze and enjoy. Use in dip: Make a sweeter dip with Siggi’s fruit-flavored yogurt of choice, or a more traditional flavor with the plain variety. Pair with fun dippers such as graham crackers, mini whole grain waffles, pita chips, vegetables, fresh fruit and granola bites. Parfaits: Layer granola or whole grain cereal, fresh fruit and Siggi’s delicious yogurt in a container. Smoothies: Cool down with a cold and creamy smoothie in minutes. Choose one of Siggi’s flavored yogurts, low-fat milk and fresh or frozen fruit. Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Find Siggi’s yogurt in the HealthMarket at your Ankeny Hy-Vee.
