…and why Siggi’s is the only yogurt you should buy!
Siggi’s is like the Beyonce of yogurt. She’s good at what she does, no gimmicks, just natural low sugar goodness. Now, this post could easily sound like something sponsored by Siggi’s – I’m here to tell you (i wish) it’s not! I just really love this product, have for years and want to tell you why I think it’s the best option at the market!
For a while, I sworn off yogurt because it upset my stomach. I limit my dairy in take, but yogurt and aged cheese are the exceptions. The probiotics keep me in check and I think it’s the ultimate protein filled snack.
Siggi’s ratio of sugar to yogurt is what we should all strive for in life. They have a large variety of flavors and fat content, because fat is not the enemy – it actually helps our body absorb protein better! Their 2% milk fat vanilla is almost as good (let’s not get crazy) as vanilla ice cream when paired with berries, cacao nibs, and almond butter.
Icelandic yogurt is richer than Greek and has a better texture – in my opinion. Though wonderfully creative, Siggis’s flavors are not overpowering and theres no separated- syrupy toppings. It’s just rich probiotic goodness.
What’s life without a magnificent yogurt bowl?? Here are three yogurt bowl combinations perfect for summer! Give em a go and if you do, let me know what you think of Siggi’s!
ORANGE VANILLA PISTACHIO
Why I love this combination: The sweet, sweet orange pair well with the tart vanilla Siggi’s. A small drizzle of 1/2 a tsp of maple syrup balances the flavors. Orange zest adds a little flavor punch (my favorite part) and the pistachios offer great flavor, crunch and color.
Rasberry chia jam with slivered almonds
Did you know, if you have chia seeds and frozen (or fresh) raspberries on hand you can make a jam in 15 minutes or less? Yup, it’s true! For a single serving, add 1 cup of berries, a tablespoon of water and if necessary, 1 tsp of maple syrup to a pot – stir it up, add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and let simmer till thickened!
I top vanilla Siggi’s with this super easy jam and slivered almonds for the perfect balance of crunchy, nutty, tart goodness. Not to mention scraping the pan clean and eating every last bit of that jam.
Who loves piña coladas? (and laying out in the sand?) This girl! And in summertime I could probably down, mm give or take, 10 of them, but let’s be real – there’s nothing healthy about that! So here’s a Siggi’s virgin piña colada!
What we have here: vanilla sigs with half a broiled banana topped with cinnamon and coconut sugar. The piña colada flavor comes through with the addition of fresh pineapple cut in small chunks and crunchy coconut chips. I’m telling you, this freakishly taste like a piña colada- would I recommend pouring some rum on it? I’m not sure… depends on the time of day! LOL
Thanks for reading folks, and if you do decide to put rum in your piña colado yogurt bowl, please let me know how it goes.
Till next time, EM
