Smari Icelandic Yogurt

There are so many yogurt types on the market today--French, Greek, even Icelandic. Iceland is famous for their skyr, a super thick yogurt made since the 9th century. But you don't have to be a Viking to enjoy Smari yogurt. If you find it in local stores, pick some up, as it's a treat. There are other skyrs on the market, but I find them dry and chalky, whereas Smari is rich and creamy.

Smari yogurt is higher in protein than any other yogurt sold in the US. It's also loaded with calcium. The milk and fruit used in Smari--the only certified organic Icelandic yogurt available--are not treated with any hormones, pesticides, or herbicides.

Flavors include Pure, Strawberry, Blueberry, and Vanilla plus four new flavors: Peach; Coconut; Pure Whole Milk; Vanilla Whole Milk.

Not only is the yogurt really very good, but the packaging is almost completely recyclable. The labels are printed on cardboard, which zips off for easy disposal in the recycle bin, and the now naked plastic container can be rinsed and recycled, too.

We tend to eat yogurt for breakfast, but the Pure and Vanilla flavors, especially the whole milk versions, are ideal for baking as well. (I like to add some yogurt to pancake batter, so they don't turn out too spongy, but then I tend to like thin pancakes. YMMV.)
