Icelandic Skyr

My newest obsession... Skyr!

Skyr is an Icelandic dairy product, that has been a Icelandic staple for nearly 1,000 years. It is even mentioned in a number of medieval Icelandic sources, including Egil's saga and Grettis saga.


Introduced to US markets by WholeFoods about 15 years ago. Skyr has grown in popularity & several brands can be found in most grocery stores.

  • Siggis

  • Skyr.is

  • Icelandic Provisions

  • Smari

  • KEA Skyr


Frankly, I don't care what you call it- It's awesome! Can be sweet or savory- plain or with fruit, replaced for sour cream or used in recipes. True Skyr is naturally fat-free, low calorie, and low in sugar. It is high in protein, healthy fats, as well as, vitamins and nutrients. It is also rich in probiotic cultures. Necessary for creating healthy gut bacterial flora that assists with boosting your immune system and utilization of nutrients. Not to mention it is extremely filling.


Is it any wonder it is gaining popularity with Olympians?
