If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only eat three foods for the rest of my life, they would be: peaches, chocolate, and Greek yogurt. I love yogurt – especially when it’s paired with raw oatmeal (try it – I swear it’s delicious) or crunchy granola.
I used to buy non-flavored yogurt and sweeten it with a touch of honey, but I fell out of the habit. Why? Well, I really, really like the taste of sweetened vanilla yogurt… so I buy it despite the fact that most brands are loaded with sugar (and despite the fact that I know I feel more energetic throughout the day if I don’t have a sugary breakfast). That’s why I was SO excited to get a chance to try out siggi’s Icelandic-styled strained yogurt. The tagline for the brand is "More protein than sugar." A flavored yogurt with less sugar and no artificial sweeteners? I’m in!
Read on for a siggiâ€™s coupon and a granola recipe!
Just compare the siggi’s yogurt to my normal Trader Joe’s option:
That’s 14 grams of protein and 9 grams of sugar in siggi’s v. 12 grams of protein and 17 grams of sugar in Trader Joe’s brand. Crazy! And the siggi’s yogurt is really delicious – super thick and creamy, and the flavors aren’t overwhelming (think a yummy hint of strawberry or coconut, not like BAM! STRAWBERRYFAKENESS!).
siggi’s goes perfectly with this delicious homemade yogurt, which also has a lot less sugar than most store-bought granola brands. You can use it to make a yummy yogurt parfait!
