Iceland: A Yogurt Treat


It’s no secret that Matt doesn’t like fish (except if it begins with a Ph) so our options for Icelandic cuisine were limited. We learned about a food that is unique to Iceland called Skyr, a creamy and think skimmed milk cheese.

We tried two flavors: plain and strawberry.

The plain flavor is traditionally eaten topped with berries. So that’s what we did.

It was interesting, the plain Skyr had the texture of Greek yogurt and the taste of sour cream. I’m not sure I would eat it again. Matt didn’t even finish his. Don’t worry, I finished it for him.

Later in the week I tried the strawberry flavored Skyr. It was much better! It filled in for my normal breakfast of Greek yogurt. Matt didn’t get to try any though so the verdict is still out on whether or not he would visit Iceland. Whoops.
