This is the first time I have ever tried siggi’s Icelandic yogurt. What makes it different from “regular” yogurt is that it uses four times the amount of milk to make. It strains the whey off to make a much thicker, creamier yogurt. This also makes it higher in protein. It does not contain any artificial sweeteners either. What a great start to my holiday dishes!
In our house–the holiday season starts with Halloween and ends with New Years Eve. We have already attended so many parties where I needed to bring an appetizer or a dish. I need to start my Christmas baking, and there’s Thanksgiving right around the corner. The fridge is full of recipes I have been wanting to try. One that I have used three or four times in the last month is a quick appetizer that is made healthier by using siggi’s 0% milk fat Vanilla yogurt and low-fat whipped cream. A relative of mine brought it as a dessert, served with graham crackers and vanilla wafers–and I had to have the recipe. When she told me how incredibly easy it was–I was so surprised!
- 2 cups siggi's 0% milk fat plain yogurt
- 2 cups low-fat whipped topping
- 1 box cake mix
- Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Chill. Serve with graham crackers or vanilla wafers.
With all the sweet things available at this time of the year, I feel better knowing I am using healthier ingredients for my appetizers! I love the individual siggi’s yogurts too! So far my favorite is the strawberry-rhubarb. Give them a try today.
