siggi’s is one of my very favorite yogurt brands. The extra thick and creamy yogurt feels so decadent – almost too decadent to be healthy for you. But that’s not the case at all! The yogurt the perfect stand-in for eggs and cream to make a Healthy Berry Yogurt Brûlée recipe you can dig in to for breakfast or dessert.
Technically the yogurt is actually skyr (pronounced skeer), an Iclandic-style yogurt that’s strained until very thick yielding a creamy, cultured product that has 2-3 times the amount of protein as other types of yogurt. Each 8-ounce serving of plain skyr only contains 120 calories and a whopping 23 grams of protein with no added sugars, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, thickeners or coloring. The other varieties are sweetened with organic agave and contain real fruit, not flavorings.
The milk used in siggi’s comes from grass fed cows and is rBGH free. You couldn’t ask for a better yogurt. The plain yogurt lists only two ingredients: skimmed milk and live active cultures.
Healthy Berry Yogurt Brûlée
This recipe makes a lovely breakfast, snack or dessert. The best part is that it’s almost instant – only three ingredients and no baking required! Line the bottom of four six-ounce ramekins with fresh berries, then top with plain Siggi’s yogurt. Place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
Sprinkle the tops of each one with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon organic cane sugar. If you have a culinary torch, just run it over the top to melt and caramelize the sugar, otherwise place the ramekins under a hot broiler for a few minutes.
And that’s it! In about 15 minutes (not 4 or more hours!) you can be enjoying a healthy version of creme brulee with all of the flavor and satisfaction and none of the guilt!
There’s something really fun about cracking the top of the burnt sugar and digging into the thick, creamy yogurt and juicy, sweet berries.
