An ode to yogurt (+Siggi’s yogurt giveaway)

August 2nd, 2010 · 156 Comments · giveaways, yogurt

Remember when I met Siggi?

This was where I picked up his vanilla supuh thick Icelandic style yogurt and fell in love :)

A little later I tried the orange & ginger flavor and really appreciated its unique flavor.

This yogurt is not for the faint of heart (it’s quite tangy in my opinion) but I think I’m pretty hardcore and really like these 2 flavors. Have you ever tried Siggi’s yogurt? If not, today is your change to win some!! :mrgreen: But before we get into that, I figured it would be fun to show you my favorite ways of enjoying yogurt, and maybe you can tell me all about yours. :)

I like my yogurt with a side of a raspberry scone and fresh fruit…

On top of nut butter covered waffles (sometimes with a drizzle of maple syrup… yum!)

Yogurt definitely makes a great protein-packed snack!

As a star in an everything-but-the-kitchen sink yogurt mess (actually this one looks quite pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Over delicious french toast with berries

And of course as “cheese” in a breakfast pizza

It’s quite versatile, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ˜€
