Peach, pecan, and cardamom topping for Skyr

Every day is the perfect day to spice up your breakfast, afternoon snack, or dessert, and with a meal as sweet, crunchy, and tasty as this one, you cannot go wrong. Combine peach, pecan, and cardamon for a powerful topping on your skyr bowl. The recipe is simple, easy, and with only a few ingredients, which means that you only need five minutes to prepare it.


Step 1
  • Divide the skyr between two serving bowls.
Step 2
  • Cut each peach into eights and discard the stone. Chop the pecans.
Step 3
  • Arrange the peaches on the skyr and top with the chopped pecans.
Step 4
  • Pour maple syrup on top and distribute the cardamon seeds over the bowls.

Try roasting the pecans to enhance the rich nuttiness. You can do it in the oven or a pan. You can dice the peaches if you prefer smaller pieces rather than wedges. It might be easier to get a bit of everything on the spoon when the pieces are smaller.


Arrange skyr and toppings in a container with a lid if you want a solid breakfast to-go. Note that the toppings might lose freshness and crunch if you leave it for too long, so consider keeping skyr and toppings separately if you do not eat it straight away.
