Arla Skyr with pistachio, raspberry and mint

Elevate breakfast or snack time by combining the natural creaminess of skyr with the vibrant sweet-tart flavour of raspberries, the satisfying crunch of pistachios, and the refreshing essence of mint. Simple to prepare yet impressively delicious, this topping is everything you need.


Step 1
  • Divide the Arla Skyr between two serving bowls
Step 2
  • Sprinkle raspberries and finely chopped pistachios over the Skyr
Step 3
  • Chop mint leaves and sprinkle them over the Skyr

Use fresh raspberries and mint leaves to maximize their vibrant flavours. Opt for ripe, plump raspberries for the best taste. If you want to use frozen raspberries, give them a quick boil before adding the sauce-like raspberries to the skyr – perhaps swirling them in for a nice, tasty effect.


For some texture variety, try mixing up the size of the pistachios, adding both chopped and crushed ones to the bowl. The smaller bits will blend in smoothly, while the larger chunks will bring a satisfying crunch that adds a whole new level of excitement to your skyr experience.

Questions about pistachio topping for skyr

This refreshing trio of flavours and textures will awaken your taste buds and add a burst of colour to your day. Below, you can learn more about this tasty pistachio topping.

Can you use pistachios as skyr topping?
Yes, you can use pistachio nuts as a topping for skyr. They add a delicious crunch and nutty flavour, enhancing both the taste and texture. Just make sure to chop the pistachios into smaller pieces before sprinkling them over the skyr to ensure a balanced and enjoyable eating experience. You can mix up the size of the chunks for some texture variation.
Does pistachio and raspberry go together?
Yes, pistachios and raspberries are a delightful flavour combination. The nuttiness of pistachios pairs well with the tartness and sweetness of raspberries, creating a balanced and contrasting taste experience. This combination is often used in various desserts, pastries, and dishes to add texture, colour, and flavour complexity. And so, they are also delicious together as a topping for skyr or yogurt.
What other toppings go well with pistachio on skyr?
If you are looking to mix up the pistachio topping, you can throw in some extra toppings. Alongside raspberries, fresh berries like blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries will not only bring a burst of colour but also add fruity flavours. For an extra dose of sweetness and decadence, drizzling some honey over the nutty pistachios creates a smooth and rich texture. And if you are in the mood for a chewy and sweet contrast, toss in chopped dried fruits like apricots, figs, or cranberries – they will perfectly complement the pistachios.
