Questions about skyr bowls

What is a skyr bowl?
A skyr bowl typically consists of a base of skyr, a traditional Icelandic dairy product like yogurt, which serves as the creamy foundation. It is then customised and enhanced with various toppings and mix-ins to add flavour, texture, and nutritional value. Common toppings include granola, fresh fruits like berries or sliced bananas, nuts, seeds, and sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. The versatility of these types of bowls allows for endless combinations and variations. They can be enjoyed as a satisfying breakfast, a post-workout snack, or even as a light dessert.
What can you add to a skyr bowl?
We suggest adding fresh fruits like sliced bananas and a variety of berries such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries to your skyr to provide a burst of fruity flavours. In addition, granola adds a delightful crunch, and you have the option to either make your own or use a store-bought variety. Chia seeds introduce a pleasant texture and a nutty taste to the bowl. If you want to include extra toppings, consider adding chopped nuts, toasted coconut flakes, or even a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for added sweetness.
What skyr to use in a skyr bowl?
You can use your favourite skyr for any bowl, but we opted for vanilla skyr in this one. Go with skyr natural, vanilla, forest fruit, or whatever version you have at hand. In general, skyr’s thick and creamy texture create just the right base you want in your bowl, making for a delicious mouthfeel no matter what flavour you use, whether it being sweet vanilla or plain skyr with its refreshing and slightly acidic note or something in-between.

Simple yet delicious base and luxurious toppings

At the heart of this breakfast bowl is skyr, a traditional Icelandic dairy product known for its thick, velvety texture and tangy flavour, and its smoothness sets the stage for the delightful crunch that awaits. The skyr is topped with a generous sprinkle of granola which adds a satisfying crunch and a burst of flavours that perfectly complement the tanginess of the skyr. An assortment of fresh fruits like sliced bananas and juicy berries provides a refreshing touch and a burst of colour.

The perfect bowl for experimenting

A skyr bowl embodies true versatility, giving you the freedom to personalise the toppings and unleash your creativity. To start, the granola you choose to use for topping can either be homemade or store-bought. By making it at home, you have full control over the ingredients and can customise it to your liking. You can experiment with different flavours like chocolate, coconut, or mixed berry granola, or get creative with spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. Additionally, you can experiment with the textures by incorporating crunchy clusters, nuts, and seeds, providing a delightful contrast to the smoothness of the skyr. Expand your creativity further by exploring different fruit toppings. Consider making a coulis or pureeing the berries for a delectable dessert-like addition. Alternatively, you can elevate your breakfast bowl with an indulgent touch by caramelising the bananas. Simply place sliced bananas in a pan with a small amount of butter and honey, achieving irresistibly golden-brown bananas that burst with flavour.
