Blueberry and Skyr Winter Dream

Holiday Baking! So much fun, and it really gets me in the spirit of the season. I celebrate Christmas, but these are perfect for whatever winter holiday you are celebrating. I love this gluten-free version with Skyr, lemon and blueberry. They’re amazing as is, but are delicious topped with a bit of the Skyr icing MAGIC ELIXIRS.


I’m delighted to be sponsored by Icelandic Provisions. I absolutely love working with their Skyr, which is a cultured dairy product rooted in Iceland. Skyr (pronounced “skier”) is to Iceland as Champagne is to France. Unlike similar cultured dairy products of this style, Icelandic Provisions Skyr is the only one in America that actually comes from Icelandic cultures, which give it a fantastic weight and texture. It’s packed with protein and mindful of sugar and I love Icelandic Provisions‘ commitment to making a clean healthful product.
