Cooling Condiment

Hilmarsson lives near Tribeca's highly regarded Pakistani Teahouse and loves its Chicken Jalfrezi. When he orders delivery, he dollops plain yogurt on top to chill down the dish's spiciness. "It works equally well with Mexican food as a substitute for sour cream," he says.


Easy Appetizer

Hilmarsson makes spelt blinis as a holiday dish for friends and family. "I like to dollop them with Plain Skyr that has chopped red onions and capers mixed into it," he says, "then top them with some smoked salmon."


Sweet Dessert

Roast figs in the oven and caramelize sliced almonds in a tiny amount of butter on the stove to make Hilmarsson's favorite dessert. "I pile the almonds warm on top of the roasted figs with, you guessed it, a large dollop of Plain Skyr (around one tbsp. per fig.)," he says. "The temperature and flavor contrast is awesome.”


Bedtime Snack

Hungry late at night? Skip the ice cream and go for yogurt with decadent flavor instead. "I like our Orange and Ginger as a snack before bedtime," says Hilmarsson. "I generally need something at night, and it’s easy to digest and satiating without being heavy."


Sandwich Spread

Hilmarsson adds a touch of creaminess to his favorite sandwich (turkey, avocado, tomato and sprouts) with a layer of plain yogurt. "I like to add freshly chopped herbs, like basil, chives and thyme and use it as a sandwich spread,” he says.


Fruit Smoothie

After his weekly Tuesday-night basketball games or a hard workout, Hilmarsson says this smoothie recipe is "a must."

Throw the following ingredients in a blender:

½ c. coconut water
Handful of frozen strawberries
1 banana
1 c. Siggi’s Blueberry Skyr
1 scoop of protein powder (Hilmarsson likes Jarrow unflavored whey protein), if desired.


Breakfast Parfait

If granola with yogurt is your go-to, mix things up with Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Cereal. Says Hilmarsson: "I usually start the day with two cups of Grapefruit Skyr (it's hard to say but I think it’s my favorite) with Ezekiel's, walnuts and fresh blueberries from the fruit stand by our office."
