Warm & Cozy
Warm up on a chilly day with our hot Apple Cider. Comforting, decadent, and healthful, this drink is perfect to have while curled up on the couch. This is a great single-serving beverage, but if you’re in the mood to share, whip up a few more cups and serve it to your friends and family. To amp up the flavors even more, top this cider off with some Icelandic Provisions Skyr instead of traditional whipped cream. This will reduce the amount of calories, sugar and fat, while providing you with a boost of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Nutrient Booster: Skyr
Icelandic Provisions Skyr adds a thick, creamy texture that’s less tart than Greek yogurt, and more flavorful than other dairy alternatives. Icelandic Provisions use authentic Heirloom Skyr Cultures that have been treasured and preserved in Iceland for hundreds of years, which where their distinct flavor comes from. Icelandic Provisions is the only authentic Icelandic Skyr in the U.S., so go ahead and try it out for yourself! You can eat it on it’s own, or incorporate it into some recipes such as our Pumpkin Overnight Oats. But, however you choose to consume it, Skyr is a food product that you don’t want to miss out on!
