Day 11 of 12 of My Favorite Things. I recently was invited to a siggi’s yogurt tasting and workout – of course I said yes! siggi’s is one of two brands of yogurt that I will eat. Why? siggi’s Icelandic style yogurt, or skyr, is just as thick as Greek yogurt (if not thicker), extremely creamy, high in protein, and is low in sugar. If you’re a person who thinks plain yogurt tastes like sour cream, then siggi’s is for you. You can have flavored yogurt and be healthy because siggi’s flavored yogurt has half the sugar of other flavored yogurts. Today I’m giving away a month’s supply of siggi’s yogurt, so you can fuel your body right in 2015. You can even recreate these coconut and date protein balls that I tried at the siege’s yogurt tasting.
1 cup Medjool Dates, chopped (about 12-13 large dates)
1 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup hemp seeds, hulled
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut plus more for rolling
1/4 cup siggi’s Vanilla 0% Skyr yogurt (I used the plain, which has more protein that plain Greek yogurt)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend to desired consistency. Blend less for a crunchier protein ball.
When desired consistency is reached, form 1oz balls then roll in the shredded coconut to coat.
Store in the refrigerator and enjoy as a quick snack. Each protein ball is 60 calories.

Here’s How To Enter: Comment below sharing your favorite way to eat yogurt. Is it with fruit, in your smoothies, or with granola? I personally like adding spices to plain yogurt and creating a veggie dip. It’s a great alternative to ranch…although ranch tastes very good. I also like eating siggi’s coconut yogurt with berries. Yum! As always, earn an extra entry by sharing this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram by tagging @leangirlsclub and @siggisdairy.
