Why Skyr tart? The protein-rich Icelandic Yogurt dessert

skyr tart recipe

Hoi, hello, bonjour, my GF’s, my new 3 o’clock recipe obsession is finally on The Blog, skyr tart with blueberries. Ever since we are in lockdown, I felt suddenly the urge to get creative in the kitchen and among other recipes create this creamy sweet treat. I couldn’t keep this a secret for any longer, and I am sharing this today with you so that within moderation you can enjoy this treat too GF. 

Before I share my secret sauce here with you, let’s tell you in more detail about the main ingredient of this delicious treat. Yes GF, It’s all about skyr today! 🤫


What is skyr? 

Skyr tastes smells and looks like quark. But believe it or not my friend, it’s part of the food category soft cheese. What??? Soft cheese!! Yes, soft cheese girl. When you eat a portion, it’s creamy and has a mild flavor. So, when I  eat this I always have the sense that I am eating yogurt. Is nature tricking us? 😁

Oh! Before the word gets out, it’s pronounced like ‘skeer’ or in Dutch ‘skir’. You know I like to support your girls, and getting the word out correctly is for sure one of the things you do when you team up. So, more about this pretend yogurt that is a rich source of protein, calcium, and probiotics in this blog post. 

A glimpse of the nutrition values 

As you can see GF, skyr is high in protein and low in fat. Proteins are essential for our biological functions and it plays a key role in the growth, repair, and function of body cells, tissues, and organs. Skyr contains a probiotic called bifidobacterium which can have a positive effect on our digestive health.  And who doesn’t want to have a good pooeee.  😜 

Skyr, also has a reputation, as other dairy products do too, of containing a good amount of calcium. Calcium plays a particular role in developing and maintaining bones, which is at his high pick around 30 to 35 years of age. Below a little lay down of the macronutrients of skyr. Keep in mind my girlfriend, that every brand has his specifics. Always check the labels in the shops for the most accurate measures before you buy them. Now let’s move on to the best part of The Blog, making our own skyr treat.

Make a skyr tart for a 3 o’clock sweat or a dessert after dinner

The sour and creamy texture of the skyr is the perfect filling for a cake or tart. I have to be honest with you, that’s what GF’s do right? 🙂 The idea of this treat wasn’t entirely my own. Oh! Really? I got this recipe from a food contest hosted by Njamtv. Njam! is a culinary platform with a whole range of cooking projects, ranging from a TV program to a magazine. Sharing the link here with you to the original recipe. It’s in Dutch, but no worries GF’s I got you all covered with my own tailored recipe of Skyr tart in this blog post. 


Here’s what you will need for your treat:

For the pastry

  • 250 gram plain fluor
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 8 tbsp coconut oil
  • 6 tbsp honey

For the filling

  • 400 gram skyr
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract 
  • 2 tbsp spiced biscuit (you can skip this if you like creamy no crispy) 
  • 250 gram fruits (any kind of berries will do) 

Here’s how to make skyr tart for a 3 o’clock snack: 

  • Blend flour, baking powder, coconut oil, and honey until you have a pastry texture;
  • Spoon the texture evenly into a pot and make the tart base; 
  • Put it in the oven for 20 minutes and let it chill afterward;
  • Mix all filling ingredients and pour the mixture on top of the tart base; 
  • Top it off with berries and if you like the crispy taste with churned spiced biscuits; 
  • Heat the oven up to 170 degrees and let it bake for 40 minutes.


Ultimate tip! You can store it in a container and put it in the freezer so that it lasts for a week or longer.
