4 Healthy Snacks Dark Cherries

Skir-Coated Frozen Dark Cherries

  • Author: Bull Garlington


My need for something creamy and sugary is perfectly satisfied by these frozen cherries coated in Icelandic Skyr, and they’re good for me.


  • One 8 oz. bag of frozen dark cherries
  • One 8 oz. tub of vanilla Siggis Skir (or yogurt)


  1. Make some room in your freezer for a baking sheet
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper
  3. Use a toothpick, or a skewer, or a #3 philips screwdriver to dip each cherry into the Skir until it is coated, then place the cherry onto the baking sheet, leaving space between each. Remove the toothpick.
  4. Place the full sheet into the freezer for at least a half hour.
  5. Remove and serve. To yourself. Because you deserve it.


Skir is Icelandic yogurt. It’s denser than regular yogurt and has a less fragrantly fermented flavor. It balances very nicely against the cherries. You don’t have to use all the cherries and you might have Skir left over.
