Blueberry compote
  • Heat frozen blueberries over low heat in a pan. Add a little water if necessary.
  • Add lime juice and sugar and let simmer to dissolve the sugar.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, add chia seeds, and stir.
  • Leave to cool while stirring occasionally.
To serve
  • Spoon skyr into two bowls and top with a spoonful of blueberry chia compote, oats, and maple syrup. Serve immediately.

To make the presentation extra beautiful, try layering the ingredients in a jar. The alternating layers of snow-white skyr and colourful blueberry compote topped off with oats and a drizzle of maple syrup will create an extravagant feel.


If you want an extra crunchy experience, add a sprinkle of chopped almonds or coconut flakes. You can also add a few fresh blueberries to enhance the blueberry flavour and provide a subtle crispiness.

Can you make blueberry compote with fresh or frozen blueberries?
