Balanced by dried figs, fresh berries, and chia seeds

Dried figs, fresh berries, and chia seeds help round out the delicious flavour profile from the tangy skyr and potent ginger. Dried figs make sure that every bite comes with a deliciously chewy texture full of a rich, mildly caramel sweetness. The blueberries give a juicy fruity sweetness with a slight tang, while the pomegranate seeds supply refreshing juicy and tart notes. To round it off, adding but a small amount of chia seeds will help bring a mildly nutty flavour to the dish – aside from their visually pleasing looks.
