The easiest chia jam
Happy March sweet people! I’m finally returning back to work post hand surgery and quite excited. Plus I’m finally able to type with a bit of ease again so hallelujah. So with my commitment to not babble too much on my recipe posts… let’s get to it!
Just an fyi… you can add as much sweeterner as you prefer. I’m not a sugar fan – which is why I prefer to make my own because most commercial brands are overloaded. Plus adding chia seeds makes this nutritionally superior to its store counterpart. Fiber, omega 3’s, antioxidant and minerals rich.
2 bags of frozen fruit (I used Whole Foods organic raspberries/blackberries)
Juice of 1/2 of lemon
1 tbl of sweetener (I used maple syrup)
2 tbl chia seed
Into a small sauce pan add your 2 bags of frozen or fresh fruit, lemon juice and sweetener over low heat. Once the berries are broken down, mash with a whisk or potato masher to break down further. The cooking takes about 4-8 minutes. Then turn the heat off and add your chia seeds. Mix and allow to cool. It will thicken as it cools. Once completely cooled, add to a glass jar with a lid and store in the fridge.
Happy Monday friends! ~ox
