Fresh Fruit Chia Seed Jam
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Chia jam ready in just 15 minutes.
  • 2 cups fruit of your choice, fresh or frozen (I used strawberry and blackberry)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice or lemon juice (or pure vanilla extract)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or substitute honey)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  1. Add fruit and lime or lemon juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until fruit releases all its juices and smells fragrant. Stir frequently.
  3. Gently mash fruit up with a potato masher.
  4. Add maple syrup and chia seeds and cook for another 5 minutes on medium-low, stirring frequently.
  5. Careful the fruit does not stick to the bottom and watch the heat so the fruit still has some liquid and doesn't become dried out.
  6. Remove from heat and pour into a jar.
  7. Allow to cool and place in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
