Description

This homemade Strawberry Chia Jam is amazing! It’s quick and easy to make, requires only 3 INGREDIENTS, completely natural, and absolutely delicious.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 23 Tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Place the strawberries in a small saucepan and warm over medium to medium-high heat. Stir the strawberries fairly often once they begin to heat up, reduce and bubble. This usually takes about 5-10 minutes. Then, use a potato masher, wooden spoon, or rubber spatula to mash the strawberries to the consistency you prefer.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the maple syrup, and stir well to combine.
  3. Finally, add the chia seeds and stir until everything is well combined and begins to slightly thicken.
  4. Remove the jam from the heat completely and allow to cool to room temperature. The chia jam will thicken even more as it cools. 
  5. Once it has cooled completely, stir one final time, and serve. Store in a glass jar in the fridge up to 10 days. You can also freeze this for a couple of months.

 


Notes

Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice if you want your jam to be more tart.
