Mixed berry chia jam is a healthy, easy way to improve the nutrient density of traditional jam. It has a similar sweet yet slightly tart taste, texture, and thicker consistency as store-bought jams but with more nutrients!

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons 100% orange juice

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook fruit until it breaks down and becomes mushy (~8-10 minutes).
  2. Using the back of a spatula or potato masher, mash fruit until it reaches desired consistency.
  3. Stir in chia seeds, honey, and juice.
  4. Remove from heat and cool for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Serve or transfer to an air-tight container.

Notes

  • You can sub apple, lime, pomegranate, cherry, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, or lemon juice for orange juice. I'd pick one that would go with the fruit you use!
  • I love using different types of berries in this chia seed jam recipe but any fruit could be used: peaches, all strawberries, cherries, all raspberries, fresh apricots, fresh plums, all blueberries, etc.!
  • If you prefer a sweeter jam, you can add more honey or maple syrup. I would start by adding an additional tablespoon at a time and tasting to determine if you want to continue adding more!
  • If not eating soon, portion the jam in ice cube trays and freeze.  Once frozen, store in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 2 months!
