Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam

0 from 0 votes

Delicious superfood jam made with only three ingredients.

Mixed berries and chia seeds combine to create a seriously delicious jam!

This recipe for mixed berry chia jam is super simple, packed with omega-3 fatty acids and so much better for you than the sugar-filled, processed jam you can buy at the store. The best part is that you can use almost any berry you like – a mixture of blueberries, cherries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries works great. This jam tastes so good you’ll be tempted to eat it straight from the container as a snack, but you can also spread it on pancakes and biscuits, use it as a topping for oatmeal and yogurt, or make a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich — the possibilities are endless!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Refrigerate 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Yield 16 people
Serving Size 2 tablespoons
Course Condiment
Cuisine Universal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed berries frozen or fresh
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • stevia to taste (optional)

Instructions

  • If using frozen berries, let them thaw.
  • Place berries and chia seeds into a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined.
  • Taste and add stevia if necessary. I used 2-3 drops of liquid stevia, but I don’t think it would be necessary with super sweet berries. It just depends on how sweet you want your jam.
  • Cover the mixture and place in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes to set. Enjoy!
  • Keep leftovers in a covered container in the fridge. The jam should stay good for at least a week.
