Strawberry Chia Refrigerator Jam ~ RAW

It's been way too long since I made a chia jam. I only made one once, a blueberry grape version, which I loved so much and then totally forgot all about chia jam! What the heck? 

And easy? It's almost too easy to be called a recipe. Well, anyway… strawberries and chia seeds. Swoon. They just happen to be my top two favorite foods on the planet. So why I waited so long to make this is beyond me, but here it is, in all its 2-ingredient glory.

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, leaves removed
  • 2 TBS chia seeds
  • NOTE: You can add a sweetener if you like to suit your taste. But if your strawbs are sweet enough you certainly don't need to. My berries were not very ripe and a little sour so I added a tablespoon of date syrup. It was perfect.
  1. Mash the strawberries to a consistency you prefer. I cut them up small and used a potato masher. I like mine chunky. You could also put them in a food processor if you want a smoother jam but be careful not to process too much or the mixture will become very airy and you will lose the vibrant color of the berries!
  2. Add the chia seeds and mix well.
  3. Refrigerate.
That's it! Told you it was easy :)

Makes about 2 cups. Enjoy!

Healthy trails,
