SUMMER BERRY CHIA JAM
Posted on 09/16/2015 by Kulae
This week, I thought I’d share with you a recipe that my boyfriend’s mother forwarded to me. It is a simple, yet delicious way to use those fresh summer berries that are in season right now, as well as finding another way to incorporate omega-3 rich chia seeds into your diet. I thought this would be an appropriate time to review just some of the amazing health benefits of including berries in your diet.
Summer Berry Chia Jam
2 cups fresh summer berries – I like to use raspberries and blackberries
2 tablespoons chia seeds
Cook the berries in a small pan over medium heat, mashing with a fork as it cooks for 5 minutes. Stir in the chia seeds. Place jam in an airtight container and store in fridge for up to two weeks.
makes 1 cup
My favorite way to serve this is spread on top of a rice cracker thin, topped with coconut butter, then the berry jam. It is so yummy! I also find this pretty delicious added to a smoothie in place of other fruit.
