Raw Chia Seed Jam
Have you ever craved jam but realized you don’t have any at home?
Here’s a quick and easy to make recipe for a jam that’s completely raw. This recipe requires no cooking and no machines. In fact, you can use this method to make jam out of any fruit, but if you don’t have a blender or a food processor at hand, the fruits that work best are strawberries and bananas, since they are easy to mash with a fork.
- 1 cup of fruit
- 1 tablespoon of drinking water (or fruit juice) – the quantity depends on how juicy your fruits are
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- Sweetener of your choice – optional
Mash your fruits (in my case banana) with a fork or use a blender/food processor. Add water (I used cherry juice) and mix them well. Then add the chia seeds and mix again. Put the mixture in a jar and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour until it gets a jelly texture. Then enjoy it as regular jam. 🙂
It should last in the refrigerator for a few days.
