Raspberry Chia Jam

February 17, 2020

The best raspberry chia jam ever!

You guys, chia jam is our jam. Its so easy to make, is super delicious and the kids love it on everything. It adds some serious nutrients to the dish as well. I'm talking:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids 
  • Fiber
  • Antioxidants
  • Iron & calcium and more!

Not to mention the nutrients in whichever fruit you decide to base the jam around. You can make virtually any fruit come to life in this jam recipe but a favourite for us is raspberry. We love the balance between tart and sweet and the punch of red makes it seem even more appealing! 

Here is the super simple recipe for you. Try adding the jam to your toast, muesli, yoghurt, smoothies, dessert- the sky is the limit!

Enjoy xx

  3. Let simmer for a couple of minutes on low heat while stirring.  This allows it to thicken a bit.  Transfer to a small glass jar and let cool comple
