We are celebrating red foods this month for National Heart Health Month. This recipe is one of the tastiest I have made in a long time and more importantly, so simple. We gobbled it up at our house! I love how delicious and healthy this is. Start with berries like strawberries or raspberries. Add some natural sweetener like honey. Chia seeds which as loaded with fiber and healthy fats do the job of thickening this up. God, it is good. enjoy.
Strawberry Chia Jam
- 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds (we used white in the recipe)
In a small saucepan, heat the berries, honey and water to defrost frozen berries or soften fresh (3-5 minutes). Mash with a fork or pulse in food processor to desired consistency. Stir in the chia, cover and refrigerate overnight.
