Refrigerator Chia Seed Jam – 3 Flavors!

Refrigerator Chia Seed Jam is a much healthier alternative to store-bought jam. This jam is one of the easiest recipes to make! No cooking, no canning, no pectin and only natural ingredients! This super-easy and very healthy jam is made with just berries, a little natural sweetener (if any) and chia seeds! That’s it! Traditional jam relies on pectin to gel, but this jam gels with the help of chia seeds!

This jam is great on toast, pancakes, waffles, stirred into oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, or for a classic PB&J!

During this video I will show you how to make 3 delicious flavors of chia seed jams!

 Featured Recipes:

Strawberry Lemon Chia Seed Jam

1 cup strawberries
1 Tbsp chia seed
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp lemon juice

Very Berry Strawberry Raspberry Chia Seed Jam

1 1/2 cup strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp honey

Blueberry Honey Chia Seed Jam

1 cup blueberries
1 Tbsp chia seed
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla

Directions

Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and mix to desired consistency. Slightly blending it will give it a jam consistency while blending it more will give it a jelly consistency. Pour mixture into a glass jar and place in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 1 hour before serving. If you desire a thicker consistency add another teaspoon or two of chia seeds, stir, and let sit for another 10 minutes. Chia seed jam will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It also freezes fairly well in an airtight container.

    Absolutely! It freezes well. I put it in mini mason jars and then store the extras in my freezer and then defrost and use as needed.
