Chia Jam sugar freeFor nutritious and rich in fibre breakfast
Preconception, pregnancy, lactation and kids
Raise your hand if you’re a fan of peanut butter and jam! I have always loved this classic combination. It is the ideal meal in pregnancy that is prepared in two minutes and goes great as a snack and fast breakfasts and every time when you want something filling and tasty at the same time. It’s a perfect match between
This jam takes about 10 minutes to be prepared and will last in the fridge for about a week. You can play with the doses if you don’t think you can consume the whole jar in a week. It’s so versatile: I use it on my toasts, in oatmeal for breakfast and even as an addition to Sunday pancakes. You can use any type of frozen berries in this recipe: I used blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries.
- 200g berries of any type (frozen or fresh)
- 1,5 tablespoon of chias seeds
Optional: lemon zest, cinnamon,
Instructions step by step
If you have time, unfreeze the berries first at room temperature saving the water that fruits release and that contains all the vitamins and antioxidants. When you heat berries too quickly, you lose precious Vit C that berries are rich in.
In the small saucepan, over the low temperature, heat fruits and chia seeds and mix everything well
Continue to stir until berries break and the mixture begins to thick, it may take 5-10 minutes. It may be necessary also to break larger pieces of fruit with a mixer to obtain a more uniform and smooth consistency
