Raw Chia Strawberry Jam Recipe

Chia seeds' ability to absorb liquids lit a light bulb in our heads.... what if we blended some strawberries and poured in some chia seeds? Wouldn't that result in a healthy, yummy breakfast spread to wake up to? 

Read on to know how our foray into raw vegan jam-making went!  

Strawberry Chia Jam Recipe
Raw, Vegan, Refined Sugar-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free

200g strawberries
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (we’re using organic maple syrup)

1. Clean the strawberries thoroughly.*

2. Place the strawberries in a food processor. Drizzle in the organic maple syrup and start pulsing. How long you pulse depends on whether you’re a chunky strawberry bits or a smooth strawberry puree kinda person.

3. Stir in the chia seeds.

4. Transfer to a jar and keep in the fridge overnight (or at least 6 hours). 

There are way too many things you can do with a jar of raw strawberry chia jam sitting in your fridge, from topping wholemeal toasts, to dressing up overnight oats, to lending a sweet-and-sour flavour to a morning smoothie!

*Strawberries are known to contain high levels of pesticide. Go organic or, if you have access to a Kangen machine, soak the strawberries with high alkaline water (pH 11.5) to minimise pesticide residue.
