Easy Blueberry Chia Jam
You know when you just WANT something sweet but not so sweet that it will send you on a sugar binge worthy of an Academy Award? Then get ready, because this is about to shoot straight to the top of your Pinterest Board!
I think I’m the worlds biggest Chia fan. In fact, I may just start a Chia fan club.
I sprinkle it in my Green Smoothie Bowl eat Chia Pudding every day, throw a little (or a lot) in my Chocolate Banana Smoothie and sprinkle it like fairy dust in my Paleo Lemon Muffins. But now I have a new love (yes, I’m kinda fickle that way)… EASY BLUEBERRY CHIA JAM!!
I accidentally created this recipe a few years back and sure enough, it works! We all know the dangers of refined, white sugar. Forget about diabetes, weight gain and the whole “high fructose” thingy… I’m talking about the fact that one bite of that sweet white stuff and you’re hooked like a squirrel tasting M&M’s for the first time!
Even just the teeeeniest bit of white sugar sends me into a tail spin and an entire family sized block of chocolate will be nothing but crumbs within seconds, which was why I was so excited to discover a sweet treat that not only left my sanity intact, but tastes AH.MAZ.ING as well!
Want in? Yeah, I figured you would!
- 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
- 1tbsp rice malt syrup or honey
- 1/2 lemon, juice only
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, rice malt syrup/honey and lemon juice and stir until combined. Add berries and mash with fork for that rustic appeal or blend in your food processor for a silky smooth consistency. Stir through chia seeds and transfer to a glass jar and allow to set in the fridge for at 1-2 hours before devouring.
Here’s some fun uses for this little jar of red deliciousness:
Throw it on some gluten free bread
Spoon it into a Strawberry Weight loss Smoothie
Slop it between a couple of Banana Oatmeal Cookies (yup, guilty!)
Add it to your Berry Breakfast
Smooth it on your Chia Pudding
