Want to try making something new? How about some healthy homemade chia jam? Chia seeds are one of those superfoods that you can include in your diet in so many different ways. Full of nutrients, chia seeds are perfect to sprinkle on top of your yogurt, toss in your smoothie, top off your salad, or what I love to do… make chia jam! If you enjoy incorporating jam in your daily breakfast routine, this chia jam recipe is a delight. Swap out the usual plain old strawberry jam for this fruity, fibre packed chia jam.
Here at Urban Hippie we love to add a bit of health to our daily meals. This is a perfect recipe if you want to change up your regular jam and try making your own at home! The puffed chia seeds make for a great spread on toast, with the addition of a subtle crunch from the seeds. Making homemade jam like this is so easy. Moreover, it’s also perfect when you want to start eating a little more naturally.
Store bought jam can be filled with all kinds of sweeteners and preservatives. Therefore, with this recipe you’ll be able to choose what goes into your jam. This includes adding all your favourite seeds and berries to your liking. For example, I love spreading this chia jam on my morning toast with peanut butter, or even my pancakes sometimes! In other words, it really works with everything just like regular jam!
