Real Clean: Strawberry Apricot Chia Jam

Leave a comment

This is one of those recipes that is not a recipe at all! It’s really just what it sounds like, and tastes amazing atop toast!

Choose any fruit you would like! Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Peaches, Nectarines, Apricots, Apples, Bananas, anything! Or a combination of these! Chop up about 3 cups, and process in your food processor (or a good blender). Leave it a little chunky, or process until smooth.. whichever you prefer. Mix in 2 tablespoons chia seed (mix well), and pour into an airtight container or jar and refrigerate.

The next day, or even just a couple hours later, it should be nice and thick. You can always add more chia seeds at this point if it is not thick enough. You will notice that it is not as sweet as traditional jellies and jams, BUT it tastes just as amazing and really couldn’t get any more natural. I find the ‘less sweet’ taste to be better myself, and I wouldn’t call it less sweet… I would call it more real.

Happy eating!

And remember, we all have different constraints. Do the best you can with what you have and what you know, if you do that you will continue to grow.
