Blueberry Grape Chia Seed Refrigerator Jam. RAW.

Holy cow! I could not wait to share this recipe with you. It is by far the tastiest jam I have ever had. AND, the best part… it’s loaded with those healthy little chia seeds! Yes! You don’t need to cook the fruit and the chia helps it to thicken in the fridge. How easy, fun, delicious and nutritious! Use any fruit you like, too. Piled high atop a freshly-baked almond flour biscuit, this stuff was too good for words!

I used grapes to sweeten this jam but you could also use a little maple syrup, date syrup or coconut nectar, whatever you like and depending on how sweet (or not) your fruit is, you may not need any additional sweetener. I used frozen blueberries. I’m sure it would work as well with fresh, but I haven’t tried that yet. Whatever fruits you decide to use, you MUST try this simple, fresh treat!

Makes about 2 cups. Enjoy!

Healthy trails,

    Umm looks yummy. Could I substitute strawberries and see what happens?

    You're welcom, Bethery! Trix, you can use whatever fruits you like! If you're using fresh strawbs, I would just mash them up with a fork.. They get really frothy in the food processor and have a bit of an odd consistency in the jam (I used them the first time I tried this jam). If they are frozen and thawed, they should be okay in the processor. Let me know how you like it! 🙂
