Berry Chia Jam

Who knew making jam at home was so easy and quick? This recipe is an affordable way to make jam at home using frozen fruits of your choice or a great way to use fresh in-season fruits before they go bad. Chia seeds help give that jammy texture while providing you with antioxidants to fight free radicals and fibre to help you stay fuller for longer. Berries are also full of antioxidants and vitamins, making this recipe a great alternative to store-bought jams; you can also adjust the sweetness to your liking. Quick, healthy and customizable– what’s not to love?
