no-cook CHIA-BANANA-BERRY JAM

Preparation time: 10 min

Ingredients for 1 large jar of jam:

  • 300g of mixed frozen or fresh berries
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 table spoons of ground flaxseed
  • 2 table spoons of chia seeds
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • knife edge of ground vanilla beans (optional)
  • 1 table spoon of maple syrup (optional)

Directions: Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until the mixture becomes smooth. Transfer the jam into the glass jar, close it tight and let it stand in the fridge for at least 15 min to thicken. If the mix is still not thick enough after 15 min you can add in another table spoon of ground flaxseed and leave it in the fridge a bit longer.

We suggest that the jam is made without sweeteners such as table sugar to keep the sugar content to a minimum, however, if you find the jam too sour, you can add in a small amount of maple syrup to make it more palatable.

Serve as a bread spread or add it to your morning porridge or smoothies.
