  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 7 minutes


  • 2 cups chopped fresh fruit 
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons agave, maple syrup, or sugar (optional)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds


  1. Prep the fruit:  Remove stems and slice in half. You can use any other fruit but recommend those with a high water content (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, but can also do peaches, apples etc)
  2. Cook the fruit down:  Transfer the fruit to a saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook until the fruit begins to break down and takes on a  syrupy consistency, 5 to 10 minutes. Mash the fruit with a fork or potato masher, until you achieve the desired consistency. Remove from the heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon of sweetener and lemon juice. Add more as needed. If you’d like to add vanilla or another extract, do so now.
  3. Stir in the chia seeds. Add the chia seeds and stir to combine.
  4. Allow the jam to thicken. Let the jam stand for 5 minutes or more, until thickened. If you want it thicker, stir in more chia seeds 1 teaspoon at a time. The jam will further thicken once set in the fridge. 
  5. Storage. Once the jam has come to room temperature, transfer it to a jar or other container. Store in the fridge for about 3 wks. (I’ve had mine for that long, still good!) The jam can also be frozen for up to 3 months; thaw in the fridge before using.
