  • 12 ounce bag frozen raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. In a medium saucepan, cook berries on medium heat for about 10 minutes, until fruit begins to break down. Mash with a spoon or potato masher to help break the fruit into smaller pieces.
  2. Stir in chia seeds and the lemon juice.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool until it starts to thicken.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Helpful hints

  1. You may substitute various other fruit for the raspberries, such as blueberries, strawberries, peaches or pineapple.
  2. Use as you would any jam on bread, crackers or in oatmeal.
  3. If you do prefer more sweetness, add 1 tablespoon honey, natural maple syrup or agave syrup. This is option and will add more sugar to the recipe.
  4. This jam can be refrigerated for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
  5. Less potassium and phosphorus is absorbed in the body in plant based foods, like seeds and fruit.
