Once you try my homemade strawberry chia jam, you'll never go back to store-bought jam again. For one, this recipe doesn't contain any refined sugars. And two, it's packed with chia seeds, which are a superfood, and they are packed with lots of fiber!


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Add the strawberries to a small saucepan over medium-low heat, mashing them with the back of a fork or to break them down. If you are using frozen strawberries, keep the heat on low and be patient as they defrost, so that you can break them down.
  • Cook and stir until the strawberries are broken down completely, then add the coconut sugar, chia seeds, and lemon juice; this will take about 10 minutes or so.
  • Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla extract, and let cool to allow the jam to thicken, about 5-10 more minutes.
  • Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to one week.


You can also make this jam with other fruits, including raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Fresh or frozen will work.
