Super charge that old fashioned PB&J with this delicious Raspberry Chia Jam.
Chia seeds are considered one of nature’s “superfoods” for good reason. Such a tiny little seed and it packs a big punch. Being rich in antioxidants, it is great for your skin and for slowing down the signs of aging, It is super high in fiber which helps maintain insulin levels, keeps you satiated, and all that fiber helps keep you regular. They can even reduce inflammation, regulate cholesterol and lower blood pressure so consuming chia seeds is great for heart health. Chia seeds contain boron which is essential nutrient for bone health. Even more amazing, is that chia seeds are one of the top sources for plant-based protein.
I could go on and on, they are so jam packed with vital nutrients! Add to that the antioxidant power of raspberries and just a plain ol’ sandwich suddenly becomes quite the power lunch!
1 cup raspberries
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until you get the consistency you like.
- Store in a glass jar in the fridge. It may be runny at first but the chia seeds will thicken it up in no time.
