Fresh Strawberry Chia Jam | Get Inspired Everyday!

Fresh Strawberry Chia Jam


  • 14 hulled fresh or frozen and thawed strawberries, 12 ounces
  • 23 Tablespoons maple syrup or raw honey, to taste according to your berries
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds


  1. Place the berries into a blender, and blend into a chunky purée, you should have 1 1/2 cups.
  2. Combine the blended berries with your choice of sweetener to taste, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Once the mixture boils, remove it from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Transfer the jam to a covered container, and refrigerate until cooled and thickened, about 3-4 hours. Berries really vary on their level of juiciness, so if your jam still isn’t thick enough, stir in more chia seeds and wait 1-2 hours for them to absorb the extra liquid.
  5. This jam keeps well for 7-10 days refrigerated. You can also make this without cooking the berries at all, simply combine all the ingredients and chill until thickened, however the raw version only lasts at most 4 days.


If 2 cups is way too much jam for you, you can easily cut this recipe in half or even in thirds, since there’s 1 1/2 cups of strawberry purée, 1/3 the recipe would be 1/2 cup purée. There’s 3 teaspoons in a Tablespoon, so for instance 1/3 of 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds would be 2 Teaspoons of chia for 1/3 the recipe.
