2 Ingredient Raw Vegan Cherry Chia Jam

AuthorGypsyCategory, DifficultyBeginner

This chia jam is such an easy recipe to make. Keep a jar in your fridge. Perfect over desserts or raw cakes. Swirled into banana ice-cream. Or just as is. The chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Full of fibre, calcium, iron and zinc. Cherries contain vitamin A, calcium, protein and iron. So, this jam is a health kick of note.

Put the cherries and their thawed out juice in a blender. Add the apple juice and pulse a few times until it is mixed well, but still looks a little chunky. I should have a jam consistency. If you want it smoother, you can blend it up a little more.

Put the cherries and apple juice mixture in a bowl. Add the chia seeds and mix well with a spoon. For a sweeter jam, you can add two tablespoons of maple syrup. Let it stand for an hour or three, to thicken up. The chia seeds gives off a lovely gel that will allow the jam to thicken. Spoon the cherry chia jam in a glass container and store in the fridge. Enjoy it on scones, swirl it into banana ice-cream, or in your cereal or even in your smoothies. It even tastes great on its own. Enjoy!
