Ingredients for the Raspberry Chia Jam
To make a fantastic paleo chia jam, you’ll need a few simple ingredients. I like to call this instant keto jam because it’s ready within minutes and it’s sugar-free because we don’t use sugar to help it thicken and get that perfect jam texture.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen berries – I use raspberries because they are very low in carbs and taste great, but you can use any of your favorite berries.
- 2-3 tablespoons chia seeds – These nutrient-packed seed act like a thickener in this recipe transforming the fruits into jam almost instantly.
- 2-3 tablespoons Erythritol – Use more or less sweetener depending on how sweet you’d like the jam to be.
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
My favorite ratio of berries to chia seeds is two cups fresh or frozen fruits to 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds. Sometimes the fruits are fresh and juicy and for a thicker jam, you have to add more chia seeds.
