My first successful Healtheries Black Chia Seed recipe is a keeper. I really enjoyed the taste of the little magic jam and will keep experimenting with different fruits. I will be mainly using it on my porridge, pancakes or added to yoghurt. I really doubted that this would work, but it did and I like it. The original recipe is on this rathe healthy blog from Balanced Platter. I added a good squirt of lemon, I love lemon and a bit of tartness cutting through sweet.
This recipe really is easy – chop, blend, stir and refrigerate ( oh my I sound like Ramsay). If you don’t believe me, try it. I think it is something to do with the texture of the Chia seeds and the reaction they have to liquid. The jam does have the consistency of a home made jam without the extreme sweetness.
