No cook, fresh fruit jam. I've never liked how much sugar is added to the typical fruit jams you get from the store. I think its a shame to have to cook fruit and lose some of the nutrition. I do like that taste of the cooked fruit but there is nothing as fresh and light tasting as this quick to prep jam recipe.

Prepping your Fruit:

  1. How smooth or chunky you want your jam is completely up to you. I pulverized mine in a blender, which took about 2 seconds. You could crush your fruit in a ziplock or even just break up your fruit into smaller pieces using your hands.
  2. *
  3. Add water and let your fruit rehydrate.


  1. I didn't need to use any sweetener with my batch. You may choose to add a bit of sugar, honey, agave, or maple syrup to add some sweetness as some fruits are more tart than others.
  2. *
  3. A splash of lemon juice would be nice to brighten the flavor, but not necessary. If you happened to have our lemonade powder that would work as well.

Making the Jam:

  1. Stir in the Chia Seeds.
  2. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to allow chia seeds to develop their own healthy gelatin.
