Healthy Summer Fruit Chia Seed Jam
The cold air starts to tickle my face day by day and I pulled out my wintery tops. Yup, winter is coming. And every time I think about autumn or winter I imagine myself with comfort food in my hand like toast with berry jam and a cup of herbal tea whilst watching snow through my window. Khm, let’s forget this snowy part because it’s just not going to happen in London. 🙂
As we all know commercial jams are full of refined sugar, without a piece of real fruit in it (not all of them but most of) so I’ve decided to make my own at home, much healthier and yummier than those from the shop. I absolutely adore berry jams so the berry jam it was! I also love rosehip but not this time, people. Not this time.
Enough about my obsession with jams and berries. I’ll share with you some nutrition facts, as always, and the recipe down below.
Summer fruit (raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants)
- Berries – Vitamin C, antioxidants, fibre AND also a good vegetarian source of Omega 3.
- Raspberries- vitamin C, manganese, B vitamins 1–3, folic acid, magnesium, copper and iron.
- Blackberries -high levels of dietary fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid and manganese.
- Redcurrants-vitamin C, fibre, potassium, magnesium
- Blackcurrants – Vitamin C, vitamin B 1 and 5-6, vitamin E and A
- Omega 3 Fatty acids
- Vitamin C
- No refined sugar (home-made version)
Berries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, antioxidants, fibre
So, who wouldn’t like to wake up and have breakfast packed with all these nutrients? Don’t forget we’re talking about fruit jam over here 🙂 And the most important thing is your home-made jam will be done in 35 minutes. (5 min prep and 30min to sit). Amazing, isn’t it?
