Raspberry Chia Jam Spread

This delicious Raspberry Chia Jam Spread recipe is low carb and sugar free and tastes absolutely amazing. It is made from just 3 simple ingredients- raspberries, lemon juice and chia seeds, and it takes only takes 10 minutes to prepare. Use it as a spread on low carb Seed Loaf or the Low Carb Bread Recipe, or try it as a filling in a low carb cake. Perfect for everyday or for a special occasion.

I don’t add any sweetener to my berries in this recipe but I have given you the option of using it if you wish to. Make sure you taste your jam before you add any sweetener, as berries have a lot of natural sugars in them and you may find it is sweet enough. Note that you can also use your sweetener of choice in this recipe.

This recipe is ideal for anyone generally trying to reduce the preservatives, carbs and sugar in their life. It’s a great recipe for diabetics, celiacs, those with gluten intolerance, and for anyone following a low carb, keto or LCHF way of eating. There’s no need to feel guilty about having jam when it is as healthy as this. Pure food, unadulterated at it’s best.

Try using this delicious Raspberry Chia Jam Spread recipe for toppings or to flavor foods such as desserts, cakes, yogurt and cheesecakes. Try some topped on a low carb chocolate mousse for a delicious healthy dessert. Spoon it over your muesli and yogurt for breakfast or a snack. This also tastes lovely served with some whipped cream on top of Chocolate Chia Mousse Pudding. You could also use this in a smoothie for a delicious alternative.

This wonderful recipe is so quick and easy to make and once you’ve tried it, you won’t need or want to buy sugar laden, overly processed jam ever again.

Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Note that if you use fresh raspberries you may need to add a tablespoon of water to the recipe prior to cooking to add a bit of additional liquid. For the strawberry version of this jam, check out Sugar Free Strawberry Chia Jam Spread or simply use hulled chopped strawberries in place of the raspberries in this recipe. Chop them into smaller pieces so they cook more quickly as srawberries are denser than raspberries. Add a tablespoon of water to the strawberries before heating. Strawberries need to be cooked for about 10 minutes to get them soft. Use the same quantities as per the recipe above.
