Raspberry Chia Jam Spread
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 a few simple ingredients- raspberries, lemon juice, sweetener (optional) and chia seeds. It also takes just 10 minutes to make.
Use it as a spread on Low Carb Seed Loaf or the Healthy Low Carb Bread Recipe, or try it as a filling in a low carb cake. I love to have a couple of scoops of it on top of a bowl of Greek yogurt along with a couple of tablespoons of nuts and seeds, or Healthy Low Carb Muesli.It’s a wonderfully healthy and delicious way to start the day, or to serve as a dessert or snack.
Perfect for everyday or for a special occasion. Probably my favorite way to use this jam is to make Low Carb Scones, and indulge in Devonshire tea. Devonshire tea is a British tradition where scones are served topped with a dollop of jam and cream. It is also traditionally served with a cup of tea. If you haven’t indulged in a Devonshire tea, now might be the time to try it.
FREE FROM PRESERVATIVES
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. Make sure you taste the jam before adding any additional sweetener to the recipe, as berries have a lot of natural sugars in them. You may find it is sweet enough.
Serve this delicious Raspberry Chia Jam Spread 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 Low Carb Muesli and yogurt for breakfast or a snack. This also tastes lovely served with some whipped cream on top of Chocolate Chia Mousse Pudding. Use 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. You can also make Sugar Free Strawberry Chia Jam, which is a simple variation of this fabulous recipe.
