How To Make This Keto Jam
There is nothing easier than a chia jam recipe! In fact, chia seeds are amazing low-carb superseeds to create raw jam recipes.
All you have to do is combine any low-carb keto fruit with chia seeds and let the magic happen.
Well, if you are not using frozen fruits, you will have to add about 1/4 cup of water to the recipe.
But my lazy way to make keto jam is to use frozen berries!
Say hello to my frozen berry jam recipe that requires only 4 ingredients:
- Chia Seeds – white or black chia seeds, both have the same properties. If you wonder if chia seeds are keto-approved, the answer is yes. Chia seeds are mainly made of fat, and fiber and therefore contain a low amount of net carbs. They are keto-friendly seeds with only 2.7g net carbs per serving of 25g (about 2 tablespoons). Also, note that the whole recipe here uses 2 tablespoons, so you will never eat that much at once, keeping the carbs per serving of chia seeds very low.
- Frozen Raspberries – I love to use raspberries because they are the lowest carb fruits on a keto diet. Check my list of keto fruits if you want more information about which fruits you can eat on a keto diet.
- Lemon juice
- Sugar-free powdered sweetener – I recommend using powdered erythritol or monk fruit, or allulose. The most popular brands are Swerve and Lakanto. You can also use stevia drops but avoid crystal sugar-free sweeteners that will give a gritty texture to the jam. Check out my full review of keto-friendly sweeteners.
Making Keto Jelly
This is not only a keto jam recipe but also a healthy jam recipe for everyone!
In fact, chia seeds make this frozen berry jam nourishing, adding lots of fiber, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and powerful nutrients like magnesium and manganese to your breakfast.
And of course, it’s a sugar-free jam!
This is a raw chia jam recipe, and therefore it won’t store well at room temperature. Actually, this keto jam recipe must be stored in the fridge in a glass mason jar.
You can store the jam for 3 days in the fridge.
Frequently Asked Questions
A chia seed jam is slightly lighter in texture than a regular jam, with tiny pieces of seeds that feel like the one you are used to in store-bought raspberry jam.
Also, if you don’t like the pieces of seeds in chia seed jam, you can simply blend the whole recipe in a blender to smoothen it!
