Sweet Cherry Chia Jam

This completely guilt-free, 5-minutes-to-make, chia jam recipe is packed with healthful antioxidants and plant-derived omega 3’s. You can use any frozen berry for this recipe, but we went for cherries for their natural sweetness. Keep in the fridge for up to a week and enjoy on top of your favourite breakfast. We love it with almond butter on toast, yum!



2 Cups Frozen Sweet Cherries (pitted)

2 TBSP Chia Seeds

½ Lemon (juice only)

1 TBSP Maple Syrup (optional, add more or less to taste)




  1. Place a saucepan over a medium to low heat and add the cherries. Allow the cherries to thaw and heat through for a few minutes.
  2. Once warmed and bubbling a little, use a potato masher to squash the cherries and release their juice. You can create a smoother or chunkier consistency depending on what you prefer. 
  3. Add the chia seeds and lemon juice and then quite immediately take the saucepan off of the heat. 
  4. Stir everything through and then let it sit for 5 minutes, giving time for the chis seeds to absorb the moisture and thicken up. 
  5. Transfer into a jar or airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to a week. 
  6. Enjoy!
