Bloody Berry chia jam
In the evenings my fav dessert is some non-dairy yogurt, which I top with nuts and a touch of sweetness (it is difficult to find in Paris a coconut-based one, which I looove, so one has to go with soy – the soy-almond and soy-coconut combinations from Provamel are my favourites, available in Bio c’ Bon). For a while my combo for the topping was hazelnuts and honey (it is such a yum combination – ask any crêpe lover). But if you are really living the vegan lifestile to the point of not using honey (which I am trying to do) and you would like something even less sweet (which I am also trying to do), having this jam is great. Or, simply, eat it with crackers! It’s full of anti-oxidants, from the red berries, and protein, from the chia.
So, for a full jar, you will need:
- 1,5 cup frozen red berries (or fresh, if you like)
- 1,5 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
Place it all in a kitchen blender, and blend till the fruits are well chopped and mixed with the rest.
Et voilà! Store in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge up to a couple of weeks. Or even freeze it!
