  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1-3 tablespoons honey, maple syrup or monk fruit (if needed)


  • Place strawberries in a saucepan over a medium heat.  Cook until the strawberries begin to break down and the mixture is bubbly.  The strawberries will become loose and liquidy, about 10 minutes.
  • Mash the fruit with a potato masher or the back of a spatula.  You can make this as smooth or chunky as you’d like.  It all depends on how you like your jam.
  • Stir in the chia seeds and lemon juice.  Taste the jam and then decide if you want to add sweetener.  Start with one tablespoon, if desired and adjust from there.
  • The jam will continue to thicken as it cools.  Once it has cooled, transfer into an airtight jar and store in the fridge for 1-3 weeks or up to three months in the freezer.
