Yesterday we told you all about the health benefits of adding Acai Berries to your diet and today we have a great berry jam recipe that is easy to make and is the perfect addition to your morning granola or the kids PB&J sandwiches. You also get the added nutrtional bonus of chia seeds as well!!
Acai Berry Jam
3 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 cup organic apple juice
1 cup organic blueberries
3 tablespoons acai powder
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1-3 tablespoons maple syrup (to taste)- I used Agave Nectar and it turned out great!
Soak chia seeds in apple juice until the juice is absorbed and the mixture becomes gelatinous. Blend blueberries in the blender until almost smooth. Add blended blueberries to the chia seed mixture along with remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine. You can enjoy this jam right away or refrigerate to use later. It will keep for about a week.
