This Homemade Jam is super simple to make and tastes so amazing. On top of it, it’s loaded in protein and Omega 3’s
1 cup Strawberries- I used frozen as it’s November
1 c Blueberries- I used frozen as it’s November
1/4 c chia seeds
1 scoop Strawberry About Time whey protein Isolate
1 t vanilla extract- pure
1 stevia packet
2 dashes of salt
In a small sauce pot place the frozen berries. Over medium-low heat cook the berries until soft enough to mash. Once heated enough remove from the heat. (the berries should not be piping hot) Using a potato masher (or a fork) mash the berries to a semi rough state. (some chunks but mostly mashed).
Add the vanilla and stevia, mix. Add the whey isolate and stir well. Add the chia seeds until incorporated. Pour mixture into a mason jar or what ever you want to store the jam in. Let sit in the refrigerator until the jam sets up. I let mine sit 24 hrs but it was one well in advance.
TIP*- you can add more stevia if you want it sweeter. You can use any kind of berries, oranges, apples etc. Fruits with skin, I would peel first then dice. (make sure they are de-seeded too)
TIP* Try different extracts or flavors of proteins or added spices to make different flavor versions
