A delicious low sugar jam made with chia seeds, which provide important Omega 3 fats . A recipe brought to us by Joy Skipper.
25g soft dried dates, pitted and chopped
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
250g ripe strawberries, hulled and chopped
1 tbsp chia seeds
High protein yoghurt to serve
- Place the dates in a pan with the vinegar and 2 tbsp water and cook over a low heat, stirring to form a lumpy paste.
- Add the strawberries and continue to cook on a low heat for 4-5 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the chia seeds and mash them into the soft strawberries with a fork or masher.
- Spoon the mixture into a small jar, and once it has cooled, seal with a lid. The jam can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
- Delicious served rippled through Greek yoghurt.
