Chia seeds look like raspberry seeds but act like a natural thickener in this quick jam. They offer fiber and healthy Omega-3 fats while mango provides all of the natural sweetness you need, without any of the refined sugar that you don’t. Make a batch of this healthy easy, kid-approved recipe for Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes, Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes or use in a Chia Pudding Parfait.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup (48 grams) chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup diced mango (from 1 medium fresh mango or use frozen, thawed)

Chef Katie’s Tips:

 More Sweetness: If you want added sweetness, you can add date water (left from soaking dates in warm water), maple syrup, Stevia, or your preferred sweetener.

Play with Spices:  Bump up the flavor by adding a dash of spice.  Cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg would all add interesting flavor.  Vanilla or lemon extract would add brightness.
