Triple Berry Jam (no cook!)
6 T. chia seeds (these will act as the gelling agent in the jam, AND they're a major super food!) You'll probably only find this at a health food store.
1/2 c. pure apple juice (no sugar added)
1 T. fresh squeezed lime juice
-Mix together and let set for about 10 mins.
-In a separate bowl combine:
3 c. thawed triple berry mix (and combination of unsweetened berries will work)...keep the juice with them, don't drain it. Mash with a potato masher.
5 T. Acai Berry powder (another super food. You'll have to go to a health food store to get this.)
6 T. agave
-Mix together, and once the Chia and juice mixture has started to gel together, combine.
-Let it set up in the fridge for about 30 mins before serving!
-This makes a good amount of jam, and it's a good thing...your kids will eat it up like candy!
-Note: this isn't a super sweet jam...so if you're kids are used to the really sweet jams and jellies, you could add more agave!
