Acai Berry Jam Super Food by GreenChef Julie Morris

This jam acts just like boysenberry preserves, yet is dense with nutrition, low in sugar, full of whole superfoods, and completely unprocessed. Featuring two all-star superfoods – acai and chia – it’s a fantastic way to sneak extra antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vital micronutrients into any diet. Acai’s soft berry flavor results in a mild-tasting jam, which is as versatile as it is delicious. For a stronger fruity taste, mix in ¼ cup muddled fresh berries (like strawberries or blackberries) before serving. Use on bread, with muffins, on top of desserts, or enjoy a spoonful solo with zero guilt!

(recipe after the jump)

For the Jam

2 Tbsp chia seeds

½ cup apple juice (fresh is best)

2 Tbsp acai powder

2 Tbsp maple syrup

1 Tbsp lemon juice

stevia (optional)

Instructions: Mix together the chia seeds with the apple juice in a small bowl or glass. Allow to sit for 20 – 30 minutes, stirring once. After the chia has gelatinized, mix in the acai powder, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Add in a touch of stevia for additional sweetness, if desired. For best results, allow mixture to set for 30 minutes before serving. Will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
