two cups with chia jam and coconut yogrt

I’ve been obsessed with using pomegranates in chia jam lately! Not only is this beautiful fruit sweet and refreshing, it’s loaded with amazing health benefits; anti-inflammatory properties, energy boosters, bad cholesterol combaters, heart protectors …to name a few.

And talk about those chia seads! Chia seeds have a number of health benefits.

Chia seed health benefits include…

  • high in fiber – supports health of your digestive system
  • high in protein – help stabilize blood sugar levels
  • high in Omega 3 – helps reduce the risk of developing heart disease and improve brain/cognitive function
  • source of good cards – helping boost energy
  • contain essential amino acids – supporting muscle repair and growth

Have you tried making chia jam before? it’s so easy and a perfect additional to any yogurt or oatmeal. In today’s post I share how to make this tasty and ever-so-simple chia jam with a pomegranate twist .

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp whole or ground chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp pure pomegranate juice
  • Pinch fine sea salt 1/8 of a tsp
  • 1/4 tsp raw honey or coconut nectar

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or glass jar.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes. The mixture will form a jam like consistency as it rests.
  • Use right away or store in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Notes

  • This recipe also works really well with concentrated blueberry juice.
  • Double or triple the recipe and store in the fridge for easy access throughout the week.
  • Add 1/4 tsp of flax to amp up the fibre content even more.
  • Consume chi seeds and/or jams with a good quality fat source like yogurt to support digestion rate. Consuming chia seeds/jams on their own may lead to a quick bathroom visit (if you know what I mean).

I love layering this jam with coconut yogurt, rolled oat granola, and fresh pomegranate seeds – It’s the perfect sweet yet healthy touch to any breakfast or snack bowl.

Give it a try and let me know how you love to use it!

Helping you put wellness 1st,

Fay
