Homemade Sugar Free Raspberry Jam
The possibilities are endless with this healthy, homemade raspberry jam recipe!
It’s sugar free, and sweetened with a healthy monk fruit sweetener.
The thickening happens by adding chia seeds, which absorb the water. Because the raspberries already have seeds, no one will even see these little gems in there! They add fiber, omega 3s, and protein, making your jam a nutritional superstar.
Use this on top of your toast, add it to muffins, top your waffles, sweeten yogurt with it, or even shake it up with a little vinegar and oil to make a quick raspberry vinaigrette. However you choose to use it, you’ll end up making this again and again!
What You’ll Need
- Frozen raspberries (fresh work too!)
- Monk Fruit Sweetener (I love this brand – it tastes like sugar and has clean ingredients!)
- Chia Seeds
That’s all! This recipe is designed to really let the fruit shine through!
