RECIPE: Strawberry and chia seed jam
Experimenting with our menu is a regular occurrence at The Skinny Kitchen HQ and we are currently working on our Spring/Summer menu. During our testing for various porridge and protein pancake toppings we came up with this strawberry and chia seed jam and had to share it with you!
It was very simple to make, tastes amazing and is great healthy topping alternative for cakes, in porridge or on toast. The chia seeds give it the thick, sticky consistency it needs and although there are only a few ingredients they are packed with health benefits
Chia seeds are full of omega 3 and 6, high in protein, antioxidants and fibre.
Strawberries are so tasty so you might be surprised to know they are full of health benefits too. They are packed with vitamin C, are rumoured to prevent heart disease and reduce cholesterol.
