Joy jam takes your everyday jam to the next level. With their colorful hues and plump shapes, juicy, antioxidant-rich berries are among nature’s most beguiling delights. Combined with superfood chia seeds, a splash of lemon juice, and any of our ORGANIC INDIA wellness supplements, the result is pure Joy. Indeed, any fruit melds beautifully with nutrient-packed chia seeds and a touch of our soothing herbal blends. Try all your favorites with this simple, revitalizing, wellness-boosting recipe.
Much like the berries we’ve paired here, chia seeds are the quintessential proof that good things come in small packages. Like magic, these tiny seeds can absorb up to twelve times their bodyweight, transforming syrupy cooked fruit into thick, luscious jams and creamy puddings. They’re also an amazing plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as protein, fiber, and more.
It only takes minutes of active time—and mere minutes of waiting—to make this lovely jam, delicious with yogurt, porridge, toast, even swirled in cakes and brownies! Enhance that goodness even further, with our ORGANIC INDIA herbal supplements. We love adding our ORGANIC INDIA Joy, which elevates mood, boosts energy and vitality, and reduces emotional tension and stress through a unique, potent blend of Bacopa, Gotu Kola, Shankpushpi, and Ashwagandha. Swap in your favorite supplements—a touch of Turmeric with peaches, or our Ceylon Cinnamon with apples. No matter what you choose, this versatile jam offers delectable taste and TLC. Enjoy!
Chia Berry Joy Jam
2 cups berries or any fruit of choice, chopped (stemmed, seeded or peeled depending on fruit)
1-2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons chia seeds (plus 1-2 Teaspoons extra if needed)
1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup, agave, or sweetener of choice (optional)
Prepare your fruit, cutting large fruits into smaller pieces. Berries can be left whole.
Transfer the fruit to a saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook until it begins to break down and becomes syrupy, about 5 minutes. Lightly mash with a potato masher or back of a spatula or large spoon.
Remove the pot from heat and stir in the lemon juice, chia seeds, and ORGANIC INDIA supplement of choice. Add sweetener to taste.
Let the jam stand at least 5 minutes to thicken. After five minutes, feel free to stir in more chia seeds 1 teaspoon at a time.
Allow the jam to cool to room temperature and transfer it to a jar or other storage container. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for one week. Note, the jam will continue to set and thicken somewhat in the fridge.
*For a zingy lift, include ¼ Teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger and add to the saucepan with the fruit.
