BLUEBERRY ACAI CHIA JAM

BLUEBERRY ACAI CHIA JAM

 

Chia Jams are super simple and fun to make. Cooking tends to bring out the flavor a bit more, but the fruit can be cooked or raw. 

We've chosen Acai powder in this recipe because it pairs perfectly with berries and has a ton of incredible benefits. Acai is an excellent source of antioxidants, dietary fiber, amino acids, healthy fats, manganese, and Vitamin A. 
Acai has been shown to: 

  • Improve overall wellness & energy 
  • Contribute to healthy skin
  • Support weight loss + appetite control 
  • Aid in digestion
  • Improve cognitive function
  • Provide anti-aging benefits
  • Stimulate the immune system

Setting the chia seeds aside, gently pulse all ingredients until you've achieved desired consistency. Stir in Chia Seeds or gently pulse once or twice to incorporate. Transfer to a jar and allow to set. Will keep for one week.
