So....after I went to my favorite shoe store to buy inserts for my running shoes for LA Full (I don't wear inserts all the time, but I feel that having that extra support with the LOOOOOONG miles will be beneficial for me and my muscles) - I headed over to the local Trader Joe's.
I bought a small bag of frozen mixed berries. Let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
Here is the recipe I followed:
|Mixed Berries and Chia Seeds|
2 cups of mixed fruit. It just so happens that the bag of fruit was 2 cups. I dumped the entire contents (including the juice) into the blender (we just bought a Ninja - and LOVE it!).
Blend until smooth
|Berries after blending|
Taste. If you feel you need a little extra sweet - add your sweetener of choice.
I poured it into a neat-o glass container we bought at the thrift store for 10cents. Just the right size. Put in refrigerator & chill.
|Jam in the Jar!|
KID TESTED and APPROVED!
COST: Less than $3 for a good sized container. Have you seen how much jam is in the grocery store AND it's packed with junk and preservatives. By making your own jam, you save $$$ and it's better for you!
What interesting recipes have you made with chia seeds?
