Easy No-Cook Low Carb Jam

Easy No-Cook Low Carb Jam

I told you earlier, here and on Instagram, that our family discovered the world of Low-Carb or Keto and, more importantly, we set this challenge to give up sugar completely during this period (I hope this lasts as long as possible!). I found this sugar-free jam recipe when we were starting to miss the fresh flavourful fruit. Because we had raspberries, blueberries and blackberries which I'd frozen in the summer (recipe here!), I didn't hesitate and made it quickly. It's absolutely wonderful and I recommend this sugar-free jam recipe for children or people with diabetes in the first place, but it's ok for anyone who wants to eat healthy. You also have uncooked fruits here, which preserve their vitamins, aroma, color, but also the wonderful chia seeds!

I normally use natural sweeteners with low glycemic index, which don't have the harmful effects of sugar - stevia (less, because we don't like its taste), xylitol, erythritol or tagatosis. Adjust the amount according to taste and, if you are lucky to have sweeter fruits, you can completely avoid any sweetener.

Ingredients

Fruits
120 g
fresh or frozen - whichever you like. If you are on low-carb, rather use raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, sour cherries etc.
Natural sweeteners
2 tbsp
whichever you like and use - I put tagatose now, but it also works with xylitol, erithritol, stevia etc.
Chia seeds
2 tbsp

Step by step

1

Because this jam is kept in the fridge for no more than 4-5 days, you should only make the necessary (small) amount. The best way to do this is to stock up fruit in the freezer during the season and prepare the fresh jam whenever you feel like it.

Here, I had 120 grams of raspberries. Let thaw for 2-3 hours.

2

Then crush well with a fork.

If you have fresh fruit, skip the thawing step, of course.

3

Add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds.

4

Add any natural sweetener to taste, if the fruit is sweet you can omit it.

5

Mix well and notice that we have a slightly runny mixture.

Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Depending on the quality of the chia seeds, they will swell and the jam will get thicker.

6

That's how it should be when it's ready, thicker and holding its shape well.

7

Store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days and, when needed, make another batch from any of your favorite fruits, low-carb or not.

It's wonderful with yogurt, on some cheese dumplings or low-carb waffles, with cottage cheese and, of course, pancakes!

Enjoy!
