Easy strawberry chia seed jam to made on the stovetop with frozen fruit and chia seeds and naturally sweetened with lime and maple syrup.


  • 45 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Juice from 1 lime, squeezed 
  • 24 tbsp filtered water 
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup chia seeds


  1. In a saucepan, add the strawberries, lime juice, and filtered water. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the berries are fully broken down. About halfway through the simmering time, begin to break down the berries by smashing them with a fork into a chunky, uniform texture.
  2. Once the berries are broken down, stir in the maple syrup and chia seeds and stir until combined, about 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.
  3. Let the skillet sit for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until the chia seeds thicken the jam.
  4. Transfer the jam into a canning jar and refrigerate; the texture will set even further when chilled. Store jam in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
