Berry Mango Chia Jam

Berry Mango Chia Jam is a low-sugar substitute for traditional jams and jellies.

If you’ve been around the blog for long enough, you may notice I use chia seeds from time to time to create very lightly sweetened puddings.

How to Make Chia Jam

This time, I paired chia seeds with fresh fruit to make something that’s a jam-like consistency with no added sugar. Feel free to switch up the berries with other fruit! The sky is the limit.

All you have to do is cook the fresh fruit down gently over medium heat until it’s softened. Then, you stir in the chia seeds and let them soak up the liquid. Chia seeds have this cool property of absorbing liquid and becoming thick and jelly-like.

How Long Does Chia Jam Last in the Refrigerator?

This Berry Mango Chia Jam will last for up to a week in the refrigerator. You can use it as a topping for yogurt or on gluten-free crackers or bread.

This fruity Berry Mango Chia Jam is chock full of fresh fruit and has no extra added sugar! Paleo-friendly!



  • 1/2 cup mango diced
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup strawberries chopped
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds


  1. Add the fruit to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until it has softened, about 10 minutes.

  2. Slowly stir in the chia seeds until they’re evenly incorporated. The “jam” will continue to thicken as the seeds absorb moisture.
  3. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. The jam will be thickened in 1-2 hours.

  1. I LOVE jam and will definitely try this….but what do you put it on?? Maybe I think too narrowly about muffins and jam or toast and jam or ice cream and jam…..none of which is really approved on paleo, LOL!

  2. I made this yesterday when I was batch cooking. Just delicious.
    As it goes, I was also roasting some pork, with salt and pepper crackling (to die for) and I didn’t have any clean apple sauce in to go with, so I used a little jam – was very nice indeed and set the flavour off very well. Of course I have pork left over, so I feel both may get used again this week……

    Thanks Steph!

  3. yay jam! And of course you should eat it with pork! In Scandinavian cooking we use berries and fruit liberally with meat – reindeer and lingonberry jam is a flavour bomb and something I have missed, but not much longer. I didn’t think to use chia as a thickener – duh! Will pin for future use, thanks!
