  • 1 pint fresh strawberries note 1
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon squeeze lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds


  • Rinse your strawberries and begin to remove stems from berries
  • Then proceed to chop your strawberries in small pieces. Grab a medium size pot and add your chopped berries over medium high heat. 
  • Stir your chopped strawberries until liquid from the berries start to release. 
  • Once the strawberries begin to breakdown, grab your potato masher to break down any remaining large pieces. NOTE: You can also use an immersion blender for this for a smoother jam. 
  • Next add your agave nectar, lime juice, and chia seeds. Stir until your jam starts to thicken over medium low heat.
  • Remove from heat and transfer your jam into a clean sterile mason jar. Make sure the lid close tightly.
  • Allow it to cool at room temperature for an 1 hour. While it sits, your jam will thicken. 
  • Use immediately in homemade vegan biscuits, toast, pancakes, or waffles. (Or whatever else you would normally use jam on).
  • If not using immediately store in the refrigerator for 5 - 7 days or in the freezer for 2 months. 



  1. STRAWBERRIES: To make these with frozen strawberries add directly to a pot over medium high heat until they start to soften and the liquid is released. Then proceed with the recipes as stated. 
  2. ADDITIONS AND SUBSITUTIONS: This recipe works with all types of berries. When using blueberries, raspberries or blackberries, there is no need to chopped them as they are already small.
