A healthy and simple no-sugar added mixed berry chia seed jam made with frozen mixed berries, chia seeds and vanilla. Vegan and gluten-free.
A couple of years ago I shared a recipe for easy strawberry chia seed jam and my readers went crazy. Tons of people have made the jam. The post got over 100 comments and the photos have been pinned thousands of times. Chia seed jam power!!
Given the recipe’s success, I decided to make a new version that highlights the versatility of the recipe. This time I’m using a mixture of berries and I’ve add a little vanilla extract for a hint of sweetness. Feel free to use the recipe as a guide and use whatever fruit you have on hand. I used berries but you can certainly experiment with other flavors!
Use this jam any way you use regular jam — slathered on toast, poured on overnight oats, as a topping for protein pancakes, for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or in dessert recipes that call for jam. I bet you’ll be surprised by all the different uses you’ll find for this mixed berry chia seed jam. It’s delish!

Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam
- 2 cups mixed berries, frozen or fresh
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- stevia, to taste (optional)
- If using frozen berries, let them thaw.
- Place berries and chia seeds into a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined.
- Taste and add stevia if necessary. I used 2-3 drops of liquid stevia, but I don’t think it would be necessary with super sweet berries. It just depends on how sweet you want your jam.
- Cover the mixture and place in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes to set. Enjoy!
- Keep leftovers in a covered container in the fridge. The jam should stay good for at least a week.

Yum this looks soo incredible. I love chia seed jam, so much!! I love that you added vanilla to this, too!! Great recipe.
Thank you Beth! 🙂
Wau! THAT’s a recipe I gotta try. I am definently going to eat some of the mixed berry chia seed jam with some healthy pancakes for breakfast!
Thanks, for at lovely and inspiring blog!
Hi! Great recipe! Quick question, what is the serving size of the recipe? Is it a tablespoon or two?
I love this recipe! Could I use maple syrup instead of the stevia?
I love this jam. We don’t eat jam all the time so being able to make small quantities is just great. Plus this means I get variety every time I want jam and no waste because the jam expired.
I’m so glad this recipe is a hit, Chantal! Thanks for coming back to leave a review. I appreciate it so much!

Aw congratulations on the arrival of your grandson, Jennifer. I am so sorry to hear about his medical battles, I hope for a quick recovery. I am happy that you have found the chia pudding recipes helpful, I also have some lactation cookies, lactation brownies and a smoothie available on the blog that might also be helpful as well.
