Strawberry Jam Gone Clean

So strawberry season is upon us and I love, love, love them! I decided to whip up a batch of clean strawberry jam. Best part is it only takes a minute to make!

(Makes 2 cups)

Ingredients
2 cups of fresh,washed strawberries (stems removed)
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
3tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Directions
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend. (Mix as long as you like to get the consistency you desire).
Pour into a jar and put in fridge for 24 hours before using.

You can double/triple this recipe. After the 24 hours in the fridge you can even freeze this jam and enjoy it all year round!
