There’s something warm, comforting, and familiar about fresh, homemade jam. Especially in comparison to store-bought varieties, which are typically loaded with sugar. Created by Healthy Luxe, this superfood jam is made from a delicious base of raspberries and Amazonia Acai Pure. Hand harvested from wild growing acai palms in the Amazon rainforest, our Certified Organic Acai Pure has 7 x the antioxidants of blueberries and is a great source of Omegas 3,6 & 9.
She’s also added lemon juice for tartness, honey/maple syrup for sweetness, vanilla extract for depth of flavour and chia seeds to help the jam thicken. Chia seeds are excellent source of antioxidants, fibre, iron and calcium. In fact, there's about 10g of fibre in 2 tablespoons of chia seeds – making a significant contribution to the 25–30g Australians are recommended to consume daily. They're also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that helps protect your heart.
If you’re not a fan of raspberries, you can try our pure Acai Chia Jam recipe. Both are delicious spread over toast, fresh-baked banana bread, or even pancakes! If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!
