Chia Berry Fruit Spread

.

This is a very simple substitute for sugar laden spreads. Its easy to make and very healthy. If you want it sweeter, just add a pinch or two of stevia.

Ingredients

300 grams of fresh frozen mixed berries (about 10 ounces)

1 and a half  Tablespoons of chia seeds Рblack or white.

a little stevia if required.

Method

Thaw the fruit and push the fruit and juice through a seive. This takes out most of the seeds and the harder skins of the berries

Alternatively put the fruit and juice through a blender until its smooth.

I prefer to use a seive which leaves me with 1 to 2 teaspoons of skin and seed left over.

Stir in 1 and a half Tablespoons of chia seeds and leave to thicken for 10 to 12 minutes.

Add stevia if deserired.

If you would like this spread a little thicker, add more chia seeds, one teaspoon at a time.
