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.
300 grams of fresh frozen mixed berries (about 10 ounces)
1 and a half Tablespoons of chia seeds – black or white.
a little stevia if required.
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.
Here is a photo of the finished spread
Try it on some chia pan bread with whipped cream or yogurt.
