As we are now in spring, it is time to switch up my fridge essentials to make sure I can throw together super tasty treats with minimal fuss!
As you all know, a House of Lotz staple breakfast is porridge. Whether it is made fresh that morning or made in an over night oat style, it is my go to week day breakfast.
As the weather is getting warmer, it is now time to switch out my winter flavours for something a bit fresher and lighter. Sorry apple pie oats, we will see you again in September!
As you know I am sucker for a bit of feed prep and anything I can rustle up in a pinch. There is no way that I have time to make jam on a weekly/monthly basis, so I had a play in the kitchen and came up with this super quick “Jam” recipe.
You will need:
Frozen berries of your choice (today I have raspberries)
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Maple Syrup
Grab a small bowl and fill it with your frozen fruit.
Let this fruit defrost naturally. Do not defrost this in the microwave! I have tried and it makes the texture very strange.
Once your fruit is defrosted, lightly crush it with the back of a fork.
Stir in your chia seeds and maple syrup.
Leave your little jam mixture at room temperature over night. This helps the chia seeds soak up all the liquid and create a gummy texture.
After this you can pop it in the fridge and use as needed. This should last about 4-5 days depending on how quickly you use it and how cold your fridge is.
As if by magic you will have a jammy textured bowl of goodness that you can use on toast, yoghurt, porridge or just on a spoon!
This recipe can be used for pretty much any fruit you fancy, just make sure it has been frozen so the water seeps out.
Enjoy your jam everyone xXx have a great weekend xXx
