  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1/2 cup of monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh orange zest
  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice


  1. Combine Ingredients in Saucepan: Mix powdered monk fruit sweetener and water in a saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium heat, add fresh orange zest, and stir until the sweetener dissolves completely. Using powdered monk fruit helps prevent uneven coagulation when refrigerated.
  2. Add Strawberries and Chia Seeds: Once sweetener is dissolved, add fresh strawberries and prepared chia seeds. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Mash Cooked Ingredients: Remove the saucepan from heat and mash the ingredients with a utensil to your desired consistency.
  4. Store the Jam: Transfer the cooled jam to a jar or airtight container and refrigerate. The jam will continue to thicken as it cools.
