Sweets are our enemy but who doesn’t like them?
When I have a sweet carving I can make my own healthy sweet treat. Jams are great to combine with pancakes, porridge, cooked rice or gluten-free pasta. You can use that type of meal around your training/ activity to refill your energy levels or help your body during recovery time. It all depends on individually however you can treat it like an option.
The best option is to use seasonal fruits. When it is hard to get them during the winter, you can choose a frozen option. You can freeze some fruits on your own during the season time or you can simply buy ready frozen fruits packages.
- 500 g defrosted raspberries
- 6- 10 tbs xylitol , honey , coconut sugar or regular sugar
- 5 tbs linseed
- 5 tbs chia seed
- 5 spoons water
Preheat a saucepan with water, throw in the raspberries. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Throw in xylitol, linseed and chia seed. Stir in and cook for another 5 minutes. Pour into jar. Close and store in the fridge when it cools down. You can keep it for about 3 weeks in the fridge. Use the pasteurization method to store over the winter.
