Vanilla Apricot Chia Jam (V)

Vanilla Apricot Chia Jam (V)

So, I love jam. I mean, I LOVE jam! I’m like Joey in friends. But I don’t like sugar. Well, I like sugar it’s just that it gets me really, really tired so I try to avoid it. However this really easy jam only includes 3 ingredients and no added sugar! Just make a small batch at a time since there are no preservatives in, but it will keep for a good few days in the fridge.

 

For a small jar you will need (the jar I used is 450 ml and is a bit more than half full):

  • 9 apricots
  • 2 ml vanilla extract (or more if you really like vanilla)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Peel and cut the apricots in halves. Remove the kernels and put the apricots in a sauce pan. On a low temperature let them simmer till there’s just a goo this will take anything from 15-30 minutes depending on the hardness of the fruit. If you like some fruit bits leave them, however I don’t so I used a potato masher to make a smooth goo. Add the chia seeds and vanilla extract and stir. Pour it it a jar and let cool. Stir after 15 minutes so the chia seeds get evenly distributed. Done!

Mango Frozen Yoghurt (V)

Mango Frozen Yoghurt (V)

I know it’s a bit dorky but I just love to say Fro Yo. FRO YO!

Okay, this is a super easy and super healthy and super good alternative for Ice Cream. It has no added sugar but the mango will make it sweet and delicious. I do believe you can use any fruit or berry for this, which might just make this the best

 

For 2 serving you will need:

  • 2 handfuls frozen diced mango
  • 2 dl yoghurt of choice (or plant based substitute)
  • Fruit or Berries for garnish (I used raspberries and blueberries)
  • Whipped cream (highly optional, or substitute with whipped coconut cream)

Just pour the mango and yoghurt in the blender and mix it smooth. Pour the mix in containers at put them in the freezer for about 2-3 hours. Stir every half hour (or every hour is fine if you forget, like I did). Take them out and serve with the fruit and\or berries. That’s about it! How easy?
