Makes:

2 servings.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dark cherries fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or to taste
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or to taste
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

In a saucepot, heat the cherries and strawberries until they start to bubble and get syrupy. Once super soft, mash them with a potato masher until the mixture is jammy, loose, and with some visible little bits of fruit in it.

Step 2

Add in the lemon juice and maple syrup, and taste. Adjust the lemon and maple syrup depending on the sweetness of your fruit.

Step 3

Take the mixture off of the heat, transfer it to a container and add in the chia seeds. Allow the mixture to set for at least 20 minutes, or until it thickens up. Enjoy immediately, or pack away in the fridge to use throughout the week.
