Instant Pot Chia Berry Fruit Compote

Two months ago, we were in the middle of a huge interstate move. The movers came to take our things a week prior to us actually flying out, so the ability to cook that week was almost non-existent. I needed some quick and easy foods for our young toddler to eat during this time, so I bought her a pack of the fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts.

Big mistake.

She got hooked on them, and it was all she wanted to eat for the next month.

When we finally arrived at our new home and my Instant Pot was released back into my possession, I started making my own fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt cups for her to snack on. This berry sauce was a huge success and now my toddler won’t even touch store-bought yogurt cups (hallelujah)!

Now my entire family is hooked on this sauce and I find myself making it weekly. My husband slathers it on dinner rolls and pancakes.

Bon Appétit!

Berry Fruit Sauce with Chia Seeds

Instant Pot Chia Berry Fruit Sauce

  • Author: Amelia Jane
  • Prep Time: 2 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 minute
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


This berry chia fruit sauce is free of refined sugar and is packed with fiber. It tastes great with pancakes, yogurt, cheesecake, biscuits, toast, ice cream, and more!



  • 2 cups berriesfresh or frozen (I use a 50/50 mixture of blueberries & strawberries)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup (or a granulated sweetener of your choice for Keto)
  • 2 tsp. lemon or orange juice (you can also use 1/8 tsp. citric acid)
  • 4 Tbspchia seeds


  1. Place all ingredients into the Instant Pot, with the chia seeds going in last.
  2. If using fresh fruit, let the mixture sit for 10-20 minutes to allow the fruit to release some liquid.
  3. Close the lid and set to sealing position. Cook on manual high pressure for 1 minute.
  4. When finished, let pressure release naturally for 15 minutes, then quick release if necessary.
  5. Stir the mixture until the chia is well-combined and mixture starts to thicken. (The sauce will thicken more as it cools.)
  6. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.


For a thick, jam-like sauce, let cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Any kind of berries or chopped fruit will work for this recipe, so feel free to use what you like. Cherries, strawberries, and blueberries are always my go-to’s for this recipe.
