Description

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!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

Notes

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.
