There’s something about homemade jams and spreads that are just so satisfying. Maybe some of this satisfaction comes from the DIY aspect, but for us it comes from knowing exactly what we’re eating, how it was made and where it’s coming. Most store bought jams and spreads are packed with preservatives and loaded with added sugars, often tricking us into thinking that we’re doing ourselves a favour by spreading some fruit on our toast. Next time you’re meal prepping, try adding our superfood spread to the list. We made ours using Jujube fruit, also known as red dates, dried apricot, white mulberries and chia seeds. Not only is it made from real, whole organic fruit, but it doesn’t contain any added sugar! Most store bought spreads are also thickened with pectin. We decided to use our organic chia seeds in place of this to soak up some of the excess liquid and make our superfood spread thick and packed with fibre and micronutrients (and don’t forget about Omega-3s!). Enjoy your superfood spread with pancakes (like we did), waffles, toast, crackers and even oatmeal!
