Here’s an amazing, keto friendly recipe for strawberry chia jam that you are going to love. My secret for making this recipe low carb and sugar free is to use Swerve Sweetener! With just 6 ingredients, it is easy to follow even for those of us who are less skilled in the kitchen.

Low Carb Fresh Strawberry Jam
Where I live, I have access to some wonderful local farms were I am able to pick my own fresh and beautiful strawberries. Of course if you don’t have the same sort of access, you can always go pick some up from your local grocery store or farmers market near you. Or if you prefer, you can even use frozen berries.
What I love most about this recipe is that you can use strawberries or whatever berries are in season. You can make it with whatever your favorite berries are! It is so versatile. You’ll want to keep in mind that blueberries have the highest carb count, so you may want to use something like blackberries or raspberries to keep it lower carb. You can have it as a special treat, a dessert, or an occasional breakfast! Use it as a topper on some heavy whipping cream or even with butter on a Keto bagel. While you wouldn’t want to have this every day, it’s a great way to indulge without feeling guilty.
