An Easy Raw Homemade Strawberry Jam

  1 rater(s)

A classic fruit jam is a typical spread for toast, pancakes, or simple sandwich. Most store bought fruit jams, though, contain high fructose corn syrup, dyes, artificial flavors, and added sugars. Not all jams are created equal, with some offering low sugar content and fewer ingredients, many of which are of higher quality. Because store bought jams contain a lot of sugar, though, consuming too much may contribute to weight gain, cavities, or type 2 diabetes.

This raw vegan strawberry jam uses dates in place of refined sugar or sugar syrups. That makes this jam rich in fiber and other essential micronutrients. It is truly a healthy breakfast spread for you and your children! You only need frozen strawberries, dates, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Just make sure that you let the frozen strawberries thaw out for a while before you add them to the food processor. And before you ask, yes, you can use frozen strawberries while cleansing. Just make sure that there are no added sugars or preservatives. The only ingredient on the ingredient list should be the strawberries.

Once you blend the strawberries and lemon juice into a smooth puree, add the dates and then continue blending. It is perfectly acceptable if the jam is somewhat chunky. You may not want big chunks of dates in your jam, though. That will be an overwhelming bite of sweetness! This raw jam goes great on a variety of foods, including raw vegan ice cream.
