Hey, fruit—I wanna jam it with you!
Yep, I couldn’t help but throw in a Bob Marley phrase… I mean, my name is Marley after all (and of course, I’m a Bob fan). Reggae music just makes you feel good! Do you know what else does? This AMAZING keto berry jam!! 💃🏽
It’s thickened with chia seeds and sweetened with your favorite keto sweetener, whatever that may be. I prefer allulose, but I also make this jam with stevia and erythritol. I love how simple it is to customize this recipe, and at only 1 net carb per serving, everyone can have their jam… and eat it, too!
Very Berry Keto Jam

prep time: 5 MINUTES
cook time: 5 MINUTES
total time: 10 MINUTES
This easy and delicious keto and low-carb jam really hits the sweet spot!
- 1 cup fresh berries of your choice (I used 1/4 cup each, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, & blueberries)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- preferred sweetener, optional (equivalent to 1-2 tablespoons sugar or to taste)
Place berries and sweetener in a small pot over medium-high heat. (If using strawberries, I suggest chopping them first.) Stirring occasionally, cook for about 5 minutes or until fruit starts to break down. Remove from heat and mash using a potato masher, wooden spoon, or immersion blender until you reach your desired consistency.
Add the chia seeds and stir to combine. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes. The chia seeds will thicken the jam as it cools.
Taste the jam and add additional sweetener if needed. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week, or freeze for up to three months. (I use mini ice cube trays to freeze single servings.)
Nutritional information does not include values for sweetener. If using stevia, the nutritional data will remain the same. For all other sweeteners, values will need to be calculated accordingly.

Can this jam be canned?
Hi Judy! Yes! I believe you could do that!
This jam is Amazing and Sooo easy to make!!! Thanks for the recipe❣
You are so welcome! Glad it was yummy and easy, Donna!
Can you use frozen, thawed fruit?
Yes yo uh could sn freeze thawed fruit
Thank you so much for this easy recipe, will make some tonight, I have loads of frozen berries, will make a few different kinds.
Thanks for all your good recipes.
Just made this with some black currents that I had in the freezer, came out fantastic. I know the currents will alter the carb rate but I had to use them:)
Sounds yummy! Thanks for letting us know how it turned out with the currents!
So easy to make and delicious, like summer in a jar! Plus, you can add it to low carb yogurt like Two Good yogurt as a sweet mixer! 😋
Yummy idea! Thanks for the tip!
What is the shelf life of the jam?
Hi Mike! This will be good in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for a week and in the freezer for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
Hi – love the recipe. Question – if you freeze it – how do you thaw it for use? – heat in a pot or microwave again from frozen? Does it taste just as good after freezing and reheating? Thanks.
Hey there! I did look into this. It looks like you can just transfer it to the refrigerator to thaw overnight. For a faster thaw, you can submerge it in warm water for about 30 minutes. Once it is defrosted it isn’t recommended to be frozen again. It can be frozen for up to 1 year, however freezing too long can cause it to lose flavor. Hope this is helpful! 🤗
