Blackberry Chia Cranberry Sauce

Blackberry Chia Cranberry Sauce

Blackberry Chia Cranberry Sauce is the perfect clean eating addition to your Thanksgiving meal. It still has the same tart taste as your usual cranberry sauce but it’s sweetened with blackberries and cane sugar. And the chia gives it a unique seedy texture, while adding lots of fibre to your meal!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small sauce pan, add all the ingredients, except the chia seeds, and bring to a low boil. This will take approximately 10 minutes. At this point, the fruit should be a bit mushy.
  2. Remove the fruit mixture from the heat and mash with a fork. I like to fully mash the fruit to release all the flavour, which really brings out the tartness of the cranberries.
  3. Add the chia seeds to the mixture and stir until well combined. Return to heat and simmer on low for five minutes. (Stir the mixture a few times to ensure it doesn’t burn on).
  4. Remove the mixture from the heat and let sit covered for 20 minutes. This will allow the chia seeds to plump up and thicken the sauce.
  5. Store the sauce in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 5-7 days.

Notes

  1. I like thick cranberry sauce. If you prefer your sauce a little thinner, you can reduce the amount of chia seeds.
