Raspberry Chia Compote

Posted 2015-10-04 by Annalisa Brownfollow
A recent brunch date with a colleague at Henley’s Wholefoods , in Alexandria Sydney, I discovered what everyone had been raving about; Raspberry Chia Jam.

Henley’s Raspberry Chia Jam was outstanding, not overly sweet and contained no sugar at all. I couldn’t help be impressed and decided to try my hand at making my own version using the minimal ingredients necessary.

You can use the compote as a spread or as an ingredient in cakes and muffins or heat a few tablespoons and use as a topping over custard, ice-cream or yoghurt.

Alternatively the brilliant red colouring will make a stunning centre piece on any cheese board.

is delicious as an alternative jam spread or it can be used as an ingredient in cakes or muffins or used as a topping over custard, icecream or yoghurt. Or simply serve the compote with a cheese platter.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 Cup

1 Cup Raspberries
2 Tablespoons Coconut Water
1 Tablespoon Rice Malt Syrup
2 Tablespoons White Chia Seeds

  • Add the Raspberries, coconut water, rice malt syrup and chia seeds into a food blender and process until the mixture is liquefied and smooth.

  • Combine all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.

  • Transfer the Raspberry mixture into a small saucepan and bring to a slow and soft boil over a medium heat.

  • Reduce to a low heat and stir the mixture for approximately 5 minutes until it has thickened. Remove from heat and cool.

  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and bring to the boil, allow to simmer for a few minutes and remove from heat and cool.

  • Spoon the into a sterilised jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  • Notes
    As there are no preservatives or sugar to increase the compote’s shelf life, it’s recommended you make this in small quantities.

    Raspberries have one of the lowest fructose sugar levels of all fruits and the added bonus is they have more fibre than other berries.

    The Chia Seeds not only help absorb the liquid making the texture and consistency of the compote similar to store bought spreads, but it also adds a nutritional punch.

    Spread some onto your toast its delicious.
