Total Time5 mins
Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Servings: 1 cup


  • 1 cup frozen or fresh ripened fruit of your choice (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches, cherries, apricots, grapes, or a combination)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  • Add fruit into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes until fruit is softened and starts to release some of its juices. Alternatively, you can heat fruit in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  • After heated, mash fruit with a fork or potato masher until fruit is mostly broken down with some chunks left.
  • Stir in chia seeds and let mixture set in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. This allows time for the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and gelatinize.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.


If you are using grapes, be sure to heat them in a saucepan rather than in the microwave
