  • ¼ cup medjool dates (tightly packed, about 4 medium dates – approx. 50 grams)
  • Water (enough to soak the dates)
  • 2 cups raspberries* (fresh or frozen, lightly packed)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Measure your dates and soak them in boiling water for 15 minutes. It's easiest to use an electric kettle to boil the water, then pour it over the dates in a bowl. Then place an upside down plate over the bowl to trap the heat and leave it for at least 15 minutes, longer if you don’t have a powerful food processor. You could alternatively boil your dates on the stove in a pot of water.
  • Once your dates have softened, discard the water and place the dates into your food processor along with all other ingredients. Blend everything until evenly incorporated.
  • Pour the jam into a pot on the stove and heat until it starts to bubble (should happen within 5 minutes). Then reduce to a light bubble and continue heating for 10-15 minutes. The jam is done when it has thickened up to your desired texture.


*If using frozen raspberries, set them out to thaw while your dates are soaking. It’s okay if they are still a bit frozen when it’s time to blend, because your food processor should be able to blend them even if they haven’t completely thawed.
This recipe makes about ¾ cups of jam. The nutrition information is an approximation for 1 tablespoon of jam.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
