Low Sugar Chia Jam & Whipped Coconut Cream - THE FIT MUM FORMULA

Low Sugar Chia Jam & Whipped Coconut Cream

chia jam and coconut cream

When Summer comes there’s not much better than home baked scones with mountains of clotted cream and jam, but for a lower sugar, more nutritious version, these strawberry chia jam and whipped coconut cream alternatives are perfect.

 

If you’re watching your weight go easy on the whipped coconut cream – it’s still high calorie.

 

You might want to swap the scone for something more nutritious too, perhaps dollop some jam and cream onto protein pancakes for breakfast, or stir into protein porridge, or simply to top fruit salad for a nutritious Summer pudding.

 

If you are dairy intolerant the coconut cream is perfect regardless of whether you’re trying to lose weight, as it’s completely dairy free.

The jam is super easy to make, very low in sugar and suitable for diabetics, though to be honest pretty much everyone needs to reduce their sugar intake. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days but freezes well.
