Healthy Homemade No-Cook Strawberry Jam
- Pour the strawberry puree into a large bowl. Whisk in the water, lemon juice, stevia, and natural food Whisk in the metamucil (whisk vigorously to avoid clumps. If you get clumps, you can throw the entire mix in the blender).
- Scoop mixture into serving jars and seal tightly. Refrigerate to store. Keeps for ~1 week.
3 tablespoons of this Healthy Homemade No Cook Strawberry Jam has just 10 calories, 2g carbs, 2g fiber, and 1g of (naturally occurring) sugar. For the same serving size (3 tbs) of Smuckers Strawberry Jam, on the other hand, you’ll have a whopping 150 calories, 39g carbs and 36g sugar!!
I calculated the nutrition facts based on a serving size of 3 tablespoons rather than 1 tablespoon, because really, who ever uses just ONE tablespoon?!?
I think I’ll choose my jam — there are only natural sugars rather than added sugars (3 tablespoons of Smuckers jam has 3 tbs of sugar… it’s literally pure sugar!)
We can all feel good about taking a giant spoon to a jar of this homemade jam. It’s pure, it’s wholesome, and it’s packed with fiber, vitamins and fresh strawberry flavor. Mmmm… everyone’s favorite flavor of jam has finally been made sugar free, low carb, low calorie and vegan… and all natural to boot. No need for the sugar, corn syrup and food coloring, nopity nope!
