Ingredients

  • 2 cup frozen fruit
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional: omit for babies)

Instructions

  • Add fruit, water, and lemon juice to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  • Turn down the heat and let simmer 5-7 minutes. You want the fruit to be mostly broken down.
  • Use an immersion blender, potato masher, or fork to break up any fruit chunks.
  • Stir in chia seeds and sweetener (if using). Let sit ~10 minutes until the chia has absorbed most of the liquid.
  • Transfer to a mason jar or storage container and store in the fridge.
