2 Recipes that Children will LOVE! <3


Magic Jam

Makes a “superfoods” jam/jelly with no pectin, safe sweetener and no animal products or preservatives.

Multiple Servings


1 8 oz. bag of frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or blackberries all work well) – defrosted.

3 TB. of high quality maple syrup

4 TB. of chia seeds (you can find these in bulk bins or Superfoods section at local health food store or search online ( has excellent ones) Chia seeds have a fantastic nutritional profile, including high protein and amino acids. They are hydrophilic and absorb 20x their weight. There’s a magical effect at seeing how the seeds turn the
fruit into a delicious and delightful jam to spread on toast, waffles, for “PB & J” sandwiches or even as a dessert treat.

Directions: Blend defrosted fruits. If you want to make complete kid friendly they can mash the fruits with a potato masher to avoid using the blender. Add 2 TB of the maple syrup and test to see if sweet enough – if not add the extra TB. Add 4 TB. of chia seeds, mix well and let set for at least 20 minutes, stirring several times in between. The mixture should set like a jam or you can add another TB. of the chia seeds. Will keep, covered, up to 4 days in the fridge.


(I have a photo of a blackberry jam I made with a piece of dehydrated gluten-free almond bread if you need it)

You can also refer them to the “Trustables” clip of a segment I did on the Daytime Show – making an alternative/healthy PB & J (BTW there is also a raw “tapioca” pudding idea on that segment that they can make from chia, as well)



It’s quite a surprise to learn that you can make chocolate pudding with the “secret” ingredient below – you won’t even taste it!

1 Serving

1/2 ripe avocado

1-2 TB. maple syrup or raw honey

2-3 TB. of unsweetened cocoa powder.

Optional: Dash of vanilla


Spoon out avocado into a mixing bowl – with a large fork mash it well, add sweetener and mix – then sprinkle in 2 TB. of the cocoa powder. Mix thoroughly and taste – should be sweet with no real avocado taste, so adjust by adding more cocoa and/or sweetener.
