15 minutes
Calories 25kcal


  • 2 1/2 cups sweet cherries (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 1/2 lemon (only peel will be used)
  • 1/4 cup erythritol (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 15 drops stevia extract (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 1 cup water (dark, 250 g / 8.8 oz)


  • Wash and pit the cherries and place them in a small sauce pan with a cup of water.
  • Slowly heat up and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  • Peel half of a lemon and place the peel into the sauce pan for about a minute or two.
  • Note: Pell the lemon with a knife rather than using a zester, it will be easier to remove the peel using just a tablespoon.
  • Don't leave the peel in the sauce pan for too long or the jam will get bitter.
  • Open and scrape the vanilla bean and add the seeds into the mixture.
  • Sweeten with Erythritol and stevia.
  • Take off the heat, add chia seeds and mix well.
  • If you are using the jam straight away, leave to rest for 15-20 minutes until it becomes jellied and firm.
  • Mix before using.
  • Otherwise, transfer into a glass jar, let it cool down, seal and keep refrigerated.
  • Use within 5-7 days.
