  • 1 lb strawberries (stems removed and quartered)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey (if not vegan) (optional)


  • Add strawberries and water to a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. The juices from the strawberries will be released and the strawberries will get soft.
  • Start crushing the strawberries with a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Add the chia seeds and continue cooking for another minute.
  • Take off of the heat and let cool and thicken completely.
  • Store in a jar with an airtight lid.
