Raspberry Ginger Chia Jam

Happy Monday!⁣

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I just got back from an early Valentine’s Day getaway with my bf.  We spent some time up in the GA mountains together and had a fantastic weekend. 

Although one thing for sure is that getting home from a trip (even a mini one) can be exhausting 😩.  Usually, on the weekends I grab groceries for the week, prep some delicious food, get laundry done, clean up around the house, etc.  Being gone Friday-Monday left all of that undone. 

Since I am a huge fan of pre-made breakfasts I decided to make yogurt bento boxes.  They are quick to whip up, and I’m good to go for the rest of the week.  Today I am sharing my raspberry ginger chia jam that can be prepared in under 10 minutes.  I usually add some granola and yogurt to make this a full meal.  Then in less than 15 minutes, you have breakfast ready for the week! 

Yogurt is one of my go-to breakfast choices because it’s easy yet so versatile!  You can simply add some berries to your yogurt but I am all about flavor!  Lately, I have been craving a homemade version of flip cup yogurt, so I came up with raspberry ginger chia jam as a topping.
