Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place rose hips into a mason jar.
  2. In a small saucepan warm up the apple juice, bring to a low low simmer.
  3. Turn off heat and pour the juice over the rosehips in the mason jar and give it a stir.
  4. Put on a lid and let it sit overnight. You really just want the juice to get warmed up a bit, as it helps soften the rose hips. You could completely skip this step and just add the rose hips and juice to the jar and proceed as well.
  5. In the morning it will have a thick jam like texture. You could potentially use it as is (and I have), however I'm going to spice it up a bit.
  6. Next, place the chopped strawberries, chia seeds and cinnamon (if using) into the mason jar.
  7. Use an immersion blender to blend well, about 2-3 minutes.
  8. Taste and add sweetener or more cinnamon if desired. I like to avoid any added sugar since it is already fruit with juice. So, I add a touch of the liquid stevia drops and keep it a slight bit on the tart side. My boys love it! However, you can certainly add a bit of maple syrup or honey to taste.
  9. Serve with coconut flour crepes and some coconut whipped cream for a delightful little breakfast or snack!
