Ingredients

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) frozen raspberries, divided
  • 1 tablespoon mildly-flavored honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds

    Remove berries from heat and stir in honey until fully melted and berries have broken up into a uniform texture.

    Stir in lime juice and chia seeds. Allow to sit undisturbed until chia seeds have bloomed, about ten minutes.

    Gently fold in remaining cup of raspberries. Store in the refrigerator.
