Dukan Diet Attack Recipe: Dukan Goji Berry Jam or Jelly

I’ve put this recipe as an Attack Phase Recipe because the latest official information about goji berries advises that you can have one tablespoon of goji berries a day in the Attack Phase as a tolerated item.

Fruit jam (UK) or jelly (US) is one of the foods than many followers of the Dukan Diet find themselves missing in the weight loss phases of the diet plan and this recipe allows you to enjoy Dukan Diet friendly goji berry jam in small quantities. The amount you can have varies according to the phase of the diet you are on and whether it is a PP or PV day.

In Attack phase and PP days in Cruise you are allowed 1 tablespoon of goji berries.  This increases to 2 tablespoons for PV days in Cruise and to 3 tablespoons in Consolidation.

You need to do the same as  you would when using oat bran in a recipe, you have to divide the finished item in order to get the right number of tablespoons of goji berries in your daily serving.

Dukan Goji Berry Jam or Jelly


  • 5 tablespoons of Goji Berries
  • Liquid Sweetener to taste (or Strawberry Sugar free syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon of Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon of Agar-agar
  • Water (to cover the berries)


  1. Put the goji berries in a small nonstick saucepan and cover them with water.
  2. Leave them to soak for 20 to 30 minutes or longer if you have the patience.
  3. Add the lemon juice and sweetener or syrup and bring to the boil stirring all the time.
  4. Mix in the agar-agar and them simmer for 7 or 8 minutes continuing to stir the mixture all the time.
  5. Place your finished jam/jelly in a clean glass jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days

How will you have your goji berry jam/jelly?  On an oat bran pancake, on Dukan toast or perhaps with a yogurt.

    Why can’t you have sugar free jam?

    • Amber on January 25, 2017

      Hi Rachel

      Sugar free jam isn’t allowed as fruit(other than rhubarb and goji berries) isn’t permitted.

    Hi there,

    I have a weakness for peanut butter and jelly.
    I found sugar free concord grape jelly by Polaner with fiber. [5 calories, 0 fat, 5g Carb, 3g fiber per tablespoon]

    I also found a powdered peanut butter that you mix with water. I am not sure how this will taste compared to the Skippy that I used to eat, but I will give anything a try. I just wanted to run the details past you first.

    Serving size – 2 tablespoons
    Calories 45
    Fat 1.5 g
    Carb 5g
    Fiber 2g
    Protein 5g

    Are either or both of these ok in the cruise phase? Or should I wait for the consolidation or stabilization phase?

      Hi Cassie

      These foods would need to wait until Consolidation/Stabilisation.

      Kind regards

    I would like to know if I can preserve goji berry jam or jelly in a boiling water bath and how long would I do it for? Thanks

      Hi Joyce

      I’ve not tried this so can’t answer the question. Sorry!

    Can you thicken with a bit of corn starch- I thought I read this was tolerated.

    • Amber on April 14, 2014

      Hi Sue

      Yes corn starch is a tolerated item that is added in the Cruise Phase.

      Best wishes

    Are you allowed tapioca to thicken fruit when baking?

    • Amber on March 17, 2014

      Hi Trisha

      No tapioca is a starchy food.

      Kind regards

    Hi Amber

    Are you allowed to eat sugar free fruit jelly (e.g. raspberry/strawberry) during the attack phase?

    Many thanks

    • Amber on September 19, 2013

      Hi Fleur

      You can have sugar free jello (US) or jelly (UK) but not sugar free jelly (US) or jam (UK).

      Best wishes
