This pretty slice has a ruby red topping of lush berries, and once you bite into one you'll discover the satisfying crunch of chopped walnuts – a perfect combination. Since this recipe is high in total energy, it should only be served as a very special treat.
*Use any combination of nuts and berries. Try 2 cups (400 g) juicy blackberries with ¾ cup (100 g) chopped macadamias or 2 cups (320 g) blueberries with ¾ cup (100 g) chopped almonds. *
If fresh berries are out of season, use frozen berries. Thaw and drain them before use.
*Along with ellagic acid and betacarotene, blackberries and raspberries contain other cancer-fighting phytochemicals: mono-terpenes, catechins and phenolic acids. Monoterpenes also inhibit cholesterol production.
*If you're seeking a good potassium source, consider raspberries, which are superior to blackberries in their potassium content. This vital mineral helps to regulate blood pressure.
