You know Summer is on it's way when the following all occur simultaneously: 1. It's berry season 2. It's hot at 9am 3. You crave cold, fresh, light foods more than cooked and dense food. This recipe is just like you would buy it at your favourite cafe. But you can tweak it to suit what fruit you have on hand, and the toppings that you like most. Berries are amazing for their antioxidants which fight free radicals and lowers inflammation, but also their phytonutrient content. The combination of macro and micro nutrients has led to the findings that berries reduce neurodegenerative oxidative stress, inflammation, improve blood sugar and insulin response, protect against cancer, protect against macular degeneration and improve cardiovascular function.
Make sure to eat your berries in season and organically where possible so as to minimise exposure to pesticides. Eating your berries fresh also retains their vitamin C levels, which deteriorate when frozen.
