Nutritional values

Blackberries have a high anthocyanin content. These water-soluble secondary plant compounds act as effective protection against cell-damaging free radicals. Together with the wholemeal flour, the red-blue fruits also provide digestive fiber.

Organic limes are harder to find than organic lemons. If you can't find any or don't like the bitter taste of the lime, simply use an untreated lemon. Both citrus fruits stimulate fat burning through their acidity.
