Heart-healthy food tip: Almond bread is a very low fat biscuit with the heart-friendly goodness of nuts.

Pistachios are lower in fat than most other nuts, and their green-coloured skin signals the presence of helpful phytochemicals. With the added goodness of berries, this dessert is perfect for an occasional treat.



  1. Step 1

    Combine ricotta, cranberries, apricots, pistachios, rosemary and icing sugar in a bowl and mix well.

  2. Step 2

    To make the stack, place a slice of almond bread on each of the four serving plates.

  3. Step 3

    Using half the ricotta mixture, spread each slice with the ricotta mixture then top with another piece of almond bread and ricotta mixture.

  4. Step 4

    Place the remaining almond bread on top of each stack and serve sprinkled with the extra cranberries and pistachios and a sprinkling of icing sugar.
