Should you make al haeitz after a food containing a kezayis of the 7 species if it was not recognizable as such (=got a bracha rishona of shehakol) and/or there was no briyah (complete fruit)?

What if you made a shehakol because the 7 species was tofel, but you ate a kezayis?

    I was once told by a Rav that if you make shehakol then you don't make a bracha achronah other than borei nefashos. I subsequently saw the MB in a couple places that if you make a shehakol missufik you should either (1) not eat a kazayis to avoid the after bracha or (2) eat something else to make borei nefashos and meein shalosh. Sorry don't have exact sources so only a comment. – robev Aug 21 '17 at 23:30
  • @robev Amazing info. I was also taught that all shehakol is followed by borei nefashos. (I wanted to ask, at that time, about the borderline situations, but couldn't remember what they were.) – SAH Aug 22 '17 at 0:28
  • Does the situation in my question count as "shehakol missufik"? @robev – SAH Aug 22 '17 at 0:28
  • @robev And could you eat a kezayis of the food as long as it doesn't contain a kezayis of Seven Species content? – SAH Aug 22 '17 at 0:30

    no, because your first case was "it was not recognizable as such" - if it's not recognizable the bracha is definitely shehakol, no safek. A safek would be, for instance, if it was mashed up but still recognizable. – Jay Aug 22 '17 at 19:18
