With summer around the corner, you may be facing a constant struggle between indulging in that scrumptious dessert and maintaining your diet towards that perfect beach body. However, this recipe is the answer to all your problems. You can have the best of both worlds with the delicious raspberry kiwi lime cake that you will proud to say you made and more than happy to eat. What says summer better than fresh fruity flavors? This cake features just that in every single bite.
Similar to a key lime pie, the crust is made from walnuts, graham crackers, honey, and coconut oil. These ingredients are healthier alternatives to the standard baking ingredients that go into most cakes and pies. Once the crust has baked and cooled to the right texture, you can prepare the filling. The first layer of the filling consists of raspberries, which are then topped with banana, yogurt, honey, and a pinch of lime juice. Finally, the filling is topped off with slices of fresh kiwi. The last step is to let it cool in the freezer for around 3 hours or so. This may be the hardest step so try to be patient, because it will be worth the wait!
