Healthy key lime cake

So I’ve got this thing for key lime cakes and lemon curd tarts. I just can’t get enough of them. The sweetness of the crust with the tartness of the filling–oh dear lawdy!

So, in the true spirit of working on my new year’s resolution of being kind to my Temple, taking good care of it and nourishing it well, I give to you this healthy rendition of a key lime tart. It’s quick, easy and healthy. Most importantly, it’s ridiculously easy to make and only needs 6 ingredients. Are you ready to have this tarty beauty in and around your mouth?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. ½ cup of almond powder (or crush the almonds yourself)
  2. ½ of pitted dates
  3. A pinch of sea salt
  4. 2 very ripe bananas
  5. The juice of 1 lime
  6. 6 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  7. 1 sliced lime

Here’s how it’s done, son:

First, you’ll need to make the crust. 

Combine the almond powder, dates, sea salt and 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and blitz them in a food processor.

Line a tin with cling film and place the crumbly crust and press the crust into the tin nice and tight.

Combine the bananas, lime juice and another 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a blender and blend till nice and creamy.

Top the crust off with the creamy mixture.

Place sliced lime on top.

Place in freezer for about 3 hours.

Slice and serve.


Yes, it is that easy. 

Please go straight-up bananas with me and give this recipe a shot.

It’s easy, quick and healthy. Oh…and did I mention that it tastes like tarty heaven?
