Description

A beautiful cake that is so healthy it's even suitable to enjoy during a detox. If you're new to raw desserts, a key lime pie is the perfect place to start. It's easy and very foolproof. This recipe by Kelly Fielding of Bella and Bhakti comes enhanced with a burst of antioxidant-rich matcha green tea powder. This is a really simple recipe, but you does require a high speed blender to get the filling super smooth.
