Ever wondered what would be the healthy alternative to a cheesecake? Well, here is your answer: This Raw Lime & Blueberry Cake

Baobab: The fruit has a velvety shell and is about the size of a coconut. The powdery white pulp has an acidic, tart flavor somewhere between grapefruit, pear, and vanilla. Baobab contains more vitamin C than an orange, more iron than red meat, more potassium than a banana and more calcium than a glass of milk: in a word, it’s very nutritious. You buy baobab in health stores or online.
