Welcome to the first of three posts that are part of my Getting Sexy in the Kitchen Series. Today we will cover your sweet aphrodisiac foods. In the next two parts, I’ll cover your savory options and then look at some spices and herbs.
I call you out as a hedonist! Don’t worry, I am not judging you on what you might be doing behind closed doors. But if you are reading this blog or consider yourself a foodie, then YOU, my friend, are a hedonic eater! No wonder you landed here looking for aphrodisiac recipes.
You are in search of pleasure through food. It’s a turn on, it makes you feel good, it in fact releases dopamine in your body. Unfortunately for most people that means junk food – sugar and carbs. But I like to think of epicureans as a higher breed who can find pleasure in any food. Even healthy ones if prepared in a sexy delicious way!
Consuming You Turns Me On
Aphrodisiac ingredients in this Feeling Hot Chocolate Smoothie recipe:
- bananas contain bromelain, an enzyme that triggers testosterone production.
- mangos, loaded with vitamin E, help to regulate sex hormones and boosts sex drive.
- avocados, also full of vitamin E, the conquerors of South Americ forbade its people to eat them because they resembled hanging testicles.
- cacao or dark chocolate stimulates dopamine, inducing feelings of pleasure.
- maca boosts virility and improves sexual desire, like a natural Viagra pill.
- cayenne/ chili peppers can raise your heart rate and stimulate endorphins.
Other sweet aphrodisiac foods include, but are not limited too, watermelon, almonds, raspberries, figs, coconut water, pomegranate, honey, strawberries, and cherries.
This unctuous and slightly spicy smoothie is not too sweet and will not leave you feeling weighed down before a romp in the bedroom. And obviously, the Feeling Hot Chocolate Smoothie recipe serves two people. I will not judge if you make it for one…or three!
Include this smoothie as part of a red recipe menu for Saint-Valentine’s Day for your loved (lusted) one. And check out my whole Getting Sexy in the Kitchen Series , including my Shrimp Bedded on Beluga lentils Snuggled by Pomegranate Fennel Salsa main dish.
