As I just finished writing a guest post for Modern Alternative Pregnancy about, Seven Sexy Foods That Boost Your Libido Naturally. I had a smoothie come to mind, of course! I love smoothies. I love making smoothies that are functional too. While I have received some emails from moms for my Homemade Miralax Smoothie, this one is bound to be more “pleasureful.” :) Drink this Libido Boosting Smoothie for a few days and take notice how things heat up in the bedroom!

Libido Boosting Smoothie:

Sexy Smoothie1 Organic Celery Stalk
1/2 Avocado
12 Organic Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup of raw almonds soaked over night
1/2 cup of fresh spinach leaves
1 tsp of Raw Maca Powder
2 tsp of Raw Cocoa Powder
2 tablespoon Grade B Maple Syrup (Remember, B is for “Better”)

Whip it up in your blender and enjoy. This makes 2 servings. This is not a very sweet smoothie, so if you need to add a little more syrup, go ahead and add some to your liking.

Are you wondering why this combination?

Celery: Eating raw celery increases sexual stimulation in men

Avocado: This “fertility fruit” is known to help increase libido in both men and women

Strawberries: Foods rich in Vitamin C can actually enhance arousal and sensitivity and Vitamin C is also needed to help increase sperm production.

Almonds: High in Vitamin E, Essential Fatty Acids and the amino acid L-Arginine, which helps improves blood circulation and enhances erectile response in both men and women. Soaking raw almonds not only releases residue and tannins from the skins, but has greater absorption of the nutrients by the body and increased digestibility

Maca Powder: One of my favorite ways to boost my energy naturally in the morning, this Peruvian root vegetable used as a folk remedy to increase stamina, fertility, energy, and sexual function. It also helps balance hormones

Chocolate! Truly nature’s aphrodisiac, it releases those good hormones we feel after the a little romp in the bedroom.

I hope you enjoy this, whenever you need a little fuel for the fire.

  1. Ooohh, I didn’t know a smoothie could be so satisfying! ;)

    • You betcha!

  2. This is a MUST try for me… I need something for a Libido Booster…. I know some ingredients are going on my shopping list for this week…. Im assuming I can find these at Trader Joes or Whole Foods right??

    • All can be found at TJs and where I get most of my produce. The Maca Powder is at Whole Foods only. Let me know how you like it. I did use 2 stalks of celery and my husband said he could taste it, so I reduced it to one, but if you like celery, then go for another! Cheers!

  3. Thanks for the recipe, I might have to try this soon…

  4. Where do you find your ingredients?

    • All the produce can be found at your local grocery store. Raw almonds and Maca Powder can be found at a specialty food store or on Amazon.com

  5. As always, I LOVE your recipes! And what wonderful timing with this week’s Mamavation giveaway! :-) You ROCK Jasmine!

    • Thanks Joanna, who knew timing would be so good? Enjoy!
