A fast and healthy smoothie to jumpstart your day
Natural healer Stacey Licht has a great suggestion to start an autumn day off right, her Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake. Of course, protein shake and aphrodisiac are quite possibly two words that don’t belong in the same sentence…normally. But Licht layers this dose of protein with the libido-boosting goodness. For starters, this shake incorporates some of the warming spices, including nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. And we love that the recipe’s protein comes from hemp and almonds. Both of these ingredients are noted for their aphrodisiac benefits.
Pumpkin is an aphrodisiac
This thick, sweet, spiced, and frothed beverage is a great sweet-treat-breakfast replacement. (In fact, did you know pumpkin is a legendary aphrodisiac? Read more about pumpkin’s aphrodisiac properties.) And, just to encourage you a little more we thought we’d let you in on a secret. The choline, protein, folate, manganese, iron and potassium found in this shake is awesome for your libido. So with this protein shake, your day is off to a great start!
This protein-packed drink is like a pumpkin pie in a glass.
