Natural healer, Stacey Licht, has a great suggestion to start off a beautiful autumn day: a Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake. Protein shake and aphrodisiac are probably two words that don’t belong in the same sentence…normally. But Licht layers this dose of protein with the libido-boosting goodness of the warming spices nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. And we love that the protein comes from hemp and almonds, both noted for their aphrodisiac benefits.
This thick, sweet, spiced, and frothed beverage is a great sweet-treat-breakfast replacement. (Did you know pumpkin is a legendary aphrodisiac? Read more about its 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. Cheers!
This protein-packed drink is like a pumpkin pie in a glass.
