Although Valentine’s Day and sweet treats seem to go hand in hand, sugary confections will often leave you feeling bloated and moody (and definitely not sexy). On the other hand, my latest smoothie recipe boasts the best ingredients for the romance-filled day: sweet-tart raspberries and libido-boosting raw cacao (chocolate in its purest form) and maca root powder.
Raspberry + Raw Chocolate Shake
1/2 cup frozen organic raspberries
1 ripe banana
1 cup brown rice milk
1 tbsp organic raw cacao
1 tbsp hemp seed
1 tsp maca root powder
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth.
