It's made with dark chocolate, which increases the brain's dopamine levels, the neurotransmitter responsible for pleasure. Don't forget the juicy strawberries and peaches high in vitamin C, which studies show can increase female libido by increasing blood flow. Bananas make the scene as well, since they're high in B6, which regulates hormone levels and decreases stress. Add in some pumpkin seeds, a great source of zinc, which is a mineral that boosts the testosterone levels needed to increase your sex drive. Spice things up with ginger, which increases circulation and enhances the libido. With a splash of chocolate almond milk, it sounds delicious, right? Get ready to feel sexy after sipping on this.
