Set the mood and boost performance with this tasty shake
Kevin and I are making a very sexy and tasty smoothie—one that helps set the mood and also contains some “performance enhancing” ingredients for the guy in your life. Now, this isn’t a recipe we invented from scratch. When we were dating, we stumbled across a recipe for a sex shake in a men’s magazine. The shake called for a lot of interesting supplements that claim to help with male circulation (aka keeping the wind in the sails) and sexual health, such as selenium, vitamin E, ginseng and ginger. But it wasn’t so tasty. So we reinvented it with smoothie ingredients that actually taste good and have added benefits. For instance, raw cashews make a great, creamy smoothie base and they also have a ton of zinc, which is known as the “sex mineral” and is said to raise testosterone and, um, sperm production.
The big question, of course, is does it work? Well, I recently had my third baby in three years, so there’s that. And at the very least, the smoothie is something fun to make, try and laugh about together, which I think is a great recipe for lighting the spark.
