Aphrodite's Pitaya Nice Cream with Rawmio Orange Chocolate Hearts (Recipe!)

Who doesn't love banana ice cream? Cold, creamy, sweet, totally indulgent yet 100% guilt-free. This recipe takes the concept a few steps further by bringing into the mix some potent superfoods - a few of which happen to have proven aphrodisiac properties - namely cherries, raw chocolate, and maca. We used pitaya, because just look at that color, plus it adds a wealth of phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to the mix.

Cherries have been said to increase pheromone production, and their rich levels of potassium is something the body needs for sexual hormone production. Cacao found within raw chocolate contains love chemicals that stimulate feel good endorphins, mimicking that love high we get when we're head over heels about someone, and maca helps boost hormone production, energy, and stamina *wink*. Share this healthy treat with your lover (make sure to double the recipe), or just make it for yourself because you are SO worth it.
