Aphrodisiacs literally add spice and sexual intimacy between partners. It allows both partners to have the best experience during their time together. Although there is a dispute in the scientific community on regarding the validity and verifiability of aphrodisiacs, there are certain kinds of food that help in increasing the libido of an individual.
The following are six vegan recipes that are aphrodisiac in nature. Personally, I haven’t tried the veracity of these being aphrodisiacs, but I know that these are very delicious. It is noteworthy to mention that there are vegan recipes that can act as bolster for one’s sex drive. Of course eating a plant based diet has been shown to improve all areas of ones health, not just the health in the intimacy area.
The first dish has a main ingredient that we are all too familiar with, chocolate. Oh, that sweet, decadent chocolate that melts in our mouth!
There is this notion that chocolate was the earliest aphrodisiac in human history. I think so too; it’s not difficult to create chocolate so long as you have the necessary ingredients and right cooking tools. Maybe that’s why chocolates are very popular during Valentine’s Day because after giving it, it stimulates arousal in the brain, leading to greater liking. Chocolate contains tryptophan and phenylethylamine, which promotes the aforementioned liking and arousal.
A perfect way to utilize the effects of chocolate is through this Spiked Sweet Potato Truffles. It takes time to make it, so it is preferably done a day before it is intended to be eaten. Add a dash of romantic evening candle-lit dinner to perfectly accentuate the mood. For those who are non-vegans, but lactose intolerant, this recipe is good for you because it is dairy-free.

Almond nuts are one of my favorites. I don’t know when I started eating almonds and loving them. Since I was very young, I would often scour the kitchen for any hidden jar or jars of almonds. My mother would often scold me because I did not know the concept of saving for rainy days, meaning setting some of the food aside for later. You cannot possibly blame the six-year old me for the lack of inhibition. You can blame it on the almonds for being delicious.
Setting aside my trip down memory lane, let’s talk about almonds as being potential increasers of libido. For a female, the scent emitted by almonds are very stimulating. For the all the readers of this blog, you should consider having almond-infused food when visiting your girlfriends.

I would have never thought that asparagus actually has aphrodisiac potential. Before searching for this recipe, I have always thought that asparagus was just a nice addition to the platter. Every time I visited my grandmother, she would always prepare a soup that has asparagus as its main recipe. I love the way that she cooks the soup and it also paved my liking towards asparagus. When we also go to this particular restaurant, she would order asparagus soup as part of the appetizer.
This vegetable has aspartic acid. The function of aspartic acid is to neutralize the fatigue within the body which causes ammonia, high calcium in the blood stream, vitamin E and potassium to cleanse the kidneys. In turn, the body receives a boost in energy which is very important when having sex. The lovemaking session requires stamina and what better way than having this Vegan Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto.
