guacamole with avocado, lime, chili and tortilla chips, salsa

A-B-C Sexy Snack: make a guacamole from avocado seasoned with basil and chili 

Avocados: Resembling voluptuous female curvatures or a male's crown jewels as they hang in pairs on a tree, the avocado is packed with nutrients that boost hormone production and fertility.

Basil: The alluring aroma of basil is said to have an aphrodisiac effect; it is also very stimulating. Basil has a warming effect on the body and enhances sexual desire by increasing heart rate and improving blood flow. 

Chili peppers: A well-known aphrodisiac, chilies release endorphins to boost mood and surge energy while its heat warms the body, makes the tongue tingle, causes lips to swell and the pulse to quicken.

Beetroot juice

A-B-C Sexy Smoothie: use these fresh ingredients to spice things up in the bedroom 

Apples: The symbol of health and temptation contains the compound phloridzin, which is similar to the female sex hormone estradiol, largely responsible for sexual arousal. Apples also contain polyphenols and antioxidants which can stimulate blood flow to the genitalia.

Beetroots: Beets are a natural source of tryptophan and betaine, both substances that promote a feeling of well-being. They also contain high amounts of boron, a trace mineral that increases the level of sex hormones in the human body.

Celery: Celery is high in essential nutrients that make for great sex, plus it contains  androsterone and adrostenol, which serve as a sexual attractant when ingested.

C is also for carrot, which has been attributed the power to stimulate sexual appetites. Whether this is true or not, it goes really well with these other three ingredients to make a super smoothie so powerful that it can certainly contribute energy to go for hours! Stick in a piece of ginger for extra zest.

A-B-C Sexy Sweet: dip bananas in chocolate and sprinkle with crushed almonds

Almonds: Almonds are known to arouse women even merely by their smell.  They also lower cholesterol and provide abundant doses of vitamin E, magnesium and fiber to increase energy levels and fertility.

Bananas: Bananas contain minerals and enzymes that enhances male libido. They are rich in potassium, vitamins and magnesium which boost sexual hormone production.

Chocolate: Raw chocolate is the ultimate of natural aphrodisiacs, containing anandamide, the psyochoactive feel-good chemical; phenylethylamine, which induces feelings of excitement, attraction and euphoria; and tryptophan, which promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation by helping the brain produce serotonin.

Of course there are several other foods that have earned the reputation of assisting the age-old desire of an unquenchable libido, with at least 23 other letters of the alphabet to explore!
