Looking for summer love?

Chocolate, of course, is the most well-known aphrodisiac, and this creamy superfood treat is filled with both cacao powder and crunchy nibs (which are also packed with inflammation-fighting antioxidants).

Meanwhile, maca offers a kiss of libido-, stamina- and fertility-boosting powers. And the peanut butter and coconut milk add healthy fats and protein to help fuel an active day in the sunshine (or the sheets).

Plus, it tastes like the healthiest ice cream sundae ever, and who doesn’t want a sip of that as June rolls in? —Jennifer Kass
