Did you know maca is a natural libido-booster? Paired with two other commonly known aphrodisiacs, dark chocolate and pomegranate seeds, maca is a clever superfood ingredient that will sneak some sexy into your Valentine’s Day treats this year.
This recipe is provided by Rachel Drori, founder of Daily Harvest, a new NYC-based wellness brand that makes better nutrition truly convenient by delivering frozen, ready-to-blend smoothie ingredients directly to your doorstep.
- 6 Ounces high-quality dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa content or higher)
- 1/2 Cup pomegranate seeds
- 2 Teaspoons maca powder
In a large pan or double boiler, heat the chocolate over low heat until completely melted, stirring occasionally. Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir in the maca thoroughly. Gently fold in 1/4 cup of the pomegranate seeds.
Line a muffin pan with paper liners and drop in the chocolate mixture by the spoonful. Top each cup with a few pomegranate seeds and place in the freezer to harden.
Before eating, remove from the freezer for a few minutes so the chocolate can come to temperature (but don’t let it melt!).
