With every bite of these recipes you are contributing to better hormonal and sexual health and increasing libido, which never hurts ;)

Maca is a root grown in the Peruvian Andes and has been used for thousands of years to reduce stress, balance hormones, fertility and increase sexual desire.

Can you imagine waking up in the morning with the smell of freshly baked cookies all over the house? Sounds great right?

130g oat flour
6 dates soaked
3 tbsp Plant Protein Vanilla
2 tbsp coconut oil
Chocolate chips > 85%
a pinch of salt

- Beat all the ingredients except the chocolate
- Add the chocolate chips to the dough
- Shape the cookies and place them on the oven tray

Dark chocolate helps release endorphins, so it can help you feel calmer, relaxed and happier. Your perfect ally for this Valentine's Day!
LEARN HOW TO MAKE LATTE ART
Making latte art seems almost impossible, right?
Surely you have tried many times to make a pretty drawing on your coffee but it turned out to be a mess.
With this little tutorial you will surely learn many things that you didn't know yet and that is why you haven't gotten this pretty little heart until now.
Surprising someone is not giving something expensive, it can be something as simple as making a heart on their favorite latte.
- It is very important that the milk has approximately 3% fat. Fat is what makes the emulsion possible and that cream is formed.
- To get a good 'cream' of milk (especially if it is vegetable), the milk cannot be very hot. Ideally it should be between 55-65°
What milk do we use then?
- Our favorite and that of the baristas is oat milk since it is possible to make foam and latte art if it has enough % fat. They even sell special milks for baristas but it is not strictly necessary to use them.
- Soy milk usually foams well, but it is very difficult to get patterns in the latte. It does not mix well with milk.
- Almond milk is possible to make cream and drawings, but it requires more practice.
The pink color of our Pink Latte is thanks to its beet content.
Beets have been shown to be very beneficial for heart health. It helps reduce blood pressure ( study ), preserve the endothelial function of our body ( study ) and improve sports performance ( study ).
