- 1 cup almond milk or coconut milk

Maca powder is available in health-food stores. It can help rebalance hormone levels and may increase libido and sexual function. If maca is a new ingredient for you, start with just 1 teaspoon to avoid potential digestive issues, and gradually add more as you get used to it. Hydrolysed powdered gelatine provides a large range of amino acids and has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. It is available at health-food stores or online.
