Natural Highs: Two Sensual Kratom-Infused Recipes
Kratom, the powder derived from the Mitragyna Speciosa tree of Southeast Asia, is a familiar face in the NSFW Archives. With its many uses and benefits ranging from giving a boost akin to coffee, to helping curb opioid addiction, it's no wonder kratom's popularity in the US is on the rise. One noted benefit that caught our eye? Libido-enhancement. As one online forum states, "Its stimulating factors [also] help with stimulating nerve endings and increasing tactile sensitivity." Kratom users frequently report an enhancement in the overall pleasure experienced while engaging in sexual activity.
With these juicy details in mind, we decided to partner with Red Kratom to put together a couple of recipes for you to try next time the mood arises. Find below: one refreshing tea, and one decidedly decadent hot chocolate.
1. Kratom Passion Tea
4 cups of Water
2 cups of Tart Cherry Juice
6 bags of Passion Tea (we used Yogi Raspberry Passion)
4 tbsp of Lemon Juice
8 tbsp of Honey
3 tbsp of Kratom of Choice
-Bring a quart of water and cherry juice to boil in pot.
-Lower heat to a simmer. Add raspberries, lemon juice, tea and kratom.
-Return to boil, stirring until the kratom dissolves in the mixture.
-Add honey and serve.
Serving size: 1 - 2 cups for desired effect.
2. Kratom Hot Chocolate
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp to 1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups milk
4 tbsp sugar
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
2 tbsp of Kratom of Choice
-Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.
-Whisk in cornstarch until combined and melty. If you want the hot chocolate thicker, use the maximum amount of cornstarch.
-Add in milk and sugar. Increase the heat gradually to medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Mixture will start to thicken.
-Once the mixture begins to thicken, turn the heat down to low and add in the chocolate chips and kratom. Stir constantly until well melted.
