Healthy living should not be the sole provenance of the elite and the secret to longevity should not be prohibitively expensive. But with the contrasting demands of a busy career and a home life, an attainable cheat sheet like Amanda Chantal Bacon’s The Moon Juice Cookbook is more than handy. In fact, it counts Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Alicia Keys as fans.

Explore sexuality and creativity with Hot Sex Milk, a warm elixir that sends power to the right places with its unique blend of a pumpkin seed milk base, maca powder, cacao powder, ho shouwu, coconut oil, schisandra berries, and bee pollen. The Chinese herb ho shouwu is more popularly known as cacao, and the dried schisandra berries from northern China are said to be natural aphrodisiacs that boost libido and improve prostate health. For something more subtle, the Sesame Ginger Matcha awakens the taste buds. This moon milk is alchemized from raw, silky butter to bolster the immune system, while matcha is an incredibly energizing source of antioxidants that is gentle on the adrenal glands even as it boosts metabolism.
