  8. Avocado – Creamy, silky, smooth, light and fluffy – there’re many things that make avocado a top sensual food. Use it to make a mind-blowing guacamole with artichoke hearts or go in a completely different direction and mix it in with some dates, raw cacao, be pollen and maca for a very potent dessert mousse.
