The holidays are here, and we’ve whipped up a couple of calming CBD-infused recipes perfect for the most wonderful time of the year. These treats are quick and easy to make, so you can start enjoying the benefits of CBD as soon as possible.
The holidays are such a fun and exciting time, with plenty of opportunities to cook up some old and new delicious treats. If you want to add a bit of magic to your kitchen, CBD is the perfect way to spice things up. Here are a couple of recipes that we’re sure you’ll love!
CBD-infused Lavender Hot Chocolate
What could possibly be better than a warm, chocolatey, lavender drink on a cold winter’s night? The only thing that can make this classic chocolatey, lavender drink is to add some CBD to it! We don’t know about you, but this sounds like bliss in a mug to us. It doesn’t only have anti-inflammatory properties, but it’s also incredibly delicious.
- 1 dropper of neutral-flavored CBD oil
- 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
- 1 cup of unsweetened milk of choice
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- Pinch of salt
Add the milk to a small pot and bring it to a boil. Then add the lavender and cover the pot. Leave it to steep for 10 minutes. Next, pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or tea strainer to remove the lavender and reserve the infused milk. Blend together with maple syrup, vanilla, cocoa powder, sea salt, and CBD oil. It’s ready to be served immediately.
* If you’d like to try a boozy version of the lavender hot chocolate, simply add 1 oz. of grand marnier liquor to the recipe.
Chocolate Reindeer Mousse
This is the perfect dish for the holiday season. It’s the ideal dessert after a big meal. The best part is that it’s light and airy, so you won’t be left too full after indulging. Adding some CBD to this recipe will definitely leave you wanting to save room for dessert.
- 15 drops CBD oil
- 6 pitted dates
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- 3-4 tablespoons cold water
- 2 pitted and scooped avocados
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Optional walnuts to top
Combine the cocoa powder, dates, vanilla, maple syrup, cold water, and vanilla, and add it to a food processor. Process the mixture and make sure to scrape the sides down if necessary.
Once the mixture is smooth, you can add the two avocados and CBD oil. Then you will need to process again, and gradually add the remaining two tablespoons of cold water. Lastly, you can divide the mouse evenly between four dessert cups. Add optional walnut to top. Chill them in the fridge before serving and be sure to enjoy them within 48 hours.
Coconut Raspberry CBD Energy Bites
CBD energy bites might be the best snack to have in the house because they’re sweet enough to count as treats, but they aren’t so decadent – there’s no worry about the guilt of overindulging. Dates are the perfect way to sweeten desserts because they are a whole food with minerals and fiber, and don’t seem to have the same addictive quality that refined sugars have.
These energy bites could count as a superfood, depending on what ingredients you decide to use. Sprouted seeds and hemp seeds are a great mixture to use for the base, coconut oil is used as a binder, and the dates are used to sweeten the dish. From this simple recipe, there are plenty of ways to spice it up or make them seasonal in flavor. In this particular recipe, 1 ml of a 3,000 mg tincture is used, resulting in 100mg of CBD for the entire batch, or less than 10 mg per serving.
- 1ml CBD oil tincture
- 2-ounce bag freeze-dried organic raspberries
- ¼ cup organic hemp seeds
- ½ cup sprouted organic pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Add the freeze-dried raspberries to a food processor and turn on high until the raspberries have been ground up into a fine powder – this should take about 20 seconds. Then, pour the raspberry powder into a bowl and set aside.
Next combine the hemp seeds, coconut powder, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, and CBD oil into the base of the food processor. Process on high for about 60 seconds, or until the ingredients have turned into coarse batter. Then, pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and shape the batter into energy bites using your hands, and roll each one in a coating of raspberry powder.
Place the energy bites into the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving to your guests. You can store these in your fridge and consume within seven days of making.
