CBD can be added to everything from guacamole to gorditas and everywhere in between. From its renowned calming effects to better sleep, it’s no wonder we’re adding the cannabis compound to everything this Cinco de Mayo! Here’s our top recipes for a chill-filled fiesta! 

Cinco de Mayo is one of the first holidays people are excited to celebrate due to warmer weather and having a sense that summer is right around the corner. Cinco de Mayo has been around for years and many don’t know the origin of the holiday.

Cinco de Mayo represents the efforts Mexicans made over French forces during the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Chicano activists raised awareness of this holiday during the 1960s and since then, many people around the US and Mexico celebrate.

Whether you’re having family and friends over to celebrate or looking to spice up your regular Cinco routine, lost range.® has something for everyone. Before we head to the Horchata, here’s some reasons why you should include CBD into festivities this year…

Infusing CBD into Foods and Beverages

The history of cooking with cannabis dates as far back as the 10th century, but baking with CBD oil is a fairly new phenomenon. One of the first cannabis-infused drinks was in the form of a tea brewed in 1500 BC, China. That was over 3,500 years ago.

Fast forward to today, whether to settle your nerves or treat specific health issues, cannabis- and hemp-infused foods and drinks are the trendiest items in the market. By adding high-quality CBD to your party recipes, you can bring the amazing health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) into your Cinco De Mayo celebrations!

Here are some of the best recipes that we have for you to prepare and enjoy this Cinco De Mayo.

Another drink recipe that is absolutely fitting for the holiday is Horchata. Horchata is an iced rice and milk drink that is creamy and has a hint of cinnamon. Perfect for warm days, since it’s both refreshing and satisfying. 

Ingredients (makes 4):

How-to:

  1. In a blender, combine the rice and water. Blend for about 1 minute or until the rice is broken up. Let this sit overnight at room temperature or for at least 6 hours.
  2. Pour this mixture over a fine metal colander and into a pitcher. Throw away leftover rice bits. 
  3. Add in your milk, vanilla, almond, cinnamon, and sugar. Add 1ml (1 dropper full) of your tincture per serving, for this recipe it would be 4ml, or 4 dropper fulls. Mix well and then chill until ready to serve!
  4. To serve, pour over ice and add a cinnamon stick to stir. Remember that you can always add more CBD if desired!

 


CBD Infused Guacamole

Guac is perhaps one of the most important side dishes you can have at your Cinco De Mayo gathering. Everyone loves it, and it’s a healthy alternative compared to other dips on the market! 

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (more if needed)

  • CBD oil in desired strength (60mg for 10mg preserving)

How to:

  1. Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove pits. Scoop out flesh and add to the bowl.
  2. Add lime juice. Mash with fork until creamy but still chunky.
  3. On a cutting board, crush garlic clove with salt to make a paste. (Use a flat part of a knife, or just chop salted garlic.)
  4. Add CBD, incorporating evenly.
  5. Add tomato, cilantro, garlic/salt and diced peppers.
  6. Adjust to taste with additional salt, peppers and/or lime juice.
  7. Serve immediately, or lay plastic wrap directly on guacamole and refrigerate up to one day.


Simple CBD Honey Lime Glazed Fruit Salad

CBD Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Fruit Salad is always a hit, especially if your guests are looking for something on the healthier side. This Fruit salad recipe can be easily made for other occasions, including summer gatherings.

Fresh Fruit

  • 16 oz Strawberries
  • 8 oz Blueberries

CBD Honey Lime Glaze

How to:

  3. Separate the servings of the berry fruit salad and pour CBD honey lime glaze over each serving. We suggest 2 teaspoons of CBD honey lime glaze over each serving of fruit. This is roughly 12.5 mg of CBD per serving.


Churros with CBD Mint Chocolate Dipping Sauce

cbd recipes

Let’s face it, it’s not Cinco De Mayo without Churros. Our finger-licking CBD Mint Chocolate sauce is the perfect twist to this Mexican classic.

Ingredients:

For the Churros:

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Coating: 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the CBD Chocolate Sauce:

How to:

Make the churros:

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the water, sugar, salt and vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat. Stir in the flour, mixing until it forms a smooth ball.
  • Heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil (or any neutral flavored oil) in a large/tall stockpot set over medium-high heat (375ºF). Line a plate with paper towels.
  • Transfer the dough to a cloth pastry bag or heavy-duty plastic bag fitted with a large star tip (optional).
  • Pipe the dough over the pot of oil to a length of about 4 inches, then using scissors or a sharp knife, cut it so it releases into the oil. (Be cautious to avoid any oil splatters.) Pipe two to three churros into the oil at a time, frying them until they’re golden brown.
  • Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 2 minutes, then while they are still hot, roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and coating process until dough is all used up.

Make the CBD chocolate mint sauce:

  • Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl.
  • Warm (don’t boil) the heavy cream in small saucepan. Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 1 minute then stir in CBD to combine.
