*Bonus: we’ve included some boozy CBD cocktail recipes at the bottom! CBD-infused cocktails have recently become a huge hit, and if you want to recreate this swanky trend at home, we’ve crafted some easy-to-recreate recipes that are sure to be a hit for any holiday party!*
CBD-Infused Whipped Cream
Put this CBD-infused whipped cream on your favorite pie, swirled into a mug of hot cocoa, or topping a pile of pancakes, and watch any of your favorite treats become a dose of zen. We seriously can’t recommend this stuff enough, plus it’s so easy to make!
There’s two ways to get CBD into your whipped cream: CBD oil, or CBD honey. Either way will work fine, and if you use CBD honey as your sweetener, you won’t need to add any other sugar.
1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon CBD honey, sugar, or maple syrup
.75mL of Grassroots Harvest 500mg/15mL Full-Spectrum CBD Oil (if not using CBD honey)
Optional: 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Optional: Place mixer bowl and whisk in freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to chill.
Pour ingredients into the bowl and whisk until medium to stiff peaks form.
Do not over beat, unless you’d like to make butter.
That’s it! It’s super easy to customize this recipe with your prefered sweetener, or with other flavors or spices if you want to experiment! This CBD-infused whipped cream goes great with just about everything, from waffles to ice cream sundaes. Who couldn’t use a dollop of calm?
Simple CBD Honey Toast
Wanna have the chillest brunch in town? CBD toast is incredibly easy to make, and almost impossible to get wrong. Move over avocado toast, there’s a new toast in town. There are a bunch of different ways to make CBD toast, but these are our favorite recipes ‘cause they’re easy to make, and don’t require any crazy ingredients.
Ingredients (for one slice of toast):
Bread (any bread will do!)
½ tablespoon-1 tablespoon CBD Honey, about ½ a tablespoon per slice of toast
Optional: Sliced banana or strawberry
Toast your bread, and immediately spread with butter. Top with desired amount of CBD honey and finish it off with sliced fruit, if you’d like! This is the simple toast you know and love, elevated. It takes no time to make, and the benefits of CBD will make it a sure hit. No frills, lots of chill.
CBD Honey & Ricotta Toast
Wanna step things up a notch? Take your CBD toast game to the next level with this delicious recipe.
Ingredients (for four slices of toast):
Bread, four slices (preferably baguette)
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for serving
½ cup ricotta
2 teaspoons CBD honey, about ½ a teaspoon per slice of toast
sea salt and black pepper
Optional: sliced banana or strawberry
Toast bread. Drizzle each piece with olive oil, then top with ricotta. Drizzle CBD honey over the ricotta, and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Top with more oil or some sliced fruit, if desired. The combo of ricotta and honey makes this toast a favorite of ours, it’s the perfect sweet treat to relax with.
Mint Tea With CBD Honey
TBH, you can and should add CBD honey to any tea you like, this just happens to be our favorite combo, especially in the cold weather! Simply brew your favorite kind of tea, and let it steep for several minutes before adding CBD honey. Boiling or close to boiling water is too hot for CBD, so letting it steep a bit is important. We recommend about a teaspoon of CBD honey per cup.
If you don’t have CBD honey, it’s easy to replicate these recipes using CBD oil instead! CBD oil can be added to regular honey if you want to make-your-own at home! You’ll want around .75mL of Grassroots Harvest 500mg/15mL Full-Spectrum CBD oil per serving of honey, and you might need to stir it a bit for even consistency.
CBD cocktails are a good idea year-round, but here’s two holiday cocktail recipes full of CBD-goodness. Tried and tested, these are good ‘til the last drop.
Spiked Apple Pie
(makes one serving)
1 oz . Vanilla Vodka
1 oz . Fireball Whiskey
4 oz . Organic Apple Juice
.75mL of Grassroots Harvest 500mg/15mL Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
Optional: Brown Sugar for the rim
Optional: Cinnamon Stick for Garnish
Combine vodka, whiskey, apple juice, CBD oil, ice, and a pinch of ground cinnamon in a shaker. Shake thoroughly, then strain so that no ice falls into the glass. If you’d like, you can use brown sugar around the edge of the glass, or add a cinnamon stick for garnish.
Hot Buttered Rum
(makes four servings)
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Optional: 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup spiced rum
2 cups boiling water
.75mL of Grassroots Harvest 500mg/15mL Full-Spectrum CBD Oil per mug
Optional: 4 sticks cinnamon, for garnish
- Make the batter: place the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and cloves in a small bowl. Mash together with the back of a spoon or a fork until well combined. Either use immediately to make mugs of Hot Buttered Rum, or cover and refrigerate for later.
- In each mug: place 2 tablespoons of the batter in each mug. Add 2 oz. of spiced rum and 6 oz. of boiling water to each mug, and stir until the batter has fully dissolved. Then, add .75 mL of Grassroots Harvest 500mg/15mL Full-Spectrum CBD Oil per mug.
- If you like, you can garnish with whipped cream (use CBD whipped cream for an extra dash of calm!), a cinnamon stick, or a sprinkling of nutmeg. Enjoy!
