We’ve all got that friend. Though they can buy soup, drinks, dinners, pizza, snacks, and other culinary products premade, they insist on getting creative in the kitchen. That’s okay! In fact, it’s preferable in many cases. Are you one of those do-it-yourself culinary creators? Are you also a fan of CBD?
Today, what with the legalization of CBD usage in many areas, edibles, oils, topicals, and more (containing CBD) are becoming exceedingly popular. Because ingesting CBD means experiencing its effects faster than through the use of topicals, many prefer edibles.
Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer in the kitchen or have a friend who is, if you also enjoy the benefits of CBD – and who wouldn’t – the following are some fun, delicious CBD drink ideas for you or your friends to try.
Milk and Milkshakes
Perfect for summer, a CBD milkshake is frosty and satisfying. You can make your milkshake super chocolatey, vegan, or fruity. As an example, here’s how to do a chocolate CBD shake: Blend the desired amount of CBD oil, vanilla, chocolate syrup, chocolate milk, and ice cream until smooth, at high speed. Pour into a glass. Sit back and enjoy. (Drizzle chocolate syrup on top, whipped cream, and sprinkles if desired.) Note: if you are making shakes for four people, the recommended dose is 30 mg of CBD oil for this recipe.
Not in the mood for a milkshake right now? Grab a big glass of CBD milk for a refreshing and healthy snack. To keep it delicious and fresh, make sure to refrigerate it. Grab your favorite milk or nondairy product, add the desired amount of CBD oil, and you’re all set.
Hot Chocolate, Tea, or Coffee
Once the weather turns cold and milkshakes are out of the question, brew a cup of your favorite tea or coffee and add the desired amount of CBD oil. Start your day off right! The fact that CBD oil comes in different flavors gives you the opportunity to get creative.
If you prefer hot chocolate over tea and coffee, consider using the desired number of drops of Mint Mocha CBD oil to kick your hot chocolate up a notch.
CBD Cocktails and Lemonade
The most popular method of making CBD cocktails is with tinctures. Oils can be used but may not mix well. Feel free to try both methods to see which works best for particular cocktails.
In some drinks, CBD syrup can or should be used. Lemonade is one of these. You’ll need 1 mg (or desired amount) CBD, 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin, 1 cup sugar, honey, or agave (your choice of sweetener) and, 1 cup of water. Add sweetener choice to simmering water, cover, and, for 20 more minutes, let it simmer. Stir in vegetable glycerin and keep stirring for approximately six minutes. Mix in your CBD after taking the pot off of the burner. Let it cool and pour it into your desired storage container.
To make lemonade, you will be mixing sparkling water, lemon juice, water, and your CBD syrup to taste. Some people like to add mint leaves or a little bit of basil before serving.
