The holiday season is upon us and there are many reasons to celebrate. We have our family, friends and health! With family, time comes a lot of dessert time. If you’re feeling guilty about consuming all of these sweets, add some amazing benefits by incorporating CBD into your dessert recipe.
Consuming a CBD dessert is much like taking a supplement at mealtime, you are consuming beneficial phytocannabinoids along with fats, carbs and other micronutrients. By infusing your desserts with CBD, this naturally increases the bioavailability of CBD.
We've put together CBD-infused recipes for three of the best chocolate holiday desserts: hot chocolate, red velvet cake, and dark chocolate peppermint bark.
This CBD-infused hot chocolate is ideal for any chocoholic. It’s easy to make, requires few ingredients, and tastes just like your everyday delicious hot chocolate.
Mix together the chocolate, cocoa powder, and ½ cup of milk in a small saucepan over low heat.
Stir continuously until the chocolate is melted, then add the remainder of the milk along with the cinnamon and sea salt.
Stir in the sugar. Add natural flavored Sustainable CBD or peppermint flavored for a holiday twist.
Pour the hot chocolate into a mug. Top with whipped cream and marshmallows if you’re feeling extra sweet!
Who doesn’t love red velvet cake? Softer than most cakes, fluffy, buttery and moist, there’s only one thing that can improve the original red velvet cake – and that’s CBD! This is the perfect dessert to make for any holiday gathering.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Use parchment paper to cover three 8 inch cake pans and
Slowly pour the wet ingredients together with beaten eggs into a bowl. All dry ingredients should be mixed together in a separate bowl. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry.
Pour mix equally into cake pans.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
7. Frosting: Mix the cream cheese and butter together, and slowly add powdered sugar (to avoid clumping).
8. Add the vanilla and beat everything together until it’s smooth.
9. Once the cakes are completely cooled, simply frost and decorate.
This mood-boosting recipe is loaded with dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is abundant in magnesium, an “anti-stress mineral” that helps you release tension, sleep better and boost your mood. This recipe combines dark chocolate, peppermint, and CBD to create a healthy, mouthwatering treat that's easy to make, tastes delicious, and satisfies sweet cravings.
Chop the dark chocolate into chunks and melt over a double boiler, or in 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Fold in peppermint CBD.
Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and use a rubber spatula to spread chocolate evenly until about 1/4 inch thin.
Sprinkle the crushed peppermint on top.
Allow to cool completely (at least 2-3 hours) or for 30 minutes in the fridge. Break and serve!
