CBD recipes aren’t difficult to make (or find), either. That’s because there are so many recipes out there that already involve some type of oil, including recipes for both baked goods and savory entrees.
And to transform your favorite recipes into good-for-you CBD recipes, all you have to do is mix some of your favorite CBD oil with the regular oil (such as olive oil or avocado oil) that the recipe calls for.
Why should you try CBD oil recipes?
CBD is known for its ability to promote overall physical, mental and emotional health. Many people use CBD to help combat stress and anxiety, manage the symptoms of pain or improve sleep. If we’re being honest, we could all probably use a little help in these areas.
However, adding yet another “thing” to your already hurried morning routine isn’t all that appealing. So, instead of taking a CBD supplement separately, you can fold it into your meal-prep routine.
In this article, you’ll find plenty of inspiration to fill out your weekly meal schedule with delicious CBD oil recipes.
Hungry yet? Let’s dig in.
Classic basil pesto with CBD
Pesto’s rich and earthy flavor is the perfect delivery system for CBD oil. (And who doesn’t love pasta?)
We’re fans of this classic basil pesto recipe from the vegetarian food blog, Cookie & Kate. It calls for pine nuts, olive oil, fresh basil, fresh garlic, and parmesan.
To add the benefits of CBD oil to this recipe, simply mix in a liberal amount of CBD oil into your olive oil (see below for CBD olive oil recipe).
Swirl your homemade CBD pesto into angel hair or slather it on a sandwich, and you’re set for a fresh and healthy CBD-infused meal.
Greek salad dressing: a CBD olive oil recipe
Mix regular olive oil with a few drops of your favorite CBD oil in this traditional Greek salad dressing recipe from California Olive Ranch.
You’ll also need garlic, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and pepper—along with an assortment of colorful veggies, greens and a flavorful and crumbly cheese like feta.
Pro tip: All the savory deliciousness in this recipe would be enhanced by adding a lightly flavored CBD oil, like lemon-lime or peppermint.
CBD oil smoothie recipe with mango and kale
If you’d rather drink than eat your CBD, smoothies are your best bet. They’re ideal for adding CBD oil because, unlike in other beverages, oil won’t sit on top of the liquid. It’ll be blended into the fruits so that you won’t even be able to detect it in the taste or texture.
This healthy smoothie recipe from Simple Green Smoothies is a great summertime refresher. Blend fresh mango, kale, coconut milk, and pineapple together with your daily serving of CBD oil for a super-powered breakfast-on-the-go.
Coconut Blondies: a CBD coconut oil recipe
Coconut oil is considered to be one of the best carrier oils for CBD because it binds most completely with CBD. That means that you can get the most potent benefits possible.
This blondie recipe using coconut everything comes from Sugar-Free Londoner. Made with coconut milk, coconut flour, and coconut oil, it’s sugar-free and keto-approved. We suggest making it even better for you (and tastier) by mixing in a generous amount of peppermint CBD oil to your coconut oil.
Can you use Soul CBD Oil Drops in CBD recipes?
For another added benefit, Soul CBD Oil Drops are based in MCT oil. What is MCT oil? Glad you asked. MCT oil, as scientific as it might sound, is actually just a purified extraction of coconut oil.
Only, unlike most coconut oils, MCT oil won’t give your food that coconut-y flavor or smell, and it’s more likely to provide much-needed energy. A win-win.
