One of the best things about CBD tincture is its versatility. It’s why so many cafes and bars are coming up with new CBD drink recipes every other day. What could be better than taking your favorite drink and making it even more relaxing? We’ve rounded up the best CBD drink recipes for every occasion.
CBD Drink Recipes: Coffee
Dr. Rachna Patel, author of The CBD Oil Solution has two excellent recipes for your morning cup of joe with a wellness boost incorporated:
A Bulletproof Morning
Bulletproof coffee features grass-fed butter, MCT oil or ghee for added healthy fats. This CBD-infused version can be made with any hot, freshly brewed coffee. Try it with flavored coffee beans like vanilla or chocolate almond for extra flavor. CBD and coffee are pretty much a match made in heaven!
2 cups freshly brewed hot coffee
1 tsp grass-fed ghee
2 servings of CBD oil, but no more than 1 tsp total sugar or other sweeteners to taste
- In a blender, combine the hot brewed coffee, grass-fed ghee, CBD oil, and sweetener. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until frothy.
- Pour into coffee cups and serve immediately with sweetener, if desired.
Whipped cream infused with CBD and a kiss of vanilla makes a sweet, creamy topping for this Viennese-style coffee. If you're not a coffee drinker, try it on hot cocoa or your favorite fresh fruits.
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 servings of CBD oil, but no more than 2 tsp total
3 cups freshly brewed hot coffee
Ground cinnamon, to garnish
- In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the cream, sugar, vanilla, and CBD oil. Using a mixer with a wire whisk attachment, beat on high speed until the cream forms soft peaks.
- Pour the hot coffee into 4 small cups, leaving a little space at the top of each cup. Add a large dollop of whipped cream to each cup, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve immediately.
