Do you have a sweet tooth, or are you more the savory type? Either way, there’s one ingredient that can add a much-needed kick to your favorite dish: CBD oil!

You’ve added this do-all botanical to your medicine cabinet, but now it’s time to find a spot for it in your kitchen cabinet. Earthy and subtle, it helps elevate your beloved breakfast, lunch, or dinner entree with ease. 

People have been cooking with cannabis for centuries, but adding CBD oil to the mix is a relatively modern idea. Thankfully, it’s easy to get started. Today, we’re sharing five delectable recipes that should be added to your regular rotation this week!

Understanding Dosage

As you read these CBD recipes, you’ll notice that we didn’t include a specific measurement of CBD oil in any of them. This is because what constitutes “one dose” for you will vary greatly from your neighbor, your colleague, or your family member.

If you’re new to CBD, it’s best to start with a low dose and gradually work your way up. For most people, this will be between 20mg and 40 mg per day. Once you can accurately gauge how that dose affects you, you can slowly add 5mg per day until you reach your perfect level!

1. Zesty Guacamole

Mexican food is beloved around the world, known for its trademark, bold flavors. From enchiladas and tacos to tamales and fajitas, there are plenty of dishes to love and enjoy.

However, anyone knows that one the best parts about visiting a Mexican restaurant are the chips! While we adore all kinds of salsa, let’s talk about another dipping delight: guacamole!

Made of avocadoes, onions, lime juice, and a variety of spices, it can be a side dish or mixed into your main entree. It’s creamy, flavorful, and gluten-free. Plus, it’s also vegan-friendly!

CBD oil is a great addition to this dish, and brings out the bright flavors perfectly.

Ingredients You Need

To make your own CBD-infused guacamole at home, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 ripe avocadoes, medium-sized
  • 1 lime
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 10 cherry tomatoes or two small tomatoes
  • Desired dose of CBD oil (like our Full-Spectrum CBD in Hemp Oil)

Optional ingredients include:

  • 1/2 jalapeno
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro

Directions to Follow

First, peel, half and seed the avocadoes. Then, place them in a large mixing bowl and gently mash them to your desired consistency. A fork works great!

Next, add in your spices. If you’re using the cilantro and jalapeno, then add them in now. The CBD oil should go on last.

Once everything is in the bowl, stir all of the ingredients to combine. You can serve this fresh, but it’s best chilled. Try to plan ahead and make it about two hours ahead of time. Simply cover the bowl with plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge until it’s time to eat!

2. Creamy, Chocolate Cheesecake Bites

Any time you combine sweet cream and rich chocolate with delicate cheesecake, you’re sure to have an instant winner.

That’s especially the case with this fantastic recipe, which only sounds indulgent. In reality, the tiny bites are small enough that you won’t feel any guilt as you pop two or 10. If your childhood included plenty of Oreos dipped in ice-cold milk, you’ll love the flavors of this dessert.

Ingredients You Need

To wow your guests with a treat they’ll talk about for days, you’ll need the right ingredients. Here’s what to grab:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 5 drops vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • Desired dose of CBD oil

Directions to Follow

Begin by preheating your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Then, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and a little salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir everything together to combine. Then, mix in the egg and the coconut oil. Stir again. 

Next, transfer the dough to a flat surface coated in parchment paper. Scrape out any excess dough from the bowl, and spread it out to about 1/2-inch thick. To create the bites, you can simply cut the dough into small, 2-inch squares. You can also use cookie cutters, but make sure the shapes you choose don’t exceed two inches in width. 

Transfer your pieces to a baking sheet, and pop them in the oven! Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until it looks a little crispy. Let them cool, and then crumble them up and place them in a nearby bowl. 

Now, it’s time to make the cheesecake portion! In a large bowl, mix the butter, cream cheese, and CBD oil together. When everything is combined, fold in half of the cookie mixture. 

Finally, use an ice cream scooper to scoop out the mixture into individual balls. Roll each ball in the other half of the cookie crumbs, and set aside. Chill the bites in the fridge and enjoy any time you want a sweet snack!

3. Parmesean Mashed Potatoes

These might just be the best three words you could ever pair together. Parmesean cheese adds a slightly nutty, sharp bite to creamy, delicate mashed potatoes. The result is a weeknight side dish that you could easily heap onto your plate and turn into a full meal.

This is comfort food at its finest, made even more comforting with the addition of CBD oil. 

Ingredients You Need

One of the best parts about this dish is that it uses pantry staples you already have at home! When you’re ready to dig in, gather these ingredients:

  • Eight whole, russet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Desired dose CBD oil

Directions to Follow

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Next, boil your potatoes until they’re soft and ready to mash. As a general rule to follow, you can usually get about two cups of mashed potatoes per single, whole potato. That means that this recipe will yield a total of 16 cups of mashed potatoes.

While they’re still warm, mash the potatoes until they’re soft and creamy. Then, add in the butter, whipping cream, 1/2 cup parmseasn cheese, salt and pepper. Top the mixture with your dose of CBD oil. Our Broad-Spectrum CBD in Olive Oil is a great addition to this recipe!

Use a mixer to combine everything until smooth and pureed. Then, transfer them to a large, glass baking dish. To make sure the potatoes don’t stick, coat the glass with baking spray beforehand! Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese on top of the potatoes.

Bake the potatoes in the oven until they get a little brown on top. Cool them a little before serving, and dig in!

4. Golden Penne Pasta

While we’re on the subject of carbs, let’s talk about everyone’s other guilty pleasure: a piping-hot bowl of pasta!

While you can’t go wrong with macaroni, spaghetti, or bowtie noodles, the cylindrical shape of penne makes it the ideal vessel for soaking up any kind of delicious sauce you pour on top. 

Ingredients You Need

This dish only looks and sounds elegant. It’s actually easy to throw together for quick meal. The next time you’re hosting a dinner party or need to bring a meal to a friend, give it a shot! Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • One small container button mushrooms (about 8 ounces)
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Two medium tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Four cups fresh spinach
  • Your favorite marina or vodka sauce
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 12 ounces penne pasta 
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • Desired dose CBD oil

Directions to Follow

Start by preparing your vegetables. Finely mince the garlic, slice the button mushrooms, and chop the tomatoes. Then, cook the pasta according to the directions on the box and set it aside. 

Then, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, along with a pinch of the red pepper flakes. If you like it spicy, add two pinches! Cook this mixture until the garlic gets soft, which should happen after about two minutes. 

Next, gently stir in your mushrooms, followed by the tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

After five minutes, the mushrooms should begin to shrivel as they lose their water. When this happens, add the spinach and put a cover on the skillet. Wait for the spinach to wilt (about two minutes) and remove the lid.

Then, stir in 1/2 cup of your preferred marinara sauce. Vodka sauce also works great in this recipe!

Take the skillet off the heat and let it cool for about five minutes. While you’re waiting, go ahead and mix your dose of CBD oil into the Greek yogurt. Stir this mixture into your veggie/spinach sauce, and toss in the penne. 

When everything is evenly coated, you’ve got a meal! Add the parmseasn cheese on top right before you serve, and watch it melt beautifully into the bowl. 

5. CBD Mint Julep

As the temperatures creep up and the days get longer, there’s nothing like hanging out on the front porch with a cool cocktail in hand. This CBD mint julep is refreshing, satisfying and just the right amount of tangy. 

Ingredients You Need

When you’re ready to kick your relaxation mode into high gear, it’s time to grab these fresh ingredients:

  • 2.5 ounces of bourbon
  • 2 sugar cubes (or 1 ounce of homemade simple syrup)
  • Desired dose of CBD oil
  • Fresh mint sprigs

Directions to Follow

First, place your dose of CBD oil into a chilled glass. If you want to be extra fancy and traditional, opt for a julep glass instead. Then, place the mint leaves and sugar cubes inside the cup. 

Using a muddler, muddle the mint and sugar together. Soon, you should begin to smell the enticing aroma of fresh mint! When that happens, slowly pour in the bourbon. 

To make sure the drink stays cool, add crushed ice until the bourbon comes to the top of the glass. Stir it all together until it becomes frothy and the glass gets frosty. Top it with a few sprigs of mint, then sip and enjoy!

Non-Alcoholic Version

Prefer to make this drink non-alcoholic? No problem. This drink is just as delicious without the bourbon! 

In this case, just replace the bourbon with ginger ale. You may find that a splash of lemon juice at the end gives it that perfect zing!
