4 Healthy Recipes for Cannabis Edibles

on

Edibles are one of the more enjoyable ways to dose with cannabis. Though the dosing isn’t as exact or immediate as it might be by smoking, vaping or administering oils under the tongue, edibles make the process of absorbing cannabinoids a bit more fun and flavorful. Unfortunately, the most common edibles available pre-made in stores are loaded with sugar, salt and fat, which — while appetizing to those already suffering from the munchies — aren’t exactly conducive to a healthy, whole-foods lifestyle.

Fortunately, it is possible to make edibles from home, which means you can imbue some healthy foods with the power of cannabis. Here are four healthy recipes for delectable weed treats:

Frozen Canna-bananas

Sometimes it blows my mind how versatile bananas are. I use bananas to make bread, vegan ice cream, pancakes and more — and despite these recipes being low-fat and packed with nutrients, they taste utterly luxurious. Here is an easy stoner treat using bananas that takes just three ingredients and about a half-hour to make:

Ingredients:

  1. 1 banana, sliced in half
  2. 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
  3. cannabis oil or cannabutter (to your dosage)

Melt the chocolate chips and cannabis oil or cannabutter together in a double boiler over low heat, and stir until smooth. Dip the banana halves into the chocolate, or slice them into bite-sized pieces and coat entirely in chocolate. Place the chocolate-covered bananas on parchment paper and place in freezer. Once chocolate is hard, remove and enjoy.

Vegan Energy Nugs

You can buy regular cannabis nugs at any Arkansas dispensary, but you can only get these delicious and nutritious nug edibles from your own kitchen. Vegan and raw, these energy bites are perfect for waking, baking and seizing the day.

Ingredients:

  1. 2/3 cup cashews, separated
  2. 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  3. 1/2 cup pitted dates
  4. 1/2 cup maple, agave or brown rice syrup
  5. 1/2 cup almond butter
  6. 1/2 teaspoon. vanilla extract
  7. 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  8. 240 milligrams cannabis-infused oil

In a food processor, pulse a small handful of cashews until ground, and set aside. Pulse the sunflower seeds and remaining cashews until coarsely ground, and then add dates and pulse until well-combined. Add syrup, almond butter, vanilla, salt and cannabis oil, and pulse until mixture is smooth. Add small amounts of the first ground cashews into the mixture until dough-like. Then, form the mixture into golf ball–sized balls or nuggets, and freeze until firm. If desired, coat balls in mini chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit, oats or chia seeds.

Berry Cannabis Smoothie

Smoothies can be some of the healthiest foods you can eat — or they can be chock full of less-than-healthy ingredients. In truth, you can make any smoothie stoner-friendly with the addition of cannabutter, which you might be able to find in a dispensary but which you can always make at home. Here’s my favorite smoothie, which is fruity, sweet creamy and pretty much perfect:

  1. 2 tablespoons cannabutter
  2. 2 cups milk
  3. 1/3 cup half-and-half
  4. 1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
  5. 1 banana
  6. 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  7. 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  8. 2 teaspoons honey
  9. 3 ice cubes

Melt cannabis butter over low heat on the stove or in the microwave. Place all ingredients except ice cubes in blender, and blend until smooth — about 1 1/2 minutes. Stop the blender, add the ice cubes, and blend again until smooth.

Baked Kale Chips

If you bake them just right, kale chips can be indistinguishable from regular chips, except for all the extra vitamins and minerals they contain. These kale chips are extra special thanks to the cannabis-infused oil sprinkled on them while they bake. As with any cannabis cooking, you don’t want to subject your weed treats to too much heat for too long, or the cannabinoids will degrade. Plus, you don’t want to burn your chips before you chow down.

Ingredients:

  1. 8 ounces fresh kale, washed, cut into large pieces and de-veined
  2. 4 teaspoons cannabis-infused oil
  3. 1 teaspoon seasoning salt

Make sure the kale is completely dry before starting. In a large bowl, drizzle cannabis oil over kale, and mix to coat completely. Sprinkle seasoning salt, and toss. Spread kale in a single layer on two baking sheets, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container to retain crispiness.

You don’t have to subject yourself to yet another sickly-sweet cannabis candy to delight in the magic of edibles. With a little culinary creativity, you can make any healthy recipe 420-friendly — but you definitely need to be careful and cognizant of dosing to avoid a cannabis catastrophe.
