I typically make my own infused coconut oil from scratch using flower. But every once in a while, I like to take edibles found at the dispensary and go home and jazz it up my way.
This year marks 8 years since I decided alcohol wasn't for me and have found cannabis beverages to be a great way to celebrate in a similar manner. This year for Father’s Day, I made myself a wonderful Peanut Butter-Pretzel-White Chocolate Milkshake using Incredibles Peanut Butta Buddah Bar. Not only was this simple, but let's talk about how delicious this was. Cold, sweet, creamy...it was truly delectable. From start to finish it took 2 minutes to make, about 10 minutes drink, and had long lasting effects that carried me through the afternoon.
Beautiful milkshakes come from simplicity and quality products. Many in the cannabis industry know and use the slogan "fire in = fire out.” If you start with great ingredients you finish with a great product.
Here’s my milkshake recipe:
2 cups (or 1 pint) of your favorite ice cream
1/4 cup whole milk or your favorite milk substitution
An edible in the amount your edible mg tolerance allows. I put one whole 100mg bar into mine but this can vary based on your tolerance.
Add all the ingredients to your blender at the same time and use the pulse setting. Don't over churn, as this will cause your shake to melt faster.
Also, if you are hosting a party and want to make your milkshakes last longer before melting, add Cool Whip to your blended mix. Cool Whip has a stabilizer in it that will help keep the shake from melting as fast. I "highly" recommend playing with your cannabis treats and coming up with ways to incorporate them into your own creations!
At the end of the day there's no right or wrong way to have fun with your food. Take some risks and get creative! In the words of the chef I trained under for decade “Relax...it's just food.”
