Total Servings and Time Required:

Servings: 2

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients Required:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3 frozen bananas
  • Fresh Mint leaves, you can also use peppermint oil as its substitute
  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 cups Almond milk
  • 1.5 Tbsp Spirulina, you can also use chlorella as its substitute
  • CBD, as per prescription.

Steps To Follow:

Here’s how you can make your own refreshing CBD mint milkshake:

Step 1: Blend The Bananas

Add the frozen bananas to the blender ad give it a good mix. Blend it for 10-15 seconds till the bananas have turned into a smooth paste. The best part about using frozen bananas is that they won’t ripe further once you have frozen them.

So, if you have got ripped bananas or even a bit over ripped bananas you can store them for making this smoothie.

Pro tip: Use small chunks of frozen banana otherwise it might affect your blender’s motor.

Step 2: Blend the Ingredients

Add the almond milk into the bananas, cacao nibs, maple syrup, and mint leaves as well.  However, if you are using peppermint oil you can add a drop or two and then add some more drops as per your taste.

The next ingredient that is up on the list is spirulina, which is loaded with a lot of minerals. You can skip this ingredient or even substitute it with chlorella or a bowl of greens that you love!

Step 3: Add CBD To The Mix

Once your milkshake is ready add CBD oil to it and give it a proper stir. Make sure that the oil has properly dissolved in the entire milkshake. If CBD doesn’t get a proper carrier it might lose its effect and can even taste bad.

You can also just blend it as it will get properly mixed with the rest of the ingredients.

Step 4: Garnish It

Add some mint leaves on the top before serving. Keep it in the refrigerator for a few minutes before serving it.
