Coco-Passion Fruit CBD Popsicles with Pineapple and Wild Raspberry by The Herb Somm
This summer CBD recipe is featured In The Ultimate Guide to CBD: Explore the World of Cannabidiol, a CBD recipe book by Jamie Evans the Herb Somm and published by Fair Winds Press of Quarto Publishing Group.
During the peak of summer when you’re craving something cold, surprise your friends with this tasty indulgence. This CBD popsicle recipe is almost as good as your next island getaway! Tropical fruits are the theme for this recipe, and I couldn’t think of a more perfect addition than CBD coconut oil. The flavors blend perfectly to create this low-dose frosty treat.
Servings: 6 Popsicle’s
Target Dose: 9 mg CBD | .67 mg THC per pop (using DIY CBD Coconut Oil) or 11 mg CBD per pop (using commercially made CBD oil, see note below)
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Standing Popsicle mold kit
- Popsicle sticks
- 4″ x 6″ (10 x 15 cm) cellophane bags
- ½ cup (65 g) fresh raspberries
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice
- ½ cup (85 g) pineapple chunks
- ½ cup (120 ml) passion fruit juice (preferably not from concentrate)
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) liquified CBD Coconut Oil (see note below)
- ¾ cup (175 ml) canned cream of coconut
- ¾ cup (175 ml) unsweetened coconut milk
Add the raspberries, lemon juice, pineapple, passion fruit juice, and CBD coconut oil to a blender. Blend, then empty the mixture into a clean container, and set aside.
Clean your blender, then blend the cream of coconut and coconut milk together. Set aside. Divide the CBD–fruit juice mixture evenly into 6 popsicle molds. Note: this is the infused portion, so spreading evenly is key! Layer the coconut cream milk on top. Insert 6 popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.
The next day, remove the pops from the molds. To do this, fill a mug with warm water and then dip each mold into the warmed water for a few seconds to help slide the popsicles out. Place them into cellophane bags and then store in a zip-top freezer bag. Immediately wash the molds and create another batch if needed.
Note: If you don’t have time to make your own CBD coconut oil, you can still incorporate CBD into this recipe by adding your favorite commercially made CBD oil. Simply add 2 droppers full (66 mg CBD) of unflavored CBD oil of your choice (preferably made with coconut MCT oil) into the blender, and then follow the recipe as directed.
