One of the most flavorful ways to start your day is making a Minty Greens & Chocolate CBD Smoothie! Bright green and incredibly delicious, this recipe is packed with nutrition and protein to supercharge your morning. If you’re a chocolate lover, this scrumptious smoothie includes cacao nibs, but it’s not overly sweet. Blended with fresh mint leaves, banana, spinach, avocado, cinnamon, and honey, this recipe is guaranteed to satisfy the appetite.
To infuse this smoothie with CBD, Come Back Daily’s Full Spectrum Cool Mint CBD Oil Drops are an excellent addition and provide a delightful mint flavor that complements the other ingredients. Come Back Daily’s CBD Oil Drops are also incredibly potent, containing 50 milligrams of CBD per milliliter. Whether you prefer a high dose or low dose of CBD, simply add your preferred amount into the blender, then blend away! By blending, the machine does the work for you, breaking apart the CBD (or THC) oil droplets so they mix into the other liquids and ingredients seamlessly, creating a perfectly infused smoothie.
