Whoever decided Father’s Day should be on the third Sunday in June had the right idea.
An excellent chance of sunshine means outdoor cooking is on the menu. And with an abundance of fresh, seasonal ingredients you can savor the flavor of summer.
Infuse some laid-back CBD goodness and you’ve got a recipe for making treasurable memories with dear ol’ dad. What a great way to kick off the summer grilling season!
While cooking over hot flames can be fun, we’re guessing you don’t want to be strapped to the grilling station all day on Father’s Day — or any day.
We’re here to tell you that you can have your BBQ and eat it, too. You just need the right recipes on your side. Better yet, make them CBD-infused recipes so the cannabinoids can help you stay chill while you master that extravagant burger patty flip.
Pull up a lawn chair and scroll down for CBD BBQ recipes fit for Father’s Day and summertime gatherings.
Note: CBD and these recipes are intended for adults only, so keep CBD and infused eats and drinks out of the reach of children. Be sure to clearly label any foods or beverages that contain CBD so everyone knows they’re infused with CBD.
Get the juices flowing with a drink so tasty, it could stand in as the appetizer.
Before you (or dad) object to a fruity blended faux cocktail, hear us out. This CBD drink has a few things going for it.
It’s also crazy simple to make. You can even make a pitcher to serve up family-style. If you do make a big batch, promise you’ll let everyone at the cookout know there’s CBD in the drink. A label is a good idea too, so there’s no confusion.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth. Serve in a chilled glass with a straw. Garnish with fresh fruit on a toothpick, and, if you’re feeling fancy, a little umbrella.
To make enough for you and three other adults, quadruple the ingredients. If folks want more or less CBD in their drink, let them add it to their drink after it’s been blended.
Now that your fist is full of a refreshing and tropical CBD infusion, you’ll be able to keep your cool when the grillin’ gets hot.
There’s a lot to focus on when you’re cooking over live flames and smoke. When it comes to sides, snacks, and sauces, make-ahead recipes are your BBBQF (best barbecue friend).
Enter: The make-ahead CBD barbecue sauce that does it all.
It’s sweet. It’s tangy. It’s infused with CBD. And it goes on anything that comes off a grill — and then some. The tropical CBD oil flavor blends nicely into the naturally-sweetened recipe. It just might beat your father’s favorite bottled BBQ sauce.
Whisk together all ingredients except for CBD in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Stir in CBD oil.
Brush over grilled meat, seafood, or veggies as soon as they come off the grill. CBD chicken wings, anyone?
Store leftovers in a labeled airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Makes 8 servings, with one-quarter of a CBD dose in a two-tablespoon serving.
Another make-ahead superstar makes an entrance. This icebox cake is a classic dad might remember, but with a vanilla-flavored CBD twist.
In case you didn’t know, icebox cakes have been a thing about as long as iceboxes (refrigerators) have been around. They involve cream or a creamy base, with additions like cookies, crackers, fruit, and nuts.
They’re also one of the most fuss-free desserts out there. This CBD cake recipe comes together in minutes. After some time to set in the freezer, it’s ready to serve.
Makes about 14 slices, which is a little less than one-third of a CBD dose per slice. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to one month. Don’t forget to add a label indicating CBD contents!
As with any substance, there are steps you should take to enjoy CBD responsibly.
