Morning: Make a CBD-Infused Breakfast with Create CBD Powder
Start your holiday off on the right foot with a delicious CBD-infused breakfast parfait! Layer it like a trifle and garnish with your favorite fruit and granola. To add a little patriotic flair, follow the recipe below for a red, white, and blue twist on this early-morning favorite.
Vegan Red, White, and Blue CBD Yogurt Parfait
- ½ cup plain dairy-free yogurt of choice (coconut, almond, or soy)
- 1 sachet berry-flavored Create CBD Powder
- 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1-2 Tbsp granola of choice
- Fresh, organic berries to garnish
- Separate the yogurt and set aside ¼ cup.
- Mix berry-flavored Create CBD powder into ¼ cup of yogurt.
- Mix chia seeds into berry yogurt.
- Layer CBD yogurt and plain yogurt in your serving dish of choice for a “stripes” pattern, or swirl with a butter knife or spoon.
- Top with granola and berries as desired.
Afternoon: Cool Off and Recharge with Build CBD Powder
Water sports and other outdoor activities are popular on the 4th of July. It’s important to take breaks throughout the hot afternoon to rehydrate, cool down, and recharge. Our citrus-flavored Build CBD powder can help you do that.
You can mix Build with filtered water, orange juice, lemonade, sparkling water, or coconut water (to replenish lost electrolytes). Just stir or shake, drink, and get back to business. (Hint: this is a great time to reapply your sunscreen before you head back to your activities.)
Evening: Relax and Enjoy the Fireworks with CBD-Infused Cocoa
After a long, fun, and exhausting day, it’s time to wind down and watch some fireworks. What better way to top off the day than with a chocolatey CBD treat?
Because of its rich, MCT-oil formulation, our Dream CBD Powder must be dissolved into hot water. But in the summer heat, it might not be ideal to drink something hot! Here’s a delicious alternative.
Vegan CBD-Infused Iced Cocoa
- ½ cup hot water
- 1 sachet Dream CBD Powder
- Ice cubes
- ½ cup dairy-free milk
- Heat water in a mug for 45-60 seconds.
- Stir in CBD powder with a small whisk and let cool.
- Fill glass with desired amount of ice cubes.
- Pour milk over ice.
- Add CBD cocoa to your glass and stir.
- Add more ice cubes as needed.
