Quick-Blitz CBD Matcha Protein Smoothie

If mornings aren't your cup of tea, but are looking for a quick kick of sorts, this Quick-Blitz Matcha Protein Smoothie is your answer. Packed with anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, this smoothie will be the healthiest smoothie you make in 45 seconds. Whether you need a wave of serenity before a client meeting or need a dose of detox after a wild weekend, you can count on this to boost and then some.

We've used MONDO in our recipe, an all-natural cannabis that instantly dissolves, so your smoothie won't be left with a gritty texture.

 

Directions

1. Blend together until smooth or your favourite consistency
2. Sip & Enjoy

 

Ingredients:

2 tsp ceremonial grade Matcha powder
1/2 cup milk or milk substitute (great choices include cashew milk, almond milk, rice milk, oat milk, coconut milk or soy milk)
1/2 frozen banana
Handful of spinach (for green smoothie, opt for blueberries for a tangier punch of a smoothie)
Natural sweetener (substitutes for sugar include, agave, maple syrup, honey, coconut nectar, cane sugar)
1 scoop MONDO (their new CBD powder is a beaut, if we do say so ourselves)
Handful ice cubes

Keep Calm and Granola On

Make this CBD-infused granola in bulk to keep as your new pantry staple. Just be sure to store it in a cool, dry place so that you get the perfect amount of crunch, the next time you want a super zen morning. Don't know how to eat granola? We like to sprinkle it over greek yogurt with peaches in the summer ( a drizzle of honey makes it that much more delish). We've also been known to just eat it by the handful. We're not the type to judge if that you'r style.

We opted to use Pure Phyto's CBD + PURE oil because we know they're vegan and made with only two ingredients: Cannabidiol and medium chain triglycerides, also known as MCT Oil

 

ingredients

3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup honey, agave or maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp coconut oil
Few drops Pure Phyto CBD + PURE oil
1 cup mixed nuts & seeds

directions

1. Preheat oven to 160°C
2. In a large bowl, combine your oats, nuts and seeds with the cinnamon and set aside.
3. In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil, CBD oil and your natural sweetener of choice until infused and fragrant.
4. Toss oats and melted oils together
5. Spread your granola mixture in an even layer on a greased baking tray
6. Toast for 10-15 minutes until just golden
7. Enjoy warm or store in cool, dry place
