Raw Cannabis Smoothie

How to Make a Raw Cannabis Smoothie

Creating a raw cannabis smoothie is much easier than you think. Once you have all the ingredients, the process is straightforward and quick. Now you have no excuse not to get your daily dose of fresh fruit and vegetables.

 

Here are a few top tips to get you started:

 

Blend the mixture rather than juicing it. Juicing can cause you to lose a lot of the cannabinoids that are commonly stored in the plant’s fiber.

Fresh is best. When making a ‘regular smoothie,’ wouldn’t you pick the freshest ingredients if you could? Therefore, it makes sense to use the freshest cannabis leaf for your raw cannabis smoothie. If you’re using dried and decarboxylated bud, the non-intoxicating THCA has probably degraded into THC!

Adding a second vegetable juice will cut the bitterness of the raw cannabis for an extra-tasty smoothie!

In terms of ingredients, we recommend always going organic.

Always wash all produce before making your smoothie.

 

 

4 Raw Cannabis Smoothie Recipes

1 – Simply Green

The Simply Green raw cannabis smoothie is packed full of amazing, fresh ingredients. It provides you with a nutrient-dense and delicious smoothie you will love! Here’s how to throw it together.

Ingredients

5 handfuls of spinach

½ cucumber

3 kale leaves

1 Fuji apple

7 large cannabis fan leaves

½ lemon

Put these ingredients into your blender and blitz them together to create your delicious and healthy smoothie!

Note: As you can see, this recipe calls for marijuana fan leaves. They are full of vitamins and minerals but contain minimal THCA and CBDA. If you want more of these cannabinoids, replace the leaves with raw cannabis buds.

 

2 – Banana Dream

Ingredients

1 large banana, peeled & sliced

2 ½ cups of almond milk

4 tablespoons cocoa

½ cup peanut butter

¼ cup chopped fresh cannabis

Make sure you use a low setting at the start. Then you can switch to a higher setting to deliver a smooth and delicious smoothie. Believe us, the banana adds an extra “tropical” element that sets this recipe apart from all the others.

 

 

3 – Cannabis Strawberry Banana Smoothie

If you want to add even more fruit, this is the recipe for you! The addition of strawberries, coconut, and banana to the raw cannabis gives you a healthy start your day.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons of raw cannabis

1 frozen banana

½ cup frozen strawberries

3 tablespoons of shredded coconut

½ cup thin vanilla yogurt

¼ cup coconut or dairy milk

A few ice cubes

Melt the cannabutter in a small saucepan on very low heat. Once the butter is fully melted, set it aside. Place everything except the ice cubes into a blender and pour the melted cannabutter on top. Blend the mixture until it is smooth, add the ice cubes, and blend again until you’re happy with the consistency.

4 – Bhang

In case you weren’t aware, bhang is an edible cannabis drink that retains enormous popularity in rural India, its place of origin. It is a drink with many variations, and as you’ll see, it requires a little more preparation than the other recipes. However, it is absolutely worth it!

Ingredients

Up to ½ ounce of raw cannabis

3 cups of warm milk

2 cups of water

½ cup sugar or honey

½ tsp ground cardamom

½ tsp ground anise

½ tsp rosewater

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground fennel

¼ tsp garam masala

Pistachios, mint leaves, rose petals, or chopped almonds to garnish

 

How to Make Bhang

  •  Heat the water until it boils, remove from heat, and add the raw cannabis. Steep the marijuana for around seven minutes.
  • Strain the plant matter using a cheesecloth or muslin. Squeeze the plant material until you remove all the liquid. Collect the water and leave it aside for now.
  • Grind the plant matter using a mortar and pestle along with two teaspoons of milk. Slowly add more milk and keep squeezing the flowers until you have used around half a cup of the milk. Set aside this liquid.
  • Add any garnishes you have and grind them with more milk.  Keep grinding until you form a fine paste. Collect this extract and remove any remaining fibers or residue.
  • Combine the liquids with the rest of the ingredients. Mix everything thoroughly, and leave to chill.
  • If you want to make bhang lassi, add a tablespoon of coconut milk and ½ a teaspoon of grenadine. An authentic lassi also includes curds, whey, or yogurt.
