As the holiday season rolls in with its flurry of festivities, many of us look for ways to infuse our celebrations with something special. This year, why not bring the wellness benefits of CBD into your holiday culinary creations? From soothing beverages to delectable treats, CBD can be a wonderful addition to your festive fare.
In this post, we'll explore how to incorporate CBD into your holiday recipes, featuring a special drink that's perfect for winter evenings: our CBD-Infused Cinnamon Vanilla Eggnog.
Why Include CBD in Your Holiday Recipes?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is known for its potential to promote relaxation and stress relief — something we all could use more of during the hectic holiday season. When added to food and drinks, CBD can help create a sense of calm and well-being, making your holiday gatherings even more enjoyable.
CBD-Infused Cinnamon Vanilla Eggnog
Let's start with a classic holiday favorite — eggnog. We've given it a twist, not just for an extra flavor, but for an extra feeling of tranquility and cheer. Here’s how you can make this festive and soothing drink:
- 4 cups of whole milk
- 1/2 cup of heavy cream
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 vanilla bean pod (split and seeds scraped)
- 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- 5 eggs, separated
- 2/3 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 dropper of Rainer Wellness Vanilla or Cinnamon CBD Tincture
- Whipped cream and additional spices for garnish
- Combine milk, cream, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg in a saucepan and bring to a low simmer.
- Whisk egg yolks and sugar until creamy, then slowly mix in the milk.
- Cook the mixture on low heat until thick, then cool slightly and add CBD tincture.
- Beat egg whites to soft peaks and fold into the mix.
- Chill, serve garnished with whipped cream, and enjoy!
Tips for Cooking with CBD
- Start Small: If you’re new to cooking with CBD, start with smaller doses and adjust according to preference.
- Don’t Overheat: High temperatures can diminish the effectiveness of CBD. Add it at the end of your cooking process.
- Quality Matters: Use high-quality, lab-tested CBD products like those from Rainer Wellness for the best results.
Other CBD-Infused Holiday Ideas
Beyond eggnog, consider adding CBD to other holiday dishes. Some ideas include:
- Drizzling CBD oil over roasted vegetables.
- Adding a few drops to your holiday cookies or brownies.
- Infusing CBD into your homemade salad dressings.
Incorporating CBD into your holiday cooking is a creative way to enhance relaxation and wellness during the festive season. Whether it's through a comforting cup of CBD-infused eggnog or a delightful treat, CBD can add a special touch to your holiday gatherings.
Remember, the key is to have fun and enjoy the process of bringing wellness to your holiday table. Happy holidays and happy cooking!
