CBD oils and infused products have hit the market and are gaining intensity on the wellness scene, even here in the South. Dare we say CBD is on its way to becoming mainstream?
We’ve been using CBD for a while now and love how it brings a more calmly focused vibe into our life. And there are so many ways you can use it throughout your day.
Our beautiful friend Laura over at Soul Addict has shared about all the benefits that CBD has brought into her own life, and she recently shared a CBD infused lemonade recipe with us that we’re really, really loving. Here’s how to make it…
SOUL ADDICT CBD LEMONADE
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (from approximately 6 lemons)
- 4 cups of cold water
- Optional: edible flowers, cara cara orange slices for extra high vibes and garnish
- Soul Addict CBD Elixir – use 2 to 4 servings (you can start with 2 servings of CBD or add up to 4 for individual servings per person, whatever feels best to you)
- 2 tablespoons of MCT oil or coconut oil (use 4 tablespoons of MCT or coconut oil if you use 4 servings of CBD)
- Coconut nectar or honey to taste
FUN FACT | Why do I need to use MCT or coconut oil for lemonade? MCT oil mixes best with the fatty acids found in our hemp CBD and helps the natural separation of CBD content blend better when infused into colder beverages like lemonade. Note that because ours is a whole-plant extract and contains all of hemp’s goodness, some natural separation will occur.
- Pour 1 cup of water and honey into a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, stirring frequently.
- Once boiled, remove from the heat and let it cool, then add the mixture to a glass pitcher.
- Add the lemon juice and the remaining water.
- For the CBD infusion, mix 2 to 4 servings of Soul Addict CBD Elixir, MCT or coconut oil and coconut nectar or honey to taste. Natural separation is normal; whisking it will help it to emulsify.
- Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to let it chill.
- Top with sliced cara cara oranges and edible flowers. Serve with ice cubes and your favorite people 🙂
