Independence Day is upon us. My neighborhood has been blowing off fireworks for the past week, the weather is supposed to actually be hot on the 4th this year, and I have been wearing red, white, and blue all week to get in a festive mood. It is time to make popsicles.
The goal: All natural sugar free, medicated popsicles that are red, white, and blue to relieve pain, brighten your mood, and be more appreciative of your freedoms in this country.
Red, White, and Blue Cannabis Popsicles
Makes 4 popsicles (All measurements are approximate and will vary according to the mould size.)
-1/2C cherries, pitted
-about 1C coconut milk
-5 tsp cannabis coconut oil (I used just a little over 1tsp per popsicle based on the serving potency of this particular oil.)
1) Blend cherries with a about 1/4C coconut milk and 1/3 of the cannabis coconut oil. Spoon in to fill the first 1/3 of the popsicle mould.
2) Blend banana with about 1/3C coconut milk and 1/3 of the cannabis oil. Spoon into mould.
3) Blend blueberries with coconut milk and the last of the cannabis oil. Spoon into mould.
Notes: If you want your popsicles to be pretty it helps to keep the fruit purees on the thick side. I left this batch on the thinner side and the layers totally mixed more than I initially planned, oops. I also added the oil to the second layer in the mould rather than the blender when I made this batch because I forget to add it until the banana puree was already in the mould, double oops. It left a mini green layer which is probably a good thing so nobody confuses these with the multitude of non-medicated popsicles I have been making this week. If you end up having more puree than popsicle mould, put the rest in a ice cube tray- great for adding to smoothies.
There you have it. A healthy, sugar-free, medicated, sweet treat that will cool you down and chill you out.
Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
