Mocha Hemp Pudding Pie

File Jan 07, 1 48 51 PM

I got a lot of requests on social media for this recipe after I posted this one simple picture. Happily, I wrote the recipe down.

Imagine chocolate, coffee, and hemp delivered as a fluffy pudding that slides just right on the tongue. A delicious way to get more antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids for dessert, breakfast, or anytime snack.

Mocha Hemp Pudding Pie

Crust:

1/2C walnuts

1/3C hempseeds

1/4C coconut oil, melted

1/8t salt

1-2T maple syrup

1T cacao powder

Pudding Filling:

2C cashews, soaked overnight

2T coconut oil, gently melted

1/4C raw cacao powder

1/4C espresso

1t vanilla

1/4C hemp seeds

3T maple syrup

  1. Pulse crust ingredients in a food processor or blender until fully mixed and crumb size. Press into the bottom of a pie pan.
  2. Blend all filling ingredients until smooth.
  3. Pour filling ingredients over crust and smooth to the edges with a spatula.
  4. Chill.
  5. Serve with chopped walnuts and hempseed sprinkled on top.

The filling is great all by itself too if you ever feel like skipping the crust. Hope you enjoy this one!

How To Cook With Hemp: The Visual Feast Of 2015

It has been a brutal week of migraines, intense muscle spasms, depression, and anxiety. At the end of it I know I’ve made it through the other side and can again reclaim my life which includes dusting off my laptop and writing year end wrap-ups for TwiceBakedinWA.

I have been going through my food photos from this past year and decided to just make a slideshow to share with you and inspire myself to keep focused on eating well through the holiday party season and into 2016.

Looking at these pictures is a positive reminder about the good things that can be done at every meal possible to look after my body.

I also did a little rough math and figured out that I consumed at least 25 pounds of hemp not to mention the pounds and pounds of raw cannabis matter I have eaten and juiced this year. So, grab a drink and watch How Cook Hemp For A Whole Year:

 

Does This Pumpkin Hemp Pudding Make Me Look Like An Activist?

Pumpkin Chia Hemp Pudding

Pumpkin Chia Hemp Pudding

Do I seem like a cannabis activist to you? I do write about cannabis but I don’t really consider myself an activist. My imagination thinks of activists or advocates as people rallying in the streets, regularly meeting with legislators, and being very outspoken about their beliefs. I think of myself as meekly sharing the health benefits of dietary cannabis and displaying positive images of a ‘normal’ person using it.

While it wasn’t my original intention when I started the blog, I’ve become aware that the very act of sharing my cannabis use with the world is a form of activism although I would like to think that I am just over here inspiring people to live a healthier lifestyle.

I am in love with the nutritional perfection of the mighty cannabis plant. I think people deserve to know that they can eat it for nutritional and health benefits without ever getting high. The thing is that you can’t really talk about hemp and cannabis without eventually bringing up the politics and legalities of it. You also can’t get people to be interested in changing the ridiculousness of prohibition without sharing the benefits of the plant and helping them understand that it is not the harmful drug we have purposely been misinformed about for decades.

This is what is swimming around in my brain these days. How can I, and we, effectively spread wellness with cannabis and hemp? Well, I’m starting by sharing the many ways to eat it.

Here, I give you a recipe that is perfect for November, breakfast, dessert, and your digestive system. Good health to you!

Pumpkin Chia Hemp Pudding

2C pumpkin puree

1/4 orange with peel, pureed

2T maple syrup

1t allspice

1/2t cardamom

1T cinnamon

1t vanilla

1C coconut milk

1/2C water

1/2C hemp seeds

1/2C chia seeds

  1. Combine all ingredients to form a thick soupy consistency.
  2. Chill in refrigerator overnight. The chia seeds will absorb most of the liquid and the finished product will be a thick pudding consistency.
  3. Enjoy frequently as breakfast and dessert.

‘The Cannabis Spa At Home’: A TwiceBaked Book Review

Making Cannabis Topicals at home.

Making Cannabis Topicals at home.

About a month ago I received a book in the mail from Sandra Hinchliffe, the Hempista, who has just published a book called The Cannabis Spa At Home. This is her second published book, a how-to guide for making marijuana infused lotions, massage oils, ointments, bath salts, spa nosh, and more.

I was so excited to receive it, read the whole book from cover to cover, and have already created two of the recipes. I made the, ‘Herbal Spa Jar Oil Jar’ that is still curing in my cupboard and will be ready to in two more weeks. I also made the healthy ‘European Sipping Chocolate’, to drink while I was making the massage oil. Yummy! The recipes were easy to follow and modify as needed.  Exactly what I would hope for from a quality recipe book.

I did have one minor personal dislike: The title of Chapter 3 is called ‘Let’s Get High on Bath Salts.’ While I fully understand that it is meant to just be a cute play on words, as somebody who is reading the book to find healing recipes, I found the words to be somewhat offensive and disrespectful for anybody and their families who may have died using the deadly synthetic drug commonly known as ‘bath salts.’ The rest of the book is so lovely that this odd title just stuck out like a sore thumb. So, I actually took a pen to my book and retitled it ‘Let’s get Highly Relaxed on Bath Salts.’

The book has inspired me to try making some kind of lemon lavender lotion or massage oil next. Actually it kind of makes me want to throw a topical making girl party and teach my friends how to do it too!

Thank you Sandra Hinchliffe for sharing such a beautiful piece of work with the world and inspiring us to look after ourselves. Keep up the great work!

May this week bring us all more movement and better flexibility.

The Monkey Brain Hemp Smoothie

It is Monday Morning Motivation where smoothies are made for breakfast and I am able to focus on my goals for the week.

This smoothie is a thick banana and chocolate shake that is nutrient rich, high in protein, and healthy fats. This combination of flavors and nutrients satisfies me in the moment and it provides me with long lasting energy.

The Monkey Brain Shake

1 banana

1tsp maca powder

3 tbsp hemp protein powder

1T coconut oil

1T hemp seed oil

2T raw cacao powder

1-2C coconut water

1oz raw cannabis juice

1-3 ice cubes (optional)

1) Blend.

2) Drink.

Chia Hemp Turtle Bites

Chia Hemp Turtle Bites

Dairy free, gluten free, egg free, and zero processed sugar. That describes the treat created when I tried to make a Hemp Turtle.  Those words also describe all of my food. It’s strict compared to most people I know and it takes commitment.

I rebel when necessary by making my own treats and reinventing food I’m craving to have hemp in it. Strange hobby, I know.

The Chia Hemp Turtle Bites in today’s recipe are a little tedious, require a chocolate/cookie mold of some sort, and will go fast. But they are easy to make, do not require an oven, and while not intended to be eaten in one sitting you would get a healthy dose of fiber, protein, and essential fatty acids if you did.

Chia Hemp Turtle Bites

1/4C coconut oil
1/4C raw cacao powder
1T raw honey
1C raw cashews, soaked
1/3C ground hemp and chia seeds
2t vanilla
1C medjool dates
1/3C pecans

1) In a double boiler, gently melt coconut oil, honey, and mix in raw cacao. Keep the heat low, you are only just melting it enough to mix it.

2) Pour a small layer of chocolate in your mold. Freeze to set.

3) Blend/process cashews until smooth, mix with ground hemp/chia seeds, vanilla, and dates.

4) Scoop hemp layer into mold on top of chocolate. Press a pecan half into the top and spoon another layer of chocolate on top. Freeze for a few hours to set.

5) Remove from freezer and let sit for a few minutes before serving.

Chia Hemp Bites

Notes:

1) The amount of filling that this recipe makes is a more than the chocolate will take you, depending on how you put them together.  I recommend using the extra to make more turtles or different kinds of cookie balls by adding a little coconut flour, and nuts or chocolate.

2) The next time I make these I will make the chocolate layer a little thinner for a better mouth melting experience.

3) The middle layer came out a little softer than intended, but it is still post worthy.

Thanks for reading!
