Smoothies may already be your current go-to breakfast in the morning, or post-workout refuel in the evening. You probably already love them for the energy, protein, and nutrients they provide. Well, after hearing about the latest smoothie ingredient superstar—CBD—you’re going to be tempted to kick start your blender into overdrive.
Some of the benefits of adding CBD oil to your smoothies may include:
- soothe pain
- ease anxiety
- reduce inflammation
- recover from exercise
Mint Chocolate Chip CBD Smoothie
When you think smoothie, you might automatically think fruit. That doesn’t mean you can’t make them a little more indulgent now and again, though. Take this mint chocolate chip version for example. It borderline tastes like a milkshake, but is actually just made with not so bad for you ingredients like avocado, banana, tofu, peppermint extract and chocolate chips. Save this one for when you want dessert but don’t want the guilt.
Blueberry Hemp Oil Smoothie
Looking for a healthy way to boost your mornings? Whip up this delicious blueberry smoothie. Blueberries are often considered a super food because they are so antioxidant-rich. That means they can help protect you from aging, cancer, and can even help lower your blood pressure. Combined with just a teaspoon of CBD hemp oil, almond milk, a banana, and a dab of honey, this makes for a creamy and relaxing way to start your day.
CBD-Infused Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and Banana Smoothie
Need a smoothie recipe for after the gym? Try this winning peanut butter, chocolate, and banana combination. It is packed with protein from the peanut butter and almonds, so your muscles can recover and get stronger. Plus the CBD isolate it calls for will help reduce any inflammation and tension you might have post-exercise.
Dreamy Hemp Strawberry Rose Smoothie Bowl
Smoothies aren’t just for the glass anymore. Smoothie bowls are another delicious way to enjoy your favorite fruit blend topped with more fresh fruit (yep!) and other toppings like granola or coconut flakes—usually for breakfast. But this gorgeous hemp strawberry and cherry bowl is actually meant to be a pre-bed treat. The cherries are packed with melatonin (which helps you get sleepy) and the hemp oil will ease your anxiety so you can dream soundly.
