CBD Milkshake Recipes to Cool You Down in the Summer Heat

15th July 2021

Does anything sound more delightful than sipping on a CBD milkshake on a warm summer’s day? Milkshakes are adored by many, particularly during the warmer seasons. They are also straightforward to make, with most of the ingredients available in your local grocery store.

What’s more, there are so many different flavours you can create. You can make traditional flavours like chocolate and strawberry. On the other hand, you can create more advanced ones, such as Oreo and Kinder Bueno.

In addition, you can alter the recipes to suit your own dietary needs. For example, for those who are vegan or dairy-free, you can opt for dairy-free ice cream and milk. It’s not difficult to find vegan options these days.

The same goes for any other dietary concerns you may have. In addition, adding CBD into your milkshake is also said to unlock a range of health benefits. So, have we convinced you to make your own CBD milkshakes this summer?

Below we will share some of our favourite CBD milkshake recipes.

How Were Milkshakes Invented?

It seems only right before jumping into the CBD milkshake recipes to address the fascinating history of these drinks. Milkshakes can be traced back to the 1800s; however, they weren’t the drink we adore today. At this time, the word milkshake was used to describe an eggnog drink created using whiskey.

This is particularly interesting given that milkshakes are commonly a drink for children. They were not child-appropriate during this time. In saying that, in the 1900s, milkshakes became what we know today.

In other words, the whiskey was replaced with milk, ice cream, and syrup, all combined. This created a delicious concoction that was entirely safe for people of any age to drink. It wasn’t until 1922 that making milkshakes became an easy task when the blender was invented.

The arrival of the blender assisted greatly in putting milkshakes on the map. By 1950, milkshakes were popping up everywhere across the globe. Today all sorts of establishments serve milkshakes and have invented a wide range of different flavours.

What CBD Product Should I Use in Milkshakes?

Before you whip out the blender, it is crucial to figure out what CBD product you should use in your milkshake recipe. There are so many different CBD products these days; it can be hard to determine which would suit you best. Usually, it is best to use water-soluble CBD products to stop the CBD and drink from separating.

However, since milkshakes are very thick, CBD oils and tinctures shouldn’t be a problem. There are lots of places you can purchase these CBD products; however, it is essential to buy from a reputable brand. We would recommend CBD Village.

They have many CBD oils and tinctures on their website, ideally suited for our CBD milkshake recipes. Now that you know what CBD product to use, let’s get into making these delightful creations!
