In the summer months, the best way to enjoy a bit of cannabis is to make your own cannabis-infused ice cream. That way, you can cool off and not have to worry about getting too hot when you smoke. It is a delicious dish, and it offers just a hint of vanilla. At the same time, it is cool and minty. This is perfect if you are needing a cool, sweet treat.
What You Need to Make Cannabis-Infused Ice Cream
This has a short ingredient list, which makes this easy to make. You just need marijuana butter, vanilla, condensed milk, whipped cream, and mint. You will also need to find a few larger bowls and a container that you can put in the freezer. It is also a good idea to have some tools that you can use for mixing.
Luckily, it does not take very long to make your ice cream. It will only be around 15 minutes. Of course, that is assuming that you already have your cannabis butter. But you will still need to let the mixture sit in the freezer once it is done.
How to Make Your Ice Cream
- 56 Grams of Cannabis Butter
- 960 Grams of Heavy Whipping Cream
- One Can of Condensed Milk
- 6 Grams of Vanilla Extract
- A Handful of Chopped Mint
Start by whipping your cream until it is stiff. This process might take a few minutes. You can use a mixer for this or use a whisk and mix it hard. Now, add the other ingredients to a separate bowl and mix those, as well. Fold the other ingredients with your whipping cream. Now, just put the mixture in your freezer and leave it there for the next six hours.
Pairing Food with Weed Ice Cream
It is easy to dress up this basic recipe using toppings and sauces. You might add in bits of marijuana brownies for an extra high and some chocolate. Or you can use gummy bears for your topping. If you wanted to make a banana split, you could add a banana to dress up this fun edible.
You don’t have to limit yourself to adding ingredients to your cannabis-infused ice cream either. You can also use the weed ice cream to add as a topping to any kind of cake you like. If you have a pie, brownie, or cake that is infused with cannabis, then this ice cream is a perfect addition.
Marijuana-infused floats are also delicious. You can add the ice cream to a soda to make a powerful but delicious drink. Plus, it is delicious in a dark beer. A dark beer is the perfect pairing for ice cream because of the natural caramel flavour.
The Best Strain for Ice Cream
When it comes to homemade ice cream, there are a lot of strains to choose from. In fact, if you have a strain that you don’t care for as much, adding it to ice cream might help cover up the flavour if you make a highly flavourful ice cream. For instance, chocolate can cover up a lot of different flavours.
However, if the strain you choose for your ice cream is important to you, then you might want to go with the Ice Cream strain. This is a creamy strain that can blend perfectly with your ice cream. It is an indica, and it can make you feel both uplifted and relaxed at the same time. The Ice Cream strain has won awards in the past, and it is originally bred by the Dutch. It has pungent skunk aromas. It can give you a relaxing high, and it might be the perfect choice for relaxing with a bowl of homemade ice cream in the evening.
You can even choose to grow this strain yourself. The plant will flower for around 55 to 60 days and give you a good dose. Outdoor producers who live in colder regions often choose this quickly flowering strain since you can harvest before the first comes. Once the buds are completely amateur, they will have milky, creamy trichomes in them. These would be perfect for sprinkling on a bowl of homemade cannabis-infused ice cream.
Keeping Your Edibles Safe
If you have small children in the house, you should keep your edibles safe from them. Unfortunately, it is often hard to keep ice cream locked up since it needs to stay in the freezer. Make sure that you clearly label the container that you are storing it in.
Establish some ground rules with any children in your home. Tell them that this is a treat for adults only. You might consider making this recipe without the cannabis so the kids in your house also have something special to eat. That might make them less tempted to try some of your cannabis ice cream.
Make sure that you don’t get carried away when it comes to eating your ice cream. Remember that with edibles, a little bit goes a long way. Even if you do not feel the effects right away, they will hit you hard later on. Plus, the high with cannabis edibles tends to last for a long time, so make sure that you will have plenty of free time when you are eating your edibles. You might want to have a cannabis-free recipe, so you can indulge in more ice cream without getting too high.
If you do get too high, try to remain calm. It can be a lesson for the next time you are using cannabis edibles. Remember that it is always better to start with a smaller dose than you think you will need.
Making your own cannabis-infused ice cream at home is both fun and easy. Since butter is higher in fat than whipped cream, you will want to make sure that you make it ahead of time. Once you have the basic recipe down, experiment with adding other ingredients, such as chocolate or fruit. The possibilities are endless.
