Yummy Keto CBD Chocolate Recipe

If you’re anything like us at Bristol CBD HQ, then you will love Chocolate!

Following on from our recent Keto Energy Bites Recipe we have been on a real Keto / sugar-free journey…Our latest obsession is the wonderful world of Keto CBD Chocolates.

This recipe takes a few minutes to mix together, and is super versatile in terms of ingredients you can add to refine the taste. The end result is a delicious, low calorie, sugar-free Keto chocolate treat!

Winning 😇

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the Keto CBD Chocolate Recipe (our recipe makes 6 tasty servings)

A bit more about the ingredients: 

Cacao butter: We tend to buy this in bulk as it saves us a lot of cash in the long run. You can find decent online sources to suit your budget & your taste buds!

Cacao powder: We have opted for unroasted raw cacao powder, you can find this online in bulk as well. It’s super handy to have around and can be used in so many recipes and meals.

Erythritol: A wonderful alcohol sugar with zero calories (you can learn more about this & see it in action in our recent Keto Energy Bites Recipe). Erythritol is one of the most neutral sugars out there & it doesn’t affect your carb intake.

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

We wanted each of the 6x chocolate bars to contain 25mg CBD, so for this recipe we used 4x whole pipettes (roughly 15 drops in each pipette) of our favourite 500mg 5% Gold Bristol CBD Oil.

This Gold CBD oil is great for cooking because it doesn’t harbour the bitter flavour of our other CBD Oils. It’s perfectly disguised in food! You can learn more about the differences between our Gold & Whole plant CBD Oils in our handy CBD Guide here

To make this Keto CBD Chocolate Recipe :

  1. Melt the Cacao butter 
  2. Add the Erythritol & the Cacao powder into your mixture (note – the Erythritol has been blended into a pure, fine, caster sugar-esque consistency to make it less grainy)
  3. Give this mixture a good stir & try to ensure it is as smooth as possible
  4. Once mixed, it’s then time to add your flavourings: 3x drops of Doterra Peppermint food grade essential oils & CBD oil
  5. We then decant the mix into some chocolate moulds
  6. Pop these in the fridge for an hour to set, and then let the snacking begin 💪🏽

It’s that simple! 

Feeling adventurous? You can tweak it by adding different essential oils, Chilli flakes, salt and / or even some nuts to meet your tastebuds! We have experimented with Vanilla essence, toasted almonds, Mandarin, Geranium & Rose. You can even add lemon or orange zest to add this crisp zesty undertone!

If you do give this gorgeous Keto CBD Chocolate recipe a spin, please let us know what you think!  Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see your chocs in action!

Exfoliating CBD Body Scrub Recipe

Nourish your skin with vitamins and nutrients, and leave it feeling invigorated & soothed with this gorgeous exfoliating CBD body scrub recipe!

Watch as Koren from Bristol CBD & The Colon Care Centre shares this simple and inexpensive recipe that you can make in minutes! It’s perfect for anyone wanting to treat themselves to some body pampering, or to help soothe dry skin conditions! Did we mention that it’s edible & tastes delicious?!? Oh hello…

For us at Bristol CBD HQ, a dream night-in includes a healthy dinner & lots of pampering!

We love snacking on home-made treats topped with a delicious Olive CBD tapenade spread, before settling down to a wholesome, revitalising bath! To set the scene we light a few fragrant candles, and a peaceful incense stick. For music, we zone out to our favourite jazz & blues playlist on Spotify, and then for the pièce de résistance…

We give our body a good scrub with our divine home-made exfoliating CBD body scrub, before soaking away in a hot bath. Perfect for a much needed recharge and some body pampering! 

The base ingredient of this divine DIY scrub (and sneaky edible treat!) is used coffee grounds…

The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate and promote healthy circulation, which in turn can help improve dry skin conditions such as eczema. It’s a great way to recycle your coffee, with an added bonus of smoothing out the skin. The grainy nature of coffee grinds also act as a wonderful light scrubbing agent!

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oats! 

Along with the coffee grounds, we use blitzed oats to soothe and cleanse the skin. Oats retain powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which help treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. Oats also contain compounds called saponins, which are natural cleansers.

Detoxifying & cleansing lemon for added zest & skin vitality

As a natural fragrant for the scrub we love to use the zest of a Lemon and then a few drops of organic Lemon essential oil. Not only does the zest add an enchanting aroma to the scrub, but Lemon is wonderfully cleansing & detoxifying. 

Here are your main ingredients:

  • ½ Cup of used coffee grounds
  • ½ Cup of brown Demerara sugar
  • ¼ Cup of oatmeal (whizzed this up in the food processor)
  • ¼ Cup of melted down coconut oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ⅛ cup of olive oil
  • 2-3 drops of Doterra Organic Lemon Essential Oil 

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

For this recipe we used 1x full pipette of our high-strength 10% whole-plant Bristol CBD Oil. We generally only add CBD oil into this recipe if we are going to be using this scrub in / with a bath! If you’re having a quick shower you wouldn’t get the full benefits of the CBD oil. In a bath however, this is perfect and absolutely fab for a long soak along with the other natural and comforting ingredients. 

Time to mix it all together!

All you need to do is add all of the food based ingredients into a bowl, followed by the Olive Oil & Essential Oils…It’s a great time to get your hands into this and give it a good squidge together!

One it’s fully combined, you can decant the scrub into a mason jar / air-tight container and let it bind (as the Coconut Oil begins to set). If it’s too oily, then you can add a little bit more Coffee, or even some more Oats…

How to use:

Run a soothing bath, wet your skin, grab a handful of the scrub & have a good rub into your body! Enjoy a long soak in your bath and let all the scrub residue soak into your skin…

Feeling adventurous?

This recipe also tastes absolutely divine! Coffee grounds contain loads of antioxidants to help boost your memory and concentration & are fab treating post exercise fatigue!

If you did want to take the turn into a more yummy edible mix, then the key ingredient is our dearest friend…Cacao! All you would need to do is follow the alternative instructions below:

1. Substitute out the olive oil

2. Replace with ⅛ cup of cacao butter

3. Add ¼ cup of cacao powder and mix it together!

Spoon this healthy snack into small balls, or use ice cube moulds. You can then cool in your fridge or freezer…We love to use ice cube moulds for our healthy snack recipes; you can see an example of this in our recent Yummy CBD Chocolate Keto Energy Bites Recipe.

And there you have it…Divine, zesty chocolate bites, and an energizing CBD body scrub! 

If you do give either the scrub or it’s edible other half a go, let us know what you think. Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see the recipe in action!

Happy scrubbing & snacking!

CBD Chocolate Keto Energy Bites Recipe

The team at Bristol CBD are always curious to experience new health-enhancing diets. Our fascination with Gut health and the digestive system has led us to the Ketogenic Diet!

The ketogenic diet (or keto diet, for short) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits. Numerous studies show that this type of diet can help you lose weight and improve your health. Ketogenic diets may even have benefits against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease. You can learn more here.

We’re absolutely in love with this easy (literally a few minutes!) delicious CBD chocolate energy bites recipe. If you’re on the Keto journey, then you will probably have a lot of carb cravings and will want a sweet fix. These bites are great to keep you on track, and nourish those taste buds. The perfect snack to get you through what can be a challenging entry to the Keto diet!

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the CBD Chocolate Energy Bites:

  • ½ cup of nut butter (Almond butter is our favourite)
  • ⅛ cup of gently heated Coconut Oil
  • ¼ cup of Cacao Powder
  • x2 tspn of blended Erythritol (read more about this sweetener below)

You need something to sweeten this recipe, and unfortunately most sweeteners contain carbs…

So for this recipe, we’ve gone for Erythritol, an alcohol sugar, (the body doesn’t absorb it!) as it’s a fantastic substitute to use when you are on a Keto diet. It’s about 70% of the sweetness of sugar so you need to add a little bit more to get up to the sweetness of one teaspoon of sugar.

Top tip / we blitzed the Erythritol in the blender and made a powder with it (like a caster sugar) – much easier to absorb into the nut butter!

To make your CBD Chocolate Energy Bites:

  1. Add your Nut Butter & Coconut Oil into a mixing bowl
  2. Give it a good mix to make an oily base
  3. Add 2x teaspoons of the blitzed Erythritol
  4. Add the cacao powder & give the mixture a good mix

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

For this recipe we used half a pipette (roughly 10 drops) of our favourite 500mg 5% Gold Bristol CBD Oil. This Gold CBD oil is great for cooking because it doesn’t harbour the bitter flavour of our other CBD Oils. It’s perfectly disguised in food! The Gold Bristol CBD Oil has a very neutral flavour, and is perfect for adding to these cheeky fat bombs.

And the final step – Spoon this mixture into your moulds (we use use ice cube moulds)

  1. Spoon your mixture on top of your moulds (a bit messy but a lot of fun!) 
  2. Use a “Flatula” (flat side of a spatula! We’re still laughing about this at HQ!) to navigate the energy bite mixture into your moulds, using the flat head to fill the moulds and smooth the mixture
  3. Pop it in your freezer to set, and then once set, pop them out of the moulds & enjoy!

Feeling adventurous? You could add some salt to the recipe, or some Chili powder for a spicy kick. Have you ever used food-grade essential oils in your cooking? Our household loves to experiment with new flavours, and we love oils from:

Doterra

NHR Organics

You would only need one drop of food-grade essential oil in a recipe this size (food grade essential oil is very punchy, so go easy!)

Why not try a Citrus, Cardamon, Cinnamon or Ginger essential oil? The beauty of this recipe, along with all of our previous CBD recipes is that you can play around with them and find your own balance to suit your needs & most importantly, your taste buds!

If you do give these yummy CBD Chocolate Energy Bites a go, let us know what you think. Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see your yummy bites in action!

Nom nom nom – enjoy!

Divine CBD Golden Milk Recipe

Turmeric root is highly regarded for it’s vast array of health-giving benefits. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and health promoting properties.

This yummy recipe is a great alternative to a sneaky Cappuccino or other hot drinks. The spices add for a delicious chai taste, and the beauty of it is that you can adapt the recipe to include different flavourings to meet your needs. 

This recipe is broken down into two sections; 

  1. Making the CBD Turmeric Paste 
  2. Using the CBD Turmeric Paste to make CBD Golden Milk. 

This recipe for this paste will go a long way; making around 20-30 cups of delicious CBD Golden Milk!

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the CBD Turmeric Paste

  • 100g of Turmeric
  • 75g of Coconut Oil
  • 1x cup of cold water
  • 1x tspn ground black Pepper (Piperine is incredible for enhancing the bioavailability of Turmeric)
  • 2x tspn Cinammon (Great for flavour, but also as a blood sugar balancer)
  • 2x tspn Ginger (From the same family as Turmeric & great for alleviating nausea & cramps)
  1. Pop the ingredients in a saucepan and heat for 5 minutes
  2. Add a little bit more water if required
  3. The end result will be a thick paste

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

For this recipe we used a whole pipette (roughly 20 drops) of our favourite 500mg 5% Gold Bristol CBD Oil. CBD evaporates once it reaches 170° , so we tend to add it at the end of cooking. This Gold CBD oil is great for cooking with because it doesn’t harbour the bitter flavour of our other CBD Oils. It’s perfectly disguised in food! 

Remember to give this paste a really good stir and mix the CBD oil well and truly in.

You can then pop the paste (once cooled) in a jar and it will keep for around 3 weeks

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the CBD Golden Milk

  • 1x cup of plant milk (we love Oatly milk!) 
  • Cardamom seeds (adds a lovely chai flavour & great for the digestive system)
  • 1x tspn Turmeric Paste per cup of milk

To make this CBD Golden Milk:

  1. Use a saucepan set over low heat
  2. Add your plant milk, and then heat up to a gentle simmer
  3. Next up, add your yummy golden Turmeric Paste & stir until dissolved into the milk
  4. Once the paste has combined, let your milk cool slightly and then serve away!

Feeling cheeky? Why not whizz it up with a milk frother or stick blender! We love a sprinkle of Cinnamon on top…

Feeling adventurous? Add some Maple Syrup, or Honey to satisfy that sweet tooth!

If you do give this CBD Golden milk a whirl, let us know what you think. Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see your cuppa! 

Enjoy,

Making The Perfect Cup Of CBD Coffee

CBD coffee brings the superb benefits of both coffee and CBD together, and it does so as a combination of two natural substances: a natural plant-based caffeine drink, and a natural cannabinoid! Win-win! 

Making CBD coffee is easy, short, and simple. 

Making your own CBD coffee barely takes any more time than having a regular coffee on its own. Be as adventurous as you wish, and use the ingredients below as a rough guide to substitute in / out flavours that you want to taste. We love a simple black coffee, however you could add your own plant milk, use a frother, or go for a turbo-charged aeropress! 

Here are your main ingredients:

Unlike other niche coffees such as Latte’s, Macchiato’s, Flat White’s etc that require a bit more effort, making CBD coffee is super easy as there are really only three simple steps:

  1. Brew a simple black coffee (we use our FAV coffee brand Grumpy Mule, this is their delicious Guatemalan range) – 2x tbsp ground coffee (per cup)
  2. Add in your daily dose of CBD
  3. Stir & viola!

For this recipe we use our popular full-spectrum 500mg 5% Bristol CBD Oil

You can drop your CBD straight in from our Bristol CBD dropper. 6 drops (15mg CBD based on this 5% CBD Oil) is recommended to start but the amount will always be up to you and your body / CBD routine.

Feeling adventurous? Why not try making a CBD Coffee with our delicious Peppermint flavoured 5% CBD oil, which will give your CBD coffee a refreshing and subtle minty taste! 

Have you seen our other CBD recipes?
