Cold Brew CBD Gummies
FOOD AS MEDICINE
We love adding gelatin to recipes whenever possible whether using to thicken sauces or soups, create gut supporting warm beverages or in gelatin gummies! These gummies combine cold brew for a caffeinated kick with pasture-raised gelatin for gut support, heavy cream for a dose of healthy fats and CBD for a mellow-out effect. Gelatin supports healthy bones and joints, hair, skin and nails and most importantly gut lining integrity. You can think of gelatin as a “face lift” for the GI tract that aids in fueling gut cell regeneration. The addition of CBD counteracts any jitters you might normally feel from coffee (especially cold brew) and helps deliver the caffeine in a balanced way. Use Select Lavender CBD Oil for even more mellow-out support or peppermint to support digestion, concentration and focus!
2 Tbsp Pasture-Raised Gelatin (we like Further Food)
1 1/2 cups cold brew, brought to room temperature
1/4 cup grassfed heavy cream (or coconut cream for dairy free)
1 mL Lavender or Peppermint CBD, equivalent to 30mg dose (we like Social CBD)
Place the gelatin in 1/2 cup of the room temperature cold brew and whisk to combine. Allow to bloom while you heat the heavy cream or coconut cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Once simmering, remove from the heat. In a blender, combine the bloomed gelatin, remaining cold brew, heated heavy cream and CBD and blend until just combined. Pour into silicone gelatin molds and place in the fridge for 4 hours, up to overnight. Enjoy 1-2 as a pick-me-up!
Makes about 12 gummies (depending on the size of molds)
