Sometimes it can be hard to work CBD into your wellness routine. We all have busy lives and whether you’re rushing off on holiday or to catch the train a Smoothie is a great way to work CBD into your life alongside healthy and filling foods. Below are our selection of Summer Smoothies, created with the heat of summer in mind. If you’re interested in other CBD Recipes then we also have a blog post all about cooking with CBD.
One of our favourite things to to is to prep our smoothies the night before – chop up all of the fruit, veg and more you need and put it in a container in the freezer. No need for ice in the morning, just blend and you’re off!
Below are our Top 5 Smoothie Recipes for the month of July, suitable for a range of different tastes. Got a smoothie suggestion? Leave it below and it might make it into Augusts edition where you can name your own smoothie.
Note: Please remember to use CBD TINCTURE, not CBD Vape Liquid as the Vape juice is not for oral consumption (and will taste horrible!).
