Summer is approaching and nothing is more appealing at certain times than an ice cream of your favorite flavor to refresh you and have a little moment of pleasure. How about you make it of marijuana? In the following article we tell you how to do this and the aspects you need to take into account, such as decarboxylation, to maintain the effects of cannabis.
Do you know what I like most about strolling through the streets these days when summer is already beginning to feel? See the new flavors of artisan ice-cream parlours! And yesterday there was one of an intense green color that caught my attention. “Will it be marijuana ice cream?”I thought.” And no, it wasn’t, it was matcha green tea. But this gave me an idea.?
Of course! So much time looking for and preparing recipes with marijuana like coffee, brownie, truffles, milk, among others sweet flavors or pizza and cannabis oil in salads among some of the salty flavors and I had completely overlooked that I could do it in ice cream!
And you, have you thought about it? Would you like some? Well, if so, stay! Today I’m going to tell you how to make marijuana ice cream for which I invite you to take paper and pen and take note of the ingredients and the steps to follow, but especially, of some clues for marijuana ice cream to retain the flavor of cannabis, but also its effects. We’re starting!!?
Ingredients for making cannabis ice cream
The truth is that I have found different variants of recipes to make this ice cream, so I have stayed with the one that I thought was the simplest, but also the one that I liked best in terms of flavour (yes, I have tried several and, finally, I will stick with the one I am going to give you next)
- 2 to 2.5 grams of marijuana, depending on the person who is going to use it (although you know it is always better to throw it down). My recommendation is that it’s not a type of marijuana that makes you fall asleep, because you probably want to keep enjoying your day. Keep this in mind when choosing a variety.
- 500 ml of cream (for cooking, because it is thicker and the fat is necessary to preserve all the properties of cannabis).
- 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil (although there will always be more fat in the butter).
- 75 grams of sugar (or if you prefer another sweetener to taste that is healthier, no problem either: stevia, agave, maple, coconut or birch syrup, for example).
- 2 ripe bananas (so that there are no problems when preparing them and because they will give more flavor to your ice cream.
- A pinch of salt (you know all desserts have it)
- Rum (2 tablespoons) with honey ( 5 tablespoons; if the honey is pure, better than better)
These would be the basic ingredients, but from here you can add others that you like to have in the ice cream. Some people put cookies, coconuts, nuts or mint on it, among other flavors. In this case it looks great because they are products that match great with rum and honey, without leaving aside the flavor, aroma and characteristics of the marijuana you choose to make your cannabis ice cream.
Things to consider before starting the recipe
If you’ve already taken note of all the ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe, you just need to get down to work. But first I’d like to talk to you about decarboxylation. “Descarbox what,”?, a friend of mine told me the other day. Did the word surprise you too? Actually, I’m sure you’ve done it if you’ve prepared any marijuana recipes.
When you smoke or vape the cannabis a process of descaboxilación is produced, in which the THCa of the cannabis becomes THCa and of there that you can enjoy the high or relax that you offer each variety of cannabis. But when it comes to cooking it, it’s differentTo begin with, and if you’ve ever read any of our recipes, you know that they all have to contain some oil or a fat product, such as cream in this case, so that it catches the properties of marijuana.
In the case of ice cream, if you want to achieve the same effect, it is always advisable to do this prior process. To do this, my recommendation is to keep the marijuana buds in the oven (which you will have preheated for 10 minutes beforehand). That should do it.
Making marijuana ice cream step by step
And now I do. You can start making your marijuana ice cream by following the steps below:
Step 1: In a casserole dish with enough depth, heat the cream over a medium heat (so it doesn’t burn) and stir slowly with a wooden spoon. Then add the butter, salt and sugar, stirring constantly.
Step 2: Once you see that these ingredients have been melted and mixed correctly, add to the dough the cannabis that you have broken up with the help of a grinder or, if you prefer, you can do it manually, although it will take longer.
Step 3: In a clean bowl or plate, cut the banana into slices and then crush it with a fork. When ready, add to the above mixture and add the rum and honey. Whisk everything together with a blender until creamy.
Step 4: turn off the heat and pour the mixture into a container that you can then put in the freezer, once the dough has cooled. My advice is to make it a comfortable container, like an ice cream container that is already prepared, so that you can serve yourself comfortably whenever you want. And let him spend at least four hours in the freezer.
You can finally enjoy your marijuana ice cream! ? And you’ve already seen that it’s not complicated at all. Simply collect the ingredients I have given you in the first section, mix them all in a casserole dish over a low heat, beat and put them in the freezer for a few hours.
And don’t forget to take into account what we always say when we use cannabis by mouth: the effect takes much longer to arrive (it can take between one and two hours), but when it arrives it is more powerful. So don’t try to take more so that it goes up sooner: enjoy the taste and let yourself go, because the effect of the cannabis ice cream is sure to arrive.
I can only hope you enjoy the ice cream, and I invite you to comment on this article and share it in your networks if you like it.? This way more people will be able to enjoy this summer (and, of course, all year round) a delicious marijuana ice cream. Enjoy your meal!
