With the classic edible being a brownie, and common takes on marijuana edibles ranging from ice cream to rice crispies, you may be thinking how to possibly create healthy weed edibles. However, we’ve created a list of a few options that are as delicious as they are good for you - and none of them involve a boring salad! Instead, we’ll be suggesting some fairly straightforward recipes but with the added taste and smell of cannabis. We’ve suggested which of True Blue’s terpenes and natural flavors we think would make good enhancements to these recipes, but follow your inner chef and create some new cannabis-flavored recipes of your own!
Here are five healthy weed edible recipes:
Green Smoothie: A classic green smoothie with a special kick. Start your morning with a fruit and vegetable packed green smoothie full of healthy vitamins and the fuel you need to get through the day. The best part about this smoothie is that you don’t really need a specific recipe. You can wing it, or add a couple teaspoons of cannabis infused coconut oil to your tried-and-true recipe. Pro-tip: skip the ice and use frozen fruit instead! Enhance the taste of this drink even more by adding some of our cannabis flavorings like Berry or Banana Kush.
Hummus and Pita Chips: Hummus makes the perfect summertime snack, and infusing the taste of hummus with your favorite True Blue terpenes will make it even better. Hummus is packed with protein, and is acceptable for a vegan diet as well, making it a win-win for everyone. Check out this recipe from Herb for how to make homemade cannabis-infused hummus.
Avocado Toast: Avocado toast has been a popular food trend for a while now, and believe it or not, you can make the taste even better. Simply mash some cannabutter or cannabis infused coconut oil into your avocado before you spread it on your toast. Avocados are loaded with potassium, healthy fats, and fiber. For extra protein and an Instagram-worthy dish, add a fried egg on top.
Banana Ice Cream: Okay, we know we just ragged on ice cream above as being one of the less healthy edible options. But did you know you can enjoy this delicious treat with just one ingredient? Just take a couple of frozen bananas and puree them in a blender or food processor until they are roughly the texture of soft serve. If it gets a little too melted, pop it in the freezer for a bit after blending. You’ll get the same great taste without having to go off your diet! For an added kick, add some cannabis infused coconut oil, and a few drops of one of our more tropical cannabis flavors like Banana Kush or Pineapple Express.
Watermelon Steaks: For some people, watermelon steaks are a summer classic, for others, it’s likely something you’ve never even heard of. This treat consists of grilling or baking thick slices of watermelon until charred, resulting in a texture similar to that of raw tuna. The result is a classic dish with a distinctive taste that you’ll never forget. Check out this recipe for how to add a weed flavor twist to this meal. Consider adding True Blue’s Sweet Melon natural cannabis flavoring to help enhance the flavor of the watermelon, or go a little more gourmet by adding a few drops of our Thin Mint Cookies.

For all you medical marijuana users out there, there are other options besides vape pens out there.
