This creamy, warming chocolate recipe provides the perfect solution for getting yourself up and going in the morning or lifting yourself out of a midday slump.

CBD + Hot Chocolate: A Match Made in Heaven
Hot chocolate is already a winner in our books — however it’s served. Add a dash of CBD and it only gets better. In our homemade peppermint hot chocolate recipe, we’ve combined the classic combo of chocolate, sugar, and cream with our Energy Enhanced Peppermint Tincture. Featuring a special blend of CBD, CBG, MCT oil, and Vitamin B12, this groundbreaking formula offers energy support along with the potential focus-enhancing properties of CBD. Add the refreshing taste of peppermint and you have an oil that’s especially invigorating for the senses.
By adding this peppermint treat to hot chocolate, we’ve combined the energy-enhancing properties of our CBD tincture with the stimulating effects of cocoa. The natural fats in the cream and milk can also help CBD be absorbed more effectively for a slow-release, full-body lift.
Let’s Make CBD Hot Chocolate!
Time to prepare: 15 minutes
What You’ll Need
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 6 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 dropper of CBG:CBD peppermint-flavored tincture oil (1000mg); add more oil for an enhanced peppermint flavor
Method for Preparing our CBD Hot Chocolate
In a saucepan, combine cream, milk, and sugar and heat over medium-low heat. When the cream mixture begins to steam, add the chopped chocolate, stirring until melted. Measure a dropper of CBG:CBD peppermint tincture oil, add to the mix, and enjoy!
Adaptations for Special Diets
If you’re not a huge fan of cream, milk, sugar, or bittersweet chocolate, don’t throw in the towel just yet! Fortunately, pretty much all of these ingredients can be substituted with something else:
- Instead of cream and milk, try almond, coconut, or soy milk with coconut cream.
- Instead of regular sugar, try maple syrup, molasses, coconut sugar, or stevia.
- Instead of bittersweet chocolate, try 100% organic cacao or carob.
At the end of the day, the aim is to savor the delights of a warm hot chocolate with CBD. If you find a diet-friendly variation you love, be sure to post it in the comments below!
