The Perfect CBD Gift for Gourmands
Daily Harvest Launches New Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte Just in Time for the Holidays
As someone who adores food and drinks, the holiday season is something I look forward to every year. With so many decadent gourmet items to celebrate with, festive fare spoils the palate, making it a perfect time to be a foodie or honor the gourmand in your life.
While it’s easy to overindulge during the colder months, healthier holiday items are becoming more and more readily available that not only taste out-of-this-world delicious but are packed with healing ingredients to keep you feeling joyful all season long. One of these items is Daily Harvest’s brand new Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte. This limited-edition CBD-infused latte has quickly become a favorite in my home, making it the go-to holiday beverage that I love to share with friends.
If you’re new to Daily Harvest, this one-step-prep food delivery service works with organic farmers, in-house chefs, and nutritionists to craft gourmet recipes that are shipped to your door. All of their food is picked at peak ripeness and frozen on the farm. Their ingredients are healthy and incredibly easy to prep positioning Daily Harvest as the perfect match for anyone looking to eat more fruits and vegetables!
As the company’s first CBD item, I adore Daily Harvest’s Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte for many reasons, but what’s truly impressive is how seamless the CBD oil is infused into each latte pod (one Daily Harvest latte cup makes 3 single-serve lattes). While oils can be tricky to work with, particularly in drinks, no separation occurs when making this beverage at home, which means you’ll receive the full benefits of the CBD that you’re consuming rather than finding leftover CBD oil at the bottom of your glass. If no separation occurs, this is a good sign of quality manufacturing, which Daily Harvest has achieved.
While some holiday drinks can be overly sweet, Daily Harvest has created a well-balanced, gourmet Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte combining some unique ingredients that add complexity such as organic coconut cream, vanilla bean, and Himalayan sea salt. In addition, this latte contains ashwagandha, an ancient medicinal herb that offers some incredible health benefits, reducing anxiety and combating stress. When mixed with CBD, this powerful duo promotes zen, which can help keep things calm during this crazy time of year.
Worried about consuming THC? Daily Harvest’s new Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte won’t get you high. Instead, you might feel completely relaxed and blissed out after drinking just one latte pod containing 10 milligrams of broad-spectrum CBD oil.
If you’re brand new to cannabidiol, you might be wondering what “broad spectrum” means. Simply put, broad-spectrum is a term used to describe CBD products that go through extra processing to remove all traces of THC while focusing on preserving the other cannabinoids and terpenes that are found in cannabis. Broad-spectrum hemp products are your best option if you want to avoid THC’s intoxicating effects altogether, making these items a perfect starting point for the canna-curious.
Whether you’re a CBD newbie or bonafide pro, Daily Harvest’s new Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte is mouthwateringly delicious and can be enjoyed by all. Below is a quick guide for making it at home.
Daily Harvest Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte
1 Daily Harvest Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte pod
10 ounces milk of your choice
FOR HOT CBD LATTE: Remove one latte pod from the freezer, run it under hot water for 10 seconds, then peel off the foil seal. Using a small saucepan, begin to heat the milk on low and slowly stir in the CBD latte pod using a small silicon-tipped spatula. Heat for 2 - 3 minutes, or until steaming. Stir well to combine.
Pro-tip: If you own a milk frother, save about ¼ cup of the Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte to froth and then add on top before serving. Garnish with crushed peppermint for a special holiday treat.
FOR COLD CBD LATTE: Remove one latte pod from the freezer, run it under hot water for 10 seconds, then peel off the foil seal. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend for about 10 seconds, or until frothy. Pour over ice and enjoy!
Pro-tip: If you’re looking for an extra boost of energy to get you through the holidays, add one espresso shot into the blender and then follow the directions as noted.
As the perfect gift for any gourmand, Daily Harvest’s new Chocolate + Peppermint CBD Latte is a must-try this holiday season, especially if you or a loved one is thinking about integrating CBD into daily routines and rituals. While cannabidiol is not a cure-all, it does have the ability to influence a wide range of other molecules and receptor systems in the brain and body to produce therapeutic effects that can enhance this special time of year.
