Iced Chai with CBD

Recently, I have been making this iced chai recipe for myself a few times a week and so I thought I would share my (super simple) recipe with you today! It’s nothing fancy, but it’s super delicious. CBD-elicious.
Ingredients:
strongly brewed chai tea
nut milk (or any kind of milk—I used cashew)
CBD oil (I like The Daily Hit)
sugar or Xylitol (we only use xylitol in our home—I like it because you use an equal amount to how much sugar you would use, and it doesn’t taste weird).
cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise if you want to be FANCY.
ice
In whatever cup you plan on using, pour in the milk and chai tea you want. I do about half and half in each glass. I find that measuring in the glass helps me waste less and I save the leftover brewed tea in the fridge for later. Pour your tea/milk combo in the blender.
Add some CBD oil. Check how much the bottle recommends for a dose and add that much in your blender.
A quick note about CBD for anyone who is new to it! CBD is made from the cannabis plant, but it does NOT make you high and it is legal in most states. It’s similar to using hemp oil in your skincare. It’s gained a ton of popularity recently because it can be used to unwind. I first got interested when my friend Annarose said that a dose of CBD was similar to how a glass of wine makes you feel. I was trying to drink less and it seemed like a good alternative. Anyway, I am not a CBD expert by any means, so if you want to learn more your friend Google can give you some more in-depth lessons.
Bottom line, I will try anything that is a natural solution for calming, winding down, better sleep, etc. …
Next, add your sweetener. You can use sugar, honey, Xylitol, or whatever you like.
After you make it one time, you will know exactly how much to add next time. But, the first time you make it, I recommend going light, tasting it and then adding more if you want!
Next, I add a pretty big sprinkle of cinnamon and a small sprinkle of nutmeg.
Add ice and blend!
I blend ALL my coffee drinks, matcha, and chai whether I intend to heat them or serve them cold. It’s just better as it gets everything really well blended and takes no time at all.
Pour and enjoy!
I love chai for a light dose of caffeine (it’s less than coffee) or an afternoon pick-me-up. I hope you like it too!
