Health and wellness trends have always had an outsized influence in Orange County. We’re combining the benefits of cannabis, caffeine, and MCT coconut oil in this recipe for cannabis-infused keto coffee.
Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil: The People’s Method
Our method of making cannabis-infused coconut oil has been adapted from Stephanie Hua’s fantastic cookbook, Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen. To make it, you will need:
7 grams of your favorite strain of cannabis flower
12 oz MCT coconut oil
2 cups water
Large measuring cup
Large Mason jar with lid (1 quart size or larger)
Spread your cannabis flower out into an even layer on a baking sheet.
Heat the oven to 280F. Bake the marijuana for 40 minutes, then let cool. Grind into a coarse powder.
Add all ingredients to the saucepan and turn the heat to medium. Do not stir.
Once the mixture has reached 200F, turn the heat down to low. Leave on the stove for 4 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. If you notice that the water has evaporated, you may add more warm water to the pan.
Line your strainer with cheesecloth and use it to filter the mixture. Make sure to squeeze all of the oil out of the cheesecloth if it gets trapped. Discard all solids.
Pour the mixture into your Mason jar and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pour out the water, which will have separated from your cannabis coconut oil. Store your oil at room temperature or in the fridge to use in your homemade cannabis edible recipes.
Wake and Bake With Cannabis-Infused Keto Coffee
According to Health Magazine, drinking keto coffee in the morning has a host of benefits:
- Satiety. Black coffee (by itself) won’t make you feel full, but adding fats changes the equation. Rich, creamy keto can help you to downsize the rest of your breakfast.
- Nutrition. Compared to a typical, sugar-filled coffeehouse concoction, keto coffee has much better macronutrients. Balancing your intake of carbs with fat and protein is crucial.
- Maintaining a healthy weight. According to a New York Times statement from Dr. William Yancy, the keto diet may be able to help burn more calories and reduce hunger.
To make your bulletproof keto coffee with cannabis-infused MCT oil, you will need:
1 cup fresh-brewed coffee
1 tbsp cacao butter, melted
1 tbsp cannabis-infused coconut oil
Stevia drops to taste
Add all ingredients to the blender, then blend on high speed until the mixture is well-incorporated. For more froth, blend for longer.
Pour the mixture into your favorite mug—you’re good to go!
