It’s that time of year when we stop to consider all the marvelous things in our lives and stuff our faces with turkey and mashed potatoes. Though Thanksgiving is a delightful excuse to bring families together over a festive meal, it can also bring about arguments, familial tensions, and indigestion.
But don’t worry; we have the perfect solution to dull holiday anxiety this year. Continue reading to discover CBD recipes to ease Thanksgiving stress.
A PSA for Thanksgiving CBD recipes
First, we’d like to suggest that you always label or tell guests about recipes that include CBD as you would with any unfamiliar ingredient. Now, let’s get back to learning about tantalizing CBD Thanksgiving recipes.
Social anxiety melting CBD Brie Bites
Was it even Thanksgiving if brie wasn’t involved? We don’t think so. That’s why we’ve taken this delicious Cranberry Brie Bite recipe from Delish and spiced it up with our award-winning CBD oil. Ease your guests’ nerves right off the bat with this festive appetizer.
- 1 (8-oz.) tube crescent dough
- Flour, for surface
- 1 (8-oz.) wheel of brie
- 1/2 c. whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1/4 c. chopped pecans
- 6 sprigs of rosemary, cut into 1″ pieces.
- 15 drops of Vigilant Citrus Lifestyle Formula CBD Tincture
Preheat oven to 375° and grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent dough, and pinch together seams. Cut into 24 squares. Place squares into muffin tin slots.
Mix ½ c. of whole berry cranberry sauce with 15 drops of Citrus Lifestyle Formula CBD Tincture. Set aside.
Cut brie into small pieces and place inside the crescent dough. Top with a spoonful of cranberry sauce, some chopped pecans, and one little sprig of rosemary.
Bake until the crescent pastry is golden, about 15 minutes.
No political fights CBD Gravy
Everyone has a Grandpa Jim, Uncle Bob, or Cousin Tim that loves stirring the pot, and we’re not talking about the mashed potatoes. No matter how much your family gets along, someone will ruin the mood with a discussion about the economy, the election, or last year’s family mishap.
Calm Grandpa Jim and the rest of your guests down with some super relaxing CBD gravy. To make it, stir in 20 drops of Vigilant’s Natural Flavor Lifestyle CBD Tincture to your favorite gravy. We’re giving Betty Crocker a makeover with our recipe below.
- ¼ cup turkey drippings (fat and juices from roasted turkey)
- ¼ cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
- 2 cups liquid (juices from roasted turkey, broth, water)
- ½ teaspoon salt, or less, if using turkey drippings
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 20 drops of Vigilant Natural Flavor Lifestyle CBD Tincture
Pour drippings from roasting pan into bowl, leaving brown particles in pan. Return 1/4 cup drippings to roasting pan. (Measure accurately because too little fat makes gravy lumpy.) Stir in flour. (Measure accurately so gravy is not greasy.)
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Stir in liquid. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.
Remove from heat. Stir in 20 drops of 20 drops of Vigilant Natural Flavor Lifestyle CBD Tincture and salt and pepper.
CBD Pumpkin Spice – Oh so nice- Latte
You’ve almost made it to the finish line. Guests are raving about the food, and though your CBD gravy may not have been entirely successful at quenching all arguments, everyone has remained on speaking terms.
The only thing left to do is calm any remaining indigestion from your rich meal and pre-dinner jitters. Thankfully, we have just the trick for that with a CBD-infused pumpkin spice latte inspired by Ambitious Kitchen.
- 1 shot of espresso or ½ cup of brewed coffee
- ¾ cup of milk or milk substitute
- 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice mix
- 3 drops of Vigilant Pumpkin Spice Latte Lifestyle CBD Tincture
Heat the milk or milk substitute over medium-low heat on the stovetop until it is almost simmering.
Combine the coffee or espresso, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and CBD oil in a mug.
Use a frother to froth the milk for 30 seconds. Then, pour it into the mug with the other ingredients.
Top with whipped cream and cinnamon!
