2023 Simply CBD Recipe & Infusion Round-Up

2023 Simply CBD Recipe & Infusion Round-Up

You can include CBD in your routine in many ways, one of which is in various forms of edibles. This is a popular option, especially among those who don’t like the taste of CBD oil. This year, we decided to focus on breakfasts, snacks, and versatile infusions, to make CBD even easier to fit into your existing daily routine. Breakfasts are perfect for morning doses, snacks for a quick top up, and versatile infusions can be used at any time depending on which options you choose. This article rounds up all of our edible CBD recipes and infusions from 2023.


Recipe 1: Chia Pudding (breakfast or snack)

Chia pudding is a popular breakfast because it’s made in advance and is therefore perfect for anyone who wants a ‘grab and go’ option in the morning. Infusing it with CBD makes it that much more convenient by removing another step from your morning routine. It doesn’t have to be a breakfast, though, as you may prefer to enjoy it as a healthy snack to keep you going throughout the day. If you’d like to learn about the various health benefits of chia seeds, check out the full blog post for this recipe. For now, here are the key steps, ingredients, and some fun customisation options that can help you tailor the recipe to your taste buds. 



Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 125ml milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3 teaspoons of maple syrup, agave, or another sweetener (depending on your sweetness preference)
  • 1-2 pumps of Entourage Aqua Water Soluble CBD (depending on your ideal morning dose)
  • Any optional toppings or customisations you’d like to add



Here’s how to make this tasty breakfast:

  1. Mix your chia seeds, milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract in a bowl.
  2. Add your desired dose of water-soluble CBD to the mixture and stir.
  3. Pour the mixture into a small jar or receptacle with a secure lid.
  4. Place the jar in the fridge and leave overnight.
  5. In the morning, add your favourite toppings.
  6. Enjoy your CBD-infused chia pudding!


Chia pudding toppings and customisation options

The above recipe is a standard base recipe for a simple CBD-infused chia pudding. You can enjoy it as it is, or include additional toppings and customisations to tailor it to your taste buds.


Optional toppings 

Here are some great topping options for you to try:

  • Fresh fruit: Why not add fresh fruits like raspberries, strawberries, banana slices, or blueberries to your chia pudding? They add extra sweetness and nutritional value all at once. 
  • Nuts and seeds: Adding nuts and seeds to your chia pudding helps diversify the texture of the recipe by adding a little crunch. 
  • Coconut flakes: The flavour and texture of coconut flakes perfectly complement the standard chia pudding recipe, so why not take it up a notch by adding them?
  • Chocolate chips: If you’re looking to treat yourself, try adding some chocolate chips to your pudding for a cookie-dough-inspired breakfast that’s as healthy as it is delicious. 
  • Yoghurt: You can add yoghurt of various flavours and sweetness levels to the top of your pudding to act as icing.
  • Cinnamon: Dusting your chia pudding with cinnamon gives it a more diverse flavour profile that’s reminiscent of classic cinnamon cereals and treats. 



Aside from toppings, there are a few other ways you can customise your CBD-infused chia pudding, such as:

  • Use flavoured milk: Using options like vanilla oat milk, hazelnut milk, or chocolate milk can give the pudding different base flavours, which may be better suited to your preferences.
  • Swap out the vanilla extract: If you’re not a fan of vanilla, why not try alternatives like natural cinnamon or hazelnut flavourings?
  • Add to your mixture: You can add extra ingredients, such as nut butters, jams, fruits or even a shot of matcha to the initial mixture to achieve a different flavour of chia pudding. 
  • Make multiple batches: Rather than making a new batch each night, you can make multiple at a time by sizing up the recipe. Chia pudding can last in the fridge for up to five days.


Recipe 2: Loaded Avocado Toast (breakfast)

Avocado toast is a very popular breakfast because it’s equal parts healthy and tasty. Packed with nutrients, healthy fats, and even some protein, it offers a well-rounded way to start your day. It also serves as the perfect base for CBD infusion thanks to that healthy fat content, which you can learn more about in the full blog post for this recipe. For now, here are the key steps, ingredients and 15 topping options for you to choose from. 



Here’s what the recipe calls for:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • ½ teaspoon garlic granules
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Your morning dose of CBD oil
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste



Here are the recipe instructions:

  1. First, peel your avocado and remove the pit before placing it into a bowl. 
  2. Next, add your garlic granules, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to the bowl with the avocado.
  3. In a separate bowl or ramekin, add your olive oil and CBD oil and stir.
  4. Pour your oil mixture into the bowl containing the avocado.
  5. Place both pieces of sourdough bread in the toaster and let cook for as long as needed to achieve your desired results.
  6. While your bread is toasting, use a fork or masher to break down the avocado and mix the other ingredients together until combined well.
  7. Remove your toast from the toaster and smear the smashed avocado mixture evenly on both slices. 
  8. Add your chosen toppings to finish off your loaded CBD-infused avocado toast (check out the next section for our topping suggestions).
  9. Enjoy!


15 loaded avocado toast topping options

Below are 15 of our favourite topping options for loaded avocado toast infused with CBD. These toppings can be mixed and matched or included on their own, depending on what suits your taste preferences and dietary requirements or restrictions. 


1. Chilli flakes

If you’re looking for an easy yet effective way to add some heat to your morning meal, chilli flakes are the perfect choice. They can either be added at an earlier stage so that they’re incorporated into the smashed avocado mixture, or sprinkled on top at the end. Either way, the result will be a kick of spice that takes your simple breakfast to the next level. 


2. Pesto

Pesto is a popular ingredient that can totally change the flavour profile of various dishes. Adding it to avocado toast, whether alongside other complimentary ingredients like cheese and tomatoes, or on its own, is a great way to mix up this simple recipe. It can be spread on your toast before the avocado mixture, combined with the mixture itself, or added to the top of the meal for an Italian twist on this classic breakfast. 


3. Sundried tomatoes

While regular tomatoes also go well with this meal (which we cover in a later section), fans of sundried tomatoes will argue that they take avocado toast from tasty to mouth-wateringly delicious. This simple ingredient can be paired with many other options on this list, such as cheese, pesto, and onions, or enjoyed as a solitary topping. Simply place your desired amount of sun dried tomatoes on top of your smashed avocado toast and enjoy!


4. Cheese

Cheese, whether it’s hard or soft, plant-based or dairy, light or mature, can help enhance the indulgence and flavour of almost any meal. From mozzarella to parmesan, cheddar to red Leicester, and everything in between, your favourite cheese can make a great addition to this recipe. Not only is it delicious, it’s also rich in healthy fats. This means that alongside avocado, it can help increase your body’s absorption of CBD into the bloodstream. 


5. Assorted seeds

There are countless types of seeds you can add to your avocado toast to increase its nutrient profile while also offering some extra crunch. Most seeds can help with the body’s absorption of CBD due to their naturally high fat content. Depending on your palate, you may choose to add sesame seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, or poppy seeds to your meal. Some people even like to add pomegranate seeds for a hint of sweetness. 


6. Eggs 

One of the most popular additions to avocado toast is eggs. You can add almost any type of eggs to this recipe, including poached, scrambled, and fried. This addition offers some extra protein while enhancing the flavour profile of the meal.


7. Tofu

If you’re looking for a plant-based protein to add to your avocado toast, tofu is a great option due to its versatility. You could make tofu scramble or egg-style patties to accompany your meal if you’re looking for a way to substitute eggs. There are also many other ways to incorporate tofu, such as salt and pepper chunks or tofu-based bacon alternatives. It essentially acts as a blank canvas that you can flavour and cook however you like to compliment the rest of your meal. 


8. Garlic chips

While the base recipe already contains a small amount of garlic granules, that may not be enough if you’re a garlic enthusiast. Crispy garlic chips or chunks offer a unique way to add some extra flavour to this recipe. Making them is as simple as pan-frying thin slices of garlic cloves with your choice of oil. Once strained, the result gives you a crunchy garnish perfect for finishing off recipes like this one.


9. Salmon

Salmon, particularly smoked salmon, is a wildly popular addition to savoury breakfast dishes, including avocado toast. It adds its own unique flavour while complementing the rest of the meal, in addition to offering extra nutrients and essential fatty acids. Like seeds and cheese, salmon is high in natural fats and can therefore increase your body’s absorption of CBD, making it an especially great topping option for this particular recipe. 


10. Onion

Onions add some punch to any meal, and there are countless different varieties to choose from. Whether you prefer your onions to be caramelised, crispy, pickled, or raw, they will pair well with avocado toast and most of the other topping options on this list. Red, white, and spring onions all make great additions to this recipe, and shallots are perfect for those who prefer a milder option. The bottom line is that you can add onions your own way, whatever that may be. 


11. Roasted chickpeas

If you’re not a fan of tofu but would still like to include some form of plant-based protein, chickpeas are a perfect choice. Roasted chickpeas in particular pair wonderfully with avocado toast, adding some extra crunch and flavour in addition to protein. They can be seasoned any way you like before roasting, but popular options include garlic and paprika. The final product can then either be included in the base mixture or added as a garnish to the top of the toast for a delicious, protein-packed finish. 


12. Bacon

A classic staple of countless breakfast recipes, this flavourful protein option makes a great addition to avocado toast. Whether you plan to lay rashers on top or underneath the smashed avocado mixture, or sprinkle smaller pieces as a garnish, it’s sure to make this meal more filling, indulgent, and delicious. There are also plenty of plant-based bacon options to choose from if you like the sound of this topping but want to avoid animal products. 


13. Microgreens and herbs 

Microgreens are the shoots of vegetables commonly used in salads, harvested right after the first leaves appear. They make the perfect garnish for this meal by adding some extra nutrients, texture, and flavour. In addition to microgreens, herbs also serve as delicious and nutritious garnishes. Popular options include chives, dill, parsley, and basil, but you can choose any herb you’d like to top off this breakfast recipe. 


14. Hot Sauce

If you’re not a fan of chilli flakes or want to add some extra spice, why not include your favourite hot sauce? Whether it’s sriracha, tabasco, or chilli oil, any hot sauce can give this recipe a flavourful kick of spice. Depending on the ratios you prefer, you may choose to add your sauce to the base smashed avocado recipe or drizzle it on top of the finished product. 


15. Extra veggies 

The base recipe of this breakfast is healthy on its own, but there’s no harm in adding some extra vegetables to the mix. This helps diversify the flavour of the meal while also making it more nutrient dense. Popular options for this type of recipe include sliced tomatoes, grated carrots, chopped cucumber, and radish. These aren’t the only options, as you can add any vegetable you like to this recipe, either within the mixture or as a topping. Whether they’re cooked, raw, or pickled, there are no wrong answers when adding veggies to your morning meal.



Recipe 3: Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Bowl (breakfast)

Looking for a way to mix a sweet treat, CBD infusion, and healthy breakfast all into one healthy meal? Look no further! This recipe tastes like eating an indulgent blueberry muffin but contains only natural ingredients and gives you your ideal morning dose of CBD. Learn more about what makes this a brilliant breakfast in the full blog post for this recipe. For now, here are the key steps, ingredients, and some great topping options for you to choose from. 



Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 160g frozen blueberries
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 130ml milk (plant-based or dairy)
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp lemon
  • ½ tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt (plant based or dairy, frozen or regular)
  • Your morning dose of water soluble CBD

Note: This quantity of ingredients creates a single serving. It can also be enjoyed as a drinkable smoothie if preferred. 



Here’s how to make this tasty breakfast bowl:

  1. First, add all of your ingredients (including water soluble CBD) to a blender and blend them until well combined.
  2. If needed, you can add extra ingredients to loosen or thicken the mixture (such as extra milk or frozen blueberries) and blend until you’re happy with the consistency.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl.
  4. Add your desired toppings to the bowl.
  5. Enjoy!


Optional toppings

These are the optional toppings we recommend trying with our CBD-infused blueberry muffin smoothie bowl.



There are various types of seeds you could choose to add as a topping for this recipe. They provide extra nutrients, healthy fats, and help to diversify the texture of the bowl. To keep it simple, you may want to add more flax and/or chia seeds. You could also choose other options, like hemp seeds. Going a slightly different direction, you could include pomegranate seeds for an extra fruity punch. Any of these options make great additions to our smoothie bowl. 


Coconut flakes

Coconut flakes make an ideal topping for this recipe. They, like seeds, are high in healthy fats and also offer some extra fibre. They’re very tasty and complement the other flavours in the bowl perfectly. If you have a particular affinity for coconut, you could even opt to add some into the original base recipe in addition to or instead of as a topping. 



Nuts are a great way to add some extra crunch, as well as healthy fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Whether you choose walnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, or a mixture of them all, nuts make an ideal topping for this recipe. If you’d like to add nuts in smaller pieces, you can crush or chop them into the size you prefer.



Granola is already a popular breakfast food, so it makes perfect sense to add it as a topping to your smoothie bowl. It offers some crunch and bolsters the meal with some extra nutrients. Now you can step up the regular old granola and yoghurt bowl by adding both to your smoothie bowl instead.


Extra fruit

This recipe centres around blueberries, so adding extra blueberries will obviously suit this recipe perfectly. You may also want to add other fruits, such as strawberries, blackberries, banana slices, raspberries, or acai berries. Depending on the texture you prefer, you can choose to include fresh and/or dried fruit. Either way, you’ll get some extra sweetness and nutrients while diversifying the fruity flavour of the recipe. 


Edible flowers

While edible flowers aren’t a particularly common option, they do make a great addition to smoothie bowls. Some of the most popular edible flower options include elderflower, pansies, viola flowers, and apple blossoms. In addition to the nice aesthetic they offer, they also contain nutrients and can add subtle flavours to the recipe. 


Recipe 4: Fruity Yoghurt Bark (snack)

When it’s time for a sweet treat, having a homemade CBD-infused snack that’s healthy and tasty ready to go is ideal. This recipe provides you with exactly that. Now you can satisfy your sweet tooth with no guilt while also taking your top-up dose of CBD. To learn more about why this makes such a great snack, check out the full blog post for this recipe. For now, here are the key steps, ingredients, and some customisation options that can help you make this recipe exactly how you like it.



In addition to a tray and some greaseproof paper, here are the key ingredients you’ll need:

  • 300ml-500ml of your favourite yoghurt (plant-based or dairy - we used soy vanilla yoghurt. The exact amount depends on the size of tray you use)
  • Fruit of your choice (we used 1-2 sliced strawberries and a handful of blueberries)
  • Additional toppings of your choice (more details below)
  • 2-4 pumps of water soluble CBD (this can be adjusted to fit your dose - just remember that this recipe will provide multiple servings, the exact number of which depends on how small or large the pieces you break off are)



Here are the simple steps to follow to create your own CBD infused yoghurt bark

  1. In a bowl, mix your water soluble CBD dose into your chosen yoghurt.
  2. Lay greaseproof paper over the tray you will freeze the bark on. 
  3. Pour your CBD yoghurt mixture onto the tray and smooth with a spoon until it’s evenly distributed.
  4. Complete any necessary prep required for your toppings (i.e. slicing strawberries)
  5. Add your fruit and any other toppings of your choice to the tray, distributing them as evenly as possible.
  6. Place your tray carefully into the freezer and allow your mixture to freeze for at least two hours or until the yoghurt has solidified.
  7. Remove the tray from the freezer and peel your bark from the greaseproof paper.
  8. Break your bark into pieces in the shapes and sizes you prefer.
  9. Enjoy!


Customisation options

In addition to switching up the yoghurt flavours and fruit options that we discussed above, you can also add extra toppings to tailor your yoghurt bark to your liking. Below are a few of our top suggestions for customising this recipe. 


Nuts and Seeds

If you’re looking to diversify the flavour and texture of your yoghurt bark, adding some nuts or seeds is a great way to go about it. They also provide extra nutrients and health benefits, the specifics of which depend on which nuts and/or seeds you add. Popular options include pistachios, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds. 



Granola, yoghurt, and fruit are a classic combination already, so adding granola to this recipe is a no brainer. In addition to tasting delicious, it also adds some extra crunch and provides its own health benefits. Depending on your preferences, you could add clusters of granola or crush it down and sprinkle it over the mixture. 



Most people will agree that the perfect addition to any sweet treat is some form of chocolate. While dark chocolate is the healthiest option, you may also choose to add milk or white chocolate if you prefer. This may be in the form of chocolate chips, chunks, or melted chocolate drizzled on top or incorporated into the yoghurt mixture. No matter how you choose to add it, chocolate is sure to enhance the already delicious flavours of this recipe. 


CBD infusions
