Today I decided to combine two of my favorite things.. dessert and CBD oil! Scroll down to see why I’m a firm believer in CBD oil!
This cheesecake is super easy to make and contains less than 10 ingredients! Its the perfect dessert to bring to a holiday party or get together. I’m working on a recipe for a homemade graham cracker pie crust, but until then I’m using Keebler® Graham Pie Crust. No worries, this store bought crust is 100% vegan!
- 2 cups organic raw cashews **soaked for at least 5 hours (if using high speed blender, this step is not necessary)**
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1 1/2 containers vegan cream cheese **(I use Kite Hill)**
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 4 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp black strap molasses
- 1 tbsp CBD oil
- Keebler® Ready Crust® Graham Pie Crust
Add cheesecake filling ingredients to high speed blender or food processor.
Blend for 1-2 min. or until smooth.
Pour cheesecake filling into graham cracker crust evenly. Smooth over using spoon.
Place in freezer for approximately 3 hrs.
Add desired toppings or enjoy as is! I topped mine off with fresh fruit and cacao nibs and it was delicious!
If you do not want to add the CBD oil to the entire batch you can add a few drops to each individual slice.
For this recipe, I used Lazarus Naturals 3000 mg CBD Tincture.
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, has many healing benefits. It works as a natural pain reliever and has anti-inflammatory properties which can provide an alternative to over-the-counter and prescription drugs, which often have many side effects. It has also shown to help with anxiety disorders, acne, and much more. Click here to learn more about the benefits of CBD oil.
Where should you buy?
When you are spending a lot of money on a product you want to make sure that you are getting the best deal. You also want to make sure the company you are buying from is reliable. When buying CBD oil, it is important to look at the price per milligram. It may appear to be a good deal when in actuality it is much more expensive. (I fell into this trap the first time I purchased CBD oil.. Whoops!) After lots of searching, I found that Lazarus Naturals offers the best price per milligram and they are an extremely reliable company. All of their products are third party tested to ensure that their standards of quality are met!
