Why You Will Love This Recipe

And honestly, there is nothing wrong with enjoying a Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s once a season if that is something you enjoy.

But members of my Well With Cannabis Community have been requesting healthy-infused recipes, and it’s that time of year!

Drinking this version leaves me feeling so much better, mentally and physically, and doesn’t leave me feeling like I’ve missed out on anything.

Plus, various ways to infuse this shake with cannabis suit your needs and preferences are outlined below.

What You’ll Need

  • Frozen banana: throw a few bananas in the freezer now if you don’t have any
  • Spinach: baby spinach, or cannabis fan leaves, are perfect
  • Milk: your choice; you can use daily milk, plant-based milk, or cannabis milk
  • Avocado: for the perfect, creamy consistency
  • Mint: fresh mint leaves are best, but you can use mint extract if needed
  • Protein powder: optional, but it helps to boost the nutritional value of this smoothie. I prefer unflavored collagen peptides.
  • Vanilla: extract is best
  • Bliss Beverage Booster: Each pump provides 3mg of THC and 3mg of CBD per serving. Or feel free to use any of the other options listed under the alternate infusion options section below.

Note: a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions is located in the recipe card below.

Alternate Infusion Options

It is super easy to create a cannabis-infused shamrock shake at home in as little as five minutes using only a handful of ingredients, many of which you may already have on hand or can easily pick up from the store.

What’s more, each of these ingredients is wholesome and provides your body with important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals that are needed to help keep you feeling happy.

My version of the Shamrock Shake is sweet, minty, creamy, and delicious.

And if you haven’t frozen bananas yet, you’re missing out.

When frozen and blended, they make a wonderfully delicious, smooth, and creamy texture that is mild in flavor to allow the other ingredients to shine.

Combined with half an avocado, this smoothie is unbelievably creamy and satisfying.

As I always say, cannabis edibles can be much more than the typical cannabis brownie or chocolate chip cookie.

There’s plenty of room for healthy cannabis recipes, too!

There’s also more than one way to make a delicious cannabis Shamrock Shake.

Below we will go over the most popular methods for infusing this delicious drink.

This cannabis cooking oil made with THC+CBD will take all of the guesswork out of cooking with cannabis, allowing you to infuse any recipe.

Raw Cannabis Leaves

Fresh cannabis leaves do not produce CBD and THC like mature flower buds, so many people discard them. 

They do, however, contain essential nutrients, antioxidants, and cannabinoid acids like THCA and CBDA, meaning they are not useless and in fact, quite valuable (1). 

Large fan leaves are the most common parts of the cannabis plant eaten raw or used in recipes, although the raw cannabis flower buds can also be juiced. 

One of the best ways to harness the goodness of cannabis leaves is to consume them in raw form in a salad or blend them as we do in this recipe.

If you have access to cannabis leaves, you can swap the 1 cup of packed spinach for 1 cup of packed cannabis leaves.

If you do not have access to raw cannabis leaves, no worries; we have plenty of other options below.

Decarbed Cannabis Flower

To experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD, the cannabis flower must first undergo decarboxylation

Without decarboxylation, you may not experience the full range of beneficial health effects of cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.

The process is simple and involves baking the cannabis flower at 240°F for 40 minutes for THC flower and 90 minutes for CBD flower.

Once your flower is decarbed, you can grind it to your preferred consistency and add it directly into this smoothie while blending.

It is essential to be aware of your tolerance and decide how much decarbed cannabis flower to add.

A good starting point would be 1-2 teaspoons. I recommend starting low and going slow to assess your needs and tolerance levels.

Cannabis Tincture

A traditional cannabis tincture is an alcohol-based cannabis infusion and will blend into the coffee the best of any method described here.

Of course, this method will be strong because you’re adding cannabis and alcohol to your drink, so you won’t want to add much, just a few milliliters.

Alternatively, you could evaporate off some of the alcohol in your tincture as if you were making FECO receive more of the cannabis benefits without the alcohol.

Cannabis-Infused Oil

It may be a surprise to hear of adding oil to a smoothie, but many of my Well With Cannabis CommunityWell With Cannabis Community members swear by it.

You don’t need a lot, just a teaspoon or two, to easily infuse this drink and give your smoothie the kick you’re looking for.

It is totally up to you and your preferences on what kind of oil you want to add; some popular choices include:

Just be aware if you’re adding MCT oil, it has been known to cause digestive distress in some people.

Leftover Cannabis Pulp

This is one where I say don’t knock it until you try it!

Leftover cannabis pulp is the plant material leftover from making a basic cannabis recipe – like cannabis butter, cannabis coconut oil, or even cannabis olive oil.

While many people typically throw the leftover pulp or ‘sludge’ out, many of my community members have reported saving and using the leftovers in many different cannabis recipes.

The best way to add leftover cannabis pulp to your smoothie is to add it to the blender in step 1 and blend it with the other ingredients.
