Alternate Infusion Options
With the summer entertaining season upon us, I am excited to share my new favorite recipe for these cannabis mango fruit tarts.
These vibrant fruits are so deliciously sweet that they feel like a treat, but they’re extremely nutrient-dense and can be a wholesome addition to anyone’s daily diet.
Whether preparing a full sit-down cannabis-infused meal or hosting a Memorial or Labor Day cookout, having a go-to dessert recipe that is not only delicious but nutritious is key.
As with all things cannabis, there is more than one way to infuse a recipe.
Here I will share with you my preferred ways to infuse this recipe, along with a few other options.
Cannabis Coconut Oil or Cannabutter
Used interchangeably, infusing oil or butter with cannabis is an easy way to extract a spectrum of compounds like CBD or THC from the cannabis plant and get them into the food you are eating.
You will want to ensure you have this recipe prepared before diving into making cannabis mango tarts at home.
The process involves cannabis decarboxylation and then oil infusion, which takes approximately 5 hours.
Once you have your cannabis oil or butter ready, you can go ahead and prepare these tarts.
Just remember, cannabis coconut oil is vegan and plant-based if you’re planning around any dietary restrictions.
If you are a medical marijuana patient or live in a recreationally legal state, chances are you may have access to cannabis concentrates.
You can easily use cannabis concentrates in this recipe.
From distillate or CO2 oil to shatter or wax, and FECO or RSO, all can work for this recipe.
Depending on your concentrate, you will want to ensure that your cannabis concentrate is decarbed first if needed.
If you are unsure if your cannabis concentrate needs to be decarbed, you can check this guide here.
Once you know whether or not you need to decarb your concentrate, you can gently warm it up and mix it into the mango cream in this recipe.
How much you will add is up to you and your taste preferences, but 1mL or 1 gram is a good place to start.
Gluten-Free Fruit Tart Crust
When mixed, dates and cashews make the perfect crust to hold the creamy mango cream filling and fresh fruit.
This gluten-free tart crust is baked, bringing out the toasted flavor of the cashews and dates.
Because this crust is made of just four simple ingredients, it is naturally gluten-free, which makes it a dessert nearly everyone can enjoy.
Does Baking the Cannabis Oil at 350°F Destroy the THC?
Good question, and no, it does not.
It’s kind of like when you roast a chicken.
You put it in the oven at 350°F for 1-2 hours, but the chicken itself only ever needs to get to the internal temp of 165°F until it’s done.
When baking, the item itself, in this case, the gluten-free crust, should not get to 350°F because it would burn up.
You don’t want or need to get up to 350°F; you just want the item cooked through or to 165°F.
This low temperature does not destroy THC or other cannabinoids.
Homemade Mango Cream Filling
This recipe has no added sugar but is delightfully sweet, thanks to the delicious mango cream filling in the center of the tart.
Made by blending just two simple ingredients, fresh mango and homemade coconut milk yogurt, this cream is ready in just 60-seconds.
If you do not have homemade coconut milk yogurt, simply swap your favorite full-fat yogurt in its place.
Whether it be dairy-based or plant-based, the choice is yours.
I prefer the homemade coconut milk yogurt for the sweetness the coconut lends to the tropical vibe of this dessert.
How to Pick the Perfect Mango
For this recipe, you will use fresh mango for the cream and the fresh mango slices.
Here is a quick overview of mangos taste, usage, and tips for picking the perfect one:
Mango Taste & Usage
Many people don’t realize that there are six main varieties of mangos sold in the U.S. at different times throughout the year, which means mangos are always in season.
Each variety has a distinct and unique color and taste.
Various Mango Varieties Include:
- Tommy Atkins
- Honey (also called Ataulfos)
How to Choose The Perfect Mango:
When searching for a perfectly ripe mango, it is important to focus on feel, not color, because every variety is a different color.
A ripe mango will give slightly, indicating soft flesh inside.
How Do You Cut a Mango?
Many people are intimidated by cutting a mango, but there’s no reason to be; it’s simple!
- Start by locating the stem. The long, flat seed runs from stem to nose.
- Cut around the pit by making two cuts on either side of the stem.
- Finish by dicing, slicing, and scooping the flesh with a spoon.
Whether enjoyed in a smoothie, piled high on pancakes or oatmeal, stuffed in a taco, added to a salad or grain bowl, stirred into a salsa, or simply eaten whole with juice dripping down your chin, there are endless ways to soak up this tropical flavor all year round.
