While you can buy CBD-infused coffee online, brewing it is no fun compared to making your own. All you need is your favorite coffee beans or grounds, a good Mint Chocolate CBD tincture, and a few other basic ingredients. This guide runs through three of the best CBD coffee latte recipes, and offers tips on how to put your own personal twists on our favorite brews.
Why CBD-Infused Coffee?
Infusing CBD into coffee has become a hot trend (catch the pun?), with cafes and coffee shops in many parts of the country existing solely to produce CBD-infused delights.
It may seem strange to put CBD oil in coffee, but there’s actually a method to the madness. First, a potent brew can mask the taste of CBD oil, which some users find unpleasant. Secondly, with 64% of American adults consuming coffee every day, adding CBD to your morning java can make it incredibly easy to get into a routine.
Effects of a Proper CBD Coffee Latte
For many users, CBD in coffee can actually take the edge off of caffeine jitters. Whether this is a placebo or a genuine effect is uncertain since no scientific studies exist to date, but anecdotal reports do suggest that those who get anxious after drinking coffee, could benefit from a CBD-infused batch.
Of course, in order to make your own decision, it’s always best to try it yourself. Tasting it is the only way to truly find out if a CBD coffee latte is for you. If you do want to give it a shot (another pun!), find out below how to make the best CBD-infused coffee latte you’ll ever taste.
How to Make a CBD Coffee Latte
Since cannabinoids are hydrophobic, you can’t add CBD to a black coffee – the oil will inevitably float to the top. However, lattes work great due to the abundance of fats in the steamed cream. Below are three recipes to get you started (let us know in the comments which one is your favorite).
CBD Pumpkin Spice Latte
This fall favorite will spice up your life, no doubt. It’s a seasonal go-to, but of course can be enjoyed any time of year.
- 2 cups milk (can substitute soy/oat)
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg)
- ½ cup coffee grounds
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Premium Jane Natural CBD Oil
- Brown sugar, to taste
- Place a saucepan over medium heat and add the milk, pumpkin puree, and brown sugar. Whisk it together until the puree and sugar dissolves.
- Continue cooking for about 3-5 minutes, constantly stirring, so it doesn’t boil.
- Remove the pan from the heat and add the pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, and CBD oil. Try not to add too much oil, but calculate how much you need.
- Whisk in the coffee grounds until the mixture becomes frothy, then heat for another minute until hot.
- Finally, divide between mugs and top with whipped cream and nutmeg.
CBD Chocolate Latte
This mocha-style chocolate latte is perfect for anyone who needs a comforting hug in a mug. It’s also ideal for those with a sweet tooth, thanks to the delicious taste of chocolate CBD oil.
- 2 cups coffee, brewed
- 1 cup milk (can substitute plant-based alternative)
- ¼ cup chocolate syrup
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Premium Jane Chocolate CBD Tincture
- Brew the coffee beforehand, then add to a saucepan over medium-low heat.
- Add all of the other ingredients, except the syrup, then whisk together until well-combined. Finally, add the syrup and allow to dissolve.
- Heat for around five minutes while stirring until it reaches the desired temperature.
CBD Mint Mocha Latte
This refreshing latte has a holiday twist. It pairs perfectly with our mint CBD oil; if you’re feeling extra festive, top with crushed candy canes.
- 1 cup milk of your choice
- 1 drop spearmint oil
- 1 cup coffee, already brewed
- ½ cup chocolate syrup
- Premium Jane Mint CBD Oil
- ½ teaspoon spirulina powder (optional)
- Brew the cup of coffee beforehand.
- Add the brewed coffee to a pot on the stove over medium-low heat. Add in the other ingredients, saving the chocolate syrup until last. Leave out the milk. Whisk continuously to dissolve them all.
- Use a milk frother to whip the milk to a frothy consistency. Slowly pour this into the mixture, leaving some aside.
- Divide the latte between mugs, then top the remaining milk froth. Optionally, add crushed candy cane on top.
