If you’re into cannabis, celebrating all things green probably is a year-round ordeal–not just limited to St. Patrick’s Day. But we stumbled upon a sweet St. Patty’s Day recipe that could and should be celebrated more than on the Irish holiday because why wouldn’t you want a green cannabis-infused milkshake on a random Tuesday afternoon in the middle of May? Or on April 20? Or on June 12? or today!
The traditional St. Patrick’s Day food needs a sprucing up, too. I don’t know about you, but the first time I was served corned beef hash, I was expecting to feel heavily medicated afterward. Little did I know I was in for a salty, meaty carb-loaded mound of food. Honestly, who uses the word hash without actually including hashish in it? St. Patty’s Day deserves a medicated milkshake to become a part of its tradition. And thanks to Mondo Cannabis Dust, it can finally happen.
Mondo Meds have been featured in Bon Appétite magazine and Rolling Stone for its versatile uses and magical ability to completely dissolve. You can mix it in with coffee, sprinkle it on food, and dump a scoop in your smoothie or juice. The best part about it is it’s designed to tackle anxiety without turning you into a medicated, non-communicative extraterrestrial. The powder contains coconut oil, cacao butter, and three parts of the cannabis plant: THC (the compound in cannabis responsible for getting you high) as well as CBD and CBN (compounds that don’t have psychoactive properties but are used to treat pain and stress). How it dissolves, however? That still remains a mystery– and Mondo’s top-secret weapon.
So here it is: the green milkshake you should enjoy all the time, and also on St. Patrick’s Day. Please note the powder is fast acting, and it’s said that you might feel the effects as quickly as under 10 minutes. Even though you won’t get loaded, it’s still vital to proceed with caution.
Here’s what you’ll need to enjoy the infused fun:
- 2-4 scoops of Mondo Cannabis Dust
- 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1¼ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon mint extract
- 9 drops green food coloring
- Whipped cream & chocolate sauce to garnish
Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Grab your blender and add the ice cream, milk, mint extract, and food coloring
Step 2: MONDO It! Add your desired amount of Mondo powedr to the blender. Just remember: starting out small is always the best. You can always add more! Plus, it’s fast acting so you won’t have to wait a few hours to see if you feel the effects. If it’s not at your desired potency, scoop a few more heapings into your milkshake and enjoy the ride.
Step 3: Blend to a smooth consistency
Step 4: Drizzle chocolate on the walls of 2 glasses and add the shake to the glasses
Step 5: Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
