Hark. The first installation of our seasonal cannabis recipes: Creamy Dream Egg Nug. But first, a word of advice…
When it comes to cannabis consumption, no matter the time of year, remember the golden rule: start low and go slow. And just to be clear — our recipes call for cannabis butter and cannabis-infused oils that you've made on your own.* Start with a strain that contains equal or greater amounts of CBD than THC, note exactly how many grams you add to the recipe, and test it out using just a little bit to see if you’re comfortable with the product before cooking with any sizeable amount. We recommend beginning with no more than the equivalent of 2.5 mg of THC, and always waiting until the next day (at least) before increasing.
Make sure to carefully mark any foods and products which contain any amount of cannabis, and always keep them out of the reach of minors.
Creamy Dreamy Egg Nug
- 2 cups of homogenized milk (3.25% M.F.)
- 1 cup of table cream (18% M.F.)
- 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 6 eggs**
- 1 cup of confectioners sugar
- Coconut oil (we recommend Boaty McBoatface-infused)
- Take out your trusty blender and pour in the milk and cream. Really splash ‘em in there.
- Add the nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, leaving aside just a dash of the first two for future sprinkling.
- Crack the eggs (Did you know they call it ‘chicken milk’ in French? What a world.) and toss ‘em in with the rest of this heavenly mix.
- Add the confectioners sugar followed by a splash of the coconut oil.
- Whack it heartily on high speed until it becomes frothy and thick.
- Pour into your most festive glasses and finish by sprinkling the remaining nutmeg and cinnamon on top to taste.
Aaaand you’re welcome.
*Disclaimer: If you're new to this whole “cooking with cannabis” thing and aren’t comfortable making your own cannabis-infused butter or oils, we recommend purchasing a balanced cannabis oil and using that. Start by adding just 2.5 mg of that oil to the recipe. Remember to start low and go slow, and always wait at least 24 hours before increasing the dosage.
Oh, and even though these treats are tasty for adults, they MUST be kept out of reach of children. As with all other cannabis products, store any cannabis-infused food in a location not accessible by children. Lockable cases are available for purchase, too. When it comes to keeping cannabis away from kids, you can never be too careful.
**Consuming raw or undercooked eggs, meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or unpasteurized milk may increase your risk of foodborne illness. Proceed with caution.
