This season, up your cookie dipping game with a DIY marijuana milk. Fundamentally, what you are undertaking right here is infusing the milk with marijuana by gradually cooking it more than low heat. You are left with a thick, slightly sweet, distinctly marijuana-scented batch of milk which can be made use of either as a drinking liquid or as an ingredient for cooking or baking. I personally assume it tastes wonderful slightly warmed with a small honey, but you can add some wherever you’d ordinarily use milk: your morning cereal, a batch of buttercream, or stirred into coffee.

Canna-Milk

Tends to make about ¾ cup (the milk reduces slightly throughout cooking)

  • 1 cup milk
  • About three grams marijuana (see recipe notes, under)

1. Decarboxylate the marijuana. Scatter the marijuana on a lined, rimmed baking sheet toast at 240 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, turning a couple of instances all through the baking. Take away from the oven, let cool absolutely, and then grind it finely. You can also grind it prior to, but I obtain that it is simpler to grind soon after this heating method as it is drier.

two. Pour the milk into a saucepan. Add the marijuana. It will float at very first, but as it warms it will grow to be far more combined. Spot the saucepan more than medium heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring sometimes to discourage scorching on the bottom of the pot.

three. As soon as the mixture comes to a simmer (with bubbles about the edges and steam coming off the mixture, but not boiling), lessen the heat to the lowest setting. Cook, uncovered, for 30-45 minutes, stirring just about every couple of minutes and creating certain that the mixture is not acquiring so hot that it scorches the bottom of the pan, and that it is not forming a “skin” on prime (if it does, just break it up and stir it about) If it appears like the milk is lowering a lot, add ¼ cup far more. The mixture will thicken slightly as it cooks it will also commence to take on a slightly greenish-yellow tint.

Recipe notes

Dosage: dosing your marijuana milk can be difficult since of the differing strengths of strains and your private tolerance. I personally located that about three grams per cup of milk was a superior quantity. For me, every single “serving” was about ¼ cup. So, every single serving had about 1 gram of marijuana, which for me is a small far more than the typical joint. If the typical joint is far bigger or smaller sized for you, you can adjust this recipe accordingly.

Storage: Retailer your canna-milk as you would shop normal milk, in a sealed container in the fridge. Maintain in thoughts, the expiration date on your milk is nonetheless going to be the expiration date for your canna-milk, so consume with that in thoughts!
