Beat the heat with frozen CBD

This summer has already had some of the hottest weather ever recorded and we are all feeling the effects of it. I feel like any day over ninety degrees slows me down and I can’t get enough of anything that is ice cold. This inspired me to play with the High Peaks flavored CBD seltzer waters with fresh fruit, a little sugar, and my brand-new popsicle molds! Because who doesn’t need a healthy, cold treat right now?

Here are some easy recipes to refresh these scorching days!

Watermelon Mint CBD-sicles

You will need:

  • 2 ounces High Peaks Watermelon Mint CBD Seltzer Water per popsicle
  • ½ ounce watermelon juice per popsicle
  • ½ ounce simple syrup per popsicle
  • ¼ cup chopped watermelon (about ¼ inch cubes) per popsicle
  • 1-2 wheel(s) of kiwi, skin peeled off, per popsicle

Add the watermelon juice and simple syrup to each popsicle mold then the chopped watermelon and the kiwi wheels. If the kiwi is large, cut in half to make it fit.

Slowly pour the seltzer water, about a ½ ounce at a time, in each popsicle mold. Let the bubbles settle before you add more seltzer water to the molds. Place popsicle sticks in each and then allow to freeze!

I like to give my popsicles plenty of time to freeze. When you take them out too soon, the sticks pop right out and disappointment follows. So to be safe, I recommend 4-6 hours in the freezer.

Black Cherry CBD-sicles

You will need:

  • 3 ounces High Peaks Black Cherry CBD Seltzer Water per popsicle
  • ½ ounce simple syrup per popsicle
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped and pitted cherries per popsicle

Add the chopped cherries and simple syrup to each popsicle mold. Top them slowly with the seltzer water, about ½ ounce at a time, as it will bubble fast. Allow bubbles to settle before adding more seltzer. Once the molds are filled add popsicle sticks. Allow to freeze 4-6 hours.

These two treats will satisfy your craving for something sweet without being loaded with sugars and unknown ingredients. Remember that High Peaks’ CBD seltzers are a hemp extract product and therefore excellent to introduce to your daily diet! Click here for more tips on making CBD part of your wellness routine!
