Although I am myself a mother to two small children, in our family, celebrating Mother’s Day means spoiling my wife with breakfast in bed – after she’s gotten to sleep in! My wife is also not a THC-lover but has been experimenting with CBD recently, so I decided to help her have the ultimate day of relaxation beginning with a CBD breakfast in bed.
After waking up early to make sure our three year-old and nine-month old wouldn’t wake my wife up, I snuck into the kitchen to whip up a batch of CBD lemon ricotta pancakes topped with a berry compote and paired with a MOM-OSA mocktail, all infused with Care by Design’s 18:1 ratio drops. With 16 mg. CBD and 1 mg. THC/ml, these drops are an ideal starting place for the cannacurious mom in your life and incorporating it into this breakfast couldn’t be easier!
When making infused foods in my home, I am always careful to watch my daughter and our dogs closely, so practice safe infusions. Because I prefer to not make infused foods my kids will want to eat when I’m cooking around them, I like to keep my infusions to sauces and sides that can be added onto other, non-infused foods, so I also wanted to create a mixed berry compote that could be easily set aside for an “adults only” topping. This method also has the added perk of making breakfast for your kids too, so it’s a win-win all around!
And of course, no breakfast in bed is complete without something fun to drink, so I whipped up a drink that matches my mom energy level: Meet the MOM-OSA, easy to make, but high on fun and flavor.
Serve it all up on a nice tray (don’t forget some flowers!), keep your kids out of the room, and serve the mom in your life this CBD-enriched breakfast – then let them go back to sleep for a little!
Makes 12 small pancakes
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs, then stir in the eggs, milk, ricotta and vanilla and stir until well combined and smooth. Stir in your desired dose of Care by Design drops.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, until flour is incorporated. Do not overmix. Let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes.
In a well buttered cast iron skillet, add ¼ cup of batter into a hot pan. Watch for the edges of the pancake to dry, and for bubbles to form in the batter. When the bubbles are popped, flip, and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve with blueberry compote.
In a small saucepan, combine raspberries, 1 cup blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Heat over medium heat for 8-9 minutes, stirring frequently, until berries are popped and the juice begins to thicken. Add remaining half cup of blueberries and reduce for another 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Care by Design CBD drops dose of your choice. Serve on lemon ricotta blueberry pancake.
Add a preferred dose of CBD drops directly into the bottom of the Champagne flute. Fill flute halfway with orange juice. Top with high quality sparkling water. Enjoy!
