There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than with a cup of coffee that has the tastes and seasonings of the holidays. Sure, you can spend $8 on a fancy holiday coffee at a café, or you can make one at home AND get your CBD dose!
The most traditional holiday cookie has to be gingerbread. Warm spices, and a nostalgic taste are all it takes to get us in the holiday spirit, so we thought we would put gingerbread and coffee together to make the perfect CBD latte for the holidays. Enjoy this seasonal tea along with your regular CBD dose. And this recipe also includes a homemade gingerbread syrup!
Cozy CBD Gingerbread Latte
- 1 cup of CBD Fusion Coffee High Energy Blend
- 2 tablespoons of gingerbread syrup *see below*
- ¼ cup of milk or plant-based milk
- 1 Gingerbread man cookie as an optional garnish – but think it’s necessary 😉
- ¾ cup of water
- ⅔ cup of cougar
- 3 tablespoons of molasses
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
To Make The Syrup:
In a saucepan, bring the gingerbread syrup ingredients to a boil. Sit occasionally. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, turn off the heat and let the syrup cool. Once it is completely cookies, pour it into an airtight container – if you have a glass syrup container with a pour spout, even better! The syrup can be stored in your refrigerator for up to a week.
Froth Your Milk!
On the stovetop in a saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer on the stovetop and be sure that it does not come to a boil. Pour the heated milk into a French Press, put the lid on, and move the plunger up and down, making sure to hold down the lid…or…..head and froth the milk at the same time using an electric milk frother. If you have an espresso machine, you can froth the milk using the steam wand. In a nutshell – choose the milk frothing method of your choice!
Assemble The Coffee
Pour the coffee into your favourite festive mug, and stir in the gingerbread syrup to your taste. Add the frothed milk, garnish with a dusting of ground cinnamon and of course…a gingerbread man!
The best part about this holiday, coffee is the added CBD dose from your High Energy blend. Let’s be honest, while the holidays are arguably the best time of the year, it’s also the most stressful. So skip the café costs, and enjoy your coffee with your usual CBD dose so you can coast through this holiday season. And if things are getting really crazy, you can step up your dose by adding a few drops of our Hemp CBD Oils.
