How do you make weed ice cream?
I scream, you scream, we all scream for weed ice cream
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably come up with the high-dea for cannabis-infused ice cream. Unfortunately, we don’t think any cannabis-infused ice cream trucks exist (although that would be awesome). So, we’ve come up with three different ways to make cannabis-infused ice cream at home, any time.
Turning store-bought ice cream into cannabis-infused ice cream
The easiest way to create weed ice cream is to simply infuse a pint of your favorite flavor with a cannabis tincture.
Let your pint sit on the counter until it’s soft but not completely melted. We recommend using this time to smoke a bowl, but that’s just us. Once your ice cream reaches chunky soup status, dump it into a medium bowl and stir until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of your favorite cannabis tincture (175mg THC) and mix it up. Pour back into your pint container and re-freeze. Be sure label your ice cream to avoid unintentional dosing, and enjoy!
How do I make weed ice cream using cannabutter?
If you keep cannabutter in your fridge on the reg, then this weed ice cream recipe is for you. If not, no worries. You can always follow our step-by-step guide for making cannabutter.
What you’ll need:
- 4 Tablespoons Cannabutter
- 2 Cups Whipping Cream
- 14 oz can of condensed milk
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- ¼ Cup Chopped Mint
- ½ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips (optional)
How to make it:
Using a hand or stand mixer, whip your cream at med/high until firm peaks begin to form.
Next, combine room temperature cannabutter, condensed milk, vanilla, and chopped mint in a separate bowl.
Fold this mixture into your cream and mix until combined. Pour the mixture into a freezer safe container and freezer for a couple hours. Remove and stir in chocolate chips. Return to freezer for an additional 4-6 hours.
If not adding chocolate, freeze for 6-8 hours and you’re ready to scoop!
How do I make cannabis-infused ice cream using weed cream?
First things first, you’ll need to make your weed cream. *Pro tip, make a double batch and save half for cannabis infused coffee.
How to make weed cream:
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream
- 5-10 Grams of Flower (broken up)
Combine the heavy cream and marijuana in a medium saucepan. Cook just below a simmer for about an hour. THC activates around 220 degrees Fahrenheit, but higher temps can harsh your buzz, so it’s important not to let the mixture boil.
Then, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Because some of the cream will evaporate during this process, you’ll need to combine your infused cream with non-weed cream until you’re at about 2 cups.
Mix with a stand or hand mixer at medium/high for about 30 seconds and then chill until ready to use.
How to make cannabis-infused ice cream with weed cream:
- One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
- Pinch fine salt
- 2 cups weed cream, cold
Whisk together the condensed milk, vanilla and salt in a large bowl; set aside.
Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form or about 2 minutes.
Fold about half of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture with a rubber spatula until combined, then fold into the whipped cream until well blended. Pour into a chilled, freezer safe container, and freeze, covered, until thick and creamy or about 2 hours. If desired, swirl in any mix-ins like crushed Oreos, candy, or chocolate with a spoon. Pop it back in the freezer for 3 or 4 more hours, or until it’s scoopable. Serve and enjoy!
