In this guide:

Why add CBD to smoothies?

While research into the benefits of CBD oil is ongoing, there have been some positive evidence that CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis and general well-being. 

While we would never recommend you come off prescribed medication, and doctor’s advice should always be prioritised, CBD has been suggested to help maintain healthy, balanced bodily processes.

CBD smoothies provide an easy way to make the most of these benefits, allowing you to mix CBD oil with other beneficial herbs and nutritious ingredients to get an easy and tasty boost. 

It can also be an excellent way to take CBD for people who dislike CBD oil’s natural, earthy flavour.

With that in mind, we’ve put together some of the best CBD smoothie recipes you’ll find online – some for their nutritious content, and some just for fun – you can consider this your one-stop resource for CBD smoothies and shakes!

6 of the best CBD smoothie recipes

Savoury tropical CBD smoothie

This one is relatively unique in that it’s savoury and not sweet – ideal as a morning nutritional boost or to wash down a healthy lunch for those who find regular smoothies a little too sweet for that early in the day!

It also packs a wide range of nutrients; ginger and turmeric offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.

It’s also effortless to make, with no preparation necessary

All you need to do is throw the following ingredients into your smoothie maker or blender and mix until smooth:

  • 2 drops of unflavoured broad spectrum CBD oil
  • 1 whole orange, peeled
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • ⅔ cup of coconut water
  • ½ cup of mango chunks
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • ½ teaspoon peeled and grated ginger
  • 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric (ideally peeled and grated from fresh but you can use dried if necessary)
  • A pinch of salt and cayenne pepper for flavour
  • ½ cup ice cubes

You can also use frozen mango chunks instead of fresh, making this even quicker and easier to make and removing the need to add ice cubes.

Feeling adventurous? 

Add ½ cup of diced papaya to make this even more tropical, if that’s even possible.

Green superfood CBD smoothie

This one is about getting as many nutrients and healthy ingredients as possible into one CBD shake, covering all of the nutritional bases. 

It’s high in fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and a decent source of protein while remaining low in fat, making it an ideal post-workout recovery drink, a healthy morning shake to get you ready for the day, or even a hangover cure!

The beauty of this one is that the taste, while refreshing and tart, is relatively neutral, meaning you can easily customise it or add extra ingredients, as long as they aren’t overpowering enough to be noticed in terms of flavour.

Try adding the following to your blender or smoothie maker:

  • Half a ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup of kale
  • 1/2 cup of spinach
  • ½ cup of almonds
  • ½ cup of cashews
  • 5 drops of unflavoured full spectrum CBD oil
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder

Simply blend all of the ingredients until it forms a smooth CBD shake. 

If the consistency isn’t to your preference, you can easily make it thicker or thinner by adding coconut meat or more coconut water.

CBD breakfast lassi

Lassi is a traditional Indian drink made from milk, yoghurt, mango and other ingredients and is an excellent option to get your healthy fats and energy in the morning, especially for those who struggle to find the time to eat a solid breakfast.

But as you’ll be aware, if you follow our blog, one of the best ways to ingest CBD and get the highest bioavailability is to mix CBD oil into some form of fat first.

Lassi provides an excellent option, providing you with a slow burn of energy, healthy fats, and nutrients mixed with a rapid and potent dose of CBD.

Mix together:

  • ½ cup of whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon of salted, grass-fed butter
  • 1 cup of plain Greek yoghurt
  • 5 drops of unflavoured, full spectrum CBD oil

You can also use semi-skimmed milk if you prefer but this will increase the lactose ratio to fat and decrease the absorption rate of the CBD, so it is generally not advised.

Next, blend your CBD/milk/butter/yoghurt mixture with the rest of the ingredients as listed below:

  • 1kg of mangoes, peeled, pitted and diced (or from frozen)
  • 2 diced peaches
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

You can also add honey and fresh mint leaves to taste.

Oat & banana CBD power shake

This one is a simple, easy-to-make classic energy-packed all-day breakfast drink, and a dash of CBD oil takes it from an ideal breakfast to a game-changer.

Perfect for athletes and those who need lots of energy!

Simply blend the following together until smooth:

  • 5 drops of unflavoured broad spectrum CBD oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 whole banana
  • ½ cup plain Greek yoghurt
  • ¼ cup rolled oats

Very berry CBD smoothie

This very berry CBD smoothie is bursting with colourful goodness and can be made with freshly picked or frozen berries.

If using fresh fruit instead of frozen, we recommend adding 1 cup of ice cubes to ensure your smoothie is cold. 

You can also customise the berry mix as much as you like, for example, adding blackberries or substituting one berry for another. (But this is our favourite blend!).

One of these bad boys will give you your 5-a-day in one satisfying gulp, with the added benefits of CBD.

Here are your ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 5 drops of unflavoured broad spectrum CBD oil
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Decadent coco-chocolate CBD smoothie

This CBD smoothie is a little more fun and may be the best option for those with an aversion to healthy foods! 

The coconut helps to carry the CBD and the dark chocolate gives an extra kick of antioxidants to keep your immune system happy.

Simply blend the following together:

  • 5 drops of unflavoured broad spectrum CBD oil
  • ½ cup of chocolate milk
  • 1 block of dark chocolate
  • ½ cup grated coconut (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut milk

You can also add a pinch of sea salt to taste, or switch out the chocolate milk for ½ cup of regular milk and use 5 blocks of dark chocolate for a darker, less sugary version.

What is the best CBD oil for making smoothies & shakes?

If you’re wondering which CBD oil to use for your smoothies, here are some things to look out for:

  • Third-party lab-tested CBD 
    Look for CBD that comes with a Certificate of Analysis. This will give you peace of mind that your CBD is high-quality.
  • Broad spectrum CBD oil 
    This means it contains all of the beneficial ingredients from the hemp plant, without THC, and is a must if you’re taking CBD oil for the potential health benefits.
  • Unflavoured CBD
    Flavoured CBD oil can change the taste of your smoothie and may contain artificial flavourings and sweeteners.
  • Organic and ethically grown 
    This ensures that your CBD is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides, and these are generally things you should look out for in any product you plan on ingesting!

As long as a CBD product is all of the above, it is likely to be just fine to help you begin your CBD smoothie journey!
