We use a lot of yogurt in my house. And I start many of my mornings with a delicious parfait of some sort. It’s so versatile – you can really have fun mixing and matching flavors and toppings.

I’ve been creating recipes for Barlean’s for several years now, and finding new and unique ways to use their products is one of my favorite challenges.

When they sent over their most recent new product release, this Seriously Delicious CBD Hemp Oil Chocolate Mint, I was immediately intrigued.

What is CBD?

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about what exactly CBD is.

The main question people ask, at least in my experience, is if CBD gets you “high”. No, no it does not. While CBD comes from the cannabis plant, it’s not the same thing as THC, which is what is typically referred to when people are talking about the euphoric feelings associated with cannabis.

Hemp and marijuana both come from the same plant family, Cannabis sativa L, but they have some significant differences.

Barlean’s has a ton of information on this CBD FAQ page including this tidbit:

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is one of over 100 known phytocannabinoids that naturally occur in cannabis plants. It’s also one of the most prolific cannabinoids found in hemp plants. CBD has very low THC – less than 0.3% – which is why CBD doesn’t make people feel high. In fact, CBD can actually counteract the euphoric/high feeling caused by THC. CBD continues to gain popularity as studies reveal its potential benefits for human health.

How do you take CBD?

CBD comes in many different forms. Barlean’s offers several different types of CBD hemp oil products, including softgels and oil that you squeeze from a dropper directly under your tongue. I’ve seen it in gummy form elsewhere, too.

This new formulation, the Seriously Delicious CBD Hemp Oil Chocolate Mint is a really unique way to enjoy the benefits of CBD without taking pills.

As of today, there aren’t a ton of CBD hemp oil recipes out there. As with any ingredient, finding a variety of ways to utilize it in the kitchen can be tricky.

With this particular product, there is 25mg of CBD per teaspoon. You can mix this super creamy oil into smoothies or parfaits, or drizzle it on top of toast. It could also be mixed into energy balls, fat bombs, frostings, or “nice cream”.

The only caveat when cooking with CBD hemp oil is that it can’t be heated over 225°F.

How to make a Tropical Fruit + Chocolate CBD Parfait

My husband and I were out for our 12th wedding anniversary last week and we had an incredible espresso chocolate cake with passion fruit mousse. The flavor combo was heavenly and took us right back to our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic.

The chocolate mint flavor of the CBD hemp oil is subtle but delicious, and I figured it would be the perfect accompaniment for a tropical breakfast bowl!

I love the flavor of passion fruit but hadn’t ever bought them to enjoy at home before, so when I spotted them at my local supermarket, I took it as a sign!

To assemble this Tropical Fruit + Chocolate CBD Parfait recipe, you first need to toast some flaked coconut (I like buying unsweetened) in a dry skillet. Make sure to keep an eye on it, because it goes from golden brown to burnt very quickly.

Once it’s nicely golden, pour it out of the skillet into a bowl to stop the cooking process.

Then all you need to do is portion out some Greek yogurt (I use plain, but feel free to use vanilla if you like things a bit sweeter), top it with a drizzle of the CBD hemp oil, scoop the seeds of a passion fruit out on top, then add a few slices of strawberry and some toasted coconut.

How to tell if passion fruit is ripe

Choosing passion fruit from the store can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be! My market had a sign above all of the tropical fruits describing how to determine if they’re ripe.

Passion fruit is usually smooth on the outside, but if you let it sit on the counter for a few days, it starts getting wrinkly. That’s actually when it’s at its best!

If you want more information there’s a great article on the Rachael Ray Mag site that talks all about how to shop for and use passion fruit at home.
