Good Hemp’s Top 5 Summer Desserts 🍦
Hello summer time! ☀️
We have racked through our brains and have found 5 perfect hempy & summery desserts for you to make at home. If any of these desserts tickle your fancy and you decide to cave in and make them, don’t forget to take a picture of them and tag us on Instagram! 🍦
🥭Mango and passionfruit pavlova
If you have never made a vegan meringue, now is the time. Otherwise known as chickpea water, aquafaba is a great egg replacer as it’s great at binding ingredients together. Gone are the days we drain chickpeas over the sink. By whisking aquafaba up with powdered sugar, cream of tartar and xanthan gum you get a light and fluffy meringue that no one could tell is plant-based! If you want a twist on the classic pavlova, you can add tropical fruit such as mango and passionfruit or you could keep it classic and add strawberries and blueberries.
This dessert is obviously a great choice if you have a lot of people coming around as it is a great sharing dessert and you can use up any fruit you have in your fridge and top it on your meringue base.
🍑Peach and rose ice lollies
We’ve been waiting all year to whip out the salads, smoothie bowls and ice lollies, so we thought it would be rude not to add an ice lolly to one of our favourite summer recipes. The ice lolly mixture itself can be whisked all together in a couple of minutes but you will have to wait 6-8 hours for the ice lollies to freeze – they are best if you make them the evening before so you can wake up the next day and look forward to an ice lolly for a summery snack in the afternoon.
These ice lollies contain our Good Hemp Seed Milk – not only will your taste buds thank you, the rest of your body will be grateful for all the omega-3 goodness. We know you know omega is good for you, but completely understand if you don’t know why. There are so many benefits from boosting your immune system to hair health and more.
👩🍳Raspberry crumble bars
If you have leftover raspberries or even strawberries this is the perfect recipe because you will end up mushing the fruit into a jam anyway! These Hemp & raspberry crumble bars have a thick jammy layer of raspberries nestled between a cookie base and a hemp seed & oat crumble topping. They’re vegan, gluten-free, low in sugar and easy to make. If raspberries aren’t your favourite fruit, any berry would also work really well for this recipe as well!
These crumble bars can be batched cooked and if needed they can also be frozen before cooking. The base of these bars contain our Good Hemp Seed Hearts – our little hemp seed hearts are light and nutty, and can be used in pretty much every way imaginable. They are a natural source of vegan omega 3, protein and fibre – what more could you ask for?
🍦Ty Dye CBD ice cream
Made with earthy hemp and bright seasonal berries, be as creative as you like making these tie-dye ice cream lollies! In this recipe we use vodka to help the ice cream from forming ice crystals and freezing too solid. Vodka is a good choice of alcohol because of its neutral flavour, but any alcohol can be used for this effect. However, this can be excluded you’ll just end up with less creamy ice cream.
Last month we shared a number of recipes for pride month – we couldn’t help ourselves and we just had to add them to our favourite summer recipes because you can add any type of fruit you want to the top. How better to rainbow up your dessert than with fresh fruit, to hit all colours in the pride flag here we’re using strawberries, mandarins, peaches, apples, blueberries and grapes! Not only do these look great, they also taste delicious and are the perfect summer pud!
The tarts themselves are topped with our Good Hemp Citrus CBD oil – this is our low strength CBD oil (250mg), a great starting point if you’re looking to try CBD for the first time with a tasty bit of natural citrus flavouring. Taking small but regular doses of CBD can be a great way to help rejuvenate and balance your body on a day-to-day basis.
