Flower-Infused Artichoke Dip

Creamy. Warm. Infused. Awesome.

All of these are words which can be used to describe this flower-infused Artichoke Dip. The paleo dip pairs well with warm bread, pita, or chips.

Best of all: it's guilt-free.

Only healthy ingredients, such as cashews, almond milk, garlic, nutrition yeast, herbal oil, and artichoke hearts are called for. You know what this means — you may have a hard time not eating the entire pan before showing up to the BBQ.

Lemongrass-y Skewers

Elevate your BBQ scene with some scrumptious Lemongrass Chicken Skewers.

This super-simple recipe calls for lemongrass, chicken breast, lemons, mini peppers, greek yogurt, and an assortment of spices. Just leave yourself an hour ahead of time to soak your skewers so they don't scorch on the grill. Scorching a bowl isn't cool, and neither is scorching your skewers.


Not-So-Spicy Green Fire Nachos

Just imagine… After passing a rollie around with new and old friends, a tray of 420-friendly nachos is served.

In an elevated state, the spice of the salsa, the creaminess of the cheese, and the crunch of the chips would produce a euphoric state. And, after the waxy components kick in, you’d be on another level.

420-friendly nachos are a delight everyone should experience.


"Green" Iced Tea

"Wow” guests with Infused Iced Tea!

This refreshing drink is incredibly easy to make: you just need water, your choice of tea, and infused butter or oil.

Shake off the heat and enjoy your summer with an ice cold glass of Infused Iced Tea.


Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are the mark of a good picnic. When this dish is missing, it’s a questionable party at best. If you agree, you’re sure to love this recipe for infused Deviled Eggs.

The tasty dish can be made with herbal-infused olive or coconut oil. Simple ingredients, such as mayo, red onion, mustard, and capers are called for.

Set aside just 30 minutes to whip up this crowd-pleaser.


420-Friendly BBQ Sauce

Imagine sitting down to a picnic table, a pile of meat in front of you. After serving up your portion, you slather the heaping mound in infused BBQ sauce. Chicken wings, racks of ribs, you name it -- this BBQ sauce will take it to a new level.

Backyard BBQs have never been quite like this.


Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Infusions

Is there ever an occasion when bacon-wrapped shrimp shouldn’t make an appearance?
We don’t think so, either.

This dynamic appetizer calls for bacon, shrimp, infused olive oil, goat cheese, and lemon.

It’s simple, yet tastes divine. We think you’ll agree.


Easy Herbal Crock-Pot Baked Beans

No picnic is complete without baked beans.

This sweet and savory side is rich in protein, reasonably priced, and delicious! After a pull from the vape, you’ll have the best time exploring the flavors in this baked beans recipe.


420-Friendly Pistachio-Vanilla Ice Cream

Can ice cream be healthy and infused? You bet!

The dairy-free and vegan “ice cream” is easy-to-make, tastes divine, and is healthier than conventional versions. And, of course, it is 420-friendly.

After inhaling a scoop or two of this treat, attendees will be yelling: “Best BBQ ever!”


Ooey Goey Pot Brownies

After indulging in BBQ ribs, deviled eggs, potato salad, and more, you’ll still have room for dessert — believe us. That’s why we recommend whipping up a batch of these ooey gooey pot brownies.

The gluten-free and vegan treat is made with healthy ingredients, such as almond butter, raw honey, almond flour, coconut oil, and raw cacao powder. Though it is healthier, it definitely doesn’t taste like it.


Thai Iced Tea

For those who are less inclined to sip on Infused Iced Tea --Thai Iced Tea might be more their flavor.

The indulgent beverage is made with chai tea, cane sugar, condensed milk, and herbal butter.

After tucking into a plate of BBQ fare, think about how refreshing it would be to kick back in a lawn chair, this Thai Iced Tea in hand, a state of bliss: your troubles will melt away.


Pumpkin-Walnut Spice Butter Cups

Every time you gather with friends and family members, you have an opportunity to showcase your talent in the kitchen. You won't disappoint by with a batch of these walnut pumpkin-spice butter cups.

This treat is raw and vegan, meaning it doesn’t need to be cooked. In fact, only a handful of simple, plant-based ingredients are called for.

In a high-speed blender, whip up pumpkin puree, infused coconut oil, maple syrup, and spices. The filling will then be poured onto a “crust” made of walnuts, coconut oil, cane sugar, and spices. After the treat freezes for several hours, it can be served.


Herb-Infused Turkey Burgers

If you’re the adventurous type, consider making cannabis-infused turkey burgers. The hearty entree will delight and excite, simply because it is made with healthy ingredients and is guaranteed to elevate.

When served between two buns and piled high with lettuce, tomato, and ketchup, this herbal entree is hard to turn down.


Quick Infused Ketchup

Some people like to indulge in specially-crafted munchies. Others like to infuse food by smothering herbal ketchup on top. It all comes down to preference.

This recipe calls for an infused tincture, tomato paste, ketchup, and spices. By following a few simple steps, you’ll have your own batch of herbal ketchup in no time — just don’t forget to label it!


Herb-Infused Potato Salad

Ahh, potato salad. Like Deviled Eggs, this dish is a favorite at BBQs. Fortunately for us all, there’s a recipe to make an infused version.

The recipe is quite ordinary, except that it calls for herbal oil. With potent ingredients such as eggs, mustard, and garlic, no one will be able to taste its herbal properties.


Now you know — there’s more to hosting a rad BBQ than donning a hemp apron and puffing on a sherlock pipe. Equipped with these recipes, you are prepared to host the ultimate cookout. Enjoy!
