potluck: Potli Pride by Rachel Burkons

The Potli portfolio is as versatile as they come: With pantry staples like CBD Olive Oil, CBD Apple Cider Vinegar, CBD Honey, CBD Chili Oil and CBD Sriracha, the beauty of this line is their ability to turn almost anything into an infused food. To celebrate Pride this month, I wanted to create a few recipes that were not only were fun and delicious and celebratory of seasonal fruit (um, can it be stone fruit season forever?), but also showcase some of the many ways you can incorporate cannabis into dishes. It’s time to think outside the pot brownie, y’all! Not that there’s anything wrong with that – which is why you’ll also find a recipe for a sprinkle-filled rice crispy treat, cut into shapes of hearts. 

CBD Honey Whipped Ricotta Stoned Fruit Parfait

To be honest, this is kind of my dream dessert. I don’t have a huge sweet tooth and prefer cheeses over chocolates, so combining Ricotta cheese and the Potli CBD honey in a simple fruit parfait was a lightly-sweet home run for me. I would literally eat this every day, especially with the perfect bounty of stone fruit in early summer. This can be translated into a year-round dish by swapping out seasonal fruits throughout the year, but we’re still in the prime of cherry season here, so my family has been going through pounds of cherries a week. The window to celebrate their magical color and flavor is fleeting, and I will go hard while I still can. I have no regrets. And don’t even get me started on these pluots!

1/4 cup part-skim ricotta*
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Potli CBD Honey
Cherries, halved
Pluot

*I used part-skim ricotta to make this a slightly healthier option, but use whole milk ricotta for maximum smoothness.

Combine cheese, lemon juice, Potli CBD honey in a food processor until smooth. Serve in a glass; top with seasonal fruit.
