Quick Summer Berry Tart w/ CBD “Cream Cheese” Frosting + Graham Cracker Crust (GF/DF)

Healthy Recipes

21 August 2019

If you guys have been following along on the blog for awhile, you know I’m a huge fan of CBD.

While I firmly believe in a holistic approach to health (i.e. there is no one magic cure-all, pill or silver bullet) I’ve been incorporating CBD into my daily routine for the past few months and noticed many benefits.


I can honestly report I’m in a better mood, I sleep more soundly, my digestion has improved, and I feel as though I’m able to cope with anxiety and stressful situations more easily.


And while I do also practice many other habits that I believe contribute to these positive side effects, (such as eating and cooking real, nutrient dense foods, practicing a morning and nightly routine, daily exercise/movement, etc.) incorporating CBD into delicious recipes has become a really enjoyable ritual for me. It literally takes FEEL-GOOD-FOOD to a whole new level.

But before you jump on the CBD wagon, just as with any other purchase, I strongly encourage you to do your homework to ensure you’re getting a high quality product that actually works.


Check out this post on everything you need to know in order to optimize your experience with CBD. You can also check out my favorite CBD Product (along with a review) here. 


And then, onto the best part. Using your CBD hemp oil to make this insanely easy and delicious summer berry tart with “cream cheese” frosting and graham cracker crust.

It takes 15 minutes to make (plus a couple hours of chilling), is gluten and dairy-free and loaded with stress/anxiety/depression-reducing + mood-boosting ingredients (including CBD, obvi).

Make it now to get the most of this season’s produce and maximize your summer chill.
