Julianna Carella is an esteemed baker of edibles, offering her cannabis recipes at her California business, Auntie Dolores.
Her products vary, with many incorporating healthy alternatives in order to provide conscious consumers with more options. Her cannabis-infused smoothie recipe is one example of this. The ingredients she uses are: a frozen banana, coconut milk, yogurt, nut butter, coconut sugar or honey, pecans, cocoa powder and cinnamon. The cannabis in integrated by adding infused coconut milk and Julianna Carella's own medicated pecans.
Infusing the coconut milk is the most difficult part of the cannabis recipe, especially considering that the potency of the herb can change drastically during cooking. With this in mind, Julianna Carella recommends that amateur edible chefs test their infusion at a cannabis lab to be safe.
