T’is the season to cook great food that warms the heart, and we have just the menu for you! This Spanish take on a traditional festive meal contains a hidden ingredient; cannabis. Enjoy the holiday season this year with our seasonal cannabis menu, perfect for amazing your friends and family, making for a night that you’ll never forget. If you’re looking for unique christmas dinner ideas, look no more – all of these recipes contain cannabis!
Make the most out of the season by enjoying a delicious meal full of psychoactive effects. Here at Growbarato.net, we’re constantly reminding consumers to keep in mind that when you cook using cannabis, you’re essentially extracting pure THC and adding it to your meal. This is why we don’t recommend using large dosages; your body processes THC differently when infested, allowing you to absorb much more than when smoked although taking longer for the high to start. Make sure to wait plenty of time after ingesting for the effect to begin.
Our seasonal cannabis menu has three dishes, beginning with a prawn cocktail with cannabis leaves, followed by a meat dish with a delicious chimichurri cannabis sauce. Lastly, for desert, we have a delicious lemon sorbet with cannabis leaves.

Unique Christmas Dinner Ideas – What’s for dessert? Mint and Cannabis Ice-Cream
Ingredients (feeds 6):
- 300ml whole milk
- 300ml whipping cream
- 4 egg yolks
- 80g sugar
- Vanilla extract
- 5g cannabis flowers or 20g leaves
Last but not least, let’s prepare our dessert. This delicious, refreshing dessert has a quirky character to it thanks to the cannabis.
Step 1: You’ll need to start but turning your whole milk into cannabis milk. The first step is to boil some water – turn the heat down once it reaches boiling point. Wait for a few minutes and place your cannabis in the water to clean out any impurities. It’s incredibly important to make sure it doesn’t go over 170º as your THC will begin to evaporate. THC doesn’t attach to water, so you’ll be able to get rid of impurities while leaving the cannabinoids in your weed intact.
Step 2: Next, grab a small pot and pour in your milk, setting it on low heat, and adding in your now-clean cannabis. Cannabis must be mixed with something fatty or lactose in order to release its properties. Mix for a good 10 minutes, not allowing it to boil, and then using a sieve filter out any vegetal materials from your milk and place it in a new pot, alongside the egg, sugar and vanilla. Mix until it’s smooth and lump-free and the sugar is fully dissolved. If you want more of a vanilla flavor you’ll need to wait around 15-20 minutes until it reaches room temperature.
Step 3: Next, add in 300ml of whipping cream. Mix it together until smooth and then place your final mixture in the freezer. If you have an ice-cream maker, simply fill it with your mixture and wait.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker you’ll need to take it out after 45 minutes in order to avoid it getting too hard. Leave it sit at room temperature for a few minutes and mix it after removing any extra ice on the top. This process should be repeated every half hour during 4 hours.
Step 4: Once this process is done, it should be perfectly frozen and have the right ice-cream consistency. Now, all you have to do is plate it and serve it! Decorate it Enjoy your cannabis meal and desert in the company of friends and family.
You’re sure to impress a few friends this year! Just remember to consume responsibly and inform everyone involved that the meal contains cannabis! Also, don’t forget to keep any christmas dinner food made using cannabis away and out of sight of children!
