How to make marijuana ice cream


Summer is approaching and nothing is more appealing at certain times than an ice cream of your favorite flavor to refresh you and have a little moment of pleasure. How about you make it of marijuana? In the following article we tell you how to do this and the aspects you need to take into account, such as decarboxylation, to maintain the effects of cannabis.

Do you know what I like most about strolling through the streets these days when summer is already beginning to feel? See the new flavors of artisan ice-cream parlours! And yesterday there was one of an intense green color that caught my attention. “Will it be marijuana ice cream?”I thought.” And no, it wasn’t, it was matcha green tea. But this gave me an idea.?

Of course! So much time looking for and preparing recipes with marijuana like coffee, weed brownie, truffles, milk, among others sweet flavors or pizza and cannabis oil in salads among some of the salty flavors and I had completely overlooked that I could do it in ice cream!

And you, have you thought about it? Would you like some? Well, if so, stay! Today I’m going to tell you how to make marijuana ice cream for which I invite you to take paper and pen and take note of the ingredients and the steps to follow, but especially, of some clues for marijuana ice cream to retain the flavor of cannabis, but also its effects. We’re starting!!?




👌 Ingredients for making cannabis ice cream



The truth is that I have found different variants of recipes to make this ice cream, so I have stayed with the one that I thought was the simplest, but also the one that I liked best in terms of flavour (yes, I have tried several and, finally, I will stick with the one I am going to give you next)


  • 2 to 2.5 grams of marijuana, depending on the person who is going to use it (although you know it is always better to throw it down). My recommendation is that it’s not a type of marijuana that makes you fall asleep, because you probably want to keep enjoying your day. Keep this in mind when choosing a variety.
  • 500 ml of cream (for cooking, because it is thicker and the fat is necessary to preserve all the properties of cannabis).
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil (although there will always be more fat in the butter).
  • 75 grams of sugar (or if you prefer another sweetener to taste that is healthier, no problem either: stevia, agave, maple, coconut or birch syrup, for example).
  • 2 ripe bananas (so that there are no problems when preparing them and because they will give more flavor to your ice cream.
  • A pinch of salt (you know all desserts have it)
  • Rum (2 tablespoons) with honey ( 5 tablespoons; if the honey is pure, better than better)

These would be the basic ingredients, but from here you can add others that you like to have in the ice cream. Some people put cookies, coconuts, nuts or mint on it, among other flavors. In this case it looks great because they are products that match great with rum and honey, without leaving aside the flavor, aroma and characteristics of the marijuana you choose to make your cannabis ice cream.


⚠️ Things to consider before starting the recipe


If you’ve already taken note of all the ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe, you just need to get down to work. But first I’d like to talk to you about decarboxylation. “Descarbox what,”?, a friend of mine told me the other day. Did the word surprise you too? Actually, I’m sure you’ve done it if you’ve prepared any marijuana recipes.

When you smoke or vape the cannabis  a process of descaboxilación is produced, in which the THCa of the cannabis becomes THCa and of there that you can enjoy the high or relax that you offer each variety of cannabis. But when it comes to cooking it, it’s different

To begin with, and if you’ve ever read any of our recipes, you know that they all have to contain some oil or a fat product, such as cream in this case, so that it catches the properties of marijuana.

In the case of ice cream, if you want to achieve the same effect, it is always advisable to do this prior process. To do this, my recommendation is to keep the marijuana buds in the oven (which you will have preheated for 10 minutes beforehand). That should do it..


We recommend decarboxylate the cannabis before cooking, because although during the process of elaboration of the recipe, the marijuana can be decarboxylated, if we do it before we make sure that the decarboxylation is done correctly.

✅ Making marijuana ice cream step by step


And now I do. You can start making your marijuana ice cream by following the steps below:


Step 1: In a casserole dish with enough depth, heat the cream over a medium heat (so it doesn’t burn) and stir slowly with a wooden spoon. Then add the butter, salt and sugar, stirring constantly.


Heat the cream over medium heat and add other ingredients.

Step 2: Once you see that these ingredients have been melted and mixed correctly, add to the dough the cannabis that you have broken up with the help of a grinder or, if you prefer, you can do it manually, although it will take longer.

Step 3: In a clean bowl or plate, cut the banana into slices and then crush it with a fork. When ready, add to the above mixture and add the rum and honey. Whisk everything together with a blender until creamy.

Step 4: turn off the heat and pour the mixture into a container that you can then put in the freezer, once the dough has cooled. My advice is to make it a comfortable container, like an ice cream container that is already prepared, so that you can serve yourself comfortably whenever you want. And let him spend at least four hours in the freezer.

✨ Enjoy your homemade cannabis ice cream


You can finally enjoy your marijuana ice cream! ? And you’ve already seen that it’s not complicated at all. Simply collect the ingredients I have given you in the first section, mix them all in a casserole dish over a low heat, beat and put them in the freezer for a few hours.

And don’t forget to take into account what we always say when we use cannabis by mouth: the effect takes much longer to arrive (it can take between one and two hours), but when it arrives it is more powerful. So don’t try to take more so that it goes up sooner: enjoy the taste and let yourself go, because the effect of the cannabis ice cream is sure to arrive.

I can only hope you enjoy the ice cream, and I invite you to comment on this article and share it in your networks if you like it.? This way more people will be able to enjoy this summer (and, of course, all year round) a delicious marijuana ice cream. Enjoy your meal!

    Hello Noelia

    I am trying to reach you with some questions on the making of ice cream. You said you have tried several recipes and I have some questions. I make a lot of ice cream (as a hobby) and I know the part of the ice cream making process very well. It’s the marijuana side I need help with.

    I have some marijuana in liquid form. I am wondering if you have tried using it for making ice cream? I am wondering your thoughts about using the liquid as I won’t be roasting to decarboxylate before I proceed with making the ice cream?

    As for the recipes you mentioned you tried but did not discuss here. Are there some types of ingredients you would recommend I skip?

    Additionally, I have a friend who uses marijuana for medicinal reasons. She is more into the CBD side. She would like me to make her some ice cream. The liquid I have is 5.3 mg/ml THC & 4.95 CBD. Part of me thinks using the liquid will be simpler in the process but certainly not inexpensive! I’m wondering your thoughts before I proceed in the hopes that you may save me some steps?

    Also, I am happy to share my results with you as time goes along if you are interested.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

      Hi Marc, you can use the liquid marijuana to make the ice cream, it’s a good alternative. If your friend wants to use the ice cream as medicine, the ratio of THC to CBD of 1:1 is correct.
      It will be a pleasure to read how the ice cream turned out, thanks for your time.

      I’ve come up with one of the salted caramel best recipes that doesn’t really have the grassy taste that this one will give you.
      You will need an ice cream maker though

      Ingredients you will need for the caramel:
      1/4 cup (60 ml) water
      1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
      2/3 cup (160 ml) heavy whipping cream
      3 tablespoons (45 grams) unsalted butter , cut into tablespoon-sized pieces
      40ml cannabis coconut oil
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      2 table spoons dessicated coconut
      1 teaspoon salt

      Ice cream base

      462gm cream
      300gm full fat milk
      2 egg yolks
      100gm sugar
      15ml vanilla essense

      For the caramel

      In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat the water and sugar over medium heat. Make sure to use a saucepan that’s a little bigger than what you think you will need. Stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture starts to bubble just a little.
      Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil, stop stirring completely. Let the mixture continue boiling until it turns an amber color, this could take anywhere from 4-12 minutes.
      Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the heavy cream. The mixture will bubble up quite a bit, so make sure to do this very carefully. Then, mix in the butter, cannabis coconut oil , vanilla, dessicated coconut and salt one at a time.
      Pour the caramel sauce into a dish and allow to cool completely, then cover tightly and store in the refrigerator. The caramel sauce will thicken up some once it’s cooled and refrigerated.

      For the base

      Mix caramel, milk and cream and heat on low until completely dissolved to make base mixture

      In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks,sugar and vanilla essense until stuff and voluminous

      Add hot base mixture slowly drop at a time into the eggs and stir until dissolved. Put this back on low heat until simmering but don’t allow to boil for 6-10 minutes until the mixture is a bit thick. Allow to cool and chill in the refrigerator for an hour then transfer to an ice cream maker for 30-45 minutes. Empty ice cream maker bowl contents into a container and freeze for the next 3-4 hours till hard.

      This is really one of the tastiest recipes I’ve come across to date

    Hi my name is Tony, pleased to meet you and thank you for the recipe for making the ice cream. I wanted to know if what about if you use the CBD oil in the recipes would that be the same can we get the same effects.

    • Avatar for Alan Martinez

      Hello Antonio, you can use CBD oil without any problem, just keep in mind that the effect will not be psychotropic.
