Vegan & Gluten-Free Peppermint CBD Shortbread Squares
Community member Nicolette Papile’s recipe for Peppermint Choco CBD Shortbread Squares proves that it is possible to indulge in the sweet and festive flavors we love while also making healthy eating choices.
This delectable dessert is sweet, minty and flaky. Oh, and it is also vegan AND gluten-free. Where are my fellow allergy-ridden folks at? Whether you can properly digest dairy or not, surely someone you love is unable to.
She adds CBD to this recipe as an easy way to maintain the CBD regimen that she has been on for the past three years. As Nicolette puts it, “Adding CBD into holiday treats is a great way to make not only you happy, but your tummy too!”
