Ever wondered how it will feel to have weed in your milkshake? We’re talking about a proper infusion of cannabis into the milkshake and not just sprinkling it over. Well, it tastes exquisite if I must say. The taste is unique, the weed provides the needed psychoactive or medical effect and everyone is glad. If you do not know how to go about making a cannabis milkshake, worry not. Read on as we take you on a journey of how to make the best cannabis milkshake.

Cannabis Milkshake

Before we head into the ingredients and recipes that can be used to make a cannabis milkshake there are a couple of things to note. A basic milkshake is quite common to most and we all have different recipes that we use to get our desired milkshakes. The basic thing that is important with any good recipe for cannabis milkshake is that it must be easy and quick to create. 10 minutes is just about enough time needed to make a good milkshake. Different parts of the recipe we will be seeing today can be customized to suit personal taste preferences. The important thing is to get the desired result.

Dosing is also another topic to take very importance when making a cannabis milkshake. Dosing is a major part of making different types of infused foods and drinks. This is because you do not want to underdose the major ingredient such that its effect goes unnoticed. Likewise, you do not want to overdose the product with weed in order to avoid unwanted side effects. Therefore, the issue of dosing must be taken seriously while trying to make a cannabis milkshake. You can play around with the dose till you find the accurate dose depending on how potent you want your cannabis to be.

Cannabis-Infused Milk

Just like cannabis butter is the major product used in making baked edibles, cannabis-infused milk is the major ingredient for cannabis milkshakes. It can easily be made using a quick and easy recipe and serves as an ingredient for different other recipes. It must however be stated that there is a major downside to cannabis-infused milk. It has a lower shelf life compared to other ingredients such as cannabis coconut oil or cannabis butter which are used for making other edibles. Cannabis-infused milk is however the only option when it comes to making cannabis milkshakes. So first we must know how to make cannabis-infused milk.


  • Milk

  • Cannabis buds

  • Oven

  • Stove

  • Double Boiler

  • Cheesecloth


  1. Decarboxylate your cannabis in order to activate the cannabinoids present in the cannabis buds. You can decarboxylate cannabis buds in an oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes.

  2. Add your decarboxylated cannabis into the cheesecloth and tie it up.

  3. Heat your full-fat milk in the double boiler. It is important to ensure that the milk doesn’t begin to boil. This is so you can add your cannabis into the milk for proper infusion.

  4. Allow the milk and cannabis to heat in the boiler for one and a half hours. Ensure that you stir concurrently at every 10-minute interval.

  5. After one and a half hours, pour the cannabis-infused milk into a container. While pouring, ensure that a strainer is used. This will help to prevent the passage of plant matter into the final product.

  6. You can then refrigerate the final product until it is needed.

Once the cannabis milk is ready, making a cannabis milkshake becomes very easy. There are only a few basic ingredients that need to be added and equipment to be used.


  • Cannabis-infused milk

  • Ice cubes (optional)

  • Ice cream or yogurt

  • Blender

  • Frozen fruits (Banana or strawberries)

  • Chocolate syrup


  1. The first step is to take is to crush some ice cubes into your blender. The presence of these ice cubes will help to ensure that the milkshake is icy and frosty. Some people however prefer their milkshake to be smooth. In such cases, you need not add ice cubes.

  2. Add scoops of ice cream to your blender. It is preferable to use high-quality ice cream in order to get the best result. Other available alternatives to ice cream that can be used to experiment are yogurt and sorbet. However, ice cream remains the best product to use.

  3. Add the prepared cannabis milk at this point. Then switch on the blender in order to mix the contents properly. The mixing shouldn’t take more than 5 seconds. If you see that the shake is too thick at this point you can add milk to make it thinner. Likewise, if the shake seems to be too thin, you can add ice cream to make it thicker.

  4. This step is where customization comes to play depending on preference. You can add anything to your blender depending on the taste you are aiming for. Frozen fruits like strawberries and bananas are common at this stage to add a soothing taste to the shake. Other examples are chocolate syrup, candy bars, cookies, peanut butter, crackers, Nutella, and so on.

  5. Blend the mixture for five seconds or until desired texture is achieved.

  6. Serve the milkshake in large drinking glasses with large straws. Whipped cream and cracker crumbs can be added to the milkshake as well.

Just like that your cannabis milkshake is ready for consumption. All you need do at this point is to find the right position to sit back in and enjoy the treat.

As said earlier, dosing depends on how potent you intend to make the milkshake. It is still advisable to work within ranges of cannabis that you are comfortable with and used to.

The more the servings, the more the quantity of the ingredients used. This is why we didn’t specify the number of ingredients to be used. You can easily make cannabis milkshakes and enjoy them with your friends. This is perfect for most social gatherings and casual evenings.
