Making cannabis-infused ice cream may sound intimidating, but it shouldn’t. You don’t need specialized or expensive equipment to fix yourself a batch of weed ice cream.

- 14 oz (1 can) of sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (you may choose a different flavor)
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 cups whipped canna-cream
- Preferred cannabis flowers in amounts you can tolerate
Part one: Preparing your canna-cream
- Decarboxylate your cannabis flower by baking it in an oven at 220 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 to 45 minutes.
- Combine the decarboxylated flowers with the whipped canna-cream and put them in a saucepan. Apply heat and bring the combination to a boil.
- Lower your heat and allow to boil gently for about 30 to 45 minutes. If you are preparing more than 2 cups of heavy cream, you may need to apply gentle heat for about 2 hours.
- Keep stirring it to prevent the mixture from burning at the bottom of the sauce.
- Strain the mixture and allow it to cool down for a minimum of 8 hours in the refrigerator.
As you can see, this will take a significant amount of time. We recommend conducting the process a day before you make your cannabis-infused ice cream.
You are now done with the most challenging part of making cannabis-infused ice cream.
Part two: Making the cannabis-infused ice cream
- Put your sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl. Salt is added to lower the freezing point of ice.

- Next, fold a cup of the whipped canna-cream mixture into the sweetened condensed milk mixture, then use a rubber or silicone spatula to combine them. Keep folding until they are well-blended and combined. Your cannabis-infused ice cream is ready!
