My favorite uses of doTerra essential oils in edibles are:
Citrus oils (Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Slim & Sassy (not specifically citrus), Wild Orange) in my sparkling water
Cardamom and cinnamon in coffee-- neutralizes acidity & adds wonderful flavor!
Ginger (or others-- get creative!) in my smoothies
Lavender in homemade chocolates
Lemon in my kale chips and hummus
Lime for my pico de gallo and guacamole
OnGuard infused into my sliced apples (also Wild Orange)
Oregano anytime I don't have the dried herb-- **only use a toothpick amount!!!! Just one drop creates an overdose of oregano flavor--not good.**
Peppermint in my brownies..... peppermint black bean brownies! Also quickly rubbed on roof of mouth as a breath mint.
Black Bean Peppermint Brownies 15oz can black beans (drained & rinsed) 2 large eggs (or flax-eggs) 1/4 cup cocoa powder 2/3 cup honey 1/3 cup coconut oil 1/2 tsp baking powder pinch of salt 4 drops peppermint EO 3/4 cup chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350°. Blend all ingredients (except choc chips) until smooth. Pour batter into greased 8x8in pan and stir in 1/2 cup choc chips. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 choc chips on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Let cool (and store) in fridge, then cut into pieces.
**You might want to try using parchment paper to line the pan before greasing it with coconut oil to avoid sticking/crumbling brownies when cutting them out of the pan.
Coconut Lime Bites/Bars 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1/4 cup maple syrup 1 Tbsp coconut oil 1/8 tsp salt 4 drops lime EO Blend together with mixer, pour into tray, freeze 15 minutes (or longer in fridge). You can adjust the thickness of these bites as desired. Cut up & enjoy
Wild Orange Yogurt Fruit Dip 1 cup Greek yogurt** 1 Tbsp raw honey 2-3 drops Wild Orange EO
Mix ingredients together. Adjust honey and EO as desired. Serve with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
**I served an adjusted vegan version with Kite Hill's almond milk yogurt, raw blue agave and Wild Orange EO. I personally like the original better but it's not vegan.
