How to Make Strawberry Brownies
If you are looking for a new twist on a classic dessert, infused strawberry brownies are the perfect solution. They have the chewy consistency of a typical chocolate brownie (note: these do not contain chocolate!), but this strawberry version is refreshing and unique. The best part is you don’t have to spend a lot of time preparing the ingredients.
It’s the perfect no-fuss dessert.
Beneficial Botanical Brownie Ingredients
Strawberries contain manganese, folate, Vitamin C, antioxidants, and potassium. They are also high in fiber. Scientists believe that regularly including strawberries in our diet can increase cardiovascular health and prevent strokes.
Other ingredients in this recipe, like coconut oil and vanilla extract, promote heart health and reduce high blood sugar levels. For a dessert recipe, this one does offer notable amounts of vitamins and minerals.
In addition, the botanicals infused into the coconut oil also provide many health benefits. Depending on your choice of flower strain, the infused oil can contain terpenes with effective anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and analgesic properties.
Linalool is a terpene commonly found in both strawberries and raw medicinal flower, and its compounds act as powerful antimicrobial and antifungal agents. Strawberries also contain terpinolene, which eases anxiety and enhances mood. The terpenoid nerolidol commonly found in strawberries causes a sedating effect.
Overall, this dessert might just be perfect for a quiet, relaxing evening.
Decarbing Your Flower
Decarboxylating the raw flower is an important step because it activates the special compounds in medicinal flower and prepares them for absorption into the oil during the infusion stage.
Note: LĒVO home infusion machines automate the process of drying, activating, and infusing your herb to its ‘carrier oil’ - including butter and honey. Take a look at our time and temperature calculator- and you’ll have a better idea of the capabilities of the LĒVO II and LĒVO C.
Note: If you don’t have LEVO yet (and why not?) but still want to make this special brownie recipe, you can find both the oven decarbing and stovetop infusing instructions here.
