It’s 4/20 all month and we’re celebrating with an Instagram LIVE Takeover series called Flower Hour.
To kick off 4/20 weekend, Mennlay Golokeh Aggrey, set flower enthusiasts up for success with her take on the high holiday classic–vegan panditas gummy bears.
As a 15-year flower-guru, author of The Art of Weed Butter, host of the podcast Broccoli Talk, and Co-Founder of her own CBD line, Xula CBD–Mennlay proves there’s still time to make all your favorite things #LEVOmade. She tells us more about her panditas gummy bears below.
Panditas aka gomitas aka gummy candies are my biggest addiction. It’s a problem. I usually inhale an entire bag of gummies before the opening credits finish to whatever movie I’m watching. Classic Panditas here in Mexico are like the Haribo gummy bears that come in the colors aka flavors of red, yellow, orange, and green.
In this recipe for a more playful and “healthy” version, I made homemade juices and swapped gelatin for agar powder (natural gelatin made from red algae). The texture of agar is softer than gelatin but works just as well. Should you choose to use gelatin, go for it. I don’t judge. I’m not vegan.
