This Charcoal Black Lemonade recipe can help rid your body of toxins and reduce bloating all white tasting just like a tall glass of freshly squeezed lemonade.
UPDATE! Due to the overwhelming popularity of this post, my husband and I created and sell Detox Charcoal Lemonade powder. All you have to do is add water!
Just when my roommates thought things couldn’t get any weirder, I started drinking this…
Charcoal Black Lemonade.
You should have seen the look of horror as I proudly totted around a jug of what looked suspiciously close to pond water. In hindsight, I suppose I should have warned them. But then again, they need me to make rent each month. So it doesn’t look like my Charcoal Black lemonade and I will be going anywhere ;)
In all seriousness, this Charcoal Black Lemonade drink might not look appealing, but it tastes pretty much exactly like regular lemonade. The charcoal is tasteless and seriously good for you. Charcoal is the new thing in the health food world, here is exhibit A, exhibit B, and finally, exhibit C.
Charcoal has the ability to rid the body of unwanted substances, can decrease gas and bloat, and may even improve heart health. And take it from someone who has had her share of stomach aches, charcoal works.
If you are having trouble locating this miracle black powder, I buy mine from Amazon.
So raise your murky black glass and cheers to health disguised as delicious lemonade.Print
Despite its murky appearance, this detox drink tastes just like lemonade! I buy my charcoal in capsule form from a vitamin store or on Amazon. When I am ready to make this drink, I just cup open the capsule and I am ready to go!
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice ((more or less to taste))
- Stevia to taste ((I used about 15 drops))
- 1/4 teaspoon (about 1 capsule) activated charcoal
- Whisk together all of the ingredients until desired taste is achieved. Serve over ice.
