Move over, unicorn hot chocolate and turmeric lattes — there’s a new drink in town, and it will make your inner goth squeal. Activated charcoal lattes are the next big thing, and they are stunning. This activated charcoal latte recipe is creamy, detoxifying, healthy, and so delicious. Steamed almond milk mixed activated charcoal powder, sweetener, and a splash of vanilla is all it takes to make this frothy beverage.
Charcoal Latte Benefits:
Activated charcoal is the magical ingredient pulling off the black hue and it’s not just for looks. Activated charcoal can have major benefits in your beauty routine, but it’s also super detoxing if you consume it.
Not only can it cleanse your digestive system, but it’s also great for reducing bloating and increasing energy.
Tip: It’s important to stick to the recommended dosage… I’m no doctor but you don’t want to go overboard with this stuff.
The first time I consumed activated charcoal was at a Pressed Juicery as a lemonade. I was skeptical of trying it because the drink was pitch black. They offered me a sample and I seriously could not believe it tasted just like lemonade. Once I learned about the benefits of charcoal, I believe it can be apart of a healthy diet.
Just like charcoal can be great for detoxing your skin, it can have the same benefits to your digestive system! How cool is that??
- Add all ingredients to a small saucepan
- Using a whisk, stir until milk begins to froth
Alternatively, you can use a milk frother, but the whisking method works great too!
This activated charcoal recipe tastes like a warm steamed milk beverage that is lightly sweetened. Obviously, you can adjust the amount of sweetness to your liking, but the results will yield in a delicious vegan latte.
Activated Charcoal Uses:
- Activated charcoal can be used as a natural teeth whitener
- Make a detoxing face mask
- Can be used for treatment for different types of poison consumption (in both humans and dogs!)
