When life hands you lemons, just add some activated charcoal and make lemonade! Charcoal lemonade is the PERFECT way to stay hydrated, detox, and get a taste of Summer all in one sip. Activated charcoal, fresh lemons, and maple syrup make this charcoal lemonade deliciously good.
Charcoal lemonade might look weird (or super cool) depending on how you look at it, but it’s packed with some crazy detox powers.
Lemons and maple syrup are a metabolism boosting combo and when charcoal is added to the mix, it becomes a really healthy (and delicious) beverage! I swear this stuff tastes JUST LIKE regular lemonade.
What is activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal is NOT the charcoal you use for grills. It’s charcoal that has been heated at high temperates to make it more digestible. It’s gaining popularity for natural skincare, but it can have the same detoxing benefits for your body as your skin!
It can come in a capsule or powdered form. I like the powdered form, but make sure to measure it and not just “eyeball”!
