I’ve tried charcoal lemonade from a bunch of different brands. If you like lemonade, you’ll like it with some charcoal in it. It has a super mild taste and most of the time I don’t even register that there’s charcoal in there. 

So why have charcoal in it at all? Glad you asked…

Charcoal has been associated with a bunch of different health benefits. It can relieve gas and bloating. It’s also great for detoxing your body from foreign agents. Things like pesticides, mercury, fertilizer, and bleach, bind to activated charcoal which helps them be eliminated quicker from your body. Along with being a great cleanse for your digestive tract. It can reduce cholesterol and can be great for treating acne and body oder. 

Listen, I just listed a bunch of benefits I found on the internet. Are they 100% proven? Probably not. I think it’s important to have a healthy amount of skepticism whenever you’re introducing a new ingredient into your diet. Personally, I think it’s fun to drink activated charcoal, I think it’s fun to make body scrubs and face masks from it. And, if it has any additional health benefits, great.

But, I definitely don’t use charcoal exclusively in the treatment of any health issue, nor do I put too much faith in these health benefits I found on the internet. 

So let’s make some Sugar Free Detox Charcoal Lemonade!

In a large pitcher, combine the water, lemon juice, agave nectar (honey or maple syrup works), and charcoal. Stir until combined. Alternatively you can use a blender to mix everything up. 

Store in the fridge until you’re ready to drink!
