Step 1: Recipe
Black lemonade is a quick and simple recipe requiring just a few ingredients. You probably have most of them in your kitchen already…except the charcoal.
- juice of one lemon
- 1-2 capsules activated charcoal
- stevia or maple syrup
Cut lemon in half and squeeze it with a juicer releasing the juice. Make sure to pick out any seeds that may sneak in. Add lemon juice to a 16 ounce glass.
Break open 1-2 activated charcoal capsules (check dosage on your bottle or container), add to the lemon juice, and stir to combine.
Fill glass to the top with ice and add water. Stir in sweetener to taste. I used 5 drops of stevia. (I like it tart!)
Garnish with a slice of lemon. Drink and enjoy!
**It is important to drink enough water when taking activated charcoal. Some of you may ask ‘Why not just take the capsule instead of mixing it in a drink?’. I do this simply so I know that I am consuming enough water to circulate the charcoal well enough in my system. Plus, since activated charcoal has no flavor, the lemonade is delicious!! 🙂
