Black lemonade is a refreshing drink that gets its black color from activated charcoal.
Activated charcoal has many health benefits, including preventing hunger, whitening teeth, anti-aging, and flushing toxins from the body. It works by binding to toxins that are excreted from the body. (The link above has a more scientific explanation of how it works.)
*I’m not a doctor, so do your homework before taking activated charcoal! It may interfere with some medications.
Step 1: Best Black Lemonade Recipe
Black Lemonade is a quick and easy recipe that only requires a few ingredients. Except charcoal, you probably already have them in your kitchen.
juice of one lemon
1-2 capsules of activated charcoal
stevia or maple syrup
Cut the lemon in half and squeeze it through a juicer to extract the juice. Break open 1-2 capsules of activated charcoal, add to lemon juice and stir to combine.
Fill the top of the glass with ice and add water. Stir in the spices to taste. I used 5 drops of stevia. (I love cookies!)
