In the time we live in, there’s a new health trend every few months. People nowadays love to try new drinks and food for the sake of becoming “healthier.” One of the more recent popular trends is adding activated charcoal into consumable foods. The activated charcoal is used to trap toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and bacteria in the body, allowing them to be flushed out. This way the body doesn’t reabsorb them. Activated charcoal has multiple benefits and is usually taken orally in capsule form. Lately people have tried to be more innovative by adding this ingredient into recipes from charcoal pizza to charcoal bread to charcoal cake. But the most intriguing charcoal item to hit the market lately is the the activated charcoal latte — also know as the goth latte.We see it in food, drinks (remember that Starbucks unicorn frappuccino), and hair. Anyone else over it?
Instead of color, we’ve got something monochromatic — a solution to end all the multicolored madness: goth lattes.
A caffeinated beverage that looks like how you feel?
Is the apocalypse coming? Will our futures be surrounded with darkness?
Not to mention all the dead unicorn lattes. These beverages just might be as dark as a cold person’s dead heart.
The drinks are actually made out of activated charcoal. It’s an ingredient that actually has a lot of healthy benefits.
It can aid in getting rid of heavy metals, bacteria, and other toxins in the body. Activated charcoal is also helpful for digestion.
Although it doesn’t absorb alcohol, it can get rid of toxins in the body that contribute to poisoning.
The beverage is good for you so long as you consume it in the correct quantity.
Well, the recipe is actually different in each cafe that creates it.
Studio 3, a yoga studio and nourish bar, in Australia uses coconut syrup and coconut milk in theirs.
But don’t fret, it won’t be long until you’ll start seeing the drinks at a local coffee shop’s menu.
But until then, if you can’t wait, you can try making them yourself at home.
You can try adding vanilla almond milk and vanilla extract into your recipe or look up online recipes for more ideas.
But it’s ok, we know the truth. You just want it for that Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/Snapchat photo but we’re not judging. We’d do the same.
