Everyone will be ordering charcoal lattes soon

Charcoal lattes are taking the internet by storm.

The sharing of stunning grey latte images are beginning to attract attention across many social media outlets.

The charcoal is different from the charcoal found on your burnt toast. Activated charcoal (used in this latte) is known for its ability to relieve certain gastrointestinal issues and hangovers.

The charcoal attracts and traps different toxins, gases and chemicals in the body through a process called absorption. The charcoal carries these toxins through the body and then excretes them with minimal damage. In other words just like a juice detox but minus the three-day cleanse.

If you want to try this drink, follow the recipe outlined below.


  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon food-grade activated charcoal
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar


  1. Place a small pot on medium heat and add all the ingredients.
  2. Whisk vigorously until milk begins to froth.
  3. Add to a mug and enjoy warm.

It is important to note that while activated charcoal has many health benefits, it is also possible for the ingredient to weaken certain medications. If you are taking medications or have a preexisting health condition please consult your doctor before taking part in this upcoming trend.
