black friday smoothie
We love eating from all colours of the rainbow. The hardest to incorporate is definitely the colour black! There are very few foods that are that deep midnight colour. I can think of black garlic, black rice, eggplant skin, black turtle beans… And then – there’s charcoal! What was traditionally only thought of as fuel for a winter fire has made its way into our diet due to its natural healing properties for your body.
When ingested, activated charcoal works to trap toxins & chemicals so they can be flushed from your system. Great known uses of activated charcoal include as a natural teeth whitener, to aid and improve digestion and bloating, emergency toxin removal, anti-aging and to naturally reduce cholesterol.
Incorporate charcoal into your diet with our recipe for our BLACK FRIDAY SMOOTHIE!

◦ 1 cup of chopped kale
◦ ½ a cucumber
