Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo
Have you heard about the new activated charcoal trend? Apparently there is one. And if not – I am setting it right now with my Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo recipe! 😎
How it all started though. Someone shared with me their nice-looking dishes on Instagram and Pinterest. I became curious about the ingredients because the photos looked… super dark. When I found out that it was the activated charcoal, I did some research and found out a few things about it that motivated me to try something of my own. After all, it promised to be fun, healthy and very cost-efficient.
I started with what Vladi and I really love for breakfast – Banana Smoothie. I added a bit of the activated charcoal to it and a bit of Oreo, and it became this impressive dark Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo!
This was a complete mystery for me. So I tested it on Vladi. And after he survived the experiment, I tried it, too 😆 Both of us quite enjoyed the result because the activated charcoal made the smoothie a bit astringent. We did have black teeth and a good laugh afterwards.
Conclusion: this Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo recipe is healthy, trendy and fun. You can get the darkest colour in the world to your dishes and it’s completely safe. Do it!
Do not use the activated charcoal in any of your meals if you have consumed alcohol or are planning to in the near future!
Let’s look at some of the reason why the activated charcoal is such a healthy detox.
Why activated charcoal?
The activated charcoal traps toxins and chemicals in millions of its tiny little sponge-like pores. They suck up everything in sight as soon as the charcoal hits the digestive tract. In fact, the activated charcoal is so absorbent that it is a one-time solution for those in pain due to toxin exposure or drug overdose. Typically, however, it is not used when petroleum, alcohol, lye, acids or other corrosive poisons are ingested.
This Banana Charcoal Recipe with Oreo bits was my first experiment with the activated charcoal. And I absolutely loved it! I made a couple of cups of healthy smoothie that helps reduce toxins and made it a dark black colour. Win-win! And it was super cheap. So, win-win-win!
