Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo Recipe Connecting the Opposites

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 my Instagram and Pinterest. I became curious about the ingredients because the photos looked very dark. When I found out that it was the activated charcoal, I did some research and found out a few things about it that I want to share with you now. It really motivated me to try something of my own. After all, it promised to be a fun way to paint some of my favourite dishes into black.

I startedt 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 nothing less than an impressively dark Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo!


I was not sure what to expect from the overall taste of it though. Well I generally knew that if you had food poisoning or problems with your stomach you could take a few pills of the activated charcoal and it should have helped. But today, apparently, this pharmacy ingredient is turning into a whole new food trend. 

And because there is no such technology that can transmit food tastes through the Internet yet (or is there?), I decided to test the charcoal flavor in food on my dearest hubby. I can now say that Vladi volunteered. And after he survived the experiment, I tried it, too 😆 Both of us quite enjoyed the result because the activated charcoal added some interesting flavor to the smoothie – not to say about the 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 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.

Boring Paragraph Alert

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!

Try this Banana Charcoal Smoothie with Oreo and let me know what you think in the Comments section below. So stumped to hear about your results 😋

Bon appétit!

Crush the charcoal into powder. Tip: You can do it in a coffee mill or a pounder.


Ripe and cut bananas into pieces. Pour water into blender, add bananas, honey and activated charcoal. Blend all ingredients to get a nice smooth texture.


Pour your smoothie into a glace. Decorate with poppy seeds and Oreo. Voila!
