Activated charcoal is THE thing at the moment.
And as always with trends, there is a long tradition behind it. So here as well.
Activated charcoal has been used in the Orient for 2500 years. The first time, it was quoted by an Egyptian medical writer as a cure for digestive problems. But even in order to escape poisoning, one has already used it on the King’s court.
- 1 cup of oat, coconut or almond milk
- 1 tsp activated charcoal (or the contents of 2 capsules)
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 espresso
Mix milk, activated charcoal and syrup, foam and place in a glass. Make espresso and pour in, like with a latte macchiato. If you want to have a chocolate note, add 1 tsp of cocoa to the milk mixture.
