Enjoy a refreshing lemonade that also aids your body's detox system!

Activated Charcoal Ice Cubes


4 tablespoons activated charcoal powder (you can break capsules or buy it in powder form)

2 cups water

Collagen Lemonade


5 tablespoons Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides

¾ cup raw honey (I like Really Raw honey, but Thrive Market’s version is more liquid, perfect for this drink) or liquid Stevia drops to taste

1 cup hot water

6 cups cold water

2 cups fresh lemon juice

2 to 3 lemons, sliced


Activated charcoal ice cubes

Break charcoal capsules by cutting with scissors (or scoop from the bag) to add the charcoal powder to a large container. Add the water. Stir until blended. Pour the liquid into ice cube molds. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
