Drink this refreshing lemonade to detoxify your body. Powdered spirulina is a good substitute for the charcoal.
4-6 Servings
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 ½ + 6 cups cold water
  • Juice of 3-4 lemons

  4. Stir in the lemon juice and activated charcoal powder into date mixture until incorporated.

  5. Add the remaining 6 cups of water. Stir again, pour into serving glasses, and enjoy!
