Pineapple Charcoal Detox

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby kale
  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 1 apple - chopped
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp activated charcoal
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Routinely used in hospitals and emergency rooms to help with acute poisonings or overdoses, activated charcoal is considered a health food when consumed in very small doses. Because it binds and flushes toxins via adsorption, a process in which the toxins get stuck to the charcoal and leave the body when it does, it’s a great gentle detoxifier that may also help with gas and bloating. With healthy fiber from an apple, kale and flax, as well as good fats from coconut milk, this sweet and creamy smoothie should help your digestion move along at a healthy pace!
