This iced activated charcoal latte is a stunning detoxifying drink that can help aid in digestion and rid your body of potential toxins. Made in just 5 minutes with 6 ingredients – it’s easy and oh-so-pretty in a very October kind of way.
Ok, so when was the last time you guys had a black, vanilla scented almond milk latte? Neverrr?! I thought that might be your answer.
My first time sipping one of these wasn’t too long ago actually. I had a little bit of experience with taking activated charcoal for an gas and an upset tummy, but never in the latte form. That was, until Patrick and I were hanging out in LA for our anniversary a month or so ago.
I know, I know – it’s a likely story. Girl goes to LA, tries a black latte and brings the recipe back home with her. But it’s so GOOD, you guys! I’m all for trends if they are actually worthy of some love. And it’s so tasty and easy to make that I thought you all would enjoy creating an iced activated charcoal latte in your kitchen, too!
And since it’s the beginning of October and Halloween is around the corner, it just kind of felt right.
Let me assure you this latte tastes way better than it looks, and is also pretty dang good for you. Activated charcoal is what gives it the deep (dare I say, “spooky”?) black hue, but mostly it just tastes like a very delicious vanilla almond milk latte.
This creamy collagen boosted iced coffee is made with your favorite cold brew coffee, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, a pinch of sea salt, and of course, collagen! Super easy to make and a seriously delicious caffeinated pick-me-up.
All the iced coffee lovers in the house raise your hands! 🙋🏼 I am that girl that drinks iced coffee all year round. Maybe a little less in the winter than in the summer – but really only because most coffee shops stop making cold brew after Thanksgiving 🙄.
I do ALSO love a steaming hot cup of joe when the timing is right, but if I had to pick one – it would be iced.
How about you guys? Team hot coffee or team iced coffee? I feel like that could be a very polarizing question…
Not looking for a fight… just trying to keep it real babes 😝
I actually photographed this recipe forever ago.
Like probably the beginning of summer. Which is a little embarrassing to say.
But I was making it and sharing it on my Instagram stories and just kept getting all the questions about it – so I thought that’s probably a sign that y’all would love a recipe! But then everything summer happened, my life got stupid crazy, and now here we are tip toeing the line between summer and fall and I’m all – HERE’S THAT ICED COFFEE RECIPE, GUYS!
Oh well, I hope you still love it anyways. Because it’s pretty bomb dot com.
I have been sitting on this recipe for so so long! Just waiting for the right moment to share it with you. And now that it’s officially December, I think it’s exactly the right time to show you how to make THE MOST EPIC peppermint mocha bulletproof coffee.
Coffee + peppermint + chocolate = one of those drinks that every cold day in December deserves.
On the weekends, topped off with a little whipped cream situation, and on the weekdays just whipped up quick as can be and poured it into a thermos on your way out the door for the perfect start to your day. Waaay healthier than the coffee shop’s peppermint mocha – have you ever read that long long list of ingredients on their mocha syrup? I will take a scoop of natural cacao powder over that any day of the week.
Plus everyone will think you’re toting around a regular cup of coffee or tea, when in reality you’ve got the most delicious (and HEALTHY!) peppermint mocha keeping you company. Totally a secret worth smiling about. And if they’re lucky you might even let them in on your sweet little mocha thrill.
