Cloudy Detox Smoothie

Updated: Mar 28

Gray is not all dull or depressing, in fact, it is quite exciting.

At least in smoothie form, it is…


One of the hardest things to do when it is a cloudy day and the sun has decided to relocate at our inconvenience is find motivation. We hit an energy slump, the lack of sun streaming through the window can put an absolute understandable rut in your day, and leave you wanting to crawl back into bed before the day even starts.


In a string of cloudy and may I add cold days, I invested in fuzzy socks, a Netflix binge, but also took time to come up with a recipe that would at the very least help to kick the dreary and weariness to the club. My secret ingredient? No secret, it’s charcoal. And no not the kind you use for the barbecue. It’s activated charcoal, active for deflated days am I right? This stuff is magical! It helps you kickstart your day, even the rest of your week, and be what I like to think of as your sunshine substitute because it can trap bodily toxins, lower cholesterol, reduce gas & bloating, promote kidney function, cures a hangover.
