Pressed Juicery carries a variety of classic green and citrus blends, but if you’re looking for a more adventurous flavor, try the Activated Charcoal Lemonade. It’s made with lemon, lavender, honey, and activated charcoal. According to the website, “Our activated charcoal is made from charcoaled coconut shells. Charcoal is porous and absorbent. When it goes into the body, it acts like a sponge, absorbing toxins and carrying them out as it leaves. It’s an all-natural detoxifier that helps remove toxins from the body.” (Find a location near you.)
