Activated Charcoal Soft-Serve Recipe

by Nicole Gulotta for Thrive Market

Chill out with a scoop of creamy soft-serve that’s anything but basic. We blend whole milk, cream, and sugar with activated charcoal, an ingredient that goes through a special heating process (aka “activation”) which helps boost its detoxifying properties. This dessert is ready in just 30 minutes, but if you prefer a thicker consistency, just chill the soft serve in the freezer overnight.

Activated Charcoal Soft-Serve

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Active Time:


2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
⅔ cup granulated sugar
½ cup Country Life Activated Charcoal
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Whisk all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Pour into ice cream maker and churn for 14 to 17 minutes, or until ice cream resembles soft-serve. Enjoy immediately, or if you’d prefer a firmer consistency, transfer to an airtight container and freeze overnight.
