You know those different colored drinks I have in the morning and share on my Instagram? I’m gonna tell you guys now what they are and how you can try it out and make it yourself. As usual, the recipe is here and you can also watch the vid below to see how I make it. And when you scroll all the way to the end of this blog, I have a a pretty big #SosGiveaway that’s gonna be so fun to use if you also love making drinks like me!

Activated Charcoal Drink

I know it’s kinda shocking that this drink is so BLACK, but trust me when I say it doesn’t taste like uling at all. Lol. Not that I know what it tastes like. Hahaha. You know how we put charcoal in certain rooms or cars to suck all the bad smells out? That’s cause charcoal has this cool thing where it like attracts bad stuff out, so when you drink this, you’re helping flush out toxins from your body. I don’t drink this too often cause you don’t wanna overcleanse your body, but it’s really good to have once in a while.


– 1 glass of water

– 1/2 lemon, squeezed

– 1 Tbsp of honey

– Dash of turmeric powder

– 1 tsp grated ginger (more or less, depending on your liking)

– 1 tsp activated charcoal (I get mine at Real Food)

– 1 Tbsp of chia seeds

– Top with lemon zest


Just mix everything together!

Rose and Ginger Latté

Idk if it’s the French girl in me, but I really love flavors that are strong and striking, just like rose and ginger. This drink it just SO good. I drink it sometimes as a nightcap to end my day or I also have it in the morning with a shot of espresso.


– 8 oz. almond milk (steamed)

– Dash of cardamom

– Dash of cinnamon powder

– Dash of ginger powder

– Espresso shot (optional)

– 1 to 2 tsps rose syrup (I get mine from Assad Mini Mart in Jupiter, Makati)

– Dehydrated rose to top

– Saffron to top

– Thyme to top


1. Steam or heat the almond milk. I used my DeLonghi espresso machine, but if you’re heating the milk on a stove, you can already mix in the cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger powders so it gets infused.

2. In a glass, put the rose syrup in. Then pour in the almond milk infused with powders.

3. Top with dehydrated rose, thyme, and saffron. Put an espresso shot in if you wanna caffeinate your latté.
