From uber healthy turmeric and beetroot lattes, to the downright weird unicorn lattes (yup, actually a thing), our obessesion with fashion's favourite breakfast food has got a little crazy.

And it's not stopping any time soon. Once the go-to drink for health fanatics and Psycle addicts everywhere, the turmeric latte, drunk for its anti-inflammatory magic, has finally been out-hyped.

The latest superfood coffee collab, charcoal lattes are the new detox trend hitting our health radar (and our Instagram).

Using activated charcoal, rather than the stuff you scrape off toast/your dad uses for the fire at Christmas, charcoal lattes are all about giving your stomach a much-needed break.

To be more specific, activated charcoal is nutritionists' new food du jour thanks to its proven ability to relieve gastrointestinal issues and, get this, help symptoms associated with hangovers.

Finally a scientifically proven reason to down every coffee we can find when we're feeling less than fresh. YAS QUEEN.

Health-based side note: Charcoal can weaken certain medications so if you're popping pills for something specific or have a pre-existing medical condition, drop your GP a line before jumping on the charcoal latte wagon.

So excited the Apothecary + Tea room is open 🌿 more on @the.interior #cafedesign #charcoallatte

Attracting dirt and oil faster than T-Swift moves on from relationships, charcoal-based skincare is the quickest way to a flawless complexion.

Get your hands on Sanctuary Spa's Warming Detox Charcoal Wash that warms your skin on application (always good when the hot water's on the blink). Trust us, your pores will thank you.

Our personal fave? Brush those charcoal latte teeth stains away with Sister & Co. Skin Food Raw Coconut & Activated Charcoal Tooth Whitening Polish.

Sounds backwards to brush your teeth with black tooth paste to make them whiter, but it totally works. How? The charcoal acts like a magnet for bacteria and dirt, taking it away when you rinse.
