Black Popcorn

  • 6 cups prepared popcorn
  • 1/2-1 tsp activated charcoal more if necessary

Green Popcorn

  • 6 cups prepared popcorn
  • 1/2-1 tsp matcha or spirulina powder more if necessary


  • Sprinkle activate charcoal or matcha powder on the popcorn.
  • Shake or mix to coat.
  • If necessary, add more powder and remix.


  • With activated charcoal, a little goes a long way. It is very powdery and spreads easily, so start with a small amount, you can always add more!
  • While activated charcoal has very little flavor, matcha powder and spirulina powder do have a slight flavor.¬† Both are great with plain or buttered popcorn, and matcha also goes well with kettle corn and other slightly sweet popcorns.
  • You can easily half or double this recipe as needed.
  • Please note, while activated charcoal is generally considered safe, it can interfere with certain medications. You can read more about activated charcoal¬†here.
