SIMILAR to the star 43-year-old, Kourtney Kardashian's new frosty smoothie is grungy and organic – but is it worth the price to get a taste of the celebrity concoction?
One $155 grocery bill and way too much sugar later, the health guru's Erewhon detoxifying drink left me with a surprising taste in my mouth and a purple-stained mustache above it.
As the queen of the autumn season, it was only right Kourtney started the spooky celebration by releasing a touch of gothic wellness.
On October 15th, the reality star turned holistic master launched a brand new $18 dark detoxifying smoothie with Erewhon market.
Following the luxury grocery store's previous smoothie collaboration with Hailey Bieber, Kourtney's drink will cleanse your body rather than clear your skin.
By mixing the sweet extracts of coconut with pure supplements such as activated charcoal and fulvic acid drops, this thick swirl of black and white is said to make you feel as good as it tastes.

But, of course, in Kardashian fashion, the blended concoction is both exclusive and expensive – you have to be in Los Angeles to get it and in the right tax bracket to buy it.
Since flying across the country seemed impractical, even with such an enticing drink promotion, I decided to recreate the frozen cup at home.
And let me tell you, the total cost was about half the ticket price to fly there and get one.
Nonetheless, the taste of the tall, dark detox drink shocked me.

Now, I wasn't a fan of the Hailey Bieber strawberry glaze smoothie as it was a bit too sweet for my liking, and it took away my appetite for far too many hours because of how filling it was.
So, before I even took a sip of Kourtney's concoction, I was already worried it would leave the same sinking feeling in my stomach.
Then I thought to myself, there's no way Kourtney would come up with a drink that was too heavy or too sugary – she's the healthy one, after all.
When I looked up the recipe, I found a list of all "organic" ingredients.
As I said, the drink isn't meant for just anyone to try, you have to be able to afford it.
However, I decided to ignore that obvious recipe over-step and add some regular, non-organic options to my basket.
The organic contents were cacao nibs, coconut cream, yogurt, plant-based protein powder, and frozen blueberries.
I opted for the regular versions of the remaining eight ingredients.
In total, the 13 ingredients cost about $155, and that's much less than it would have been if they were all organic.
The three most expensive products consisted of the beneficial supplements: Four Sigmatic's $50 Plant-Based Protein, the $24.99 blk. Fulvic Mineral Drops, and the $23.99 NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid.
KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN DETOXIFYING SMOOTHIE
3 spoonfuls of creamy coconut yogurt
1 scoop of Four Sigmatic's Plant-Based Protein
1/2 cup of almond milk
2 spoonfuls of coconut cream
1/2 spoonful of maple syrup
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
15 drops of blk. Fulvic Mineral Drops
2 capsules of activated charcoal
1 spoonful of NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid
A sprinkle of cacao powder
1/2 cup of coconut water
After looking through the recipe list, I realized there were no measurements to be found anywhere, which meant I had to eyeball it.
If I wasn't going to be able to make it exactly as Erewhon does, I needed to make it look like it.
I started by blending the light-colored ingredients first: the banana, creamy coconut yogurt, plant-based protein, almond milk, coconut cream, and maple syrup.
As I poured in the spoonful of maple syrup, I began to grasp the scam I had fallen victim to.
Between the heavy coconut cream, maple nectar, and thick yogurt, the sugar count seemed high, and I hadn't even added the cacao yet.
I powered through, trusting the process, and held on to the hope that the holistic queen would never waste our money on a phony health product.
I blended the first six ingredients and poured half of that smoothie into a glass.
The color seemed to be beige, not white.
Next, I grabbed the remaining ingredients and added them to the other half still in the blender.
Since I went heavy on the blueberries, the second mixture turned out more purple than I had anticipated.
I still don't understand how Erewhon's version comes out in black and white, maybe all the pictures of the smoothie are edited. I wouldn't put it past the Kardashian marketing team.
But once the cold concoction hit my taste buds, none of that mattered.
The smooth drink mixed with the added cacao crunch tasted as expensive as it was.
While this smoothie filled me up, it didn't leave me with the same sinking stomach as Hailey Bieber's did.
Although, Kourtney could've been more honest about how much sugar was in this tasty drink.
I'm not sure how much of a detox it gave me, but I did notice a little bit of an energy kick followed by a sugar crash nap.
Personally, I don't think any drink is worth $18, let alone $155.
