Natural Cola


I’m posing in honor of Coca-Cola because I can’t drink it so I made my own.

If you want the recipe, go to Not Quite Nigella. The only changes I made were: we used Turbinado Sugar instead of white sugar, Sucanat instead of brown sugar, I didn’t use coriander seeds but 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, I didn’t use lavender, I used 1 cinnamon stick instead of cassia bark and I didn’t add caramel food coloring.

These are the ingredients before we boiled it.


After 20 minutes of boiling, we cooled it and filtered it.


I thought the color looked a little like mud.


I added half a cup of Natural Sparkling Water and half a cup of my Natural Cola together and I drank it.



And then came the BURP!


One thought on “Natural Cola

  1. Good job, Independent Kid! Don’t worry, you are not missing anything in not drinking Coca Cola. I have not drank one in 20 years and I have no desire to drink it. Doing your own drink is better and you can make sure it does not have anything that is not healthy.
    Your concoction looks so good, I want to try it one of these days.
