Cola is full of sugar and is unhealthy. Not if you make the Coke yourself. All you need is cola-cabbage.
From healthy cola. Herb can really be made Cola
Cola is one of the world’s most popular soft drinks and has been indispensable in the supermarket for decades. Especially children love coke and sodas, but what many parents do not like to see, after all, these drinks with their high sugar content are not unjustifiably considered fattening and caries causers. In recent years, however, more and more herbal sodas have come on the market, which are available both as organic sodas and sugar-reduced to buy and even taste the little ones.
But there are also other ways to make healthy and delicious lemonade with herbs from the local garden, which is not only tasty for children. One of the most interesting herbs with a very special taste is e.g. The Cola herb, from which you can make a lot.
Taste like cola, healthy as herbs
The cola herb, also called camphor hybrid, grows in Central Europe and Asia. The plant bears his name because of its shoot tips and the young leaves that smell of cola and taste it. In addition to the interesting taste of the herb but also has positive health effects, as it is stomach-enhancing and promotes digestion. But beware: older leaves taste bitter and should therefore not be harvested.
The great thing: because the cabbage tastes like cola, you can make a healthy alternative to Coke.
