How to Make a Healthy Vanilla Cola

How to Make a Healthy Vanilla Cola

Isn’t there something so charismatic about the combination of cola and vanilla? Coca-Cola® hit on this winning combination when it combined these two flavors into one delicious drink they called Vanilla Coke®.

In its first year on the market, a whopping 29% of all American households stocked the refreshing beverage and Vanilla Coke® was hailed by the Cola-Cola Company as “the greatest innovation since Diet Coke in 1983.”

As much as our mouths love it, Vanilla Coke’s ingredients are terrible for our bodies. In fact, they are downright toxic. They include Carbonated water, High fructose corn syrup, Caramel color, Phosphoric acidNatural flavors, and Caffeine. Coca-Cola’s website even goes so far as to announce: This product includes ingredients sourced from genetically engineered (GE) crops, commonly known as GMOs. Yikes! (Read more about The Hidden Dangers of Drinking Soda HERE.)

Cracking open an ice cold can of Vanilla Coke® and taking that first sweet sip is a moment we didn’t want to lose forever, and so we decided to recreate the flavor by using Longevity Soda® concentrates. This way we can enjoy a vanilla cola without toxic chemicals, and lots of body-enhancing superherb nutrition!

The superstar ingredients of our Vanilla Cola recipe are Longevity Soda® Cola Soda Concentrate and Longevity Soda® Vanilla Cream Soda Concentrate.

What makes these ingredients so much more healthy than the real Vanilla Coke ingredients? Reishi mushroom, astragalus, goji berries…and it’s sugar-free and organic too!

Don’t let these odd sounding ingredients fool you though, our Vanilla Cola tastes just like the real thing!

The Benefits of Cola Soda Concentrate

The classic flavor of Cola offers you one of the most scientifically studied mushrooms on the planet – Reishi, which has earned notable credibility in the medical world for its proven anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor properties.

Ordinary Vanilla Coke isn't made with Reishi Mushroom


Like many herbs, its measurable antioxidant activity contributes to building the strength of your immune system. Reishi is special, however, in that while it can boost your immune system, it can also calm your immune system. So depending on what your body needs at any given moment, reishi can help your body adapt.

Studies have shown reishi to promote feelings of peace as it balances the endocrine system, playing a powerful role in mental clarity and stress reduction.

The more consistently you consume reishi, the more it works within you to increase your vitality. Many Chinese herbalists agree: If there is one herb you should commit to taking every single day, reishi is it! On its own, reishi is very bitter and difficult to consume. Longevity Soda™ Cola makes drinking reishi simple, easy, and delicious!

Reishi is known to:

  • Enhance overall health and longevity*
  • Support energy levels*
  • Support healthy sleep cycles*
  • Promote a sense of well-being*
  • Reduce feelings of stress*
  • Support the immune system*
  • Support the circulatory system*
  • Support healthy brain function*
  • Support healthy hormone production*
  • Support healthy liver function*

The Benefits of Vanilla Cream Soda Concentrate

The sweet flavor of Vanilla Cream brings the immune boosting power of Astragalus and mood-boosting energy of Gojis to our Vanilla Cola recipe.

Astragalus is a powerful adaptogenic plant that has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Hailed for its immune system boosting strength, Astragalus is a powerhouse when it comes to keeping your body healthy and stress-free.

Ordinary Vanilla Coke doesn't contain Astragalus

Astragalus contains saponins, flavonoids, and polysaccharides which help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, fight the negative effects of free radicals, and keep your immune system strong against microbial and viral attacks. Studies have shown these saponins and polysaccharides to be inflammatory-protective and anti-tumor. Astragalus is very protective to the kidneys and rest of the renal system, as well.

Astragalus is known to:

  • Support the immune system*
  • Inflammatory-protective*
  • Anti-viral and anti-tumor*
  • Protect the kidneys and renal system*
  • Support the cardiovascular system*
  • Fight against free radicals and oxidative stress*
  • Enhance overall health and longevity*
  • Reduce feelings of stress*
  • Support energy levels*

Goji Berries are arguably the world’s most healthy superfruit, having been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Goji berries offer a wide range of vitamins, trace minerals, and phytonutrients to support your body’s immune system, weight, energy levels, sleep cycles, mental health, and reduced stress levels.

Ordinary Vanilla Coke doesn't contain Goji Berries

Gojis have been studied extensively for their ability to generate feelings of calm, well-being, and happiness. They support gastrointestinal health and support healthy bones and a healthy heart. They are packed with beta carotene which helps protect your eyes and bring luster to your skin. These powerful berries support so many systems in your body while tasting sweet and delicious!

Goji Berries are known to:

  • Offer vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients*
  • Support immune system*
  • Enhance energy*
  • Promote healthy sleep cycles*
  • Promote feelings of well-being*
  • Support digestive health*
  • Support skeletal system*
  • Support cardiovascular system*
  • Enhance beauty*
