Sorry, but this ‘healthy coke’ trend on TikTok sounds absolutely rank
Balsamic vinegar in water? Sure
TikTok has been responsible for some truly delicious recipes over the years – pesto eggs, feta pasta, and whipped coffee, but it’s also showcased some rather odd recipes too, lettuce water anyone? And now the latest trending recipe on TikTok is healthy coke, and it sounds absolutely disgusting. Why do we need a “healthy” version of coke? It’s delicious enough as it is.
Healthy coke is created from mixing a dash of balsamic vinegar with ice, and carbonated water. The recipe was first shared last week by TikToker Amanda Jones who said her pilates instructor swears by it and drinks the vinegar water mix daily. In the TikTok Amanda creates the drink for herself and says it tastes “so good”.

Amanda’s TikTok has now been viewed over 6 million times and the hashtag associated with the trend has over 30 million views. The presenters of the Today Show Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush even tried it live on air. Though Amanda claims it tastes amazing, the rest of TikTok is filled with mixed reviews on the beverage.
TikToker Ashley McCrary- Mac said the drink tastes good but doesn’t have the exact same flavour as a coke. However many people say it tastes “gross” and have filmed themselves spitting out the drink because of the flavour.
If you want to find out for yourself how it actually tastes, this is the recipe for healthy coke:
1. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar to a cup of ice
2. Take any sparkling beverage (Amanda uses a La Croix sparkling water) and add to the cup
3. Mix together
4. Enjoy or vomit, it’s up to your tastebuds
