I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

Image
  I had stars that were going to expire so I decided to try the new refresher. I have seen some reviews of people that love it and others of people that hate it. It’s often sold out but I was in a location where they had it.  I am not really a fan of pineapple flavours. I like other refreshers from Starbucks and I love passion fruit so thought it might be good. There are options to add coconut milk or lemonade. I always get coconut milk in my coffee but I don’t like it in refreshers and I always like lemonade. The drink at first seemed okay but it had a strange bitter aftertaste after each sip. I am not sure the addition of the lemonade made it like that but my mom and I both didn’t like it. It was drinkable but not something I would order again. I will stick to the the Mango Dragon Fruit refresher as my go to refresher from Starbucks.  Let me know if you have tried it in the comments or on Instagram @livingottawalocal.

Vegan Veggie Burger Soup Recipe

This soup is so good I am returning to blogging just so I don't forget the recipe. I watch a You tuber named Wicked Penny and she is making soup every Saturday on her channel. She made a cheeseburger soup so if you would like to see the inspiration for this soup go watch wicked penny on YouTube here is the link  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5euE9Pgas . I used most of the vegetables pictured below because they were on sale. I recommend using an onion and green pepper for flavour. As the soup is vegan I like to use a potato and sweet potato to give it a creamy texture. The carrots were on sale so I added them use any veggies you like. veggies make the soup base I didn't have any soup stock but spicy ketchup, seasoned diced tomato and whatever spices you have will give the soup a nice flavour. If you don't have spicy ketchup add hot sauce and ketchup. I used seasoning salt, smoked paprika, pepper, and curry spice just what is in my spice cabinet. You can re
