I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

  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 mac and cheese using leftover cheese



I had a lot of vegan cheese in my fridge so I thought it would be a good time to try and vegan macaroni and cheese it turned out delicious. 

All you need is some vegan butter, vegan cheese, and plant milk. I thought the barista blend would make it creamier but it didn’t do any plant milk will work. 

The presidents choice vegan butter i found at no frills is one of the best vegan butters I have tried highly recommend. Melt a little butter in the pan add cheeses and keep stirring. The cheese co cheese and Violife Parmesan block melted really well. The Violife shredded was harder to melt and the slices did not melt at all. Keep stirring and add some vegan cream cheese and plant milk as necessary to get a smooth sauce. 

Add some spices for flavour I added curry powder, salt, and pepper. Add macaroni and stir. I added fried onions and basil for more flavour. 

Then I added some of the Violife Tex mex and baked it in the air fryer oven. This cheese actually melted well the other Violife varieties I have tried do not melt like this here is a link to a picture on Instagram  of the Melted cheese. Enjoy
