Day 5 Jamaica Trip April 2024

 Today my friends aunt was coming to pick us up at 10. I went for breakfast at 9:30. My friend was there earlier and she got some plantains today but they weren’t very ripe. Breakfast was the same as yesterday for me so I didn’t take any pictures. In the morning I did call for some bottles of water to my room but it was too early I learned I could get some at the buffet.  My friends aunt was delayed so had time to sit at the coffee shop. This was the view from the coffee area. We chatted with security and the taxi driver at the hotel for awhile before we left. We didn’t leave the hotel until 12. My friends aunt got proper plantains we ate it in the car. Today we decided to go to Ocho Rios. I have never been there and it is not that far from where we are staying. We have a driver booked for tomorrow to take us around the area and Bob Marley house tour. My friends aunt wanted Pizza Hut we stopped in a plaza that had KFC, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut. Last time I was in Jamaica I saw the plan

Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan


I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes. 

I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour. 

That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey. 

I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing anything to them incase it didn’t work out. I think they are pretty good on their own. I cut them in pieces just to make them look more like Chick-Fil-A nuggets. 

The lemon I used was very juicy I had squeezed some of the lemon into my water and added some vegan honey. It It was kind of like a lemonade which is my favourite drink. While I was drinking the lemon water I looked up Chick-Fil-A desserts they have a lemon frosty.. I didn’t have the ingredients for a copy cat recipe but I had some vegan ice cream from a local company called the Merry Dairy in my freezer. The flavour is mint chocolate chip but the flavour is very subtle and to me tasted like vanilla with a few chocolate chips. I added it to my lemon water to see what would happen. It was so good the slight mint flavour made it taste like a fancy drink. I just mixed it with a spoon and it’s so frothy. This was my favourite part of the meal. 

This was a pretty good meal. I now live in an area that does not have easy access to fast food. Even though I have never had Chick-Fil-A it was nice to have something that is like fast food. I am glad I made it.
