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.

The taste of vegan mini donuts without the effort of making donuts



 

I recently found out that most pancake mixes are vegan. The one I found with the best ingredients is a whole wheat mix. 

To the pancake mix I added some water, almond milk, and oil. I didn’t measure just mixed ingredients until the consistency looked good. 

Since I have no patience I didn’t let the mix rest and attempted to make one pan size pancake. I spread the pancake too thin and it got stuck to the pan so I scrambled it. Then I added vegan butter to the pan. You could add sugar but I added maple syrup. 

The result was delicious. They definitely tasted like donuts or mini churros. If you don’t mind your pancake not being pretty give this a try.
