Cola, Cherries, Weird Coconut Milk and Of Course Cats!

As promised I tried the culture cola flavor of Live kombucha yesterday. Now I haven't had soda in a very long time, especially cola. Cola was never my preferred choice. But I have fuzzy memories of liking RC cola better than Coke or Pepsi, and this kombucha reminded me of RC cola. It's really delicious. Like a wonderful fizzy cola minus all the weird ingredients. And these Live kombuchas are low in calories and sugar, but you would never guess from the taste. Totally recommend!
This was a cherry, banana and hemp seed smoothie. I forgot that I had found frozen cherries on sale the other day. Pretty tasty with bananas. Cherries are very good for you, and I don't eat them nearly enough!
.
For dinner I whipped up a quick and easy potato and pea curry. Don't make the mistake I made. When I was at Big Lots, I saw that they had canned coconut milk for really cheap. I was actually out of coconut milk, and I knew I wanted to make this curry so I picked up a can. I didn't read the ingredients because it's coconut milk. So, when I opened the can, I noticed it was a weird texture, and smelled super sweet. So, I looked at the ingredients, and it had tapioca starch and a few other things that I had never heard of. So it had a starch thickened consistency, and one of the ingredients had to be a sweetener. I won't make that mistake again. Coconut milk should have one ingredient and that's coconut milk. So, while this was edible, it wasn't the best curry I've ever made. Womp Womp.
And here's Kanye in her favorite place to be, right in the middle of a cuddle. No matter how small the space, she always finds a way to squeeze in!
Happy Friday!

  1. I love cherries in smoothies. They are good for depression. The kombucha sounds great. I need to start brewing again.

    1. Good to know about cherries. I knew they were good, but i didn't know that. I'll have to use them in my smoothies more often!

    2. I need to start brewing my own kombucha again too. It's so easy and sooooooo much cheaper!

  2. I picked up that cola kombucha as a treat while grocery shopping today. Not my favorite. I haven't seen the orange creamsicle one! I want it sooo bad!

    1. I liked the cola, but it wasn't my favorite either, but I think that's just because cola was never really my jam. The dreamy orange is seriously so freaking delicious! I hope you can find it sometime. I just know it would be really great on a warm summer day.

  3. I seriously have to make the trek to get some of that kombucha! It sounds so good! That one and the Dr. Pepper one definitely have piqued my interest. I love cherries too and I have a bag of frozen cherries waiting to be blended into a smoothie once it finally warms up again. How strange about the coconut milk! Too bad the curry wasn't the best but at least it was edible. I'm sure the next one will be amazing!

    Love the fur baby pile so much :) They are so adorable and snuggly.

    1. I hope you can find the kombucha. It's so amazing how they make it taste like soda!
      I'm going to be adding cherries to smoothies from now on if they help with depression, and they're delicious!

  5. How odd about that coconut milk. Sugar does not go in coconut milk unless it is meant to be condensed coconut milk.
    I love cherries! I have been meaning to pick up a bag of frozen cherries for ages, but I have so much other frozen fruit in my freezer right now. I am trying to eat that down first.

    Love the cuddle pile.

    1. I so agree. That's why I didn't check the ingredients. No more discount coconut milk for me!
      Cherries are so good. I realized i definitely don't eat/drink them enough!
