Mellow Yellow Smoothie


From yellow tulips, to one mr Y, to another smoothie, this time, of course, yellow. A smoothie that obviously is very tempting for one (yellow nuance) cream cat named Pelle. It was a wonderfully yummy smoothie made from two bananas, two squeezed oranges, one kiwi and a handful of goji berries.

I'm sure one quarter or so of a galia melon would have made a lovely addition to the foursome. Perhaps a piece of fresh (or for that matter tinned) pineapple too.

Dash of cardamom, sprinkle of psyllium and generous amount of sunflower seeds - oh my, yellow is truly mellow.

And how did Pelle like it? CUTE pic! : ))

Mama Feline said...

The smoothie and kitty were made for each other! Both look deeevine!

Sharon said...

YUMMY Mellow Yellow Monday:)

VioletSky said...

What an interesting smoothie.

MYM said...

LOL - the cat looks very interested in it!

It looks good ... sound very healthy too!

Fortune Cookies said...

kitty looks a bit curious for sure.

Tarolino said...

Not only does it look delicious, it also sounds delicious. I would not mind one at all but apart from being too lazy to make on I lack all the ingredients too.

PS: I too like yellow houses with white corners.

Pia K said...

Thanks, Speedycat, glad you liked it!

Ha, ha, well actually he didn't appreciate it being all fruits and no yoghurt, John - so I got all the yumminess to myself:)

A kitty-smoothie match made in heaven then, Forever Feline:)

Indeed it is, Sharon:)

I think I prefer the furry smoothie - but there's not much to choose between them!

And a yellow cat to go with it. That looks pretty tasty, actually. I'm going to have to dust off my smoothy machine, I think.

I'd never heard of the berries. The photo on wiki is of a very pretty red berry.

I wonder how they taste..

Dianne said...

what a great close-up of kitty doing his own version of a tasting :)

Pia K said...

Thanks for visiting, VioletSky.

Oh, indeed it was soo goood, Drowsey Monkey! Although I should probably have had it in the morning because I of all the perk me up-ingredients that kept me awake at night...:)

Thanks for stopping by, Fortune Cookies.

Tarolino, it's so simple (if you have the ingredients at home:) to make, peel, slice and dice, whizz in a blender and hey presto, fruity heaven!

Pia K said...

Thanks, kim!

Ha, ha, that's quite alright, AFoS:)

Babs, I hope you have treated yourself to one by now then:)

You do that, Tarheel Rambler, I should remember to use mine more often, so easy so good in many ways.

Pagan Sphinx, apparently the dried berries are a bit of a snack thing in the skinny fashion industry, but they taste quite awful in a bitter way right from the bag. But they go very well in a smoothie or I suppose in other food, brimming with good stuff and antioxidants as they do.

Thanks, Dianne, you never know who decides stopping by a photosession in a home with cats:)

Oh Pia K!..That golden Pelle is a real brick...just game for anything, eh?
Did you slip a piece of cat treat into that glass?
Bernie is one for eating ice-cream but the first thing he does, is give Shopper a lick or two of it.
Yuk! And then he eats the rest and the pair of them fight over who gets to lick out the bowl!
Give that Pelle a pat on the head for us.....Love Terry

The yellow is mellow and what a wonderful colour match for the kitty cat. Lovbely.

Pia K said...

Oh he seems to be just about everywhere these days, Terry, cat treat or not. Today I was cleaning out the laundry room where I also have the litter boxes and he was just so nosey about everything...:)

My mother is just the same with cats, and Malte the dog, share her spoons and icecream and I thinks it's... less than appealing. But on the other hand I do think it's a rather endearing feature to be so charmed by the animals and their imploring eyes and insisting behaviour:)

Glad you liked it, me ann my camera!
