Are you sick of fruit smoothies yet? Think about how I felt...I had to eat all of them in one week!
Actually, it wasn't that bad. It made for quite the varied breakfast each morning. This was the morning that I made my cats very angry however.
See, for a while there, they were getting a little bit of wet food every day. But then I quickly got tired of the fact that they only ate the expensive kind (Wellness brand, over $1 a can) and they didn't even actually eat it. They licked the gravy off the chicken and left the chicken pieces. So I stopped buying it and they didn't seem to miss it all that much.
Until this morning of this smoothie. I actually planned in advance for this one and found it online the night before. I knew I had all of the ingredients and we were good to go the next morning.
Except...my fresh peaches weren't ripe enough to put into a smoothie so I had to resort to the canned variety. Which, isn't terrible, except canned peaches come in a can with a pull tab. Just like wet cat food.
So I opened the peaches and found two balls of fur at my feet looking up at me. Oops?
When I explained that I didn't have cat food, Gidget cocked her ear and walked away. (This is her version of giving you the finger.) Itty, on the other hand, expressed her anger at me with raspy mew noises. (She doesn't meow, she mews.) Gullible human that I am, I stopped making my smoothie, apologized to the cats and immediately went to Amazon to order them some wet food.
Honeydew Peach Green Smoothie
Adapted from: All Smoothie Recipes
- 1 cup honeydew melon
- 1 cup peaches, diced
- 1 small banana
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 handful kale
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 cup ice
1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
The smoothie was great, better than I even expected but of course the cats guilt-tripped me into feeling badly about enjoying it.
(Their food arrived two days later - thank you Prime! - and all is well in the household again.)
