Omg you guys, I’m so excited about today’s smoothie that I’m just going to skip over the intro entirely and welcome back to the blog my dear friend and smoothie maker extraordinaire, Bevan!!



Bevan is back y’all. And she comes bearing gifts. The gift of a delicious smoothie and pictures of her new kitten, Randall. (In the words of Bevan, “he’s not a kit-nine, he’s a kit-TEN”)

Yay for Randall! I’ve recently started calling him ‘the Great Ran-DALLy’ like he is a magician or an illusionist or a WWE wrestler.

The Almond Kitten Smoothie 

(No kitten helper necessary, but suggested)

  • 1 handful of frozen kale
  • 1/2 a pear
  • handful of blueberries
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1 scoop of green vibrance
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter


  • 2 frozen shots of wheatgrass
  • 1 splash of bees pollen to top it off


And just like that- a creamy, dairy-free smoothie chock full of super-foods you will LOVE! So cheers to your kitten, and if you don’t have a kitten you can cheers to Randall.

norm kittens

Happy Friday all!

Anything big planned this weekend?

Are you a dog person or a cat person? Neither? Both? (I’m a bit more of a dog person, but Randall might make me a convert :) )

Do you have a pet? What’s his/her name??

54 Thoughts on “Foodstuff Friday: Almond Kitten Smoothie

  1. I love to make smoothies after long runs/getting my sweat on in summer time! I’m not much of a cat person, but kittens are so adorable! My husband & I grew with dogs, so we knew we wanted our own when we got married. Our sweet MacAfee will be 10 in November!

    • I know, I find myself craving smoothies in summer, they’re good all year, but i dont crave them like i do when it’s hot out. And yep, I had dogs growing up too. MacAfee is such a cute name!

  2. When I first read the title of your post, I thought Kitten Smoothie was some kind of new thing that I hadn’t heard about yet 😆 I think I’m more a cat person. I used to be more of a dog person, but over the years I’ve kind of become way more appreciate of the calmness and independence of cats. I think they just match my personality a lot better when it comes down to it. I wish I could have one but… pesky allergies 😡

    • Yeah I think thats really cool that you evolved from one to the other. Most people tend to pick a side and stick with it even if they do change. And lol the “kitten smoothie” should be a thing!

  3. This looks really good! I love any kind of smoothies with kale–I always feel like a power woman after drinking one.

    I love both dogs and cats, but I think dogs like me more. Plus, I’m allergic to cats, sooo…there’s that.

  9. KITTENS AND SMOOTHIES. Two of my most favorite things ever! Bevan has a very wonderful life 😀

    Chris and I have decided that I am a cat person (a quiet, sassy, homebody who likes yarn), but that I am very attracted to dog people (boisterous, energetic jokesters).

    No pets, but I do have a really wonderful jade plant that I rescued from the mean streets of San Francisco. Literally – I found him as a little stump in the middle of the road. Now he’s quite happy :)

  13. I don’t have anything too big planned this weekend except attending my local Strawberry Festival. I’m definitely a pet lover but I am more towards the dog loving side of things especially since I have my own little boy, Elmo. :) Have a great Friday!

  14. Smoothie looks and sounds good.. .and aw, such a cute kitten!

  15. I’m a new reader! I am totally a dog person. I love my dogs so much. I think cats are cute, but for some reason I just don’t bond them with. Have a great day! :)

  16. I have absolutely no plans this weekend, and I’m ridiculously happy about that. Woot relaxing!
    And really, I like both cats and dogs…but dogs have my heart right now, because I have pretty much the cutest pug ever.

  17. That almond kitten smoothie looks so yummy – and what a cute name for it! No big plans this weekend and I must say, I’m looking forward to that! Love my R&R!! 😉

    • sometimes R&R weekends are the best kind of weekends! Like when you get back to work on monday and actually feel rested, rather than worn out from traveling and whatnot. all good!

  18. 1. This looks amazing.
    2. That Kit-TEN is ADORABLE!

    Happy weekend!

  19. Randall is so excited to be featured on today’s post! He woke me up at 5:30am this morning to tell me all about it.
    I wish I had a puppy to keep him company but I’m afraid I don’t have enough room in my small NYC apartment.
    Love the comments, what an awesome group of smoothie & animal lovers!
    Happy longest day of the year everyone!

  20. That actually does look good! So healthy. So easy too! Yay for it being dairy free, I’m a big fan of that! I’m sure you already know I’m a dog person. My husband thinks cats came straight from Hell. Unfortunately, no kitties for us anytime soon hahaha.

  21. That smoothie looked amazing!
    I am doing a 5 miler tomorrow; super excited :) I am a dog person all the way, but I don’t have one (or any other pets)
    Liz @ The Girl on Fire Now recently posted…Awesome Run and AwarenessMy Profile

  22. Aww, that kitten is adorable! The smoothie looks darn tasty too!
    I am more of a dog person but I love kittys too. They can be more difficult to win over but if you find the right cat, then they’re great!
    Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health recently posted…All Over The Place + A Heart Pumping PlaylistMy Profile

  23. Aahhh I want that kitten! I’m a cat and a dog person since I have one of each and they’re best friends. I haven’t really bought kale in a while, but that smoothie makes me want to go buy some and start using it again.

  24. Haha this is so cute! My cats would definitely be all over this!
    Alyssa @ Road to RD recently posted…Summer 2013 Bucket ListMy Profile

  25. That smoothie sounds delicious! I am more of a dog person. Cat dander/hair makes me sneeze and get stuffed up. It’s awful. We have a guinea pig that my son, who was 3 at the time, named Deedee.
    Britt @ BrittsRunningStyle recently posted…This Always Makes Me…..My Profile

  26. I just printed this recipe! I don’t know which I want more, the smoothie or the cat! I have a little kitten named Frances (My mom tends to name our cats sort of human names. It’s weird) and she loves to ‘help’ in the kitchen. I just love itty bitty kitties, so I usually don’t mind! I tend to be more of a dog person, but when we adopted our kitten from the pound, I think I converted. Little kittens are just way too sweet! They’re a handful, but when they take their naps and look so cute, I love them all over again!

    That smoothie looks delish by the way! I can’t wait to try it for breakfast :)
