Raspberry, Peach, Almond & Pine Nut Smoothie

On the topic of kittens, my kids were arguing about something that they didn't agree on at the backseat of the car. They are both big cat lovers and they have been on to the new kittens that the neighborhood stray cat gave birth to. My 8-year old son was describing the colors of the new kittens and and their genders. Black is female, spotted black is male and so on. My 3-year old daughter instead was contradicting him the whole time he was speaking, obviously disagreeable to everything that he was saying. When asked why, she obnoxiously declared that all female kittens are all white with pink bows on one ear.  So all of the kittens in the neighborhood are male! Oh dear, how do you tell a little girl that Hello Kitty doesn't exist?

I told her softly that Hello Kitty does not exist in the real world, that she's just a fictional character but I wasn't as fast as my son's harsh declaration of the truth highlighted with a teasing laughter. I had a crying girl with a little broken heart at the backseat. Sigh. They will smarten up eventually. For some reason, this smoothie reminds me of Hello Kitty and that day my daughter found out that her favorite cat character will never materialize in front of her. 

I always welcome a sweet and refreshing smoothie in the morning, sometimes in the middle of the day too. Mixing raspberries, peaches and pine nuts with almond milk is one good combination that is so pleasant to drink. I absolutely love this smoothie!

This smoothie's recipe can be accessed at She Knows. It's a site with a lot of interesting stuff to see in various topics. There, I also create recipes aside from the ones that I keep in this blog.
