You're stuck in the house, stressed out, and giving in to your dog's begging eyes because they're just too much to resist. Instead of risking stomach discomfort by sharing unsafe people-food with your dog, make them a healthy dog treat and give yourself something fun to do.
This recipe is so quick and easy, your kids can even help!
All you need for these frozen treats are:
- 1 mashed Banana (Fiber & Potassium)
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries (Antioxidant-rich!)
- 1/4 Cup Natural Peanut Butter (NO XYLITOL!) (Protein & heart-healthy fats)
- 1/4 Cup Water
- A blender
- An ice cube tray, fun-shaped mold, or foam egg carton
Gather your ingredients and place them into your trusty blender! (hold off on the water just yet)
Blend until smooth. If your mixture is too thick, add water as needed to create a smoothie-like texture.
It should make a beautiful shade of purple goodness!
Then simply pour your mixture into your tray or mold!
Freeze for 6-8 hours. Once they are frozen solid, carefully remove and store in a freezer bag or container for up to 2 months! These melt quickly so pop them out and put them back into the freezer quickly.
You can also switch up the ingredients in theses Pup-Sicles to add some variety!
Try adding some spinach for an extra health boost or substitute the blueberries for plain pumpkin puree! Just make sure your ingredients are dog safe!
That's it! So easy! So healthy!
Your dog is going to look at you today and think "How did I get so lucky?"
And you will surely be wondering the same thing because obviously, your dog is the best!
Friendly Reminder: Blueberries are beautiful but can leave stains on your carpet or couch so please feed these in a contained area. We don't know about you but our dogs like to parade exciting new treats through the house. So, we've learned through trial and error. 😊
