A Sweet and Tasty Ice Pop for You and Your Dog
We at DOGIZ recommend preparing delicious and easy-making popsicles, which are suitable for you and your dog!
1 cup of natural creamy peanut butter
1 cup of yogurt
2 tbsp of honey
Optional- Additional fruit that you and your dog like.
Combine all the ingredients together in a blender, mix well until you get a relatively smooth texture. You should squash the fruit well, adding date honey instead of regular honey is also an option. After blending the mixture, pour it into plastic cups and add a stick for a comfortable grip. Insert the cups into your freezer. After a few hours your ice pops are ready!
We recommend preparing two versions of this recipe. In the one intended for your dog, you can place a doggy treat or a bone instead of the stick.
A Pumpkin Snack with Peanut Butter
¼ cup natural peanut butter
2 ½ cups of whole-wheat flour
1 cup full of squashed pumpkin
Heat your oven to 175 degrees, prepare a pan with baking paper and spread some olive oil.
Mix the eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin until you get a smooth mixture, then add in the flour. Knead the mixture until an elastic dough forms. Now, you need to roll out the dough with a rolling pin and flatten it to a thickness of about ½ cm. You can design the snacks into different shapes like a bone-shaped snack or any other fun alternatives you have in mind.
Place the snacks on the pan with the baking paper and bake for approx. 20 minutes, until the edges of the snacks are golden-colored.
A Meat Treat for Your Doggy
Instead of spending money on buying meat snacks for your dog, you can easily make them yourself at your own home!
Mix 2 eggs, 1 cup of water, 1 tbs of salt, 3 cups of whole-wheat flour and 10 tbsp of beef fat.
Whip the eggs, then add the rest of the ingredients and knead until it forms a smooth dough.
Flatten the dough to a thickness of about ½ cm and make bone-shaped or any other shaped treats. Insert the treats into the oven and bake for approx. 30 minutes at a temperature of 175 degrees.
We are sure you will enjoy these delicious treats, and that your doggy will enjoy them even more 😊
