Inroduction

About this Recipe

I love a good smoothie. They provide a really quick way to get some goodness inside of you, especially when you’re busy and on the go. I was therefore inspired to come up with a doggy version, packed full of goodness, that could also double up as a nice frozen treat when they’ve been running around and have a full on pant going on.

This recipe features Strawberries, which contain antioxidents and also an enzyme that helps keep your dogs teeth white – No substitute for brushing unfortunately (anyone else feel like they’re wrestling a lion when brushing their dogs teeth, just me?), Banana is a good source of potassium and yoghurt adds in some protein and calcium. I always steer clear of Fat free as they can sometimes contain all kinds of unknown ingredients, Low fat is fine – In a nutshell it just needs to not contain any added sugars or sweeteners.

Ingredients

  • 6 – 8 Strawberries
  • 1 Small Ripe Banana
  • 3 Tbsp Natural Yoghurt
  • 1 Tsp Chia seeds (Optional)
  • 1 Tsp Freeze Dried Strawberries or Raspberries (Optional)

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Chop the stalks from the top of strawberries

Step 2

Throw the Strawberries, Banana and Yoghurt in your smoothie maker – I use my Nutri Bullet

Step 3

Whizz up for 30 seconds or so until all blended and a lovely pink colour

Step 4

Pour into your Mould, I used this one. A regular ice cube tray is also great though

Step 5

If you are Decorating with the Chia seeds and Freexe Dried berries – Sprinkle over at this stage. No need to be neat here

Step 7

Place in the freezer – They will take at least one hour to completely set

Step 7

To serve – Pop one out of the mould and gove to your Pooch. Willow likes to leave them to melt a little so I pop it in her bowl for her
