Eat Your Vegetables Pupsicles

If you have a family member that has been turning up her nose at her veggies lately in favor of purely peanut butter-based meals, this is an easy way to sneak some fiber and nutrients into the diet, with just a touch of peanut butter involved so that it still counts as a “treat”.

Ingredients:

  • Plain yogurt (no flavoring or sweeteners)
  • Pureed vegetables (use your dog’s favorites)
  • Thinly sliced banana rounds
  • Peanut butter
  • Dixie cups
  • Carrot sticks, green beans, or dog treats (for the pupsicle stick)

Instructions:

  • Mix yogurt and pureed fruit/veg together.
  • Put a banana round in the bottom of each cup.
  • Put yogurt mixture into cups.
  • Put a peanut butter-smeared carrot, green bean, or dog treat in the center of each cup.
  • Put in freezer until frozen all the way through.
  • Peel off paper cup before serving.
  • Note: To make the pupsicles extra appealing, put some beef or chicken broth into the blender before you puree the vegetables. Keep in mind that if you have a dog that doesn’t routinely eat vegetables, you don’t want to overdo it – nobody wants to get up in the middle of the night for an emergency potty break!

    The use of any recipe is at your own discretion. Check with a veterinarian prior to feeding homemade food or treats if you are unsure about any recipe or if your dog has any medical conditions, special nutritional needs, or ingredient sensitivities.
