Who doesn’t like smoothies? From smoothie shops to ice cream parlors, this fruity blended drink can be found almost anywhere. Made to order or pre-blended smoothies can be had anytime, day or night.
Let’s face it – humans love their smoothies! In addition to humans, we have a feeling that after trying the following recipe, you’ll find that your dog loves smoothies too.
Carrot and Berry Smoothie
This carrot and berry canine smoothie recipe is flexible. You can pretty much guesstimate how much of the ingredients you want to place in your blender. Just like NuVet supplements, this recipe is chock full of great stuff for your canine companion!
If you are aware of any sensitivities your dog may have then avoid that ingredient or substitute it for something else that you know your dog likes. For example, you could pick blueberries instead of strawberries or cucumber instead of carrot.
This recipe was selected because it contains ingredients that are nutritious, dog friendly and tasty. For example, yogurt is rich in calcium. Honey aids in digestion and is great for boosting energy. Bananas are high in potassium and other nutrients, while strawberries contain, fiber, vitamins C, K, B6 and B1.
Carrots on the other hand are high in a myriad of vitamins, aid in digestion, promote a healthy coat and are even good for your dog’s breath. Just like with NuVet Plus, you can be sure that your pup is receiving great nutrition with this fruity treat.
What You Will Need:
- Yogurt – Avoid artificially sweetened yogurts as these may contain ingredients that are harmful to dogs.
- Honey – Avoid giving to puppies and do not include more than one teaspoon per day.
Step 1 – Add 1 small container of yogurt, ½ teaspoon of honey, 1 chopped banana, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 diced medium carrot, and 1 8oz cup of water to a blender.
Step 2 – Blend until ingredients are smooth.
Note: carrots may not blend completely, tiny chunks are fine and your dog will probably like them! We feel pretty confident that next to your pup’s NuVet Plus supplements, this smoothie is going to be something Fido really enjoys eating.
You can easily serve Fido his smoothie by pouring the finished product into an ice cube tray and freezing it, or if you prefer, you can make the smoothie into popsicles for your dog. Consider using a rawhide chew or other chew toy as the popsicle stick.
