Summer Smoothies for You AND Your Pooch to Enjoy!
The temperature is slowly rising and my go-to snack on a warm day is a sweet, cool, and healthy smoothie. But being the dog-obsessed person I am, I am always thinking of ways to include my dog in my day-to-day activities. So I came up with a healthy and DELICIOUS dog safe and dog approved fruit smoothie for you to try out this summer:
5-6 oz of plain, unsweetened greek yogurt
3/4 cup of frozen mango
4 large strawberries
1 tablespoon of honey
Ice water as needed
Note: feel free to adjust the quantities of each to you and your dogs liking!
Step 1: Measure out all of your ingredients and pour them all into a blender.
Step 2: Blend until smooth.
--> While you wait for your smoothie to blend, take a look at all the benefits your dog gets from this tasty treat:
Greek yogurt provides probiotics which are great for gut health
Mango provides fiber and vitamins A, B6, C, and E
Banana provides potassium, vitamin C, and biotin
Strawberries contain lots of antioxidants and an enzyme called malic acid, which can help whiten teeth
Honey reduces inflammation, alleviates seasonal allergies, and boosts energy
Step 3: Now that your smoothie is blended, pour into a cup for yourself and a small bowl for your dog.
Step 4: Enjoy while cold
Optional: You can also pour the smoothie into an ice cube tray and place in the freezer overnight for a frozen snack for your dog later on!
I hope you and your dog enjoy!
