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:


Ingredients:


5-6 oz of plain, unsweetened greek yogurt

3/4 cup of frozen mango

1 banana

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!



Directions:


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!
