Weekly Drool Recipe: Homemade Frozen Pupsicle Treats

It’s May and that means warmer temperatures and the need to cool down! Best Bully Sticks wants to share with you doggy owners out there a great and tasty way to not only cool down your dog, but treat him as well. This week we’re making Homemade Frozen Pupsicle Treats! We’re going to give you 2 recipe variants as well as 2 different takes on the creating the pupsicle form! Enjoy!

Apple Honey Pupsicles

Ingredients
2 containers (6 oz. each) plain yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/3 cup regular applesauce (or a 4 oz. snack size portion)

Directions
Stir together all ingredients in a mixing bowl with a spoon until well combined. 

Peanut Butter Banana Pupsicles

Ingredients
32 oz. plain yogurt
1 mashed ripe banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey

Directions
Mix ingredients in a mixer or blender. 

Pupsicle Formation & MORE variations!

These treats are the most versatile treats out there because you can do so much with them! The neatest ways we’ve seen to form the pusicles are:

1. In an ice-cube tray or egg carton! Pour your frozen treat mixture directly into your unused ice-cube tray or egg carton. This will allow you to take these frozen bits out for your pup as you please! This is especially great for small dogs! Pretty ingenious, huh?

2. In plastic cups! Pouring your mixture into plastic cups about half-way will provide the same ease of serving, but will be better for a bigger dog!

Loosening the frozen treats from the tray/carton/cup is easy. Just pour a little warm water over the bottom of the container!

At this point, you’re free to experiment! These treats are so versatile! For instance, you can substitute an large jar of baby food for the banana in the Peanut Butter Banana Pupsicle recipe. A large jar of baby food is the same volume as a banana, so you can sub any flavor that your dog likes. Broth, fruit puree and different flavored yogurts are great subs!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Chock Full Of Cheese Cookies!

Best Bully Sticks says, “Pass The Cheese, Please!” with these yummy, sure-to-please cheese cookies for your dog. We like to call them Chock Full Of Cheese Cookies, and they really are just that. These treats have parmesan and cheddar cheese baked into a cookie. There’s even a cream cheese and peanut butter filling for the inside if that’s not enough!

Cheese is loaded with protein and calcium, both of which are great for your dog. However, cheese can also be very rich. We recommend giving these to a very active dog or limiting the intake of these treats. Also, if your dog has trouble processing dairy, you can substitute cheese ingredients with almond, soy or tofu cheese. Best Bully Sticks hopes your pooch enjoys these hearty snacks!

Cookie Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tablespoon Culinary Lavender

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

Weekly Drool Recipe: Boo-sotto, Risotto Dinner For Your Pooch & You

Best Bully Sticks brings something special to the table this week: Boo-sotto, a risotto dinner for your pooch.  Boo-sotto is a recipe from Rachael Ray, who created this tasty dish for her aging dog, Boo.

As Boo got older, she needed a careful balance of meat and carbs; lean protein and a large amount of carbs.”

Rachael and her mom would make this for Boo and even enjoy some themselves! Your pup doesn’t have to be the refined type to enjoy this fancy dinner and neither do you. This meal would be great for your dog’s birthday, adoption anniversary or a holiday meal. And as always, check with your vet about which foods are appropriate for you to share with your pet. read more…
