Weekly Drool Recipe: Healthy Springtime Doggy Snack

Happy Spring to you and your dog(s)! We are sharing some dog recipe goodness from Kirby the Dorkie in this week’s Spring-themed Drool Recipe: Roasted Baby Carrots. After all, what symbolizes spring and promotes good eyesight better than carrots?!

These orange veggies are chock-full of beta-carotene and Vitamin A. While raw carrots are a healthy, crunchy treat excellent for dental cleaning, they can’t be broken down fully in your dogs’ digestive tracts. In other words, your dog won’t absorb all of the carrots’ nutrients. That’s why cooked carrots are vitamin-rich snack for Fido!

This recipe is super-easy: both on your time and wallet. Even better, even the most novice in the kitchen can master it!

 Ingredients

- 1 bag baby carrots

- 1/4 cup light olive oil

- Pinch sea salt

- Pinch cayenne pepper  

 Preparation Instructions

1. Cut any large carrots in half lengthwise and place all the carrots in bowl.

2. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Using your hand, toss until the carrots are completely coated.

4. Spread out on a foil lined jelly roll pan or shallow baking dish.

Thanks to Kirby the Dorkie and Mom, Debby, for sharing this fun and easy recipe! Carrots have wonderful health benefits for both you and your dog!

Bone appetit!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Puppermints for St Patty’s via My Dog’s Breakfast

 

St Patty’s is coming soon, and we thought what better way to celebrate than with a holiday-themed recipe for pups? The green color from this recipe is not from artificial dyes but rather from good-for-you kale, mint and parsley. Do we smell fresher breath already? 

We love that this recipe from My Dog’s Breakfast has both a wheat and gluten-free recipe for dogs who have sensitive stomachs or dietary restrictions. Check out the full recipe below.

 Ingredients: Gluten free Puppermints

2 1/2 cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 cup parsley
1 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1TSP salt

 

Ingredients: Wheat Puppermints
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup parsley
1/2 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1 tsp salt

Directions

Whiz your parsley, mint, kale and water in your blender or whatever you have that will do the trick. Add to large mixing bowl. Add the canola oil, honey, salt and stir. Then slowly add the dry ingredients and mix together, then knead a little bit until dough ball forms. Some flour mixtures make this a bit more crumbly, just add small amounts of water until you’re happy with the texture. This should be a moist dough so you will need to sprinkle a good amount of gf flour to roll out. Roll out dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thickness. I used a (proper measuring) teaspoon to make them round. After you make the cut out, you can just smoosh them into the teaspoon if you want make them rounder on the top (like you see in the picture).

Bake at 250 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I like to cook them at a low temp because I find that natural colours stay stronger this way.

Let us know if you make these lucky-green dog treats!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Coconut Butter via Kirby the Dorkie

Our good friend Kirby the Dorkie has come up with a great way to add exotic flavor to your dog’s meal that also packs a wallop of health benefits! Today Best Bully Sticks shares Kirby’s recipe for Coconut Butter! Check out the full recipe below.

Wondering what the difference is between coconut oil and coconut butter? Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the coconut where coconut butter is made from raw dried shredded coconut. When you puree the shredded coconut the coconut oil and coconut meat mix together and turn into a butter spread.

To make your own use unsweetened, dried coconut, either shredded or flakes, which turn into a somewhat smooth butter. Do not use desiccated, sweetened, reduced fat or fresh coconut. This does require a powerful food processor or blender to make.

So what can you do with coconut butter? Spoon coconut butter straight from the jar and mix in the meal time kibble, add it to baked treats, melt and pour over sweet potatoes or baked carrots, freeze for pupsicles, the list is endless. Coconut butter isn’t just for dogs either!  Humans can use it as a coffee creamer, a spread for toast, in curry dishes, and smoothies to name a few.

Try making different flavored coconut butters: mix 1 tablespoon carob powder with 1/4 cup coconut butter, 1 tablespoon peppermint oil with 1/4 cup coconut butter, or 1 tablespoon cinnamon with 1/4 cup coconut butter.

Prep Time: 15 – 20 minutes    Cook Time: None    Yields:  1 cup

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened coconut, shredded or flakes read more…
