Weekly Drool Recipe: Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness via Wayward Dogs

As Cystal of “Wayward Dogs” puts it, her Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness dog treat recipe is for “master estimators.” You won’t find any exact measurements here, but you will a tasty, all-natural treat that will cool off your dog and tickle his taste buds! (We like Crystals humor, so we included her post in its entirety!) Thanks for sharing this great recipe and your photos, Crystal!

Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness

Ingredients

1. What’s left of last year’s sweet potato harvest. Or, as many sweet potatoes as you feel like cleaning, chopping up, boiling and pureeing in the blender – minus the amount of mash you decide at the last minute to save for yourself. Because mashed sweet potatoes are so awesome to eat they require no condiments (although a dash of salt and butter can’t hurt).

2. Peanut butter. As much as you feel like spooning into the pureed sweet potatoes, but probably not an equal amount or the batter will get so voluminous that you’ll be at this all day.

3. Oats – regular or the instant kind. Really, the dogs won’t know the difference.

4. Cinnamon. Put the container on the sprinkle – not the dump – setting, and use your judgment.

5. Dried blueberries. For topping. read more…

1/2 cup to a cup of plain yogurt

1/2 cup to a cup strawberries (I used frozen)

1/2 cup to a cup blueberries (I used frozen)

Directions

1. Thaw your berries if you’re using frozen ones.

2. Puree the berries with a stick blender or blender, or even your fork and some effort will do it if they’re from frozen, because they’re so soft.

3. Layer them into your mold. I used a silicone bone mold, you could even use muffin tins. Fill each slot 1/3 full with strawberry puree. Freeze for an hour. Add yogurt to make it 2/3 full. Freeze for an hour. Scrape off any excess white yogurt from sides so you will be able to see all three layers. Fill to top with blueberries and freeze for at least five hours.

Weekly Drool Recipe: Grain & Gluten-Free Tomato & Spinach Dog Treats via DoggyDessertChef

There is nothing tastier than garden fresh veggies! Give your dog this same taste with today’s BestBullySticks Weekly Drool Recipe from DoggyDessertChef, Grain & Gluten-Free Tomato & Spinach Dog Treats! Tomato (just the red parts!) and spinach both give your dog lots of great vitamins and minerals like Vitamins A, B, C, K and lots of great fiber, beta carotene and lycopene! Because these treats are gluten and grain-free, you can feel 100% guilt-free in treating your dog to this scrumptious snack!

Ingredients

  • 1 (6 ounce can) Tomato Paste (Make sure that the only ingredient in your tomato paste is tomatoes. A lot of brands add garlic and other spices for taste so make sure to avoid those.)
  • 1 cup frozen Spinach, thawed
  • pinch Parsley
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheese
  • 1 cup Potato Flour

 Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients one at a time, kneading well after each addition.

3. Knead dough into several balls and roll onto a floured surface 1/2 inch thick. Dough is very thick and a little difficult to roll.

4. Cut with the cookie cutter of your choice.

5. Place on your prepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool and refrigerate.

Makes 2 to 3 dozen rounds.

Recipe Note: These dog treats are meant for occasional snacking. The fruit (only the red part) of tomatoes is perfectly safe for dogs, but avoid feeding any green portion of a tomato plant as it is toxic to dogs. Dogs with sensitive stomachs may be more affected by tomatoes, so feed sparingly.

Weekly Drool Recipe: Frosty Yogurt Berries Bone Parfait

With the weather heating up, you and your dog are likely to need more ways to cool down. This week, we are excited to share a refreshing and healthy dog treat recipe from Sugar the Golden Retriever! Sugar and Mom, Rosalyn, were kind enough to let us share their Frosty Yogurt Berries Bone Parfait dog treat recipe! We know your dog will enjoy the frozen, tart berries and yogurt as their new favorite way to cool down this summer.

Ingredients

  • ~1 tablespoon of Greek Yogurt
  • ~1 tablespoon of Plain Yogurt
  • ~2 teaspoon of fresh blackberries juice (=3 pieces of blackberries)
  • 4 x-small pieces of strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon of homemade toasted coconut honey oats (using old fashion oats, coconut oil and honey)

Directions

Use a Bone cookie cutter as a mold. Place it on a flat surface. We used a clear plate.

1. Pour into the mold ~ 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt.* Freeze it for about an hour.

*This is the first time we used Greek yogurt for frosty paw recipe. It does not freeze well unlike the regular plain yogurt.*

2. Pour ~2  teaspoons of the fresh blackberries juice. Smashed blackberries can be added too. Freeze it for about 20 to 30 minutes.

3. Place little pieces of strawberries.

4. Pour ~1 tablespoon of plain yogurt. Freeze it for 20 minutes.

5. Place the tasted oats on top. Freeze it for another 10-15 minutes.

It was my treat for the day (whole day). Mom believes in portion control. She cut it into four pieces. I had one piece for breakfast, mid morning snack, after nap snack and evening meal dessert. It was DELISH! TASTY! The little pieces of strawberries inside and toasted oats were delightful. Using Greek yogurt as the first layer gave a thicker texture  but it tasted GOOD!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Very Berry Doggy Granola Bars via 3M Bakery

BestBullySticks Weekly Drool Recipe is from Jude and the 3M’s (aka 3M Bakery). No, they’re not a singing group, but a health conscious doggy mom and her three pups, Mac, Maesie and Matilda. She shared an amazing wheat-free and gluten-free dog treat recipe with us and we of course wanted to share it with you. Chock-full of healthy ingredients, this great recipe is sure to become a new treat favorite in your house. Jude also gives these great explanations of the great ingredients in her treats!

Coconut contains No Trans-Fats, is Gluten-Free, Non-Toxic, Hypoallergenic, and also contains Antibacterial, Antiviral, Antifungal, and Anti-parasitic healing properties.

Cranberries contain a unique array of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients and research is continuing into what appears to be excellent anti-cancer properties. They are well known in protecting against Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) in your pet.

Cherries provide beneficial properties for a range of inflammatory-related conditions in your pet. A recent study by University of Michigan researchers revealed a cherry-enriched diet reduced inflammation markers in animals by up to 50 per cent.

Pumpkin seeds are known to reduce inflammation associated with arthritis without the side effects of using anti-inflammatory drugs. They are also a natural treatment for tapeworms and other parasites.

Sunflower seeds are incredibly rich sources of many essential minerals. Calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper. Many of these minerals have a vital role in bone mineralization, red blood cell production, enzyme synthesis, as well as regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle activities.

Sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies in animals. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage.

Maple syrup is an antioxidant powerhouse. Researchers at the University of Rhode Island found that maple syrup is filled with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that may help prevent several chronic and inflammatory diseases like diabetes and cancer. It settles digestion issues and helps with muscle recovery as it is an excellent source of manganese, which helps repair muscle and cell damage; it also keeps bones strong and blood sugar levels normal. read more…
