Kidney-Friendly Pupsicles for Your Dog July 13 2020

Every day thousands of dogs are diagnosed with some form of kidney disease. With a diagnosis like this, your dog has to have a change in their daily diet, so we created this healthy, kidney-friendly, easy to make recipe for some fun "Pupsicles" for your dog to enjoy! Of course, please double check with your vet if you are unsure of any of these ingredients for your specific dog. And yes, these are yummy enough for all dogs to enjoy on a hot day so feel free to share with your other doggie friends!



4 Baby Carrots

1/2 Apple cut into chunks

1/2 cup Blueberries

4.5 oz Plain Yogurt (full fat is best for dogs with kidney issues)   



Add all the ingredients to a blender. Add a little fresh water at a time and blend until consistency is smoothie like. Place your silicone molds onto a cookie sheet for easy transportation from the counter to freezer. Take your smoothie mixture and pour into silicone molds leaving a little space at the top. Once your molds are complete, then pop them in the freezer and freeze until your dog is ready to enjoy. Once ready to give, just pop the pupsicle out of the mold!

Note: There are tons of options for silicone molds out there. We used silicone cupcake liners (~3in diameter) and filled 5 of them. You can find something similar here. If you want smaller, 1 to 1 1/2in sized treats, check out these cute bone and paw print shaped ones. 


Homemade Vitamin and Protein Packed Pooch Smoothies August 01 2019

Well it is toasty out! What tastes better than a nice cold smoothie or ice cream on a hot summer day? Your dog thinks the same thing... trust us! Here is our homemade pooch smoothie recipe to whip up your dog a yummy, healthy, vitamin and protein packed snack to enjoy outside. 



5.3oz Plain Greek Yogurt

1 Banana

1/3 cup Natural Peanut Butter

1/2 cup Fresh or Frozen Blueberries

handful of ice-cubes

water to thin and blend as needed



In a blender add the plain greek yogurt, banana, peanut butter, blueberries and ice-cubes. Add water and blend to a nice, easy-to-pour consistency (add additional water as needed throughout blending to thin out smoothie for pouring). 

After you have made your smoothie, pour into silicone cupcake molds like these and put in the freezer. Your pooch smoothies will set up overnight. If you want to give them extra appeal, you can add in a treat like the picture below after a few hours in the freezer.

The silicone molds are freezer safe and will not stick to the smoothie! When you are ready to serve, peel the mold right off the smoothie and hand the yummy, cold treat to your pooch to eat! Wash the silicone mold and store until you are ready to make more.

This recipe will make ~6 large cupcake molds. Your pooch smoothies can store in the freezer for awhile so your dog can enjoy them over several weeks! Enjoy.
