Summer is an ideal time for culinary delicacies because the markets are full of healthy and tasty fruits and vegetables. Suggestions are coming, give it a try, and let us know your impressions!
Apples, blueberries, boiled eggs, carrots, sweet potatoes, Greek yogurt… These are all foods that our dogs are allowed to eat, so roll up your sleeves and make them treats that will make them happy, make their palates and stomachs happy and cool them down during these hot days.
Prizes with apple and carrot
Ingredients: one and a half cups of oatmeal, half a cup of apple sauce (which you made yourself, without additives, just by cooking), a quarter cup of grated carrot, yogurt, two tablespoons of whose seeds, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.
Preparation: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, and put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix them well with a food processor or mixer until the mixture is compact. Place the baking paper in the baking tray and the silicone cookie cutters on the baking tray. Fill each mold with the mixture and bake for about 45 minutes. If your dog likes crispy rewards, bake them for an additional 30 minutes at a lower temperature.
Muffins with spinach and eggs
Ingredients: a cup of chopped spinach (fresh or frozen), seven larger eggs (scrambled), a third of a cup of milk with the lowest percentage of milk fat, half a cup of cheddar or cheese of your choice (which your dog likes to eat), half a fresh red pepper (chopped) . You can also add zucchini, broccoli, kale… everything your dog likes to eat.
Preparation: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, lightly oil the muffin tin with olive oil and fill it to the depth. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until you see that they have risen and that the eggs have been heat-treated. When cool, serve them to the dog.
Ingredients: eight carrots (washed and peeled), two tablespoons of peanut butter, one and a half cups of oatmeal. Optional – you can add a spoonful of honey.
Preparation: Chop the carrot and cook over low heat. When it softens, mash it with a fork or make a puree in a blender. Save the water in which it was boiled. Add peanut butter and honey, then mix them with the carrot. While mixing or stirring the mixture, add a little flour and water in which the carrots were cooked until you get a dough-like mixture. Put it in a bowl and cover with foil and let it stand for at least an hour. Divide the dough into three equal parts, and keep it in the fridge for a while (for 30 minutes), because that way it won’t stick. Roll out the dough on the work surface and separate the bites about two centimetres thick with a mold or your hands. Put the baking paper in a baking tray, arrange the snacks and bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 180 degrees. From this amount you can make about 100 bites.
For fresh breath , Frozen dessert with mint
Greek yogurt contains probiotics, mint refreshes the breath, and honey is full of antimicrobial ingredients – so the dog gets a good, cooling treat.
140 g of Greek yogurt
¼ cups of fresh mint
¼ cups of honey
Preparation: Mix well all the ingredients in a blender. Pour the mixture into silicone molds to approximately ¾ depth. Leave them in the freezer for about two hours or until they are completely frozen. You can give this treat to your dog for fresh breath, but also as a great treat to cool off during hot days. Watch out for dogs that automatically swallow food – in that case, such treats should be avoided.
