Better (And Healthier) Than A Raw Hide!

This has to be my favorite all time doggie treat...pacifier...babysitter.  And the best part is that it's super easy to make!  Actually, the best part is that it's extremely healthy...and yummy.  You can use the same ingredients I show here, or you can be creative and edit the recipe with your pet's favorite delicacies.  In this particular recipe I use Greek vanilla yogurt, sliced ripe bananas, natural creamy peanut butter and carob chips.  You can use Kongs or any stuff-able food dispenser.


Step 1 - Pour yogurt into a large bowl and mix with peanut butter (to taste).  I use about 1/2 cup.

Step 2 - Slice one banana and place into bowl.

Step 3 - Pour about 1/2 cup carob chips into mixture and stir.

Step 4 - Pre-cut several pieces of aluminum foil and place on counter.

Step 5 - Place the dispenser (Kong) onto the foil and fill it with your mixture using a spoon.  You can use Saran Wrap as well, but I find foil easier to use.  Just be sure that the foil is smooth wherever it touches the yogurt so it's easy to peel off later.  

Step 6 - Wrap foil around the entire toy and place in the freezer.

Step 7 - When you're ready to treat your pet, remove foil and serve over a towel or in an area that's easy to clean.  The treat isn't overly messy, but the feeding area will get a little wet.


If you're concerned about staining, avoid ingredients like blueberries.  Got a recipe you'd like to share?  We'd love for you to share it with us! Bone Appetit'!
