Frozen Fun For Fido!Posted: June 6, 2010
Hello Summer Adventurers- (well, depending on which part of the world you live in)
For those in So Cal -it’s a warm one today! After an active morning of hitting the dog park & walk before it reached in the 80 degree temps…We’re doing our best to beat the heat by scheduling our physicaly activities when it’s not as hot! Please see “hot-hot-hot” on some tips for keeping your favorite doggy a cool pup instead of a hot dog! So after our activities, the pooches convinced me to make a little frozen fun that’s lick-o-licious!!
Check out what’s on the doggy soft serve menu:
2 3/4 cups frozen strawberries
1 Cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender. Be sure to cover it! Blend ingredients until smooth. You may need to stop the blender & stir it so all of the strawberries are blended.
Pour soft strawberry mixture into a freezer safe container. I used 1/2 cup GLAD containers with lids, which worked out perfect! Freeze these little babies until firm or a little more firm than soft serve. If firm when you remove it the freezer, give a few minutes to thaw slightly, the consistency of soft serve and watch your dogs go ga-ga!
RESULTS: Oh MY! This will DEFINITELY be a frequent summer treat! This recipe received the “all-4-paws” up rating from my research team, along with 2 hands up from me! It’s absolutely LICK-O-LICIOUS!!! I dare you NOT to like this frozen treat. If you can press a button .. you can make this treat! It’s just so darn easy.
All three of my dogs took turns sharing one serving, but they wanted more so they shared another one! Although I’m a huge ice cream lover, this will definitely save me on the calories and the fat! Once again, the doggies end up giving me that look of “Uh, hey Pop — why are you eating OUR treats .. AGAIN???”
Let me know what you think & how yummy it is by leaving me a comment! Happy Blending & stay cool!
