 Summer Cooler Dog Smoothie Recipes

This Article is NOT from me. It’s from one of the many newsletters I enjoy.  Hope you enjoy!

The dog days are upon us with sweltering temperatures and sweat glands operating at peak efficiency. Fido will appreciate cooling off with these dog-safe smoothie recipes as he lounges in the kiddy pool.

If you’re feeling a sense of culinary adventure and would like to whip up your own treat, know that not all people food is good for pets. A good website to consult for ingredients is Trupanion’s Fruits and Veggies for Pets. Also make a point to evenly balance the fruit to veggie ratio to avoid giving your pooch too big of a sugar rush at one time. If your pup is diabetic, consider adding no more than ½ cup fruit with the rest veggies to your smoothie. One more note: All ingredients should be well chilled before frapping in the blender.

Sunset Cooler Recipe

This recipe gets its name from its orange color resembling the sunset.

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

¼ cup each:

Cooked, chilled carrots

Chopped cantaloupe, de-seeded

2 or 3 sections of an orange, peeled and de-seeded (eat the rest yourself!)

Tropical Twist Recipe 

Send your pooch on a virtual vacation to the tropics with these tropical ingredients.

½ cup cooked and chilled rice

Mango, peeled and cubed

Pineapple, peeled and cubed

Transparent Chiller 

Fool Fido with a smoothie that looks like water.

½ cup de-seeded, peeled, diced yellow squash

¼ cup each:

De-seeded, peeled apple

De-seeded, peeled pear

De-seeded, peeled cucumber

It’s okay if you decide to sneak a taste of your own. These recipes are also people-friendly. Bon(e) appétit!

Directions

To create each of these treats, just throw the ingredients into a blender. Mixtures can also be frozen in ice cube trays for small frosty treats.
