Summer is upon us! The heat has descended and our pups are looking for the shade or a cool spot with a water bowl. We’re launching a new series this week that shares 5 new recipes using naturally cooling foods. This means these ingredients will cool your pup from the inside out. What a great way to reward your dog with a tasty treat and help them beat the heat too!!
First up in this series is Berry Bonbons. This recipe uses 4 cooling ingredients: strawberries, banana, yogurt, and flax seed. It’s very inexpensive to make as most berries are in season now. They can be served fresh or frozen.
We begin this recipe with the following ingredients:
1 lbs. fresh strawberries, washed, and cored removed
1 fresh banana, sliced
2-3 oz. plain vanilla yogurt
2-3 tsp. ground flax seed
We then puree the banana and yogurt together to create a sauce. Spoon just enough to fill the strawberry. Top with a light sprinkle of the ground flax seed. Serve.
