Our summer series continues today with fruity recipe for Fido. Part 3 of our Foods to Cool your Canine series – Nana Nibblers. This recipe uses 4 cooling ingredients: banana, yogurt, orange, and apple. They can be served fresh or as a frozen treat.
We begin this recipe with the following ingredients:
2 bananas, peeled and sliced into bite size pieces
2-3 oz. plain vanilla yogurt
1 apple, washed, and cored
Zest some of the peel of the orange to add some extra flavor to these treats by scraping the unpeeled orange against a cheese grater. Set aside. We leave the peel on the apple to provide some color to our “dipping sauce”. Place the apple pieces along with the peeled orange in your food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into a bowl and stir in the yogurt. Dip the banana pieces into the yogurt mixture and place on a plate. Sprinkle with the orange zest. Serve fresh or freeze and to your pup’s meals or as a fun, frozen treat!
