Tasty Tuesday: Frozen Yogurt Treats

 Did you know that dogs can eat yogurt?
They can! 

Yogurt is a great source of calcium and protein that your dogs will love. When choosing a yogurt, pick one that has live active bacteria and no sugars or artificial sweeteners. The active bacteria may act as probiotics and is good for your dog’s digestive system. 

This treat is great during the summertime or anytime. It is easy, quick and good for your dog. 
What more can you ask for?
Supplies:
  • Yogurt
  • Mold/Ice Cube Tray
  • Freezer
Directions:
All you do is pour the yogurt into your mold or ice cube tray and place it in the freezer until frozen.

Tasty Tuesday: Apples and Peanut Butter

Last week my sister and I enjoyed a wonderful fall drive to Jim’s Apple Farm. Every year for the last 5 years we make this annual trip to get our pumpkins. However, we always end up leaving with more than just pumpkins. 


Jim’s Apple Farm is famous for it’s largest selection of candy in Minnesota, homemade pies, pastries, caramel apples, nut rolls, ten foot long shelf of local fruit preserves, over four cooler cases holding dozens and dozens of small-brand sodas, and one whole case dedicated solely to root beer. Yep, they have the world’s largest section of pop (aka soda).  Not to mention the ceiling is lined with puzzles, from 50 pieces all the way up to 10,000 piece puzzles. Jim’s has everything you can’t find anywhere. 



Like normal we leave with a big bag filled with apples, a pie, 6 different bottles of root beer, 2 caramel apples, a nut roll, and some gourds. Not to mention our 3 pumpkins. 


When we arrived home Spencer saw the bag of fresh apples. So, I made him a treat with two of his favorite foods, apples and peanut butter. Since Spencer is a big dog he usually ends up with his own apple. So I simply cored out the middle and put peanut butter in the hole. For smaller dogs simply cut the apple into slices and spread peanut butter on them. 




Apples with the skin on are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber for you dogs. Just make sure you remove all the seeds before giving it to your dog. When we make apple pies Spencer loves eating the pealings from the apples, that way none of it goes to waste.  




This is a quick easy snack you can give to your dog anytime of the year. Most households have these two ingredients laying around already. 


Happy Fall Everyone, 
Brittany (aka Spencer’s Mom) 





Note: Supervision is occurring the entire time Spencer is eating the apple to make sure he is biting off small pieces. Spence eats his apples with elegance and grace. If you dog takes big  bites or doesn’t chew much before they swallow, giving them a whole apple is discouraged.
