It’s time for some more frozen dog treats; this time a fruit bonanza frosty. As with all our frosty recipes they are simple and quick to make and full of yummy goodness for not only dogs but humans too.
In moderation pears are great for dogs; as a healthy snack they are full of vitamins. Such as; Vitamin C & Vitamin A as well as being packed with fibre. Similarly to apples pears seeds contain cyanide so they must not be eaten.
A fantastic treat for dogs which can even be used as a training treat if your dog will perform for them. They are low in calories and high in vitamins and antioxidants. These specific antioxidants have been proven to fight free radicals, which are known to be responsible for cellular and molecular damage in dogs and humans.
Like blueberries they are packed with natural antioxidants however; your dog may not choose to eat them. This makes them great for blending for Frosties. They also contain plenty of fiber and vitamins, too.
Once the core and seeds have been removed, apples are a great fruit for dogs. The seeds naturally contain cyanide so if built up will be toxic. Apples are low in protein and fat but high in fibre which is great for digestion; giving the gut a workout in the process. It is also believed that Apples are packed full of antioxidants and alongside the Vitamin C content are great for joints.
Please remember that fruit is high in natural sugar and should be fed in moderation
Now comes the fun stuff
- Prepare your fruit by ensuring all apples and pears are cored and pealed. Chop the fruit into small pieces; making it easier for the blender.
- Add the fruit into the blender alongside the yogurt to taste.
- Blend the fruit and yogurt together until you have the desired thickness
- Pour into your moulds
- Freeze for around 2 hours
And it’s as simple as that! Now sit back and enjoy some fruit bonanzas with your canine friends. If you want to see more tasty frozen treats; check out Strawberry & Blueberry Frosties or Pina Colada FroYo.
