Looking for something different to do this weekend at home in Brightwood? Why not get creative in the kitchen and whip up some treats for your four-legged friend that will keep them happy for hours. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite recipes for you to try.
Sweet Potato Pupper Fries
We’re not the only ones who need our daily serve of 2 and 5, it’s important for our canine pals to get their plant-based nutrients too. Not all dogs like veggies but sweet potato seems to have emerged as a winner and we’re sure they’ll love this easy treat! These little morsels are human friendly too meaning you can enjoy a treat along with your four-legged friend. Click here for the recipe from Beagles and Bargains.
Peanut Butter Pupsicles
A perfect cooling treat for summer days, these doggy friendly ice creams are simple to make and can be kept in the freezer to cool off with this summer. Dogs can be sensitive to lactose, so be sure to serve in moderation.
YOU WILL NEED
100g sugarless unsalted peanut butter
300g organic low fat, plain Greek yoghurt
200ml of water
- Line a 12-hole muffin tray with cupcake papers
- Melt the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl
- Add the melted peanut butter to water and yoghurt, stirring to combine
- Pour the mixture into the lined muffin tray
- Pop them into the freezer
Remove the cupcake paper and give to your dog for a nice cool off.
Super Salmon Snacks
Something a little fancier for your furry friend, salmon is an excellent source of quality protein, vitamins and minerals which are perfect to help keep your pup in good health.
YOU WILL NEED
280g canned salmon, undrained
1 free range egg, beaten
240g whole wheat flour
- Preheat oven to 180 Celsius
- Empty the canned salmon, including liquid, into a food processor and blitz
- In a bowl, combine blitzed salmon, egg and flour until you get a dough. If the dough is too dry, add a little water and similarly a little more flour if it is too moist
- Roll out dough on a surface until about ¼ inch thick. Using a 3-4 inch cookie cutter in the shape of your choice, cut out the treats
- Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper and place the treats on the tray before popping into the oven for about 20 mins until they are slightly brown and crunchy
Cool them off before storing in a jar for the dog to enjoy.
3 Ingredient Vegan Cookies
Both vegan and human friendly, these little biscuits are a winner and a nice way for you to share an afternoon snack with your pup. They only require 3 ingredients and will be ready in less than an hour! Click here for the recipe from The Plant Philosophy.
Just a few ingredients go a long way for these treats and they’re freezable so you can make them in bulk and store away for rewarding good boys and girls!
YOU WILL NEED
Silicone tray mould in shape of choice
1 cup cooked chicken, finely diced
½ cup rice, cooked and mashed
3 tablespoon rice flour
1 tablespoon parsley
- Preheat oven to 175 Celsius
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well
- Spoon mixture into silicone moulds
- Put in the oven for between 20-30 minutes until the tops are golden brown
- Allow to cool before removing from moulds
- These can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months
