Doggy Kisses – Valentine’s Day Dog Treat Recipe
February 5 | 1 Comment
It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which means doggy treats for your pooch. What better way to make it fun than by making your very own healthy treat for your furry Valentine? Sprialina Kisses are easy to make and a great way to show your love. As an added bonus this dog treat recipe also helps to counteract nasty doggie breath. Dr. Ernie Ward provides the recipe.
These no-bake treats feature spirulina, a protein-packed blue-green algae that contains an incredible concentration of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Because it is a great source of chlorophyll, it can also help freshen your pet’s breath and keep him healthy all year long. It’s smooch time, if you ask me.
1 ripe mashed banana
1 1/2 Tablespoons spirulina
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon coconut oil – extra virgin unrefined
2 Tablespoons freshly ground flax seeds
1 Tablespoon ground sesame or pumpkin seeds
To make this recipe:
Combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Roll out a teaspoon of the dough into a ball and shape like a “kiss.” (If your dog prefers a crunchy treat, bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.) Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Makes up to 24 healthy kisses. 25 calories per serving (1 treat).
Remember to keep treats to less than 10% of your pet’s daily caloric intake to maintain a healthy diet.
