DOGGIE RECIPES

Sweet Potato Chews: Pictured above

Doggie Ice Cream: This is super easy and great for Summer!

Grain-Free Frozen Dog Treats: If you have fish oil, use that instead of the olive oil

PET PARENT RECIPES

Here are some of my favorite healthy sweet tooth recipes~

wdc_fudgePrimal Fudge: These are SO delicious! And also easy! We add some chopped pecans and a fresh strawberry on top also. (A lighter option you can do with this: instead of pouring in a muffin tin for fudge, dip strawberries in the freshly blended mixture and put in the fridge for chocolate dipped strawberries!)

 

4 Ingredient Chocolate Coconut Pie

This is not an exact recipe, I make this at home and don’t really measure anything…but it is a great recipe to play around with different flavors.
Banana Ice Cream: 2 ripe bananas, 1tbs vanilla extract, 3 tbs almond butter, 1 cup coconut milk (if it won’t blend, add more milk), 2-3 tbs date syrup (or honey/agave), 2-3tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (depending on how chocolatey you want it!)  Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender (should be a soft serve consistency), put in a jar (I saved used plastic ice cream pint jars), and put in the freezer (for at least 5 hours).  This is really delicious! And guilt-free 🙂
Extras: Try adding some cinnamon for a ‘mexican chocolate’ style ice cream.  OR Like nuts? After blending all ingredients, try adding some chopped pecans/walnuts/almonds. OR leave out the cocoa powder and add some strawberries.

Craving a salty treat?  Try one of these healthy (and easy!) options instead:

Kale Chips: These are SO easy, and all you need is kale, olive oil and salt

Crispy Garbonzo Beans: This recipe has some spices, but I normally season with salt, paprika and chipotle chile powder. YUM, this is a great alternative when you’re craving something like popcorn. And also a good one to play around with different seasonings/flavors.
