Does your pup enjoy eating their green veggies? If they do, then they’re truly one of the good boys/girls! I do NOT like eating them, they’re just plain and well… they haven’t got anything on good ol’ carrots let’s face it. 😋
I recently switched to having homemade cooked food of an evening (best thing ever), so I’ve been eating a lot more vegetables and eating my greens is important to help me get nutrients and vitamins.
I have a confession for you though but please don’t tell my mum, it’ll be our little secret🤫. I eat everything in my bowl, BUT I’ll wait for mum to leave the room and spit the greens back out into the bowl. Peanuts helps me out and hoovers them up before mum comes back. Teamwork is dreamwork 😉
Okay! I know! Eating veggies is important and I must eat them. So, I thought that since my sister and I really enjoyed my carrot puree, why not give it a go with green veggies. These frozen greens bone treats are super easy and quick to make, they’re also full of calcium, vitamins and iron. Just boil frozen spinach, green beans and peas, drain, and blitz in a food processor until smooth. Then, spoon the puree into silicone moulds or onto a baking tray lined with a baking sheet and freeze for 2-4 hours.
These treats are pawfect for a cool treat on a summer’s day or I like to microwave a couple bones and stir into my dinner. They’re scrumptious AND yes, I am now eating my greens like a good boy! Where’s my gold star sticker?
