Serena offered to share one of her recipes with Daily Dog Tag readers.   I think these Mutt Mojitos are perfect for this time of year.  Around here, anyone who has  a garden is usually overloaded with zucchini.


Mutt Mojito: Tasty DIY Dog Treats from Pretty Fluffy

MUTT MOJITO

4 Cups Zucchini

2 Cups Peas (Fresh or Frozen)

A few leaves of Fresh Mint

  1. Wash zucchini under cold running water and roughly slice into small pieces, ensuring to cut off and discard the ends. Finely chop mint leaves.
  2. Place zucchini and peas in a steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam for 10-15 minutes or until softened.
  3. Allow to cool, then add zucchini, peas, mint and around ¼ cup of boiled water to blender and puree until smooth. Add in small amounts of boiled water as required to achieve your desired consistency.
  4. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or until frozen through.
  5. When frozen, remove from ice cube trays and store in labeled Ziploc bags in freezer.

Makes approximately 20 treat cubes.

HANDY HINT: This treat works double duty – great as a refresher in summer, but also wins warmed up and added to your dog’s meal in cooler months.

Important Note: When serving treats, your dog’s health and safety is always the top priority. If your dog tends to ‘gulp’ down treats without licking or chewing them, it is safer to serve frozen treats stuffed into a Kong which will keep your dog entertained for hours!

Nice! The photos are gorgeous and I like the idea of the mutt mojito lol. I did a recipe for a dog margarita once. Perhaps doggy cocktails are catching on!

  • I love that these are filled with healthy ingredients for our furry family members! I haven’t made dog treats before (although I cook for our dog) so this will get me going!!!

      Beth says:

      Let me know how these treats are received!

    Robin says:

    Those sound really yummy! Dogs are so lucky to get so many wonderful treats. Unfortunately, cats are stuck with a lot of the same old, same old. It works for them though!

      Beth says:

      Is that because cats are so finicky or are there more food that are dangerous for cats?

    Those look really good but I think I’d enjoy them more than Mr. N! He likes to be a carnivore.

    Marie says:

    Always looking for healthy and delicious food to make for the pup. This book and the recipe sound wonderful!

    MattieDog says:

      Beth says:

    Sometimes I wish I had a dog to cook for – even a friend’s dog! The recipe sounds delicious, and it’s really awesome that she’s created a book full of recipes that are good and healthy for dogs.

    The book looks amazing- such great photos and ideas. I will definitely make these for Kilo and I might try myself. I make similar but with chopped up carrots not mint and he loves as soup or frozen.

      Beth says:

      I bet my dogs would like that variation too!

    Maureen says:
