New Peanut Butter & Banana Pops
So summer isn't upon us yet, and you may have more rain puddles than sun filled days, but I couldn't help but get excited for warmer days ahead with this months featured dog treat recipe.
If your dog is like most I've met, peanut butter is in the top 5 of all time favorite flavors. If that describes your dog, then she'll love these peanut butter and banana pops.
Let's Go! Peanut Butter & Chia Seed Pops are perfect for a day full of activity. The peanut butter and banana combination is a flavor that most dogs will enjoy, so feel free to make it without the chia seeds. However, the addition of the chia seed is one your dogs body will appreciate. This super-food is high in fiber, has more calcium than milk and more than 3X the omega-3 fatty acid as salmon. Plus it is virtually tasteless, so your dog won't even know it's there.
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons ripe mashed banana
- In a glass measuring cup with a spout, stir together the chia seeds and water.
- Let this mixture sit for at least 15 minutes.
- Thoroughly mash the banana in a small bowl.
- Place the peanut butter in the bowl with the banana and microwave them for
about 10 seconds. This helps the peanut butter to become soft.
- Then stir together the peanut butter and banana until combined.
- Using a rubber spatula, scoop this mixture into the chia seed and water.
- With a small whisk, or a fork, briskly stir together the ingredients in the measuring cup.
- Next, evenly pour the thick mixture into each cup of the brownie pop silicone mold.
- Place the silicone mold on a small baking sheet for stability, and place in the freezer.
- Freeze for about 3 to 4 hours, or until completely frozen.
- Let the pops sit out for about 5 minutes and then turn the mold upside down and gently push out the pops.
Store them in the freezer for no longer than 6 months.
Tips & Techniques:
- Peanut Butter - You can easily substitute almond butter, soy butter or even decadent cashew butter in these frozen pops.
- Silicone Brownie Mold -
Don't have a brownie mold or any other shapes of silicone molds? No need to fret. Just pour the mixture into an ice cube tray for square pops.
May Dog Events
May - Pet Cancer Awareness Month. The last thing you want to hear is that a loved one has cancer. This includes all of your family, two and four legged. But, there is good news. Every day more research is being done to help those diagnosed with a form of cancer.
Symptoms to be aware of in your dog (or cat):
Also the Animal Cancer Foundation is doing a lot for comparative oncology. Research that is done for pets can often be used for humans. One of their goals is to unite pet and human research for a cure.
