Pooch Smoothies

Just HAVE to share this recipe from Rachael Ray's magazine. She has a pet friendly recipe in the back of each issue. Natalie laid them all out on the table and picked one -- thank heavens it was not only the only recipe that I had all the ingredients for but it was also the fastest to make. She specializes in recipes that the humans can eat too so we whipped up a double batch for everyone to enjoy.

Pet Day featured:

new bedding for the Guinea Pig (I LOVE Planetwise Cozy 'n Fresh Natural Pine Bedding -- compostable/biodegradable/ flushable, stays dry no matter what, smells great no matter what and I only have to change it every few weeks -- $13.99 for a 20 lb bag lasts me 2 months)

fresh food and water for the GP

a new chew toy for same

fresh food and water for the parakeet

a string of Cheerios (lovingly strung by Rebecca) for her cage

a bath for Toby

heartworm medicine and Frontline for Toby

and Toby smoothies!!!!

Power Pooch Smoothies

8 oz plain yogurt

1 cup blackberries or raspberries or 5 large, hulled strawberries

1 mango, sliced

1 very ripe banana

1 tablespoon honey

1 cup ice water*

Process all the ingredients in a blender at high speed until smooth. Pour pooch smoothies into small bowls and freeze. Remove from the freezer, set on the floor, and let your pooch lick the treat.

* We used regular water since our raspberries, mango and banana were all frozen.
