Turmeric Dog Biscuit Recipe

Before we get into the health benefits of these homemade dog treats, let’s talk about how much Lola and Rio obsessed over these! I’m thrilled with the texture of these and they for sure go on my top three dog treat recipes I’ve made to date. They’re perfect for Lola because they snap easily in half and aren’t so rock hard that she just swallows them whole (yes, this is a problem around here). These treats are crisp and crunchy kind of like a graham cracker.

Okay, so turmeric. It’s kind of a buzz word for 2016 and 2017? And for good reason. Turmeric made the list in my 9 Healthy Additions to Your Dog’s Diet and I knew I had to incorporate it into a recipe!

What is turmeric? Good question, it actually comes from a root, that looks similar to ginger, imo.

Turmeric is one of the most researched plants in existence today as a powerful antioxidant. The health benefits include:

  • Anti-cancer properties
  • Protects against radiation-induced damage
  • Reduces unhealthy levels of inflammation
  • Detoxifier
  • Relieves allergies
  • Acts as a binding agent, great for treating diarrhea
  • High in fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals

In addition to turmeric powder, I also added peanut butter to help bind everything together, a combination of oat and rice flour, and flax seed…because why not!?

It’s official. My dogs are spoiled. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

This recipe can be made with only dirtying ONE bowl. Mix everything together until nice and crumbling like the photo above.

Roll out and cut into shapes. Easy as that!

‘Tis the season for pumpkin-everything and we just had to jump on board, again.

I’ve been telling myself I need to get my hiney back in gear and baking for the dogs on a regular basis, but to be honest I’ve been kind of lazy/busy as all get-out.

So I decided to make a batch of pumpkin dog treats.

The best part?

Four ingredients.

No rolling out dough – just mixing, scooping, and baking. These treats are made for those days where you don’t feel like cooking but want to whip something special up for your pup.

Doesn’t get much simpler than this, friends!

Oh, hi!

I feel as if we’re overdue to share a new dog treat recipe with you! Things have been a little nuts as we packed up all of our stuff and moved out of Minnesota the last week in January. However, life *should* be getting back to normal now that we’re (somewhat) settled in Colorado. Meaning we’ll be able to bust out a more regular treat recipe schedule for ya…

I’m excited to share this new smoothie recipe that Lola and Rio (of course) LOVED. It also happens to be pinkish-reddish in color just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Not too long ago I found out about The Honest Kitchen’s powdered goat milk called Bloom – have you used it? I love that it comes in a powder that you just add water to (less waste for us) and the dogs go nuts for it when I pour a little over their food. (No, THK did not pay me to say any of that.) Dangit.

Anyways, moving onward – this recipe is far from complicated and uses only three ingredients, I think it was completed from start to finish in 5 minutes. And that included washing my blender.

You’ve requested it and it’s finally here…chocolate pupcakes. For dogs. Made with carob, of course.

And guess what? Lola and Rio loved them. I know, I know, that doesn’t say much because these two would snap up a piece of lettuce or a single grain of rice and think they really got somethin’ special. But they really, really loved these. More than lettuce. And rice.

Puppy Power Smoothies

Puppy Power Smoothies - made with carrots & Parsley! www.lolathepitty.com

Lola and Rio seriously went nuts over these smoothies I  made for them. I love making treats like these for them because they are truly good for them and packed with vitamins, antioxidants, healthy fats and protein! And they love them…win. Wish I could say the same for myself.

I tried to snap a photo of them afterwards because they both had smoothie splattered all over their noses after slurping up their snack. Unfortunately both of their tongues were faster than I was.

Four simple ingredients make up these Puppy Power Smoothies:

Carrots – excellent source of vitamin A, antioxidants, fiber, vitamin K, potassium, folate, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin E and zinc… and if that wasn’t enough, didn’t your mom always tell you to eat your carrots?

Parsley – stinky breath fixer-upper. Plus vitamin C,  B12, K and A.

Greek yogurt – excellent source of protein!

Almond Milk – protein, low cal, plus a good source of omega fatty acids.

You can also freeze these and let your dog lick the cup clean for prolonged entertainment.

This recipe only yields four small servings, but you could easily double it or triple it and keep a supply in the freezer.

Yum, mom!

You will begin to notice a trend with all of the dog recipes I make on this blog. I will never use vegetable or canola oil in my recipes, if I use flour it will be either whole wheat or a gluten free flour (such as rice, corn, or coconut), I will never add any unnecessary sugar and they will all offer nutritional benefits for your pup.

You could say I’m a teensy bit picky about what our dogs eat.

I’ll be honest, our dogs eat much cleaner than I do. As I’m sure many of us can relate to.

I hope your pups enjoy these as much as Lola and Rio!

*I used rice flour and masa (corn flour), which can be found in the Asian & Hispanic aisles of most grocery stores. You can also use whole wheat flour.

*If desired, once treats are completely cooled, you can melt some Vanilla Candiquik Coating and dip or drizzle the dog biscuits! Just use portion control if you choose to do this. I dipped about 1/3 of the treats, to give as gifts and a very special treat to Lola, but then left most of them plain.
