Fueled Smoothies mixes up some Doggy Smoothies for our mascot “Autumn”

With the right ingredients, the same energizing smoothie that gets you up and running in the morning can be shared with your dog. Smoothies can provide excellent health benefits for our dogs. The health benefits of certain fruits and vegetables can put a spring in your dog’s step and help with many benefits. Little A – had surgery at about 1 year on her hip and suffers from arthritis at 2, as a result. I got to thinking, I’ll make her a smoothie. So… some spinach, pumpkin and carrots into the Vitamix and she’s in heaven.

 Watch for frozen doggie smoothie treats coming to Fueled!

 Some information on Dog Smoothies

The best pet-friendly fruits and vegetables and their benefits:

  • Apples: make a great addition to any pooch smoothie. We remove the seeds and core however.
  • Bananas: The natural sugars in this sweet ingredient are rapidly metabolized and provide an energy and add a cream texture.
  • Blueberries: provide an excellent source of antioxidants and are perfectly safe for your dog. Blueberries are known to help prevent heart disease, cancer and other health conditions in humans, and they can do the same for your pet, other berries as well, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are all dog-approved fruits.
  • Carrots: Low in calories and high in vitamin A, carrots make wonderful snacks on their own and they’re a high fiber add-in for doggie smoothies.
  • Pumpkin: Is very well known helping digestive issues, pumpkin can improve GI tract movement and provides a healthy source of fiber.
  • Spinach: In small amounts spinach can be a great addition to your doggie’s diet. It contains vitamin K, which helps promote healthy bone growth, and it also contains antioxidants and iron to aid in sustainable health.

We’ll be freezing portions for the summer!
