This is the final week of K9 Kamp! Not only has the fitness regime heated up, but the summer temperatures have too. Since there is nothing better than a refreshing snack after exercising I decided to post these healthy yet tasty K9 Kamper Snacks. The basic recipe is nothing new, just the form to make them in is new. Because of their size they are practical for all sizes of dogs. ***Note, keep a close eye on your cat…he may try to steal ingredients while pretending to be helping you!
My mom learned how to make lots of different chocolate items from Gramma, but one of her favorites is making chocolate covered cherries and this is where I got the idea for these snacks from. I thought, why not use the yogurt in place of the chocolate and then add fresh fruit instead of the sugared up cherry stuff mom uses. The photo below shows the 3 stages, painted exterior, add fruit, cover fruit. So simple, even a dog can do it!
Simply polish up a cherry mold and using a paint brush paint a coating o plain non fat yogurt in each shape. Put the mold in the freezer to harden. Add a piece of fruit like a blueberry and cover with more yogurt. Put back in the freezer for an hour or so to harden.
Remove the mold from the freezer and pop out the yogurt covered fruits in their pretty bite sized shape. These are great for dogs of any size since they are pretty small. We eat them outside to avoid any mess if the yogurt starts defrosting.
