We have a lot of old marrow bones lying around at our house. About once a week we each get a fresh marrow bone to gnaw on and eat the marrow out of, but we then keep them around to chew on. It seems like a real shame to throw the old bones out, so Mom decided I should fill them to be reused!
You know I love to be creative in the kitchen! Last fall, I posted my salmon stuffed bone recipe which is seriously to drool for, but being springtime, I wanted something lighter and more refreshing. For my filling I’m using plain Greek yogurt, banana, low salt, low fat, peanut butter, and maple syrup or honey for that extra flavor infusion!
I love to keep things simple, and this recipe is not exception! Truth be told, there really is no recipe. The ingredients are added to the mixing cup in any amount you feel like adding. There is no right or wrong amount!
Use your blender, food processor, or hand blender to mix up the ingredients into a smooth “batter”. Make sure the bananas have been pureed and are not causing any lumps.
The mixer will be pretty messy, so I suggest you lick it off to avoid a mess, and to test the flavor of your filling.
Tear off a piece of plastic wrap, stand one of your old marrow bones on end on the plastic. Fill the cavity with the filling, and wrap it up tight to keep the filling from running out.
Pop the filled and wrapped bones into the freezer for several hours or months. Take them out and unwrap when you are sniffing around the kitchen for a tasty and refreshing snack! As always, supervise your dog with any type of bones. I only use raw or smoked old marrow bones, and ones that are real thick. With all the different sizes of bones I make a variety so there is one for each of us that is just the right size!
