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!
Emma that is a super idea!!! we will fill my ole bones your way now… the mama filled them with a carrot… imagine that….
A carrot? Oh no, I don’t like carrots. It should be something tasty!

Another grand idea and recipe from Emma. I love to chew bones so this is great for me. XOXO, Sparkle
We all love them too and it is a great way to reuse some of the good ones.
Good plan, any dog would love.

It’s a shame to toss out old bones, so I make use of them.
That is very clever and you always have a goodie on standby!
Lots of goodies in the freezer!

What a great idea, Emma! We have tons of these lying around as well that we would love to re-purpose!
We can’t bear to throw them out, so I had the idea to fill and re use them! Yum!

Oh my sweetie! You have me drooling over this recipe. Sadly, we don’t get marrow bones so I will just have to imagine how pawsome these taste. ♥
That makes me sad. We get them once a week and just love them. My sisters love the ones frozen with treats too!

I don’t think it can get much easier!

What a great idea to fill those old bones and keep them tasty! We always love the easy ones, and I think this might make some great frozen treats in a mold too, since we don’t do bones around here.
It would make great frozen treats in a mold too!
Such a great idea Emma!

My favorite part of this recipe is licking the mixer. 😉 “Bone” appetit!
You’ve got that right!

What a brilliant idea! We’ll have to give that a shot. Goodness knows we have all sorts of those bones laying around. 🙂
We do too, and Mom says some are too good to toss out, so we decided to repurpose.
