Healthy Treats for Your Pup: Strawberry Mango Tango

Strawberry Mango Tango:

A treat your dog will love and you can feel good about!

We all know that dogs love treats, but not all treats are created equal! Some treats are high in calories, highly processed and filled with chemicals, or both.

Treats can be fun for you to give to your best friend, in addition to helping with training or rewarding good behavior. But you also want to keep their calories from their treats in check! Excess treats can contribute to weight gain, which can lead to many serious health conditions, including arthritis.

That’s why we’re sharing this CARE recipe for a healthy, yummy treat you can make at home in minutes. What’s even better is that it’s all human-grade and you can snack on a Strawberry Mango Tango along with your pup!

 

Calories per treat: 46

What you’ll need:

To make Strawberry Mango Tango: 

Combine all ingredients with the exception of the strawberry in a blender or food processor.

Pulse for 30 seconds to break up the frozen banana and mango.

Blend on high for 30 seconds or until you achieve a sorbet-like consistency.

Divide into your silicone muffin cups. Top with a strawberry slice.

Put in the freezer for an hour or until firm.
