Hi everyone! Today we have a dessert-style recipe, it's (healthy) candy just for dogs! :) All you need are 3 ingredients!
For the fruits, you don't have to use strawberries. I chose strawberries because I love pink candy! Haha. That aside, I wanted to eat some myself so I figured why not use a berry I liked best :P With regards to flour, feel free to use any you have on hand :) Brown rice flour is easy to digest, but it can be substituted if your pup has allergies or if you don't wanna buy a whole bag of it (especially since you only need a small amount).
Before mixing all your ingredients together, preheat your oven to 125degrees.
STEP 1: Place strawberries and yoghurt into a blender. If your blender is being stubborn, add 1 tablespoon of water to get things going! Try not to add too much water as the final mixture needs to be firm enough to pipe.
STEP 2: After blending everything well, push the mixture through a sieve/strainer. This helps remove any lumps so you don't get chunks of strawberries in your candy (not that it's a bad thing of course!).
This is what you should get:
STEP 3: Add Brown Rice Flour to your strawberry and yoghurt mixture. Mix well until there are no lumps.
STEP 4: Place everything into a piping bag fitted with a large round nozzle. The piping tip is NOT necessary. You can always place it into a piping bag/makeshift piping bag (using a ziplock bag) and pipe it out. I just used a tip because I obviously have way too many lying around the kitchen haha.
STEP 5: Pipe each one into a "teardrop" shape! It might take a little practice, but don't worry, dogs can't tell a teardrop from a blob :P You should get about 25 kisses if you're a pro! As for me, I lost about 5 kisses in the making because I was fiddling with it trying to figure out which size I liked best haha. It really doesn't matter what size or shape you make them though, cooking is about having fun!! :D
Now, chuck these little nuggets into the oven for 20 minutes!
And this is what you'll get!!
For the wrapping, I simply used aluminium foil and stuck a piece of paper into it! Really, really, easy!! These are soft treats, and can be kept in the fridge for about 3 days, or frozen for about a week :)
