This week’s episode of BarkBites is brought to you by our friends over at AvoDerm Natural®! To find out more about one of the most incredible — and most misunderstood — superfoods click here!
It’s a common misconception that avocados are toxic to dogs, so we not only wanted to set the record straight but to also show you a simple, summery way to incorporate some of the nutrient-rich awesomeness of avocados into your dog’s daily diet!
Although avocados are toxic to horses, cattle, goats, and birds, they are not toxic to dogs. This is not the case for the pit and the peel of the avocado, so be sure to toss them right away and always keep out of your dog’s reach!
– 1 Avocado
– 1 Banana
– 1 Tb. Coconut Oil
– 1 Tb. Honey
– 1 Cup Water
– Get to the meat of your avocado by slicing it in half lengthwise and then using your knife to twist, remove, and immediately discard the pit. Cut several lines in both directions to create a grid pattern and then squeeze the fruit directly into your food processor.
– Peel and add your banana, coconut oil, honey, and water to the mix and blend until smooth.
– Portion your mixture into popsicle molds (or an ice cube tray) and move to the freezer.
– Freeze for at least 1 hour before giving to your dog to enjoy.
