Nature's Recipe Dog Food Treats

Hey y’all! Happy Thursday πŸ™‚ I am so excited to share a fun snack tutorial on how I Fuel The Wag for my pup with Nature’s Recipe! With my busy schedule, my (almost) 3-year old pup stays just as busy and it is so important to me to keep his energy up during the day, so he can get good sleep at night.

For this tutorial you’ll need:

  • Nature’s Recipe Dry Dog Food from Food Lion. You can find Nature’s Recipe in the dry dog food aisle.
  • Apple sauce
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Muffin pan
  • Oil spray
  • 15 minutes of prep time, 45 minutes to freeze and 5 minutes to plate then serve

So, let’s get started!

  1. Start with 2-cups of Nature’s Recipe Dry Dog Food from Food Lion
  2. Add 1 cup of apple sauce
  3. Add a half can of pumpkin puree
  4. Mix all ingredients together so that the dry dog food is coated with apple sauce and pumpkin puree
  5. Use a coating spray to coat your muffin pan
  6. Fill the muffin pan with your mixture about 3/4 of the way
  7. Top off each with a thick layer of pumpkin puree so that the top of each muffin pan is smooth
  8. Pop in the freezer for 45 minutes
  9. Take you pup on a long walk or playtime with the neighbor’s pup
  10. Take the muffin pan out of the freezer and plate the treats to display

Pretty simple, right? Here are some other tips

  • To store, add treats to a freezer safe sandwich bag and store in the freezer
  • If you want the entire treat to look smooth all around, coat your muffin pan with pumpkin puree on the bottom and sides

My pup is OBSESSED with these treats and I love how they keep him energized all throughout the date. Nature’s Recipe, that can be purchased from Food Lion, is a great choice to Fuel the Wag of your pup. Their dog food includes high quality ingredients,Β Natural Recipes with added vitamins and minerals, no corn or wheat and you can buy Grain-Free options. I am so happy that Nature’s Recipe Dry Dog Food is now being sold in mass grocery stores, such as Food Lion, since it was previously only sold in specialty stores. This change makes it easy for me to grad a bag at my local Food Lion at any time.

    My dog is weirdly picky about anything “healthy” – he hates all veggies and fruits – but I think mixed in with the dog food (and maybe some peanut butter) he’d love this!
