Mojitos for Mutts

 

Ingredients:

4 Zucchini
2 Cups Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
A few leaves of Fresh Mint

 

Directions: 

1. Wash zucchini under cold running water and roughly slice into small pieces, ensuring to cut off and discard the ends. Finely chop mint leaves.
2. Place zucchini and peas in a steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam for 10-15 minutes or until softened.
3. Allow to cool, then add zucchini, peas, mint and around 1/4 cup of boiled water to blender and puree until smooth. Add in small amounts of boiled water as required to achieve your desired consistency.
4. Pour mixture into ice cube trays (we use fun shaped silicon ice trays) and freeze for a minimum of 3-4 hours or until frozen.

What are the benefits to Mint and Cucumbers?

Fresh mint is a great way to keep your dog’s breath smelling fresh, and also has the added effect of calming an upset stomach.

Fresh cucumbers have high water content. This crunchy vegetable is actually 96% water, which makes it a tasty and hydrating summer treat after a vigorous walk.
