BONE Appetit: Frozen FunPosted: June 21, 2013
The dog days of summer have officially come to South Louisiana, and it is H-O-T hot! My daily walks are now an early morning race to beat the rising sun’s heat. I don’t need to remind you that I am not a morning girl, so this adjustment in my exercise schedule is not thrilling me in the least. It is far too hot for me to enjoy outdoor restaurant dining, which is a crushing blow to my social life. And my road trips to New Orleans have been put on the back burner until at least October. Bummer. So, in an effort to lift my spirits, my human mommy has been on the hunt for some refreshing homemade treats, and I am extremely happy to report that she has found the perfect frozen fun to get me through this summer.
On a recent BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, my mommy hopped on over to Beagles and Bargains and found a super simple recipe for Strawberry Banana Pupsicles. You’re looking at everything you need to create this frozen fun:
One banana, cut into chunky pieces
- A handful of strawberries, cut into chunky pieces
- A cup of nonfat, sugar-free, plain yogurt
That’s it! Just pop the ingredients into a blender and blend, pour into molds, freeze, and–now this is the only hard part–wait.
I give these perfect summertime treats two paws way up, and I cannot thank Luna’s mother, who writes Beagles and Bargains, enough for introducing my mommy to what I hope will be a recurring feature during this otherwise stifling season.
And speaking of fabulous treats, earlier this week I received a very sweet one from my friend Ku, who writes Haiku by Ku. He presented me with The Versatile Blogger Award, and best of all he called me beautiful in his lovely acceptance and nomination haiku. Oh, Ku, I think it’s you melting my heart and not the summer heat. Please keep your paws crossed for Ku today. He has a little bump on his nose, so he’s spending the day at the vet to have it removed and looked at, and he’s a little nervous. I know his mama will have special treats and lots and lots of kisses for him when he gets home.
