A dog friendly, festive recipe for your dog in partnership with PETstock and with the help of my youngest dog, Pabla. Who says dogs can’t have pudding for Christmas?! Well actually they can’t eat our (human) puddings because ingredients like raisins and chocolate are toxic to dogs. So I thought it would be fun to create a dog-friendly bite sized version that’s an easy 15 minute no-bake recipe for you to whip up. You can grab ingredients like the Black Dog Carob Buttons and Yoghurt Drops from your local PETstock. The garnishes are optional but who wouldn’t pop on a cranberry and some mint leaves to make it extra festive?!
Makes: 5 small puddings
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Skill Level: Easy
- ¼ cup of oats
- 6 medjool dates
- ¼ cup of peanut butter, chunky or smooth
- ¼ cup of Black Dog carob buttons, melted
- 1 tablespoon of Black Dog carob drops, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of flour, for dusting
- ¼ cup of Black Dog yoghurt drops, melted
- 10 small mint leaves
- 5 small cranberries
- 1 x blender or food processor
- Ziplock bag, small piping bag or squeeze bottle
- Place the oats, dates, chopped carob, melted carob, and peanut butter into a food processor and blitz until combined.
- Lightly dust your board with a little bit of flour and roll the mixture into little bite sized balls. The flour will help the puddings be less sticky on the surface.
- Melt the yoghurt drops in a small bowl in the microwave for about 1 minute and transfer into a small piping bag, ziplock bag or squeeze bottle.
- Pipe the melted yoghurt onto the tops of each pudding, allowing it to fall down the sides halfway for effect.
- Garnish with a cranberry, you can roll this in your hand to create a small cranberry ball, and add 2 small mint leaves to look like Christmas Holly.
- Allow the yoghurt topping to set for 5 minutes before serving.
