Save this recipe for year round delicious-ness and just change up the ingredients! During the fall I like to substitute the banana and instead add pumpkin or sweet potato. In the spring I’ll go another direction and add in some frozen blueberries or strawberries. There is no limit to the amount of possibilities and outcomes you can make with just these basic steps and ingredients! This is an awesome recipe to have handy all year around.

We have a simple ingredient dog treat recipe that only requires 1 ingredient…yes only 1! This means less time spent in the kitchen, and more time playing with your pup. Both of you will be thankful!

The source of this magical time-saving recipe is the sweet potato! Many people enjoy sweet potato fries and now your dogs can do! Sweet potatoes provide many health benefits such as:

- High in fibre

- Low fat

- Contain vitamin B6, C and manganese

- Full of antioxidant beta-carotene

The antioxidant beta-carotene is helpful because it helps to convert Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an important part to help your dog’s growth, sight, and muscle strength. Loss of Vitamin A can lead to poor vision quality, lower hair and skin quality. Sweet potato treats are a fantastic way to keep your dog healthy…and they will love the sweet taste!
