Savory Veggie Bites For Your Next Dog Party

We've been having an unusually mild winter this year and this past weekend was no exception. With beautiful blue skies, sunshine,  and temperatures in the 60's, it was the perfect opportunity to spend time outdoors with the dogs.

Tootsie's cousin, Mr A, was expected to be popping over for a visit, along with his Momma.  It seemed the perfect opportunity to do something special for all the dogs.

I didn't want to head to the store, knowing Mr A and his Momma would be arriving soon, so I did a little brainstorming, with some assistance from Mr W ...

I've been wanting to try out a few new treat recipes for our pups, that are both healthy and delicious.  I figured this was a great way  to accomplish my goal and have a special surprise for the dogs!

With the ingredients I had on hand, I was able to come up with this simple and easy recipe to make for the dogs.


The dogs loved these savory veggie bites so much, that I decided I needed to  share this  recipe with you!


Easy no bake dog treat recipe for your next dog party.


Savory Veggie Bites Recipe

A Healthy Treat Your Dog Will Love


Ingredients:

  •  3/4 Cup Organic Greek Yogurt, Plain
  • 6 Florets of Organic Broccoli
  • 8 Organic Petite Baby Carrots
Directions:

  1. Place Greek yogurt in a strainer , lined with cheesecloth or a coffee filter.  Allow liquid to drain off.  
  2. Finely chop broccoli and carrots in blender.
  3. Gently combine vegetables with yogurt.
  4. Form mixture into bite size balls.  Allow veggie bites to rest on a paper towel lined tray, to  drain off any excess moisture. 
Step by step instructions for no bake dog treat recipe, which uses organic ingredients.


Plate veggie bites on a platter with garnishes of mini dog bones or a few carrot sticks and  broccoli florets.

Serve to your furry guests to get the party started ❤

On a side note, you can drain the yogurt in the fridge the night before,(see step 1 above), to speed up the preparation of the treats.  You can also chop the vegetables coarser if you want the bites to have more of a crunchy texture.  For us having dogs with different needs, one senior and two small dogs, I found it was better to use a fine chop for the veggies. I also made small, medium and large size bites, to accommodate the tiniest to largest of mouths.

The dogs had a great time at our party, we took lots of pictures to capture the fun!

Here are a few snapshots from our outdoor, beautiful weather, celebration.

 I would also like to send out a special thank you, to Mr A's Momma, for assisting with the outdoor photography.  She got some awesome shots, wouldn't you agree?


It was really nice to spend time outdoors with the dogs and Mr A's Momma. I think the surprise veggie bites made it extra special for our pups.

Do you have outdoor celebrations with your dogs?  What's your favorite place to have a dog party?
Would love to hear all about it!

Until next time, get outside and enjoy time with your fur baby ❤

  2. I don't think treats get much easier to make, and that's a plus in my book. I made some treats a few months ago, but nothing lately. I did mention to hubby it's a good idea to start making some again, as the treats he's buying Jack are, pardon my language, absolute crap. I think I'll give this a try! Thanks for sharin.

  4. I love that these are no bake treats! I am the worst baker in the world (burn everything), but I think I could handle making these. I also love the idea of making dog treats for a doggie play date or party.

    1. I totally get that, no bake is the best, especially when you are pressed for time. Hope you get a chance to try some for your next play date ❤

  5. Fantastic savories for the party indeed. Did they eat it all? Should I make a small experimental quantity first?

    1. We ended up with 6 or 7 bites that were not eaten, which we refrigerated for the next day, as a treat. Depending on the size of your dog or how many dogs you will be serving, you may want to reduce the recipe. You could also reserve some to use as a human treat by adding some nice herbs, nuts and or cheese! They are quite delicious ❤

  7. Kilo loves carrots and broccoli and yoghurt so these would be a winner in our house. I think my daughter and I would enjoy too with a little mayo and some herbs. We always have fresh veggies as snacks.

  9. Super easy recipe, I like it! My dogs like carrots, but I've not offered them broccoli. They really like fruit, so I think they'd embrace these veggie treats, too. I will be checking these out! Thanks!

    1. Would be the perfect way to introduce some broccoli. You could always increase the carrots and decrease the amount of broccoli. My pups love fresh fruits too ❤
