THE STARS OF SUMMER

At MODERNBEAST summer means one thing - outdoor adventures with our always eager beasts!  Hiking trails, running (or walking) on the beach, neighborhood pup parties - you name it, we’re game.  But as the temperature rises, so does our desire for cool and delicious treats for our favorite companions.  So, to celebrate this activity packed time of year, we’re sharing our favorite fast (prep takes about 5 minutes), healthy (coconut oil, need we say more?) and oh-so-cute (stars with stripes!) treat to make.  And the best part?  NO BAKING!

INGREDIENTS: (Amounts vary depending on the size of your silicone molds)

  • Organic Strawberries
  • Organic Blueberries
  • Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil*

EQUIPMENT:

  • Silicone ice cube tray
  • Mini Cuisinart or blender
  • Measuring spoon

RECIPE:

*Never shared coconut oil with your beast?  Start slow (some vets recommend starting with ¼ teaspoon per day) or consult your vet - they know your dog, and they always have great advice.  The benefits of coconut oil for you and your beast are numerous, but we especially love the benefits for both coat and skin this time of year.
