Doggie Banana Pudding

Sep 10, 2021 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy Friday Treats Friday everyone!  With only two simple ingredients, this Doggie Banana Pudding with a touch of cinnamon is incredibly fast, healthy, and easy to make.  I always say doggie approved but I cannot lie.  Jake loved his banana pudding and Maggie sniffed hers and walked away.  She has never been a fan of bananas but I thought with some cinnamon on it, she would like her new treat.  It was a no go for Maggie.
I promised my Fall Buffalo Check Tablescape on Friday but this treat was a fun idea so I chose to reschedule it for Monday!  Stay turned for some adorable fall ideas for your table!

I took six very ripe bananas and smashed them with a fork, spooned the banana into containers and sprinkled cinnamon on top.  You can see I got a bit aggressive with the cinnamon on my first pudding cup but afterwards got the hang of it.
 
RECIPE:
6 bananas mashed with a fork
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon sprinkled on top of banana pudding
Freeze in your favorite mold or serve at room temperature in a pet safe bowl

Are you wondering if dogs can have bananas and cinnamon?  Yes to both according to the ASPCA and American Kennel Club!

Can Dogs Eat Cinnamon?
In small amounts, yes. Cinnamon is non-toxic to dogs according to the ASPCA. In small amounts, which means one teaspoon or less per serving as an occasional treat, it is perfectly safe and may even offer health benefits.

However, in large quantities, it may irritate the mouth or stomach, cause low blood sugar or even liver disease. Inhaling cinnamon may irritate dogs’ lungs and cause coughing, choking or difficulty breathing.

Are Bananas Good for Dogs?
Bananas are high in potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. In fact, sometimes veterinarians recommend this fruit as a healthy alternative to fatty, salty treats. The fruit is also high in fiber, which can help if your dog is having gastrointestinal problems, and magnesium, which promotes bone growth and helps the body produce protein and absorb vitamins. However, like with any food item, you should only feed your dog bananas in moderation, especially since they contain a lot of sugar.

I served up this little treat mashed at room temperature but you can also freeze it as well.  A fun idea would be to put the banana mixture in your favorite mold, top with a little sprinkle of cinnamon, and freeze!  Or mix up the banana and cinnamon together using six bananas and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

This dessert filled 5 small bowls made of vaseline glass but they were only used for staging and photo ops.  Once the pictures were quickly taken, I transferred this treat to a plastic bowl so that Jake could enjoy his treat safely.  Like I said earlier, Maggie could have cared less and eventually walked away 🙂
