Doggie Banana Pudding
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 🙂
