As I mentioned in my last post, I just returned from a week long stay at my parents’ house in Minnesota. It was incredibly relaxing and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, although I think Oliver had the most fun out of the two of us. My parents joke that their house is like doggie summer camp. He enjoyed a good weekend of car rides…
And long walks in the woods, filled with smells of moles, squirrels, bunnies, and deer…
So while I cannot read his doggie mind, I can only imagine he wasn’t too thrilled about his Chicago homecoming. I don’t blame him. I have to go back to work so my day is no longer centered around spoiling him rotten. To make his homecoming to Chicago a little more enjoyable I decided to spoil him with another Yöghund copycat recipe.
This time instead of Peanut Butter Banana I made Blueberry-Banana. With so many blueberries hanging around the house it seemed like an easy choice. There also seem to be so many dog products enhanced with blueberries because of the antioxidants, though I’m no animal nutritionist so I just picked them because I knew they would be safe and taste delicious. And Oliver seemed to think so, lapping it down with incredible enthusiasm. Hopefully if you have any dogs in your life they will enjoy this as well.
Yields 6 servings
-12 ounces (I used two 6-ounce containers) fat free plain yogurt
-1/2 cup blueberries
-1 medium banana
In a blender or food processor puree together all ingredients. Distribute evenly in a 6-cup silicone muffin pan (or alternatively a standard metal muffin pan in which the cups have been lined with plastic wrap for easy removal). Freeze for 6-8 hours until firm and transfer to a freezer-safe storage bag or container.
As a side bar, thank you for all the votes in the Tastefully Simple recipe contest. I am so flattered and appreciative. Voting is open through Friday so if you haven’t yet, I’d appreciate if you’d vote for me. Just view my video here and mark that you ‘like it.’ Note that if you do not yet have a YouTube account it may prompt you to sign up for one. And yes, I’m a bit, err, awkward on camera. I have to say I have even greater appreciation for how hard it must be on The Next Food Network Star. (So thrilled for Aarti by the way!)
