Yeah, we'll admit it—some of us are health nuts here at Finding Rover. For the more active pooches around here, we've found that nutrient-rich smoothies are just as beneficial for recovery after long hikes for the pups as they are for us. Below is one of our dogs' personal favorite recovery concoctions, something we like to call Superpup's Power Pooch Smoothie.
-1 cup non-fat greek yogurt
-1/2 cup blueberries (blueberries are packed with antioxidants and are especially beneficial for older dogs)
-1/4 cup nori (nori is extremely protein-rich, making it an incredibly restorative food for active dogs)
-3 tablespoons peanut butter (this will give your pup the necessary heart-healthy fats and vitamin-rich calories they need after vigorous exercise)
-Water as needed
Blend the ingredients in a blender and either distribute evenly and freeze as pupsicle treats for your dog, or give to him in liquid form directly after heavy exercise. This smoothie will help your pooch recover nicely and he'll love you for the delicious treat!
