- ¼ cup canned pumpkin–be sure to avoid pumpkin pie filling, the ingredients on the label should read just “pumpkin”
- 2 Tbsp. non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup unsalted chicken broth–should not contain garlic or onion
- (optional) the liquid from 1 can of chickpeas–opt for an option with low to no sodium and no preservatives
- (optional) Sundays for Dogs pieces as a topping
- Can opener, if needed
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Mixing bowls
- (optional) electric mixer
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings for dogs under 50lb, 2 servings for dogs over 50lb
- 1. Measure out the appropriate amounts of pumpkin, Greek yogurt, and chicken broth and add to mixing bowl.
Expert tip: Any unused pumpkin can be stored in a resealable container in the fridge for up to one week and added to your dog’s meal as a supplemental treat that’s high in fiber and helps promote healthy digestion.
- 2. Whisk ingredients together to combine.
- (Optional step 1) In a separate bowl, separate the aquafaba (liquid from canned chickpeas) from the solids. This recipe does not use the actual chickpeas.
- (Optional step 2) Using the electric mixer, whip the aquafaba until stiff-peak consistency is achieved.
- 3. Pour the pumpkin mixture into a serving dish. If continuing on to extra steps–as if making a pup'kincino for dogs wasn’t extra enough–top the “latte” with a dollop of aquafaba whip, and finish it off with a square of Sundays.
