The Dogs days of Summer

Can’t believe how fast this summer is passing! What happened to June and July?! It has definitely been a hot summer but before school and traffic starts and we get back to our routines, we had to enjoy a last minute family gathering. All we needed was good food and good company. Our good company included our three dogs along with lots of hungry friends. And wanted to end the summer on a good note so our Good Food included healthy ice cream treats this time.

I definitely have to tell you all about Dogster because I never knew that there was ice cream for dogs. I’m not talking about having your dog lick your ice cream bowl when you’re done but real ice cream dedicated for dogs.  Dogsters are small cups of ice cream that come in Mint and Peanut Butter and Cheese flavors. We were so excited to have our dogs try these treats out and we weren’t disappointed – they loved it! We had a box of the Mint ice cream and all 3 dogs took their cups and started licking away. We removed the paper lid and put the ice cream cups inside their food bowl so it wouldn’t be too messy but there was not even a drop left by the time they finished. The oldest dog took her cup to a corner and licked her cup non-stop in record time until there was no more. She cleaned it up so well that I almost thought she was going to eat the cup too. I’m sure if they were to write a review they would give Dogsters Ice Cream 10 stars! The box states it’s all natural and there are no added sugar, no milk, and no artificial flavors/colors so that was a major plus!

We didn’t forget the humans at the party either as we had our own version of healthy treats. I was skeptical at first as I am a die-hard chocolate lover but there was no chocolate in sight here and I was in for a sweet surprise. We served Whole Fruit Fruit Bars in Coconut and Raspberry, Whole fruit Sorbet in Mango and Raspberry and Whole Fruit Frozen Juice.  The Mango flavored sorbet was the most popular flavor. After all, you can’t go wrong with Mango. My favorite was the Coconut Fruit Bars ( I love anything coconut). Both the Mango and Raspberry sorbet can go well by itself or as an addition to another treat such as Key Lime Pie. These bars were only 70 calories each and the frozen fruits juices were 60 calories each which made this the perfect treat after a big barbecue.

Overall, it was a successful gathering of family, friends and dogs. We had great food and our sweets didn’t break any diets either but more importantly I feel this is what summer is all about. Hope you all got a chance to celebrate the season with the ones you care – humans and non-humans.
