Nobody wants to get caught without something green on St. Patrick's Day, and your pup is no exception (even if we want to pinch the cheeks on their sweet faces!). Don’t furget to grab a green harness and leash for your St. Paddy’s Day walk, and check out this recipe for the perfect post-walkies green treat!

This recipe consists of mint, parsley, spinach, and green apple which not only gives it a lovely green color, but will also help freshen your dog’s breath! Both mint and parsley are great for helping to freshen up your dog’s breath. Apples are a great way to help keep teeth clean. Think of them like nature’s toothbrushes! Coconut oil has antibacterial properties that will help stop bacteria from developing and spreading, as well as assist in plaque control. We also used plain Greek yogurt to give this a creamy shake texture. If you are looking for a dairy-free alternative, we suggest a dairy-free yogurt or coconut cream! Lastly, we added spinach for the color and the great vitamins and minerals it contains! All of these ingredients combined make a fun and festive frozen treat that your pup can enjoy all year round!

To make the shakes, we blended up frozen bits of the shake mixture and a little water. However, you can serve this however your pup prefers! One of our favorite ways to serve and store these treats is as individual frozen pieces! To make these, use a freezer-safe silicone mold. You can find tons of fun shaped molds at your local craft store and online. These individual treats can be stored in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container in the freezer for an easy-to-grab snack!

Another way to serve this is on a lick mat! Lick mats are a great way to give your dog a stimulating and enriching treat experience. Lick mats are great for helping alleviate stress, creating mental stimulation, and encouraging healthy teeth and gums! You can spread the mixture on the lick mat and freeze before serving, or serve unfrozen. By freezing the lick mat, the mixture will keep your dog occupied longer, and allow you to freeze toppings like fresh blueberries or your dog’s favorite treat to the top of the lick mat as well. Get creative and curate the perfect lick mat for your pup! If you have not heard the good news, Sassy Woof has a variety of colorful lick mats for you and your pup to enjoy! Check out how we used them with this mixture below for inspiration!

Dog-Friendly St. Paddy’s Day Shake

Supplies needed:

Food Processor or Blender


Cutting Board & Knife

Freezer-Safe Silicone Mold Or Ice Cube Tray


1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt 

¼ Cup Mint

*Do not use English/European Mint as this can be toxic for dogs!

¼ Cup Parsley

¼ Cup Spinach

¼ Cup Coconut Oil

½ Cup Green Apple


* Please double check any allergies or dietary needs with your vet if you are unsure of your pup’s dietary needs! We want to make sure they have a great time enjoying a special treat with you and no one ends up with an unhappy tummy!

Step 1

Prepare the mint and parsley by removing the leaves from the stems. Prepare the apples by cutting into small pieces, removing the core, any seeds, and stems. 

Step 2

In a food processor or blender, blend together the Greek yogurt, mint, parsley, spinach, and coconut oil.

Step 3

Once fully blended, add in apple chunks and blend until fully incorporated.

Step 4

Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe silicone mold and freeze overnight.

Step 5

Once frozen, you can serve as frozen treats or blend in a food processor or blender with a little bit of water to make a shake consistency! Pour into a bowl or cup and serve! (We put a little bit of whipped cream and a parsley leaf on ours!)

To store frozen treats, take treats out of the silicon mold and store in a freezer-safe bag or container. Treats can be stored for 4-6 weeks in the freezer!
