Milkshake loves the magic of the holiday season and what better way to celebrate than with some dog friendly Eggnog, or what we like to call, Doggy Eggnog Delight!

We have taken traditional Eggnog and put a fruity twist on it, using apple instead of egg. It's healthy, dog safe and delicious! You will find the recipe for Milkshake's Doggy Eggnog Delight below, followed by a recipe card that you can print off and keep for the next time you're feeling festive. If your pup is not a fan of apple, you can check out Milkshake's recipe for dog friendly pumpkin spiced 'latte' here

Whilst traditional Eggnog uses raw eggs, which are safe for dogs to eat, depending on the country you live in, eggs are not always safe to eat raw due to Salmonella concerns (salmonella is a bacteria that can cause sickness). In addition, if your dog is not used to eating raw egg, the worst time to experiment and risk a possible bad tummy is over the holidays when you are entertaining! For  those reasons we decided to use banana and apple instead. If you regularly feed your dogs raw eggs without any problems, our favourite Dog Eggnog recipe that features raw egg is from Gone to the Snow Dogs.

Can my dog eat apple? Yes they can! In fact, apple is an excellent source of vitamin a, vitamin c and source of fibre for dogs. When given to your dog raw, apple can help to clean your dog's teeth and help to freshen their breath. Make sure you always remove the apple core and seeds when feeding apples as the seeds, like with most fruits, can be toxic for dogs in large quantities. 

Can my dog eat banana? They absolutely can! Bananas are a healthy treat for dogs which are low in calories, sodium and cholesterol. They are also a great source of vitamins B6, and vitamin C as well as magnesium and potassium. 

There are a lot of twists on the typical Eggnog recipe for dogs including this Dog Eggnog recipe from Borrow my Doggy using squash and carrot.

We love to serve Doggy Eggnog Delight to our pugs on Christmas Day, after their morning walk, just before we open presents under the tree. With all that excitement, a good snooze usually follows.
