In Oregon, marionberries are the deal! A perfect mixture between a blackberry and a raspberry, these berries were developed as hybrids by Oregon University. A wonderful dog friendly berry with powerful antioxidants, this occasional breakfast treat will get you ready for those amazing Oregon hikes or anywhere else your paws take you!
2 cups fresh marionberries (any dog friendly berry can be substituted i.e, blueberries, raspberries or strawberries)
2 cups organic low-fat yogurt
1/4 cup organic honey
2 tablespoons peanut butter, unsalted and unsweetened (make sure there is NO xylitol or artificial sweeteners)
4 tablespoons whole wheat cereal or unsweetened cereal of your choice
Dixie cups, your choice on size and portion
carrot sticks (to be used as popsicle sticks!)
In a bowl, combine berries and honey. Stir well. Chunks are great!
Take a little peanut butter and rub on the inside of the dixie cups. This will help loosen the popsicles after freezing and is yummy! Layer the yogurt mixture and cereal, starting with the yogurt.
The yogurt should be thick enough to keep the carrot stick upright.
Freeze 3-4 hours until frozen solid. Run the mold briefly under warm water to loosen pops for easy removal if necessary. Peel off dixie cup and serve!
