My dog, Pearl, is for sure a basic bitch.
She lives in West LA, Ubers everywhere she goes, only eats gluten-free non-GMO free-range dog kibble, and can usually be found lushing around in athletic “leisure wear”.
I know that she’s secretly been wanting her own pumpkin spice latte for years.
I’d never stand between a Pomchi and her latte, so I made this dog-friendly PSL recipe!
The recipe is very simple and consists of ingredients that are healthy for your pup.
The pumpkin is full of vitamins A & C, magnesium, potassium, and iron. It is also high in fiber, which helps with digestion.
Traditional pumpkin pie spice contains a few ingredients that are harmful to dogs. In this recipe, I use only a small amount of cinnamon and ginger, which are both okay for your pup to consume.
For the milk, you can use either coconut or goat. I used goat’s milk, which can aid digestion and help reduce inflammation.
When I sat it down, Pearl immediately put on her best scarf and ran over to lap it up.
It must have been good, because normally if I try to give her a new kind of food she is very timid. Not today!
These pumpkin spice lattes may just be her new favorite dog treat!
A few things to keep in mind if you decided to make these pumpkin spice lattes for your dog:
- If you top them with whipped cream, make sure it does not contain xylitol. This is often found in sugar-free products and is toxic to dogs.
- Make sure to buy 100% Pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix. These cans can look very similar on the grocery store shelf if you aren’t paying close attention.
- While this recipe is called a “latte”, it contains no coffee or caffeine. Be sure not to add any, as it is harmful to dogs.
- All dogs are different. Be sure to consult with your vet before introducing any new food into their diet.
