Smoothie bowl for your bestie


It’s a quick post today, just wanting to chat about putting some Psyllium into your pup’s diet.

 Psyllium is a form of fibre made from the husk of the Plantago orato plant’s seed.  It commonly goes by the name ispaghula.

If your furry friend has been a little constipated or has been on some medication and the stools have become too hard to pass, by sprinkling half a teaspoon onto their dinner is an excellent way to get a great source of fibre into their diet and will soften stools for passing.  Add some, even to your own diet.

Some other benefits of psyllium:

  • Good for heart health
  • Lowers blood sugar levels
  • Aids intestinal health
  • Can aid in weight maintenance
  • Psyllium is packed full of soluble fibre

I’ve created a nutritious dog smoothie recipe that the pups absolutely loved, its a great way to add some psyllium into your dog’s diet.



– makes enough for x 3 dogs (300 ml each)


1 tsp ground cinnamon

180 g frozen blueberries

1Tbsp peanut butter

1 Tbsp ground flaxseeds

1 Tbsp psyllium

900ml goats milk ( I drank 100ml – delicious!)

Handful of strawberries, dried blueberries, 1 Tbsp hemp seeds and mint to garnish 😉 (optional)


Blend all ingredients together, excluding the strawberries, hemp seeds and mint.  I used my thermomix to blend smoothie.
