You can make these treats with any juice pulp bearing in mind that there are a few fruits and veggies that are not safe for dogs to eat, mainly onions, garlic and grapes most of which I don't think people are putting into their juices... unless you're making a savory tomato garlicy type juice, in which case DON'T use that pulp to make doggy treats.
I try to always use organic fruits and veggies when I juice, in addition I use organic pb and oats so these treats are organic and vegan, IDK if you've priced organic dog treats but boy are they expensive! So making your own and using that juice pulp instead of throwing it away really makes these treats easy on the wallet!
Homemade juice pulp doggy treats:
The juice I made the most recent batch of treats from was the first juice in yesterday's post: 1 large sweet potato, 3 large carrots and 2 oranges. After making my juice I was left with about 3-4 cups of pulp. If you have more or less pulp you can adjust your other ingredients accordingly.
Place the pulp in a bowl and add 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 cup oats and I added 1/4 cup ground flax seed.
|Approx 4 cups of juice pulp|
Use your hands to squish, mix and combine well.
Roll into balls appropriate for your dog's size. Mine are about 1 inch balls.
Bake at 300 for 1 hour turning once half way through.
My dogs LOVE these, in fact they love to just eat them raw, kinda like how I love eating cookie dough raw lol.
|What a little beggar! lol|

So save your pulp! Nothing wasted and your pups yet a YUMMY, healthy treat!
