Freshen up your dog's breath with this easy homemade Minty Fresh Breath Dog Treat

GRAB YOUR INGREDIENTS!

• 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt

• 1/4 cup mint

• 1/4 cup parsley

These treats are a breeze to make! Using a blender or food processor, blend together the mint, parsley, yogurt, and coconut oil. Stir in small bits of apple.

Pour mixture into ice cube trays or silicone mold. Consider the size of your dog when making the mold. Small pups usually need small-sized treats and vice versa.
