Blend a simple smoothie with traditional, tasty flavors. Strawberries and Bananas infuse a perfect blend of fruity berry and creamy banana. Kids think it’s a milkshake, but we know better! It’s simple, pure, and a healthy treat- as well as delicious! Buster may think it looks yummy, but I wouldn’t recommend this for our dogs.
