LickiMat Recipes- Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Pumpkin Pie? Cheese Cake? Surely these delicious flavours are impossible to replicate for dogs, right? Fortunately you are wrong, this recipe will enable your pet to sample the flavours of some of our favourite deserts, what an incredible treat!

I always like to add this little disclaimer to the start of thes recipes to help inform new pet owners. Although these ingredients are pet safe, it does not necessarily mean that your pet will react well to all foods. It is important to know your pet and its breed well because just like humans it is possible for pets to have allergies and intolerance. For example, some really common ingredients used in pet foods include chicken and salmon, however my little French Bulldog is intolerant to both. Just be cautious and aware of how your pet reacts to different foods.

For this reason we reccomend that you do not stray from the suggested ingredients unless you know that it is safe for your pet. Although allspice, cloves and nutmeg are classic pumpkin pie ingredients, they are not safe for pets so please do not add any of these to the mixture. 

Cinnamon is safe for dogs and in small quantities can have endless benefits to your pet, it is highly nutritious and good for digestion. We all know that pumpkin makes a healthy treat for your dog. It contains a multitude of vitamins, acting as a rich source of Vitamin E. It is also a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Potassium, along side many, many more. 


This recipe should be enough for at least two portions. Try using the LickiMat Buddy. You will need:

225g of cooked pumpkin (boiled, steamed or roasted)

5 table spoons of cream cheese

3 tablespoons desiccated coconut

1/2 teaspoon cinammon

All you have to do is blend all these ingredients together, scoop it onto your LickiMat and smooth it off with the back of the spoon and the spatula. This delicious pet safe recepie can be frozen or kept in the fridge for up to five days.
