Notes

For a tasty alternative, substitute 1/4 cup pureed peas in place of spinach. For brightest color, use frozen peas, cooked for 3 minutes. Then proceed with pureeing the peas.  
For faster prep time, use baby food! Baby food pureed spinach or peas will make your recipe come together in no time. Just know that you won't have the bright color. 
Want to make other color dog treats? Cut the spinach and use blueberries, strawberries or carrots to replace it.  Here's a list of dog-friendly fruits and vegetables you can try.
