Monkey Smoothie

January 27th, 2014 by primatecare Leave a reply »

Looking to “Mix” things up in your monkey’s diet?  This is a smoothie mix for your monkeys or you could even make this into popsicles and give this to your monkeys on a hot day or as a treat. You can get the plastic popsicle containers from the dollar store and our monkeys love them because they have a plastic handle they can hold on to and it keeps their hands from getting cold.

Thank you Winona for sharing!

Ingredients:

3 bananas
1 large apple (or 2 smaller apples)
1 large peer
4-6 monkey biscuits
1 Sweet Potato
Oatmeal or Multi Grain Cereal
Follow these steps:

  1. Peel fruits and put them in a blender together with 16.9fl oz bottle of water. Blend until mixture is smooth.
  2. Add 4 to 6 monkey biscuits and one medium sized baked or micro waved sweet potato. Blend until mixture is smooth.
  3. Put half of the mixed product into a holding container.
  4. Take remaining blend and add water until there is a funnel in the blender. Add Cereal to thicken the monkey smoothie.
  5. Take product in holding container and add to smoothie in blender. If there is still a funnel, add more cereal until funnel is gone.

You can store mixture into fridge for about 2 days.

I have substituted the water for unsweetened juice also, especially if I am making popsicles.
