On the Ball: Whip Up a Birdie Smoothie

Did you know that fruits, vegetables, and greens should make up 20 to 25 percent of your bird's diet? Check with a vet for safe fruits for your pet – many pits and seeds can be dangerous for animals, as can trace amounts of pesticides on any unwashed, unpeeled items.

Here's an easy three ingredient bird smoothie recipe:

  • 1 banana
  • 4 strawberries, rinsed well
  • 3 ice cubes

Plus, you'll need the following kitchen tools: a knife, measuring spoons, and a blender.

Peel the banana and cut it into slices. Cut the hulls from the strawberries. Add the fruit and ice cubes to the blender, and blend on high to "liquefy." Serve approximately two tablespoons, and feel free to sample the rest yourself! Don't forget to remove the leftover portion after two hours and thoroughly clean the bird's dish.
