Want the scoop on making a dog-friendly gingerbread “latte”?

Mix up a special batch of yummy holiday cheer with pup-safe flavors of the season. You may not get tipped in cash for this on-trend gingerbread “latte,” but the licks and looks and love you’ll receive in return are priceless.


  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 tsp. pure (xylitol-free) maple syrup*

  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger

  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1-3 BLUE Santa Snacks Biscuits, crumbled

*Use pure maple syrup. Imitation maple syrup contains xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.


1. Combine the first four ingredients into a blender.
2. Blend until smooth
3. Pour into a mug or bowl
4. Top with crumbled BLUE Santa Snacks Biscuits

Your pup-friendly gingerbread “latte” is ready! No need to call out an order number, as your lucky dog likely hasn’t left your side for a second. Just make sure you’ve explained your refill policy to your pup, because they’ll be pawing for more seasonal treats in no time.

You’ll want to use pure maple syrup that doesn’t contain the artificial sweetener xylitol, which can harm our furry family members. Crumbling BLUE Santa Snacks Biscuits on top provides a tasty crunch that your dog will surely love.

Note: This recipe is not recommended for dogs who have sensitivities to any of the ingredients listed. It does not contain milk, coffee, or caffeine. Please contact your veterinarian with any concerns and to make sure these ingredients are right for your dog.
