SSG Veggie Relish
The SSG Veggie Relish Recipe for sugar gliders can be used
in place of the vegetable portion of the diet. It was
designed by Misty at Sweet Sugar Gliders, to work with the
Diet. Click here for
the SSG Complete HPW Diet. Our intention was to make it
easy for glider owners. By not spending so much time
calculating ratios, you are now freed up to spend more time
with your sugar gliders. We do not claim to be nutritionists.
We simply strive to do the best we know how for our sugar
gliders (based on the research we have done) and wanted to pass
along the information.
SSG Veggie Relish Recipe
This recipe will make around 40 servings for 2 sugar
- 1 cup frozen vegetable mix of peas, green beans,
carrots, & corn
- 1 cup jicama
- 1 cup sweet potato
- 4 cups turnip greens

jicama. Poke holes into the sweet potato with a fork and

little (so it will freeze together in the ice cube trays).
Scoop the veggie relish mixture into ice cube trays
(measure one TABLEspoon per cube). Cover and freeze. Once
frozen, run hot water over the bottom of the ice cube
trays, pop the vegetable mixture out and place the
cubes in a freezer container or Ziplock freezer bag. This
will prevent freezer burn.

veggies, you can try blending them with a blender (instead
