    Hopefully they ate some while I was sleeping, but it doesn't look like it!

    Awww well its so sweet you made some for them to try anyway! :D

    I guess they just like their banana and berries in their natural shapes! Sans ice.

    I'll be happy to take those smoothies if they don't want them. I love cold things. :p

    I have heard that "dairy" is not very good for hermit crabs. . .

    A lot of hermies like it, but it could only be fed maximum once a month. :) It's good for them once in a while.

    Yes, I know a lot of hermies enjoy dairy products, but it is just not healthy for them. . .

    It's only unhealthy if you feed it to them a lot. Milk is a great source of calcium, and calcium is a very important part of a hermit crab's diet.

    I never really thought about that... maybe I should feed some milk to my crabs some time.

    If you put fruits in a blender their own natural juices will be enough to make it a smoothie constancy without adding any dairy Bananas will give it the creamy aspect.

    Peanut butter (not regular peanut butter, but the organic no salt added kind) can be used for creaminess as well.

    As for the dairy, crabs can have dairy, but as it is not something they eat normally in the wild it should be fed less often. It won't make them sick or anything like that, but my guys haven't liked any of the cheese I've tried offering them.

    I crush them and give them pieces. I also mixed some in when I made scrambled eggs for the crabs. I also make sure that I clean them - whether it's rinsing them off and microwaving for a few seconds to kill germs or using shells from hard-boiled eggs, I don't want to introduce salmonella into my tank!

    That statement is very true. . . I suppose dairy is okay, if given in small ammounts to your hermit crabs. . .;););)
