  • Mustard greens
  • Collard greens
  • Strawberries
  • Cooked squash
  • 20-30 medium-sized phoenix worms
  • Bee pollen
  • Multivitamins
  • Water


  1. Cut up all your greens, veggies, and strawberry.  
  2. Cook the squash. 
  3. Put everything in a jug. 
  4. Thrown in 20-30 medium-sized phoenix worms. 
  5. Add a tiny amount of bee pollen, multivitamin. 
  6. Finally, add ¼ cup of water.  
  7. Grind the salad just enough that your mixture stays thick and no clumps are left. 
  8. Take a 3 ml syringe and fill it with the slurry. 
  9. Feed the slurry to your bearded dragon from the syringe.

You can customize the slurry recipe based on your bearded dragon’s age.

If he is still young add more feeders to meet the protein requirement. If he’s an adult make the slurry more plant-based!  

The slurry is a great way to feed bearded dragons that are very picky with their food.

Syringe feeding should never be the first go-to if your bearded dragon stops eating, though. Consult your vet and check as there might be an underlying health issue.

It all started with Winchester, a baby bearded who was abandoned at the shelter by his former owners because of a birth defect that caused one front leg to be shorter than the other. Alina originally went to the shelter looking for a guinea pig, but one look at Winchester and it was love at first sight. From that day on, Alina has dedicated her life to learning everything she can about bearded dragons. She loves helping new beardie parents start their incredible journey with these magnificent reptiles.
