These goodies are not only super-easy to make, but they’re also healthy—for you and your dog. You know, in case you’re tempted to sample one.
1. PB & Fruit Ice Dog Treat
This one is fun because it’s not just a frozen dog treat, but it’s also a clever game.
Blend together peanut butter and water, pour into a bundt cake pan (we prefer silicone), then sprinkle in flax seeds and mixed berries. Freeze, then toss on the lawn for the dog to gnaw on! At last, it’s appropriate to play with your food.
2. Peanut Butter Pup-sicles
What happens when you mix a cup of peanut butter, half a mashed ripe banana and a splash of water, scoop it like cookie dough, and freeze? Magical frozen treats, that’s what. Pop ’em in the freezer for a few hours, and you’ve got yourself a salty-sweet frozen treat that dogs and humans alike will love.
Try a paw print or bone-shaped mold for added cuteness.
3. Frozen Yogurt–Dipped Strawberries
This is literally the easiest frozen dog treat of all time. Are you ready for it? Fresh strawberries (with the greens cut off, of course), dipped in plain yogurt. That’s it!
Use a fork to do the dipping, then lay on parchment paper and freeze. So simple and so, so good.
4. Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treats
Some people think pumpkin should be saved for September–November only. For shame, we say! Pumpkin is good all year round, especially when you blend a can of it with a cup of yogurt, a teaspoon of honey and a banana, then spoon into ice trays (another great opportunity to level up your cuteness with some dog-themed silicone molds).
Plus, pumpkin is good for your dog’s digestive tract. Can’t go wrong with that.
5. Frozen Apple Dog Treat
While we’re on the topic of fall flavors, let’s throw a frozen apple dog treat into the mix, shall we?
This one’s pretty easy — slice two apples, ditching the seeds and the core, then chop up and throw in a blender. Add a cup of plain Greek yogurt and a splash of water, then blend, pour in an ice tray, freeze, and enjoy!
6. Peanut Butter + Jam Freezies
7. Frosty Paws
Banana + yogurt + frozen berries? Count us in.
8. Watermelon Dog Treat
NOTHING says summer like watermelon (seriously, can you think of anything more summer?), and the good news is, dogs love it just as much as humans do. This recipe from popular blog “Gone to the Snow Dogs” (click link for a video, as well) is divine. Puree watermelon, unsweetened coconut milk or coconut water, and honey, pour into an ice tray, and voila!
All the deliciousness without all the hard work. Step up your game with a watermelon ice cube tray.
