Making Your Own Frozen Dog Treats

A Frozen Refreshment Your Pup Will Go Mutts For

I remember the first time I spotted “doggie ice cream” in the store. I thought, “Well, that’s just ridiculous!” But then I started to think about it – my dog, Coupon, absolutely loves playing with ice cubes and goes crazy for peanut butter. So I found myself standing in Petco one day, paying more for ice cream for my dog than I do for my own sweet treats. Needless to say, this wasn’t going to be a sustainable solution.

After looking at the ingredients, I realized how easy it would be to make my own frozen dog treats at home. And the best part? I only needed 4 simple ingredients that I already had stocked in my kitchen!

Homemade Happiness in a Frozen Treat

I decided to use some dog-themed silicone molds because I wanted to make sure anyone opening the freezer would know these were treats for the pup, not the humans. Not that they taste bad or anything, but there’s almost no sweetness to them. Anyone expecting a sugary dessert is going to be seriously disappointed!

Coupon is only about 14 pounds, but I have a few larger furry friends that I make these for as well. For the bigger dogs, I just use a regular ice cube tray instead of the smaller molds. If you have a petite pup like mine, you may want to consider cutting the recipe in half – you’ll still end up with around 50 bite-sized treats!

A Cool Treat for a Hot Day

Now, I know what you’re thinking – “But I’m not a dog mom, why would I care about making frozen dog treats?” Well, let me tell you, these little frozen delights aren’t just for the pups. They’re a great way to cool down on a hot summer day, and they’re healthy enough that you could even sneak one for yourself (though I wouldn’t recommend trying to pass them off as human ice cream!).

Plus, making these homemade treats is way cheaper than buying the pre-made stuff from the pet store. And you know exactly what’s going into them – no mystery ingredients or preservatives. Just simple, wholesome components that are good for your dog’s tummy.

An Easy Recipe for Canine Joy

Okay, are you ready to learn how to whip up these frozen dog treats? It couldn’t be simpler. I just used my KitchenAid with the flat beater to mix everything together, but if you don’t have a stand mixer, you can easily mash the bananas with a fork and then stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredient Amount
Ripe bananas 2
Peanut butter 1/2 cup
Plain, unsweetened yogurt 1 cup
Blueberries (fresh or frozen) 1 cup

Just blend it all up, pour into your molds, and pop them in the freezer. In a few hours, you’ll have a delicious, healthy frozen treat that your dog (and maybe even you!) will go mutts for.

I’ve never met a dog that didn’t love these homemade frozen treats, and I know your furry friend will be no exception. They’re the perfect way to beat the heat and show your pup a little extra love. So what are you waiting for? Get to blending!

Bonus Tip: Freeze for Freshness

One last pro-tip – I like to freeze my homemade treats in individual servings. That way, I can just grab one or two at a time and let them thaw for a bit before giving them to Coupon. They’ll keep in the freezer for up to 3 months this way.

Just pile the frozen treats into a ziplock bag or other airtight container, and you’ve got a ready-to-go frozen snack on hand whenever your pup needs a quick cool-me-down. No more melty, watery messes to worry about!

So there you have it – your new go-to recipe for making your own delicious, dog-approved frozen treats. Your pup is going to be your new best friend (even more than they already are) when they realize you’ve got a freezer stocked with these icy goodies. Enjoy!
