Frozen Dog Treats

It’s a dog themed kind of week, guys! I just published How To Keep Your Dog Cool In Summer and in it I suggested making your pup frozen treats as an additional way to keep him or her cool. Once we discovered our Doodle was an ice cube fiend I had a brain wave to combine his love of treats with his addiction to ice cubes! I’m going to share with you, the recipes our Dood loves.

If you are confused about what human food is safe for your dog to eat and what is harmful then run a quick search first. It’s better to be safe than sorry and I am not an expert. As far as pantry staples go, here’s a quick list of things you might already have that is a-ok to give to your dog!

  • Peanut Butter
  • Natural Yogurt
  • Carrots
  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple
  • Cantaloupe
  • Sweet Potato (cooked)

  1. To make Darby’s favorite frozen treats, pictured above, you will need a mold (or any ice cube tray). I like the silicon molds as they’re easy to extract the treats.
  2. Each treat is nothing but a Tbsp of natural yogurt combined with a Tbsp of peanut butter and added goodies, in this case banana and carrot.
  3. Layer the bottom of the shaped mold with your mixture then place diced banana (or carrot) on top, cover with another layer of peanut butter/yogurt mixture until shape is full.
  4. Set in the freezer for 5 or 6 hours.

If your pup has a sensitive stomach and can’t handle peanut butter then simply freeze some of the doggy approved fruits/snacks in water like a regular ice cube. He’ll appreciate the treat and the cool-down at the end of his hard work licking the ice!

Do you make your dog frozen treats in the summer time?

  1. These are seriously the cutest! I’m going to have to find a way to make homemade treats for my kitty, Iggy. I’m also going to send this article to my sister-in-law, she and my brother have two dogs who LOVE peanut butter and they live in FL, so this would be perfect for them!

  2. Okay so for one, I love your blogs and this is the first time reading it but my dog is literally my child. When I was living in the US I used to buy “pup cups” for my dog from our local dog bakery but since relocating to Saudi (which is not entirely dog friendly) there is no dog bakery. My pup doesn’t spend too much time outside because the weather is way too hot for him here but I will definitely be making some of these sweet treats for him, as he adores peanut butter and carrots!

    Thanks for sharing – I look forward to your future posts!

  3. Oh my goodness! My pup would absolutely love these! She loves carrots. I’ve never thought about giving her any bananas though!
