Chloe and Gracie have some frozen dog treats to share that are quick and easy to make this summer!
And so good your 4-legged friends will be begging for more!
I found variations of this copycat recipe for Frosty Paws on Pinterest. When I buy Frosty Paws, the serving size is larger than I like to give Chloe and Gracie, so I only let them eat half at a time before wrestling the container away to put back in the freezer and save for another day.
I made these frozen treats in ice cubes trays for smaller size treats, but you can customize them for the size of your dog. Freeze your treats in a muffin pan, small paper cups, or plastic containers.
To make these frozen dog treats you’ll need:
32 oz. plain yogurt, Greek or regular, unsweetened
(I used Greek yogurt so the mixture was thicker and the mini dog biscuit would stand up as a handle)
2 heaping tablespoons of *peanut butter
*make sure your peanut butter does not contain Xylitol, a natural sugar alcohol sweetener which is harmful to dogs
You can vary these ingredients~ add an additional banana, more peanut butter, pumpkin puree, or leftover cooked oatmeal. Just make sure your yogurt does not contain artificial sweeteners (harmful to dogs) or added sugars.
Place all your ingredients in the blender or food processor and puree them.
Place in your containers and allow them to freeze solid.
When ready to serve, pop them out of your trays or peel the paper off your cups. The dog biscuit makes a convenient and tasty handle to pull the frozen treats out of the trays.
While your pups are eating, sneak up and place a dollar store headband on them, so they’re too distracted to shake it off :)
These frozen treats are messy so you’ll want to give them to your dogs outdoors or where it’s easy to clean up.
Chloe’s official stamp of approval :)
Chloe and Gracie hope you enjoy some delicious treats this July 4th weekend!
