Quick and Easy Frozen Dog Treats for Summer, aka Copycat Frosty Paws

Homemade Frozen Dog Treats

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:

1 banana

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!

    Thanks for sharing this! Our pups love Frosty Paws but I have the same issue with the size ~ it’s too much at one time, but cutting it smaller or getting back if not made smaller is a pain! Love this size and the little dog biscuit handles. Pups are going to be #happygoggies this holiday :-) Bwg ~~~

    Thank you so much for the recipe. Love Chloe & Gracie!! They are both beautiful. I have a white westiepoo and she never looks as white & clean as Chloe & Gracie. I know she will love these frozen treats.

    The tiaras (seems to fit The Girls:@) are too cool! Cute pics and those treats sound pretty darn tasty to me too Mary! Happy 4th of July Weekend-enjoy:@)

    Frozen treats and dogie tiaras! I better not let Sadie see this post. She will be nudging me for the frozen treats for certain. The tiara, maybe not so much. ;-) Wish I could get her to wear one, but don’t think her soft, silky hair will hold it in place. Gracie and Chloe have the perfect coif. Happy 4th to you and those adorable girls.

    Every dog needs a tiara and a frozen treat with a dog biscuit stick! Holy Cuteness Mary, this is over the top adorable! Your girls seem very appreciative too! Could they be any cuter? Simply not possible! I want to come to your house for the 4th!

    What a wonderful, cool, refreshing treat for this super hot holiday. I put ice cube in my pup’s water, and she does appreciate it!!! Thanks for the cool recipe Love how the girls have their own picnic blanket, decked out with placemats and pillows, and how they are so cute together. It is always a joy to see someone love their fur babes like you do. So endearing, how you care for and enjoy them like you do
    It has been record breaking, three digits hot for the past couple weeks here in the Rocky Mountains of Utah. We have planned to go north in the summer to get a break from the heat, but were told it is 97 degrees at the ski resort in Sun Valley!! Hope you stay cool with the wine coolers this 4th, Cheers

    Oh my goodness, Chloe and Gracie look like they’re in puppy heaven licking those frosty paws. How cute they look with their neck scarves and headbands!!! What fun, Mary, those little pups are, and what a wonderful mom you are to them.

    I have a Bichon – names Irving White Lightening – he is the light of our lives – kids are all grown and moved away – I will try these snacks and see if the little bandit will eat them – thank you for the recipe

      If he’s like my girls he’ll be begging for more Lorraine, especially with the dog biscuit handle! Cute name! :)

    When I read your recipe I tried it and our Sophie loves it. I was tired of paying so much for frosty paws. My husband and I decided that if Sophie didn’t like it we would eat them. No chance. Sophie gobbled them down. Cherry g
