These frozen treats are dog gone easy to make and healthy too. Only 2 ingredients and a blender required for these treats and your pup will beg for more!
Chloe and Gracie had a play date with their cousins, Maddie and Zoe, to celebrate the Red, White, and Blue!
Naturally Uncle Sam was the guest of honor.
🐾 Warning: photo heavy post ahead 🐾
I found two packs of hair bows and star-spangled head wraps at Walmart for $4. . .
Ideal for patriotic neckerchiefs for Gracie & Chloe. . .
And Maddie and Zoe are showing their patriotism with stars and stripes bandanas.
Don’t let Zoe’s sweet and innocent expression fool you. . .
She’s always on the move and stirring things up!
I made some easy frozen dogs treats to celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry! Blueberries and strawberries are as good for dogs as they are for people, full of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. Strawberries even contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog’s teeth.
Star-Spangled Frozen Berry Dog Treats
16 oz. *plain Greek or regular yogurt (*make sure your yogurt does not contain artificial sweeteners which harmful to dogs or added sugars, which they don’t need)
1 pint strawberries (if your berries are organic, use the whole berry, including the leaves. Strawberry leaves contain trace minerals and vitamins, such as iron, calcium and vitamin C)
Blueberries, 1 per star or ice cube
Place yogurt and strawberries in blender, blending until pureed. Pour berry yogurt mixture into mold or ice cube tray. Add a blueberry. Place in freezer until solid and pop out for a frozen dog treat. Dog Gone Easy!
I found a star silicone mold at Sur la Table on clearance and a set of smaller star molds on Amazon, more Maddie & Zoe-sized.
Your pup will lap these healthy dog treats up!
Frozen dog treats were new to Maddie and Zoe and they needed some encouragement at first. . .
Maddie gives these treats two paws up! 🐾
Warning: Chaos may ensue especially if you have a Chloe and a Zoe 🐾🐾
Chloe and Gracie say they’re not a young as they used to be and posing for photos and blogging is hard work. . .
