Recipe: Blueberry Banana Frozen Dog Treats

Your dog deserves REAL food too!

This past weekend we celebrated our dog’s 8th birthday. I know—we’re a little crazy about Katie. 🙂 While I can promise you there wasn’t a full-blown party, we did commemorate Katie’s birthday by making homemade, frozen dog treats.

Why homemade? Well, as I’ve shared before, many of the store-bought dog treats are filled with unhealthy additives and highly processed ingredients. This is especially true for frozen dog treats like Frosty Paws. Although we don’t give Katie treats very often, we believe they should be made from real food. After all, we want Katie to live a long, healthy life and believe she deserves REAL food too. 🙂

But before you think we’re totally insane, look how easy these frozen dog treats are to make. Made with THREE ingredients (yogurt, a banana, and frozen blueberries) that are puréed in a blender, these frozen dog treats take less than 5 minutes to prepare. Then just freeze them for an hour, and you’re all set.

These three ingredient frozen dog treats are the perfect way to celebrate or reward your special pooch. Made with yogurt, blueberries, and a banana, you can whip these treats up in less than 5 minutes, freeze, and share!

And if you want to go all out, decorate these frozen dog treats with a dab of yogurt, a slice of banana, and some blueberries. Honestly, they look and taste so good, you’ll be tempted to eat them for dessert (and you totally can—yes, they’re that good and good for you!)

These three ingredient frozen dog treats are the perfect way to celebrate or reward your special pooch. Made with yogurt, blueberries, and a banana, you can whip these treats up in less than 5 minutes, freeze, and share!

So get out your blender and whip up a batch of these amazing frozen dog treats. I promise you—that special, furry, four-legged member of your family will be wagging his or her tail even more when you serve up one of these treats!

Cheers!

Note: Although most dogs can eat regular plain yogurt, some dogs are lactose intolerant and may experience digestion problems. If that's the case for your dog, feel free to substitute a non-dairy yogurt or milk product. Also, make sure to never use artificially sweetened yogurt with your dog since some artificial sweeteners (xylitol) are poisonous to dogs.
