Easy Frozen Dog Treat Recipe with Yogurt and Berries
Yogurt Cubes with Blueberry Accents
When it’s hot out, you don’t want to turn on the oven and bake dog treats (or anything else...)
Here’s an easy frozen dog treat recipe you can put together in less than 10 minutes!
¼ cup of blueberries*
1 cup of plain yogurt
Rinse the blueberries and drop them into the bottom of an ice cube tray. One to two berries per cube. Spoon yogurt on top of the berries. Each cube will take about a tablespoon, but you don’t have to measure. If it’s a bit under, that’s fine, especially, for smaller dogs.
Nestle another berry or two into the yogurt at the top as an accent.
Pop the ice cube tray into the freezer.
Let freeze 1.5 to 2 hours.
After an hour and a half, the yogurt will have “set” but it’ll still be easy to get out of the trays. (Use a butter knife to pry around the edges).
You might want to take them all out and store them in a ziploc bag at this point. They get more difficult to pry out of the container after about 12 hours.
Presto! An easy frozen dog treat recipe.
*You could use any berries. I happened to have blueberries. If you have large strawberries, cut them in half or even quarters before you put them in the ice cube tray.
Other ideas: You could add a sprinkle of flaxseeds to each ice cube compartment if you wanted to increase your dog’s omega 3 quotient.
