DIY Frozen Dog Treats…

Meet my dog Charlie. He loves treats! Here’s a recipe for a special treat we make for him. If you try them I hope your fur babies love them, too!

What’s great about these treats is how simple they are to make and store. They require minimal and completely natural ingredients, can be made in large batches to store in a freezer bag.

You’ll need plain organic Greek yogurt, natural peanut butter, an ice tray, and a spoon. I used a silicone ice tray.

Spoon a small amount of peanut butter into the base of the ice tray. You can heat up the peanut butter first to make it easier (and not so messy) to spoon in. The more you add, the thicker the top layer on the treats will appear.

Next, dollop heaping spoonfuls of the yogurt to cover the peanut butter in each mold. Press yogurt down into the molds using the back of your spoon to make sure they’re packed. This will help seal the peanut butter and yogurt together in the final treat. You can even gently “drop” the tray a few times in order to encourage further settling. If you have excess yogurt in any of the molds, gently level with a spatula to the mold and put into the freezer for at least 4 hours.
Once frozen, remove tray and pop out individual frozen treats! 

And for anyone wondering — while I made these as pet treats, they could easily be made for a protein-packed people snack. Sweeten them up by tossing a few in a bowl with drizzled honey.

  1. I’ve got three furry friends…sometimes four when mum’s come to visit, so an easy to make (and in bulk) treat would be great and save me some pennies I’m sure! Just checking though…are these ingredients ok for dogs? I though dairy wasn’t so good for them.

    1. I did research it and most vets say it’s okay as an occasional treat. It’s usually not harmful yet neither is it beneficial.

      You should use the plain Greek yogurt…no artificial flavoring or added sugars.

      Charlie hasn’t had any trouble when he consumes them, but I only give him one as a special treat once in awhile.

      Hope that helps a little.😊
