It’s shaping up to be a very hot summer. To keep Cannoli, our Siberian Husky, cool and comfy this summer we’ve been making her frozen dog treats.
They are so simple to make, they not only keep her cool, they keep her busy for almost an hour!
For these treats I used apples and blueberries I had in the fridge and low sodium chicken broth I had in the pantry. Really you can use your pooch’s favorite fruits and veggies or whatever you have at home as long as they are dog friendly. Don’t use onions, grapes, and if using apples be sure you remove the seeds, they are some foods toxic to pets. For a list of foods that can be poisonous to pets click here to be taken to the Humane Society list.
I freeze my treats in styrofoam coffee cups (but you can use paper cups, ice cube trays, or silicone molds), I just peel away the cup when I give Cannoli the treat. It’s a great in expensive way to make and store the frozen treats. You can portion out the treats to fit your pet’s needs. I make mine fairly large and fill the cup, she’s a good size pup! I’d limit these treats to once a day as it does contain some sodium, which is a great way to spice up kibble and keep dog hydrated but too much salt is not good for your pet.
Makes 6 full coffee cups
2 apples – cut in cubes, all seeds removed
1/2 fresh blueberries
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
Distribute fruits into 6 styrofoam coffee cups.
Pour desired amount of chicken broth into cups. Fruit floats to the top.
Freeze for at least 6 hours.
Peel off cup when ready to give your pet the treat.

These are the 9 Round-ups of Frozen Dog Treats! Enjoy!!!
For my first foray into the frozen dog treat world, I used ingredients I already had in my fridge, in this case, leftover Greek yogurt from my chicken souvlaki marinade I made for last Sunday’s barbecue night and fresh blueberries left over from my fruit-filled ice pops and Red, White & Blueberry Popsicles.
Our Siberian Huskie puppy loves treats. She expects treats whenever she listens to a command to sit, stay, and shake. We go thru a lot of treats!
Recently we went to Petco to buy more treats, we usually buy the bulk biscuits from the treat bar. The price had gone up to over $6 a pound. The pre-packaged ones were more expensive, even those on sale. The “organic” treats were in my opinion ridiculously priced, over $10 for a 6 oz. bag.
I found a recipe online for easy baked dog treats, I tweaked it to suit our needs, adding flax seed meal which is said to be healthy for dogs and good for their skin and coats.
Here is the recipe I ended up with Cannoli loves them! It uses just 3 ingredients and can be made in different flavors, I used sweet potato and apple/blueberry, her favorites!
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seed meal
4 oz. jar of strained baby food (any flavor works as long as it doesn’t have garlic and onions)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
1. Measure the flour and flax seed meal to equal 1 cup.
2. Mix dry ingredients with one 4 oz. jar of baby food in a mixing bowl. Knead until you have a ball of dough. If it’s too loose add flour a little bit at a time until you have the right consistency.
3. Place ball of dough on lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/4″-1/2″ thickness
4. Cut into desired shape with a cookie cutter or use a pizza cutter to cut squares
5. Place on to parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 mins.
6. Remove from oven and cool. Store in airtight container.
