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.

Ingredients:

Makes 6 full coffee cups

2 apples – cut in cubes, all seeds removed

1/2 fresh blueberries

3 cups low sodium chicken broth

Directions:

Doggie Icy Pops

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.

DIY Berries & Apples Frozen Doggie Treat

Summer has been pretty hot this year, specially for Cannoli, our year old Siberian Husky.  I’m sure she gets quite hot under all that fur.

To keep her cool and comfy we’ve been making her frozen doggie treats.  She just loves them!

The treats are so easy to make the kids can make them.  Last week my 7 year old grandson Devon mixed up a batch for her.  It took him about half an hour to mix them, but that’s because he kept eating the ingredients!  That’s the great part about these doggie treats, they’re made with fresh ingredients that even humans love.

For this batch of frozen dog treats Devon mixed up chunks of green apples, fresh blueberries, and strawberry yogurt, all of them his favorites and Cannoli’s faves too!

We freeze the treats in styrofoam coffee cups.  You can fill up the cups as much or as little as you like to fit your pup’s appetite.  Just peel the cups off the frozen treats when you want to give them to your pet.

Here’s Devon’s recipe, make some for your fur balls today!  The recipe yields 12 half filled cups.

DIY Berries & Apples Frozen Doggie Treat
