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.
2 apples – chopped in to chunks with seeds and cores removed. When using apples to make dog treats be sure to REMOVE all the seeds they are poisonous for dogs!
4 oz. fresh blueberries
1 large container of Strawberry Yogurt – we used Yoplait because I found it on sale at the grocery store, but you can use any brand.
12 styrofoam coffee cups
1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Spoon into coffee cups.
3. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
4. Peel off the cup and let your fur balls enjoy their icy treat.
Cannoli likes to lick her treats in the shade. It keeps her busy for about a half an hour.
