It’s gettin’ hot out there! The past few days have been around 90°F – phew! I know if I’m hot, then my pup is hot, too. I wanted to make him something simple and yummy to help keep him cool during these kinds of days. And these blueberry yogurt dog treats are the perfect snack!
With just 3 ingredients and 1 bowl, you can throw these together in no time. The longest part is waiting for them to set enough so you can pop them out of the molds. Let’s get into making them!
Before trying out these or any other recipes, please consult with your vet.
Greek Yogurt – This is higher in protein, which means it’s better for your dog. Full or reduced fat are both fine. Unlike in baking, I wouldn’t substitute this with regular yogurt or sour cream.
Peanut Butter – A well-known dog (and human) favorite. Any time I bust out a jar of PB, Toby comes running to lick the spoon. I recommend using creamy peanut butter, since the chunky kind can present some choking hazards. Please, please, please check the ingredient list of your peanut butter! Some may contain xylitol, which is toxic to both dogs and cats.
Blueberries – If you don’t have blueberries or your dog doesn’t like them, try this with some cut up strawberries, blackberries or raspberries!
You can visit the bark-ery homepage for a list of common ingredients, and whether they’re safe to give your fur baby!
If you already have some on hand, use those! If you want some cute dog-themed molds, I would give these a try. They’re the ones I have, and it’s a nice way to do something that’s not bone shaped.
No matter the shape, I really would recommend using a mold similar to this. They can bend and peel away from the frozen contents, which makes getting these out a breeze without having to spray with oil. If you don’t have one, you could try making these in ice cube trays and lightly grease them with coconut oil to make removal easier.
Your dog is sure to love these little frozen treats! Since they’re only 3 ingredients, you can be sure these aren’t bad for them. Yummy and healthy is a win-win!
Whip up these easy blueberry yogurt dog treats, and let me know how your pup liked them! Tag me on instagram @fg_bakes or hashtag #forgoodnessbakes .
