What’s To Love About Frozen Strawberry Banana Dog Treats
My pup loves frozen dog treats and I do too! Not only are they much quicker to make than baked dog treats, they have a lot less ingredients, which is a good thing if your pup has a sensitive stomach.
Many dogs are intolerant to wheat – not allergic, but just not quite right in the tummy when they eat a lot of food containing wheat or gluten.
So if this sounds like your pup, frozen treats for dogs are the way to go.
These healthy frozen dog treats with strawberries and banana are perfect as a reward for good behaviour or as a daily treat.
They are also great for teaching puppies how to eat frozen treats from a kong. Pop a couple in a kong and they will soon work out how to enjoy frozen kong treats!
Ingredient List For Strawberry Banana Flavored Dog Treats
To make strawberry and banana dog treats you will need:
- Plain Greek or natural yogurt (or kefir)
- Ripe banana
- Cooked oatmeal (optional)
- Ice cube mold
As you can see, the ingredient list is short and sweet – they are super easy frozen dog treats to make at home.
You may be wondering why cooked oatmeal is listed as an optional ingredient. Well the treats can be made with or without oatmeal.
Oatmeal banana dog treats are denser and a more substantial treat with a higher calorie count. It is a great way to use up leftover breakfast oatmeal instead of throwing it away.
Note the oatmeal must be plain (not flavored) and cooked – do not use raw oatmeal.
But you can also make the treats without the oatmeal, and they will have a similar flavor to this yogurt strawberry dog treats recipe.
You can use any type of ice cube tray to make frozen diy dog treats.
I like silicone molds as the treats are really easy to remove and these long and skinny water bottle molds are perfect if you want to use these treats for frozen kong dog treats.
They slide into the kong perfectly, unlike other fun paw print molds.Click here to see the range and check the price on Amazon.
How To Make Frozen Banana Strawberry Dog Treats
In a blender add the strawberries, banana, yogurt and cooked oatmeal (if using).
Blend until smooth.
Tip: Place your silicone molds on a baking tray. This makes it easier to transport the mold to the freezer once filled.
Pour the frozen yogurt dog treats mixture into the ice cube molds and place the molds in the freezer overnight.
Once firm pop the frozen treats out of the mold and serve a few to your pup!
How To Serve Frozen Berry Dog Treats
My dog loves to eat frozen strawberry yogurt dog treats as they are, straight from my hand.
When she was a pup I would pop a couple in a kong for her to enjoy. You could also combine them with other ingredients to make tasty frozen kong fillers.
Another option is to throw a couple in their food bowl as a topper for their evening meal.
How To Store Homemade Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats
Frozen fruit dog treats need to be stored in the freezer. You can place them in an airtight container or a sealed zip lock bag.
Treats will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months but they are unlikely to last that long.
I like to have a few different flavors in the freezer at any one time, so I can rotate them. See more frozen dog treats recipes here.
