Different Ways to Make Frozen Dog Treats

These frozen dog treats are made with just three ingredients. But it’s easy to enhance them with other ingredients or swap out the banana for another fruit. Other dog-friendly fruits such as blueberries, strawberries or blackberries can be tossed into the mixture as well. Add in 3/4 cup of berries and blend them into the mixture.

If your dog isn’t a fan of bananas, that addition can left out. Ditch the fruit completely for a peanut butter-only version or replace the banana with berries or a few tablespoons of pumpkin.

The Best Peanut Butter for Homemade Dog Treats

This dog treat recipe uses healthy peanut butter in its base. When choosing peanut butter for dogs, be sure xylitol isn’t listed on the ingredients label. Xylitol is an artificial sweetener that is toxic to dogs.

How to Store Frozen Dog Treats

Once the dog treats are frozen, it’s best to store them in an airtight container in the freezer. Because there’s yogurt in these dog treats, they shouldn’t sit out for too long. Stored in the freezer, these dog treats will last for 3 months.
