Frozen Treats

Dog Eating Ice Cream

Most, if not all, dogs are lactose intolerant and their tummies cannot handle human ice cream due to high fat, sugar and a number of other questionable ingredients.  Here is a short compilation of some yummy delights that will be sure to please your pup, especially on a hot summer day.

Start off with some low- or non-fat, plain yogurt with active cultures.  Dependent upon the amount you would like to make, each recipe can be adjusted accordingly.  Note that you can freeze in ice cube trays, plastic cups, or any other container you wish.

All recipes are quite easy combining all ingredients in bowl (or food processor to puree the sweet potatoes, hot dog, etc.).  Fill your desired container and freeze.

Enjoy!

Remember, all of these recipes can be placed in whatever container you want and frozen for a fun snack.  Kongs are great to fill and freeze giving your dog an opportunity to work at what’s inside.

There are so many different variations you can make.  Try adding other pureed fruits and veggies to the yogurt such as apples, pears, melon, blueberries, etc.  Just make sure the food is safe for canine consumption and use your imagination.
