Frozen Dog Treat Recipe
This frozen dog treat recipe is so flexible. Don't have blueberries? That's ok, use another dog safe fruit like strawberries, small bites of apple or even shredded carrots!
If your dog needs to cut back on natural sugars, you can substitute the unsweetened applesauce with low sodium chicken broth. And if fruit isn't your dogs favorite, try sweet green peas instead.
I used a brownie pop mold tray I had on hand to make these berry treats. But you can use any type of ice cube tray, silicone mold tray or small compartment container you have available to make these treats.
I would love to make treats with one of these dog shaped trays from amazon, they're so cute and there is so much variety. I'd end up making regular ice for the two-legged family members, too. :)
Ok, let's get to the good stuff, the frozen dog treat recipe!
- 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2/3 cup water
- 40 blueberries or enough to fill each cup
- In a glass measuring cup with a spout, stir together the applesauce and water.
- Fill each cup of the silicone mold with blueberries. About 5 berries per cup.
- Pour the applesauce mixture evenly between all 8 cups.
- Place the silicone mold on a small baking sheet for stability, and place in the freezer.
- Freeze for about 3 to 4 hours, or until completely frozen.
- Let the pops sit out for about 5 minutes and then turn the mold upside down and gently push out the pops.
- Store them in the freezer for no longer than 6 months.
August Dog Events
August 6th -12th - International Assistance Dog Week - This event was created to recognize, honor and raise funds for the beautiful dogs that provide support, assistance and companionship to those with physical or mental limitations. It is also important to raise awareness for those who train and prepare the next generation of assistance dogs.
What can you do? Check out this list of Assistant Dog Week Event Ideas to help raise awareness and needed funds, and have fun at the same time.
August 26th - National Dog Day - Here at DogTreatKitchen.com, every day is Dog Day! But, the 26th is an extra special day for everyone else. :) I think days like this are a time to reflect and actually thank your dog for everything he or she does for you. Think about it, does your dog greet you happily every time you come home?
Does your dog cuddle up next to you, even if you just got back from the gym and are a little stinky? Does your dog do the happy dance when you give her that extra special homemade dog treat?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, take a moment to truly appreciate your dog and his role in your life. Then head over to the National Dog Day website for more ideas on how to celebrate this special day.
