DIY Frozen Treats for Your Pets

We’re in the “dog days” of summer, and nothing beats the heat like a cool treat. Don’t forget your favorite furry friend when it comes to frozen goodies! Here are a few DIY treats you can quickly whip up for your pet.

Popsicles aren’t just for kids

A quick note here about popsicle treats. Never use real popsicle sticks – your pet could chew on them and choke! Use a Milk-Bone or other safe, edible alternative.

Be sure to serve these frozen delights on plates or in bowls. Trust us, you don’t want a trail of food bits all over your house.

For the Kitties

Tuna Ice Cube Tray Treats

What you’ll need:

  • Half cup of water
  • Can of tuna (water-packed works best)
  • Mixing bowl or blender
  • Ice cube tray

Now you can:

  1. Put tuna in bowl or blender. Add water, then mix.
  2. Pour mixture into ice cube tray.
  3. Freeze and enjoy.

For the Pups

Peanut Butter and Blueberry Popsicles

What you’ll need:

  • Frozen blueberries
  • Yogurt (plain)
  • Milk-Bone treats (medium-sized)
  • Peanut butter
  • Popsicle molds or paper cups (small)

Now you can:

  1. Put a few scrapes of peanut butter in each mold or cup.
  2. Add some yogurt.
  3. Top each one off with a few blueberries.
  4. Fill in with water.
  5. Add Milk-Bone treats to act as popsicle sticks.
  6. When ready to eat, let the molds or cups sit out for a few minutes. Gently remove the popsicles and enjoy.

If you don’t have any peanut butter in the house, or somebody in your family has a peanut allergy, fear not. Here’s a tasty alternative.

Apple Slice and Chicken Broth Popsicles

  • Apple
  • Half cup of chicken broth (unsalted)

Now you can:

  1. Mix water and chicken broth in measuring cup.
  2. After washing, cut apple into small pieces.
  3. Put a few apple pieces in each cup, then fill in half of each cup with broth.

  5. Once a treat is frozen, gently remove it from the paper cup and enjoy.
