Homemade Frozen Dog Treats

Why spend the money at the store to buy your dog frozen treats when you can make them at home. Make these homemade treats for your best friend to enjoy during the dog days of summer. Enjoy!

Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Treats

1-32 oz container of vanilla yogurt
1 cup peanut butter

Place the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish. Place in the microwave and heat the peanut butter until it has melted. Mix with the yogurt, pour into cupcake papers and freeze.

Puppy Pops

1 cube low sodium chicken or beef bouillon
1 cup water
4 small pieces of chicken, turkey or beef

Dissolve the bouillon in water and tear meat into 1/2 inch squares. Mix together and freeze overnight.

Doggie Fruit Bars

1 mashed banana
1/2 cup yogurt
1 quart fruit juice (NOT grape)

Stir together the ingredients and then freeze over night. People enjoy these too. :)

Peanut Butter Doggie Ice Cream

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup carob chips
32 oz plain low fat yogurt

-Divide the yogurt between a 6 cup muffin tin.
-Into a small bowl pour the peanut butter.
-Use a double-boiler to slowly melt the carob chips.
-Pour the melted carob chips into the peanut butter and stir to combine.
-Pour a spoonful of the mixture onto the yogurt in the muffin cups. Use a toothpick to swirl the peanut butter mixture into the yogurt.
-Freeze until solid.

Will keep for about 2 months in the freezer...if they last that long. :)
