Ice Cube Trays
Yogurt: Plain, Vanilla, or fruit on the bottom flavors (do not use fat free as they all use artificial sweeteners)
Fruit: apple, banana, berries, pineapple, coconut, melons (No GRAPES or RAISINS)
Cinnamon
Optional honey as a sweetener if using plain yogurt as your base


* You can use water for dogs who don’t do well with milk products


 

The quick and easy version is to scoop the already flavored yogurt into the ice cube tray. I like using different shapes the puzzle pieces are easier for the dog to grip onto but you can use any shape you happen to have around the house. If you don’t have ice cube trays you can use small paper cups just spray the inside of the cup with cooking spray to help keep everything from getting stuck. Tap the tray on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles and put into the freezer to fully set. If you are using plain yogurt you can mix in a little bit of honey to make the yogurt sweeter.

The next version requires a little more work in the form of cutting up little pieces of fruit into the yogurt and sprinkling it with cinnamon and mixing it all together before spooning it into your ice cube tray. Feel free to use any fruit or combination of fruits your dog enjoys. Tap the tray on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles and put into the freezer to fully set.

The final version is more like a smoothie then frozen yogurt. With this version you add a lot of fruit and blend it all up so that it is smooth and pourable. I like to add cinnamon to the mixture. If you want to make this an extra special treat you can add some peanut butter for protein before blending. Pour the mixture into your trays.

 

 

In terms of serving size I broke the puzzle piece in half so the girls only had a half of one at a time so their tongues didn’t get too cold and their stomachs would get upset. The yogurt cubes are not as solid as frozen water so you can easily cut them in half for a better size if needed.

*Do not use chocolate or coffee flavor yogurt when making these for your dogs.

    Yum! It’s to cold for pupsicles here now, but in the winter I like to make chicken paste cubes and put them in a little warm chicken stock to thaw…the boys get the fun of ice cubes and the warming effect of the stock. I bet yogurt would be tasty for this too!
