3 Frozen Dog Treat Recipes
When the summer heat becomes relentless, it’s not just us humans who seek refuge from the scorching temperatures; our pets often need a break too. We understand the importance of keeping your dog cool and comfortable during hot weather. Frozen dog treats can be a fantastic way to help your canine companion beat the heat while indulging in tasty flavors.
Below we’re sharing three simple yet tasty recipes you can follow at home to help keep your dog cool and refreshed all summer long.
Bone Broth Pupsicles
Just as many humans relish in the refreshing taste of an ice-cold popsicle, many dogs also enjoy cooling down with this popular summer treat. Bone Broth Pupsicles are a great way to help keep your dog hydrated while providing a yummy snack.
- 4 tbs of Nature’s Logic Bone Broth
- 16 oz of water
- Clean silicone popsicle mold
Mix 4 tbs of Nature’s Logic Bone Broth with 16 oz of warm water. Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold and place it in the freezer until the Pupsicles are frozen (usually around two hours).
Bone broth isn’t just a trending superfood for humans; it’s also incredibly beneficial for our pets. Packed with minerals, amino acids, glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfate, bone broth can support your dog’s overall health. Our dehydrated bone broth makes it simple to integrate into both your dog and cat’s diets and is available in multiple protein options, including beef, chicken, pork and turkey.
Frozen Pumpkin Treats
When you think of pumpkin foods, you likely imagine pumpkin pies and spiced lattes. However, pumpkin is an incredibly versatile ingredient that can be included in your pet’s diet year-round. Frozen pumpkin dog treats are a great way to add this healthy ingredient to your dog’s diet when they’re craving something cold or when you’re looking to help cool them down.
However, it’s important to note that not all pumpkin products are safe for pets. Canned pumpkin pie, for example, should be avoided entirely since it contains added ingredients that can be harmful for your dog. Instead, opt for canned products that explicitly state that they are only made with all natural pumpkin, like Nature’s Logic 100% pumpkin purée.
Pour Nature’s Logic Pumpkin Purée into a clean ice cube tray or treat mold and top each treat with a Nature’s Logic Biscuit with Benefits. Place the treats in a freezer until they’re frozen (about two hours). Remember, treats should make up only 10% of your pet’s daily calories, so don’t give into puppy eyes when your dog starts begging for more.
Including pumpkin in your dog’s diet can provide your pup with a range of health benefits. Rich in fiber, this colorful fruit promotes healthy digestion and supports regular bowel movements. Additionally, pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A and zinc, to support your dog’s immune system and their skin and coat health.
Frozen Peanut Butter Treats
Nothing gets most dogs’ tails wagging quite like peanut butter does. Mix up their peanut butter treat routine by offering them this super simple frozen treat instead.
Like pumpkin, not all peanut butter is safe for dogs. When choosing peanut butter for your pet, look for a product that’s all natural with no artificial ingredients or added sweeteners. Nature’s Logic Peanut Butter is crafted with peanuts, chia seeds, and coconut oil, ensuring your dog gets a nutritious snack that’s canine-safe.
- 1 banana
- 4 tablespoons of Nature’s Logic Peanut Butter
- 12 oz of plain Greek yogurt with no added sugar
- Clean ice cube tray
Mix the banana, Nature’s Logic Peanut Butter, and plain yogurt in a blender until the mixture is smooth. Use a spoon to place the mixture into a clean ice cube tray or treat mold. Place the treats in the freezer until they’re frozen (about two hours).
Peanut butter is a tasty treat that packs a nutritional punch. This creamy spread is a good source of protein, healthy fats, and essential vitamins for your dog.
The Ingredients You Need For Your Dog’s New Favorite Treats
Keeping your dog cool and refreshed during the summer is essential for their health, and frozen dog treats are a tasty way to help them beat the heat. The recipes above provide your pup with an indulgent snack as well as a range of health benefits. We recommend having an ice cube tray or popsicle mold that is dedicated to your dogs (to make yummy treats like these) and to store them seperately from other kitchen utensils used for human food preperation.
