{RECIPE} Easy Neapolitan Frozen Yogurt Summer Dog Treats

Homemade layered Neapolitan (strawberry, carob, plain) frozen yogurt dog treats

Tomorrow is the first official day of summer here (although it feels more like hot chocolate weather today), and we're sneaking in a quick and cool summer treat to celebrate. We'll be back tomorrow to begin our December Barkmas Bonanza with a Christmas post every weekday until we begin our holidays. Woofs!

Easy Neapolitan Frozen Yogurt Summer Dog Treats

🥄 Treat Ingredients:

Plain low-fat yogurt
Carob powder

Scale the volumes to suit the size of your mold or ice cube tray.

🥄 Making the Treats: 

White/Vanilla: Spoon 1/3 of your plain yogurt  into your mold or ice cube tray, covering the bottom of each shape/mold to approximately 1/3 of the volume. Freeze until firm.

Brown/Chocolate:  Add a small amount of carob powder to 1/3 of  your yogurtLayer on top of your frozen plain layer. Freeze until firm.

Red/Strawberry: Mash strawberries and mix to combine with 1/3 of your yogurt (or use a pre-flavoured dog-safe yogurt). Layer on top of your frozen plain and chocolate layers. Freeze until completely firm before removing from the mold/tray. Store frozen and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:
  • We use low fat / low sugar yogurt. Go natural or take care when when shopping to avoid artificial sweeteners in ingredients used for your dogs - xylitol is particularly dangerous for dogs.
  • Not keen on dairy? Pureed banana and/or coconut milk are potential neutral-coloured alternatives. You can experiment anything pet-safe, including simple water, as the base. Get creative! Its fun!
  • Any tray will do, but flexible ice-cube trays work great for freezing fun shaped treats.  
  • Store and serve from the freezer.  These treats will melt quickly, especially in warm temperatures and can be messy while your pup is licking merrily, so these are best enjoyed from a bowl or outside.

We share ideas here from treats that we make ourselves for our pets, but different animals will have different preferences (likes/dislikes) and dietary needs. Some pets may have special dietary requirements and/or food allergies/intolerances. If you are ever in doubt or have questions about what's suitable for your pet, have a chat with your trusted vet.
