{RECIPE} Stained Glass Yogurt Gummy Easter Dog Treats

Anyone else remember stained glass Jell-o jigglers from childhood? Here's my dogified version made with yummy yogurt, healthy gelatin, and colourful add-ins. Because I simply can't resist doing these crazy things. Haha!  The dogs totally don't care about the colours, but they do love gummies!

{RECIPE} Bone Brothsicles Frozen Dog Treats

Bowl of frozen dog treats with bone broth and yogurt on a polka dot napkin

It's officially autumn here in NZ (although I'm hanging onto summer until the equinox!) and this past summer has been a scorcher! Perfect weather for cool yummy gummies and frozen treats. These brothsicles were created along with a batch of bone broth gummy treats (stay tuned for next week's post) when a batch of bone broth didn't set on its own for gelled storage and serving. It was a sizzling summer day, so instead of just freezing it into broth cubes, I decided to stretch it out with a broth ice cream treat and a batch of yummy gummies.

These easy three-ingredient apple pie frozen yogurt dog treats are doggone delicious!  It's not pupsicle weather here at the moment (brrr....winter!), but the blog dogs have been busy for months pre-prepping and taste testing (such a difficult duty!) treats so that we can keep the blog active through the chaos of moving prep, relocation, and settling into a new home.  And June is Dairy Month, so we're kicking off with a yummy yogurt treat. These frozen treats were a summertime hit at our place and are super simple to make! Soak up some sunshine for us, nothern furfriends!

{RECIPE} Pumpkin + Peanut Butter Cake with Yogurt Frosting

Dog party buffet table with birthday cake and treats

It's not really a birthday party without a cake, is it? In the words of Julia Child, "a party without cake is just a meeting." and while we do enjoy meetings with doggone delicious snacks, barkday parties with dog-friendly cakes are far superior. :)  Our dog birthday cakes are usually meatloaf-style creations, but for Oli's barkday pawty this year I decided to make meatballs as a side and bake a "real" cake instead.

{RECIPE} All Natural Hot Pink Valentine Gummy Dog Treats

Bright pink gelatin gummy dog treats shaped like bones and paws

These bright pink gelatin gummy dog treats get the pretty pink from combining our go-to simple stock base with plain yogurt and beetroot powder. They only take a few minutes to make (plus set time) and are something that I feel great about giving to our boys as a treat since they are jam packed with healthy goodness.

{RECIPE} "Jelly Tip" Carob and Yogurt Gummy Dog Treats

These doggone delicious treats were inspired by the classic kiwi Jelly Tip ice cream treats. For our furfriends overseas, Jelly Tips are an ice cream cream stick treat of vanilla ice cream topped with raspberry jelly (the jelly tip) and coated in chocolate, and have been made by local manufacturers Tip Top since 1951. It's a kiwi icon!  I've been wanting to share a carob gummy recipe with you for a while and simply couldn't get my brain past the combination of chocolate and rosy red jelly. And really...can you blame me? So let's dogify it!

{RECIPE} Yogurt Gelatin Healthy Heart Gummy Dog Treats

Homemade yogurt and gelatin dog treats, heat-shaped, on a red and black background

These little hearts are so easy and our dogs LOVE them.  Made in two steps to protect the probiotic content of the yogurt, these gummies are quick healthy treats that you can feel good about sharing with your dog... even literally if you'd like to sample! I'm not into eating gelatin myself, but it's great for humans as well as dogs. When made with plain yogurt, these gummies are naturally a creamy white. The mixture can also be tinted with compatibly flavoured natural colourings (or a dog-safe food colouring) before pouring the prepared gelatin mixture into your molds, if you wish.

{RECIPE} Coconut Molasses Bites | Dog Treats

Homemade dog treats spilling out of a drawstring bag onto a plain table cloth with a tag that says "THANKS so very much"

I love the rich sweet smell of molasses and coconut in these treats, and my dogs do too!  These flavours would be great for Thanksgiving (or for Christmas) and the firm cookie-style treats could also travel well in doggy bags for furry friends.  On the subject of giving thanks, since this is our last blog post before we start Christmas content (stay tuned for tons of fun!), I'd like to say THANKS so very much to all of our awesome readers, commenters, followers, and friends. You make this whole blogging madness worthwhile, and I am grateful to have you with us.

{RECIPE} Molasses & Peanut Butter "Gingerbread" Dog Treats

Homemade gingerbread dog treats stacked next to gingerbread person cookie cutter

Blackstrap molasses gives these treats a rick brown colour and fabulous smell, reminiscent of real gingerbread. Quality blackstrap molasses is rich in nutrition (for humans and animals) and some folks believe it can help dogs with arthritis and mobility, immune system strength, and heart health. Our dogs love the smell, so I set out to bake a tasty treat with a boost of molasses.
