DOG TREAT RECIPE: APPLE-YOGURT FREEZIES

Posted On 01/17/2013 by


It is such a joy to surprise Miss Rory with homemade dog treats, especially when the dog treats only require three ingredients and minimal effort for a big impact! Today I’d like to share with you Apple-Yogurt Freezies – a three ingredient treat that is packed with nutrients and doubles up as a fun game!

Plus, these tantalizing goodies are loaded with vitamin B which will help prevent your dog getting dry skin in the winter. To make these tasty morsels all you need is…

The Things You’ll Need (makes 8)
1) 1 or 2 moderately sized organic apples (Royal Galas always have a nice crunch).

2) 1/2 cup of plain, unsweetened pro-biotic yogurt

3) 2 tbsp Brewer’s yeast

4) An icecube tray

Directions
1. Wash apples and cut into evenly diced pieces.
2. Stir Brewer’s yeast into yogurt.
3. Gently spoon yogurt mixture into ice cube tray.
4. Press one piece of diced apple into each section of the ice cube tray.
5. Place in freezer and leave overnight to freeze.
6. Once frozen solid, simply pop out a freezie cube whenever it is time to treat pup!

These treats are a refreshing departure from typical dry biscuits and because of their slow-melting action your pup will have a wail of a time nosing them around their dinner bowl (or around the kitchen floor if you don’t mind a little bit of mess). Rory always delights in the chilly snack and tosses it around the kitchen or curls up in her bed to lick it patiently.

Nutritional Benefits
Plain, unsweetened yogurt is an excellent source of calcium as well as protein, while the apple is packed with vitamins A, C and fibre. The Brewer’s yeast offers dogs vitamin B which is wonderful for a healthy coat and skin and protects against dryness in the winter. So all in all these cool treats are good for your dog’s diet and super simple to make! What’s not to love about that?

    I was just wondering about the yeast… Is it a make or break for this recipe? Can I substitute with vitamin B oil or just leave it out all together?

      Hi Stephanie! Nope, the yeast is not a make or break. Subbing in a vitamin or some sort of dog-friendly oil will work too (although, not too much oil as it might separate and not freeze as nicely). Let us know if your pup likes these!

        Oh My Gosh!! These are amazing and so simple!! Made them yesterday morning and it was my pups dessert! All three of them devoured them!! I had no idea they would like the apple so much!! I ended up just spooning out the yogurt into the ice cube tray and putting the apple on top, no yeast or oil and they turned out perfect! Thanks for the great idea!

    Thanks for this easy, wonderful recipe. It’s a “why didn’t I think of that” moment! I’m always looking for grain for grain-free treats. This is perfect for those unbearable hot summer days to come.
