    anyone have a recipe for a frozen dog treat (Like Frosty Paws)?

    OK, I made the mistake of letting my dog lick the pull-off seal to my Haagen Daz human treat= and it kinda becam a ritual, along with a little tast a few more times as I n=finish my treat ( I’m sure its not good for her, so just a tiny few tastes, but she needs her own “faux ice cream” cuz now I feel guilty having my treat without her thinking she is getting ice cream too, I tried Frosy Paws frozen dog treat ___ VERY expensive and pobably not good for the dog but probably better than a taste of a few of Haagen Daz. Now im looking for a frozen treat concoction or recipe, or idea of substitute.. I thought of lowfat yogurt, but maybe that;s not good for her either?? But would like to have a frozen treat recipe thatI can make her to have while I have mine, .I do have an ice cream maker (that I”ve never even used)… but there must be someone who has figured out how to make a frozen doggie treat that is realtively ok treat for dogs?? Anyone….?

    Freeze kefir in an ice cube tray. You can use the plain and add small pieces of berries for extra antioxidants.

    I haven’t made sorbet in my ice cream maker but you can try making the recipes without sugar. But pureed fruit/veg and yogurt frozen into ice cube trays is more convenient. The Honest Kitchen sells “liquid treats” that you can freeze.

    Judy, I make homemade “ice-cream” for my Bruno of 1/4 cup yoghurt/kefir, 2 tbs peanut butter, 1 tbs coconut oil, 1 tbs local honey, a pinch of turmeric, a pinch of cinnamon, 2 tsp unsweetened coconut shreds for texture, 1 tsp flax seed meal (ground flax seeds). Different variations with or without fruit/veggies, and with or without those or other ingredients can be done too. I fill a Kong toy, a buffalo horn, a hoof, and a marrow bone (now marrow-less) with the concoction and let freeze, and serve when I need for Bruno to not bother me – he takes his time licking it out plus he can then chew on the thing that was once filled. 🙂

    I forgot to mention – my recipe freezes solid and it will give your pup extra time to work on it, and you some extra minutes of not being pestered for your treat. I just gave Bruno a marrow bone with ice-cream, since we were talking about it. 🙂

    I also usually chuck a frozen blueberry on the bottom of a Kong so that the mixture above doesn’t leak through it. I put the marrow bone on one of its cut sides on a piece of foil in the freezer.

    Another recipe I have seen is with pumpkin and a Wellness 95% can (the recipe was with salmon, but you can use any, I think) – also put in ice cube trays or other “vessels” and frozen. You can also freeze just PB in something and give as an ice cream. 🙂 Let me give you a link with some more recipes in there:

    As Sandy and BC mentioned, I freeze plain Kefir and add berries. I also freeze plain yogurt and add berries. They go crazy for both versions.

    We’re supposed to get a HUGE storm tomorrow, (which we desperately need) and I don’t know if I’ll be able to actually go anywhere because of flooding. I might try making some treats tomorrow, unless we lose power.

    Dog_Obsessed, please you and Lily (and the rest of your family and friends) be safe! Treats are a fun project for days in the house when you have nothing to do, but I am sure they can wait if things get bad.
