Just 2 ingredients make these easy frozen blueberry yogurt dog treats. Frozen dog treats are always welcome on a hot day and are a handy snack to have to hand in the freezer.
Easy to make and loved by my dogs, these homemade blueberry treats are a great frozen treat. Sometimes my dogs almost swallow them whole, sometimes they will give a satisfying couple of bites.
CAN DOGS EAT BLUEBERRIES?
Blueberries are an excellent fruit for dogs and a safe food to give them. Low in calories, rich in antioxidants, high in fiber and vitamin C they make a great natural treat.
Fresh, frozen, mashed or baked, blueberries are a delicious addition to your dog's diet.
CAN DOGS HAVE GREEK YOGURT?
Greek yogurt is a good source of protein and calcuim for dogs and has a lower lactose content than natural yogurt, making it easier to digest.
As with all yogurts only give plain and unsweetened yogurt to your dogs. My dogs love the creamy texture of Greek yoghurt and occasionally I top their dog meals with a spoon of it for a nutritional treat.
Remember to go slowly when introducing new foods. And we recommend checking with your veterinarian first if your dog has any digestive issues or other health concerns.
HOW TO MAKE FROZEN BLUEBERRY YOGURT DOG TREATS
This is an easy homemade blueberry dog treat recipe with Greek yogurt mixed with fresh blueberries and then frozen into dog treat molds.
Another way to make these frozen blueberry yogurt treats is to place the ingredients into a blender and blitz until the mixture is blended and colourful.
To save on the washing up, spoon the Greek yogurt into the molds, then press the blueberries into the yogurt.

Frozen dog treat molds
To be honest, the dog treat molds are more for us than the dogs. The cute shapes looks fun and take great photos. The dogs only care that the frozen treats taste good so you could use plain ice cube trays!
Dog Frozen Treat Molds
Silicone frozen treat molds with paw and bone shapes.
Once the blueberry dog treats are frozen, pop them out of the silicon mold or ice tray and put them in a zip lock bag. Return to the freezer and they should keep for 2 months or all summer long.
Keeping them in a zip lock bag gives you more space in the freezer and the dogs soon learn the rustle of a zip lock bag!
HOW MANY FROZEN TREATS CAN MY DOG HAVE?
As with all dog treats, keep them down to a daily minimum, however large those eyes looking up at you become!
One or two frozen treats a day, depending upon the size of your dog should be okay. Check with your veterinarian for more advice.
