Easy frozen yogurt dog treats are made with just 3 ingredients. Mango, banana and Greek yogurt combine for a colourful and tasty dog treat.
Our dogs loved these and this was the first time Teddy and Rocco had mango. Both loved it and they do enjoy a frozen treat in the hot weather.
Are dogs allowed to eat mango?
As long as the mango is peeled and the pit removed, mango is a safe fruit for dogs.
The skin has a compound in it similar to poison ivy that might give the dog a skin rash. The large pit is a potential choking hazard and a stomach obstruction if swallowed.
Mangos are a high sugar fruit so should be given in moderation. They are high in fiber, rich in potassium, contain protein, antioxidants and vitamin A which are all great for your dog's health.
When we lived in Barbados we had a huge mango tree and our dogs would enjoy the fallen fruit. We had to act fast so they did not eat the skin or stones though! However, the monkeys that passed through our garden ate most of the fruit too!
Can dogs eat yogurt?
Yogurt is safe for dogs as long as it is plain and ideally low in fat. Flavoured yogurts are full of sugar and should not be given to dogs. Greek yogurt and natural yogurt are a good option for dog treats.
Greek yogurt is high in protein and contains probiotics. It also has a lower lactose content but if your dog is lactose intolerant then skip the yogurt. Coconut yogurt is a good replacement for cow's yogurt.
How to make mango frozen yogurt dog treats
This is an easy dog treat recipe as most frozen dog treats are! Select ripe mangos and bananas. Remove the skin, chop them. Blitz them in a blender with the yogurt and then spoon into your molds or an ice cube tray.
We used cute paw and bone shaped silicone which are listed after the recipe card below.
