Love is in the air! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to share my homemade dog treat recipe with you for raspberry and carob frozen dog treats.
With only three ingredients, you can whip up these delicious treats in no time for your beloved dog. Let's get started!
How to make raspberry and carob frozen dog treats
- 1tbsp raspberry puree (raspberries can be fresh or thawed from frozen)
- 1tbsp carob powder
- 200g plain yoghurt (alternatively, you can use milk kefir)
Please ensure that if you’re using yoghurt, choose a dog-friendly variety that does not contain anything such as xylitol (which is toxic to dogs), sugar, sweeteners, preservatives or flavours.
Step 1: Split the plain yoghurt into two bowls.
Step 2: Add the raspberry puree to one bowl of yoghurt and the carob powder to the other and mix well until combined.
Step 3: Spoon the mixtures into a silicone mould. Tap the moulds on the counter as you fill them to remove air bubbles.
Depending on the flexibility of your silicone mould, you may find it easier to put it on a baking tray or sheet, making it easier to transfer to the freezer. The mould I’m using is relatively rigid, so it didn’t require this.
Step 4: Put the silicone mould into the freezer until the treats are fully frozen.
Step 5: Remove the frozen dog treats from their mould and transfer them to a suitable freezer-safe container for storage.
- Whilst I have provided measurements for this recipe, you can skip them. That's because frozen dog treats are so easy to make that you don't need precise measurements to make them successfully.
- Treat ingredients can be scaled to suit your specific silicone moulds or if you would like to make more treats.
- To get a more even finish on your raspberry treats, strain the raspberry seeds out of your puree before mixing it with the yoghurt; this is optional (I didn't do this in this recipe).
- You can also use strawberries instead of raspberries for this frozen dog treat recipe.
