A simple and delicious dog treat with basic ingredients and a ton of benefits!
Sick of spending money on dog treats with ingredients you can’t even pronounce? I know, I am too.
This homemade dog treat recipe is really simple and most of the ingredients you probably already have (and even eat yourself).
What you will need: Greek plain yogurt, peanut butter, blueberries (frozen or fresh) and 1 banana.
Greek yogurt is well-known for its rich probiotics which help balance friendly bacteria in our digestives systems. Dogs are of no exception to this as well. The probiotics are also helpful to dogs who suffer from frequent ear and skin infections. This super rich yogurt is also higher in protein than any other yogurt which will benefit dogs that have issues consuming proper amounts of proteins.
Adding bananas to this scrumptious treat provides a natural source of potassium and are low in cholesterol and sodium. However, this tasty fruit is high in sugar, so feed in moderation.
Yogurt & Blueberry Frozen Treat!
- 32 oz. Greek Yogurt plain
- 3 tbsp. Peanut Butter make sure it does not contain Xilytol
- 1 cup Blueberries frozen or fresh
- 1 Banana
Blend in a food processor.
Freeze two hours!
Though there is no need to buy a fancy tray to freeze them in, it does make for a really cute treat. You can find silicone molds on Amazon.com. They are absolutely adorable and I am sure you will find many other uses for them. I have made a few different treats for kids and parties with these molds.
Get creative! This recipe is really interchangeable in ingredients by using Greek yogurt as a base. You can even sneak in some vegetables by adding shredded carrots or even a bit of Flaxseed to boost their Omega-3’s!
Easy, cheap and most ingredients you may already have. A perfect homemade dog treat recipe!
