Frozen dog treats with pumpkin or carrots

Every ingredient in this recipe is safe for dogs to consume. However, you should always check with your veterinarian before introducing anything new to your dog’s diet!

Total preparation time: 15 minutes (excluding freezing time)

Dog tasty score: 4 out of 5

Human tasty score: 3 out of 5 (it tastes a bit like baby food!)

Wamiz tip: In the autumn, you could replace the carrots with a more seasonal vegetable, like pumpkins! You can either blend the flesh yourself, or you can buy pumpkin puree in a can.

Nutritionist’s advice: If you choose to use carrot puree or pumpkin puree instead of blending the ingredients yourself, make sure you read the labels of the puree cans carefully! Your puree should be plain and shouldn’t contain any added ingredients such as excess salt or sugar.

  2. Pour the banana puree into a separate bowl.
  3. Put the carrots into a blender and blend until smooth.
