Wamiz tip: Alternate the fruits you use depending on your pet’s preferences. It doesn’t matter which fruits you choose to use in this recipe, as long as they’re healthy and safe for dogs!
Nutritionist’s advice: Avoid leaving these treats out of the freezer too long. If they melt and are then refrozen, ingesting them can actually cause quite serious heart problems for your pet. Ensure you are feeding these treats straight out of the freezer and you’re storing them there.

Homemade frozen fruit and yogurt dog treat recipe
This recipe is super simple, it may just take you a few minutes to chop up the fruit. Other than that, it’s a piece of cake (or frozen yogurt, as it were…)!
- Fresh or unsweetened frozen blueberries
- Fresh or unsweetened frozen strawberries
- Fresh or unsweetened frozen apples
- 110 grams of plain yogurt (we used non-fat)
- If you’re using fresh fruits, cut them up into little pieces.
- Blend the yogurt and water together. If you want your treats to be creamier, add more yogurt and less water.
- Pour this mixture into your mold and make sure you leave some space for the fruits you’ll add later.
- Add blueberries to the first rows of your mold.
- Add strawberries to the next few rows of your mold.
- Add apples to the final rows of your mold until you’ve filled it up completely.
- Place the tray in your freezer and leave it there until the treats are completely solid.
Now all you have to do is enjoy! Did your pooch love this recipe as much as our office dogs did?
