DIY Frozen Yogurt Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I love making treats for my dogs when I can, but I usually don't want to spend tons of time on my DIY dog treat projects.   I like my dog treat recipes easy and quick, while still being a delicious and special snack for my dogs!


Here's a really simple DIY dog treat that takes very little time and uses just two ingredients:

PEANUT BUTTER YOGURT DOG TREATS:
5 Tbsp. Yogurt (I used Greek Yogurt)
2 large scoops of Peanut butter

THAT'S IT!! 





STEP 1. Mix the yogurt and peanut butter together in a small bowl until blended.


STEP 2.  Add the mixture to either a stuffable toy, such as a Kong toy  OR  you can spoon them into an ice cube tray.

STEP 3. Pop the peanut butter yogurt stuffed toy or the ice cube try into the freezer and FREEZE!

STEP 4. Watch your dogs gobble up their special treat with gusto!


I was a little worried that the ice cube tray wouldn't work well, that I'd have trouble getting them out of the tray.  To my surprise they just popped right out!  I think using the thicker Greek style Yogurt may have helped, they didn't stick to the tray much at all.

This homemade treat recipe couldn't be easier, but my dogs think I slaved in the kitchen all morning making them!


As you can see, Icy and Phoebe are thoroughly enjoying their Yogurt Peanut Butter treats.  Phoebe has a weird habit of grabbing her treats and running away to the nearest dog bed to devour them, LOL!

Note: Remember to Always consult your Veterinarian before introducing  new foods to your pet.

  10. I would have to switch to a different nut since we have allergies to peanut in this household. But that IS super easy! Would have to find an ice cube tray tiny tiny....

    1. LOL! I don't know how tiny of an ice cube try you'll find but perhaps those tiny paper cups they use for truffle making? Any kind of tasty buttery spread would probably do instead of the PB.
