Easy Frozen Dog Treat Recipes

Easy frozen dog treat recipes are the perfect way to spoil your dog, and the quickest option when it comes to prep time.

What's even better is that most recipes on this page only use two or three ingredients, many of which you most probably have in your pantry or refrigerator right now.

I use silicone molds to make my dog's homemade frozen goodies. The treats pop out so easily, the molds are freezer safe and easy to clean. If you don't have any on hand, ice cube trays are a good option.

Hot summer days are the perfect time to give your dog these frozen goodies, but as long as you offer them outdoors or on an easy-to-clean flooring (such as tile), they're just as popular at any time of year.

There's also some built-in play value in frozen dog treats. Dogs often love to play with ice-cubes, and those have NO flavor. So imagine how much more fun they have with tasty frozen treats. Yup. My boys adore their freezies and I'm sure yours will too.


Baby Food & Bone Broth Frozen Dog Treats

These frozen treats actually have four ingredients, but they're still super simple and quick to make.

You can use any flavor baby food you want (meat or vegetable) and if you don't have bone broth, bouillon works just fine. If you don't have any carrots you can even leave that ingredient out, they'll still taste great to your dog.

  • 1 cup coconut oil (melted)

You can use different fruit in this recipe. For bigger fruits chop them up into small pieces, or mash them. Try strawberries, bananas, fresh cranberries or pineapple.

Yield:

This recipe makes approximately 30 small star shaped treats.


Instructions

  • Put silicone molds on baking tray for stability
  • Wash blueberries
  • Melt coconut oil
  • Place one blueberry into each mold

Coconut Oil for Dogs

Although coconut oil has many health benefits, like any ingredient it should be eaten in moderation.

Many veterinarians recommend a maximum ingestion of 1 tsp coconut oil per 10lbs of a dog's body weight per day to prevent excess calorie/fat intake.

Depending on the size of the treat molds you use there will be approx. 1/2 tsp to 2 tsp of coconut oil per treat. You can easily do the math using these facts. Even if you exceed those figures it's highly unlikely to cause any problems for your dog as long as it's not a daily, or long-term, situation.

Coconut oil treats are NOT suitable for dogs with a history of pancreatitis.
