What feels better than snacking on a popsicle or on a bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day? Not much, right? Your dog or your cat could probably agree. Here are 5 tasty frozen treat recipes for dogs and cats:
1. Frozen broth cubes
Just pour beef or chicken broth with no salt added in an ice cube tray, and put the tray back in the freezer. Your dog will LOVE these treats! To make these treats even more exciting, hide your pet’s favorite Oven-Baked Tradition treats in each cube before freezing them. These will be a neat surprise when your dog crunches or licks the cube.
2. Frozen yogurt
Fill an ice cube tray with plain yogurt, lactose free if necessary, put the tray in the freezer, and after a couple of hours, you have a very healthy treat to give to your cat or to your dog on special occasions.
3. Frozen tuna
You will need another ice cube tray! Fill each cube with canned tuna and some water, and freeze away. Cats and dogs go crazy for these simple and healthy treats.
4. Peanut butter popsicles
Your dog will LOVE these. Mix well 3 big tablespoons of peanut butter, 3 ripped and mashed bananas, and a small container (32 oz) of plain yogurt. Pour into a popsicle tray or a regular ice tray, freeze, and enjoy!
5. Frozen sardine popsicles
Cats LOVE sardines. Put in a blender a can of sardines, ¼ cup of olive oil, ¼ cup of water, and some of your cat’s favorite treats, and blend well. Pour into an small ice cube tray, freeze, and watch your cat go crazy when you give him one of these frozen treats.
