Warmer weather and cool treats do not only hold true for humans, but dogs also love a little cold treat after any activity in the heat.  Pumpkin is safe for your dog to eat, so try Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe. 

While you can buy frozen dog treats at the grocery store, not only are they expensive but you can’t control the size or ingredients.

Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe

Making homemade treats, especially frozen ones, are so simple and the longest part of the process is letting them freeze. For this recipe, we used a can of pureed pumpkin, a 15 oz container of No-Fat Greek yogurt, and about a tablespoon of honey.

What you need to make Homemade Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treat

  • Can of Pureed Pumpkin (Not Pie filling)
  • No Fat Greek Yogurt
  • Honey
  • Extra Dog treats or kibble

t’s optional but we also used a few dog treats or dog food nuggets to top each treat off.

Simply puree the pumpkin and vanilla with a squeeze of honey in the blender until smooth. I told you this was simple.
