Along with serving as small treats, this blueberry dog ice cream also makes a fun filling for a stuffable rubber treat dispensing toy for some longer-lasting fun. Rich in antioxidants, blueberries are a superfood that’s a favorite with many dogs, ours included.
Stuffable toys like KONG® rubber toys can be filled with liquid mixtures and frozen; their shape will slow your dog’s chewing to extend the life of the treat and to reduce choking hazards.
Tip: Washing Fresh Produce
To avoid the risk of bacteria and pesticides, the best way to wash berries is to give them a good rinse under cold running water right before use.
How to Make Frozen Blueberry Dog Treats
OK, this is about as easy a recipe can get–all you need are two ingredients and a little bit of time to allow for freezing!
1 cup blueberries
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
Puree blueberries and yogurt in blender.
(No blender? You can stir in the blueberries and freeze. Your “doggie ice cream” will be a little chunkier than it would be if pureed, but every bit as tasty to your dog!)
Pour in ice cube trays or into a stuffable toy and freeze. Serve frozen.
