** Research shows that strawberries are safe for dogs, but always check with your vet before introducing new foods into your dog’s diet! **
These easy-to-make homemade strawberry puppy treats are sure to make your furry friend’s tail wag. The recipe requires only 4 ingredients, many of which you probably keep on hand at all times. Fresh strawberries, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and water are blended together to make a fun and flavorful treat any pup would love to crunch and munch on.
Why treat your dog with strawberries?
Strawberries are a great choice for homemade puppy treats because they are full of antioxidants, high in fiber, and even contain an enzyme that can help whiten your pup’s teeth. Although strawberries are perfectly healthy for dogs, it’s important to make sure they don’t overindulge given that there is sugar in the fruit. Like everything else, dogs can enjoy strawberries in moderation.
This recipe calls for very few ingredients and even fewer steps! Just three easy steps and you’ll have a yummy treat to share with your four-legger.
- Start by adding all of the ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth and slightly runny.
- Pour the mixture into your mold of choice and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours.
- Remove from the mold and store in a freezer bag or storage container.
Oh, wait! There’s just one more step… make sure your pup sits, stays, shakes, or at the very least poses for a cute Instagram photo. After that, it’s time to enjoy!
In honor of Easter, make these treats using a bunny mold and turn them into puppy peeps!
