If you’re looking for a healthy, low-fat refreshing frozen dog treat recipe to make for your dogs this summer or fall, these frozen apple and carrot dog treats are the perfect option.
These homemade apple dog treats are great for dogs with allergies because they don’t contain any yogurt, peanut butter or chicken.
Another great thing about these simple frozen treats is that they contain a small amount so not only will help with bad dog breath but the mint also makes them an even more refreshing dog treat.
The ingredients you need to make these frozen apple & carrot dog treats are simple, carrots, an apple, turkey bone (or any dog-safe bone broth you have) and a few leaves of organic mint.
I made our frozen dog treats using cute silicone dog molds but you can also use regular ice cube trays.
All you to make these frozen apple dog treats are:
- 2 cups of fresh, washed and peeled carrots
- 1 washed apple sliced with the seeds and core removed
- 1 cup of turkey bone broth
- 1/4 cup of mint leaves
- Place peeled carrots in a blender or food processor
- Add in apple slices
- Pour in bone broth
- Puree into a nice smooth mixture
- Add in mint leaves
- Pour mixture into silicone molds
- Place in freezer and freeze for 2-3 hours
- Serve to your dog!
How many frozen apple and carrot dog treats you get will be based on how big your silicone molds or ice trays are.
I used a variety of molds so I got about 36 frozen dog treats.
How To Store Frozen Apple & Carrot Dog Treats
One thing I like about making frozen dog treats is that when properly stored, they can last 1-2 months.
I normally store our frozen treats in freezer-safe silicone bags or Ziploc Freezer Bags.
Just make sure that you remove the air and close the bag well.
If you don’t have dog-safe bone broth you can also use low-sodium broth or you can just add water.
If you can’t find mint or don’t have any on hand you can leave that ingredient out or substitute for parsley.
