This frozen carrot and bone broth dog treat recipe is pretty simple, contains only 2 ingredients plus water and are a low-calorie treat most dogs will love.
A few weeks ago I bought some rainbow carrots with full intentions of eating them myself.
Even though my intentions were good, I never ate them but of course, I did make them into some fun and colorful frozen dog treats!
Normally I make frozen carrot dog treats with regular organic orange carrots and some bone broth but using rainbow carrots to make treats takes them to a whole other level!
Rainbow Carrots + Bone Broth Frozen Dog Treats
This frozen carrot and bone broth dog treat recipe is pretty simple and only contains 2 ingredients plus water.
- 1 cup of carrots washed, peeled and chopped
- 1/4 cup of dog-safe bone broth
- 1/4 cup of water
For each color carrot, I used a different flavor of bone broth but you can use the same flavor.
For the purple carrots, I used beef bone broth, for the yellow carrots I used turkey bone and for the orange carrots, I used chicken bone broth.
- Wash and peel rainbow carrots
- Chop or dice into small pieces
- Place chopped carrots into a blender or food processor
- Add 1/4 cup of bone broth and 1/4 cup of water
- Place silicone mold or ice cubes tray on baking sheet
- Spoon carrot mixture into molds
- Place in freezer and freeze for 2-3 hours
- Serve to your dog!
- Store in a freezer-safe container for up to 1 month
The amount of dog treats you get will be based off of the size of the molds you use. I got 24 treats in total.
Can Dogs Have Rainbow Carrots?
Yes! Rainbow carrots are safe for most dogs to eat when fed in moderation.
Purple and yellow carrots have the same health benefits for dogs as orange carrots plus a few extra!
All colors of carrots are rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber which means that they can improve digestive health in dogs.
They also contain magnesium and are full of antioxidants including:
- Vitamin C
Plus they’re low in calories making them a healthy snack for most dogs.
Are Purple Carrots Better Than Orange Carrots?
According to Healthline, “All types of carrots are highly nutritious, but purple carrots are especially rich in powerful antioxidants known to fight inflammation and benefit certain health conditions. Purple carrots are particularly rich in anthocyanins, which are antioxidants shown to protect against heart disease, mental decline, and diabetes”
Frozen Carrots Soaked In Bone Broth
I’ve seen quite a few dog owners that take whole carrots and soak them in bone broth for several hours.
After the carrots are done soaking, they freeze the carrots and then give them to their dog as a safe chew-treat alternative.
My dogs didn’t seem to care for carrots this way so although these frozen carrot dog treats and bone broth aren’t a chew treat, they are still a healthy snack loaded with nutrients!
How To Store Frozen Carrot Dog Treats
One of the reasons why I prefer to make frozen dog treats over baked dog treats is because they last longer.
Frozen dog treats are super easy to store in your freezer and they can last up to several months when stored properly.
I normally use freezer-safe bags like silicone bags or Ziploc bags.
I also use freezer-safe containers that have a lid.
When storing frozen dog treats in bags I always like to label it with the date and type of treat.
