DIY Frozen Dog Treat Recipes for Summer

Posted by Laura Greenland on

Summer is fast-approaching and with the heatwave that’s just landed here in the UK,  it’s important to know how to keep our dogs cool, so that we can all enjoy the glorious weather. After all, it doesn’t happen that often so we need to make the most of it!

We’ve put together some super easy and healthy frozen recipes for your pups to enjoy this season, which not only require minimal effort, but also taste delicious - to our four-legged friends of course. With the days getting longer, we hope you’ve got some extra time on your hands to whip up some of these tasty treats, Mary Berry, eat your heart out. 

Doggy Ice Cream

Something as delicious as ice cream shouldn’t just be for us to enjoy; our furry friends deserve that luxury too! This recipe is super easy and only requires 3 ingredients, all of which may be items that are already part of your weekly shop! 


¾ cup of Greek yoghurt 

1 ripe banana

¼ cup of xylitol free peanut butter (xylitol is an ingredient to avoid as it can be a toxic sweetener to dogs)


  1. Peel your banana skin and mash the banana using a fork or a masher in a bowl.
  2. Add in the peanut butter and mix with the banana until combined.
  3. Add the Greek yoghurt to the bowl and mix until all of the ingredients have combined.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a mould, this could be an ice cube tray or any silicone, freezer safe container.
  5. Place the mould into the freezer until the mixture is solid and serve when desired. 

Extra: You could mix in ½ cup of blueberries for an additional treat and nutrition!

Frozen Furr Boost Dog Treats 

This next recipe is super easy and hassle-free, and the taste is certified delicious. Just ask our furry brand ambassadors. 


Furr Boost Dog Drink. 

There are multiple flavours available in our shop, so this tasty treat can really be adapted to your pooch’s taste buds. Our drinks come in 400ml quantities so you can either use the whole drink, or save some and double up! 


  1. All you need to do is pour the drink of choice into a freezable mould, an ice cube tray would do the trick just fine!
  2. Leave the mould in the freezer until hardened and bon appetit! Help your dog to cool down whilst feeling the effects of multiple other benefits that come from drinking Furr Boost such as helping their digestion, circulation, body temperature regulation (which is extra important this time of year) and heaps more!

Frozen Applesauce Dog Treat 

This next recipe has a fruity twist, and your furry friend will be giving you puppy eyes, begging for more. 


1 cup of unsweetened applesause 

¼ cup peanut butter - remember to avoid xylitol

¼ cup of blueberries 


  1. Mix together the applesauce and peanut butter until combined and smooth.
  2. Mix in the blueberries into the applesauce and peanut butter until combined.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a freezable mould.
  4. Place the mould into the freezer and leave until hardened.
  5. Serve to your doggy’s heart's desires! 

Frozen Strawberry and banana enrichment treat

We’ve spoken before about the importance of enrichment for your pets, so why not combine keeping cool with keeping entertained this summer by trying out this fruity and delicious frozen recipe?


¾ cup Greek yoghurt 

¼ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)

1 ripe banana 

You can add some cooked oatmeal to this recipe, but we know the benefits of a grain-free diet, as spoken about in one of our previous blog posts. Consult your vet if you are unsure about whether or not you should include grains in your dog’s diet or if its something you should stay away from. 


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture over a lickimat, which can be found on our website or into/on other enrichment toys such as a kong.
  3. Freeze for a few hours until the mixture has solidified and serve!

We hope that you and your four-legged friends enjoy these sunnier days whilst staying safe and healthy. Remember, whilst having fun in the sun, it’s extremely important to check with a consultant or a vet before trying new foods for your pet, keeping allergies and intolerances in mind before serving up some of these tasty treats to avoid upset tummies.

Happy making!
