diy pet treatsThis is a quick and easy DIY dog treat recipe that you can make at home. It’s so easy, even the kids can help out! These treats are fun, patriotic, and your dog will find them “irresistible” on a hot Summer day! They make a perfect treat for the pets for a Memorial Day, July 4th, or Labor Day BBQ (while the humans enjoy some burgers on the grill!).

Tools You Need

  • Star Shaped Ice Cube Trays
  • Blender
  • Cake Decorating Tip (to help pour)
I picked up these star shaped ice cube trays up at Target a few months back for $1 each. I’m not sure if they still have them but I did find a similar one on Amazon.

Ingredients You Need

  • 1 Cup Water
  • 8 Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Blueberries
*I made 16 ice-cubes and how lots of liquid left over for an additional project that I created. You may want to use more or less depending on how many you plan on making!*

Time Required

  • 15 minutes + Freeze Time

Instructions

These instructions are based on the DIY Frozen Star Dog Treats that I created in this picture. If you want to learn more, keep reading!

Note – Always ensure your pet is not allergic before introducing any new food into their diet. If unsure, call your vet.

Cut stems off of strawberries

Step 3

Mix 1/2 cup water and all 8 strawberries in the blender. Blend until liquefied. Repeat with Blueberries. (Mixing 1/4 cup Blueberries with 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of water).

Step 4

Pour berry/water mixture into ice cube trays using a cake decorating tip to help prevent any leaks. View my DIY Frozen Luau Dog Treats to see this technique. Repeat with the blueberry mixture.

Step 5

Freeze for 2-4 hours or overnight.

Once they are frozen, pop them out and serve 1-2 cubes to your Irresistible Pet! You can put the remaining cubes into a plastic container and store them in the freezer. Now when your dog is hot you will have a quick, tasty, frozen treat on hand to cool them off!
