National Dessert Day DIY Dog Treats

This article was authored by Michael

October 14th is probably one of the best holidays ever! It is National Dessert Day! I will be sharing with you a few super easy treat recipes that will have your pets begging for more. 

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt Bites

First up is Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt Bites. The ingredients list: 

1 cup nonfat plain yogurt

½ cup of canned pure pumpkin

*Make sure it is 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. Pie filling might contain xylitol.

¼ cup of water

Mix everything together and pour into an ice cube tray. If you want to be in the fall spirit, you can get this cool pumpkin ice cube tray off of Amazon. Next, leave the trays in the freezer for about 3 to 4 hours.

Baked Pumpkin Dog Treats

These Baked Pumpkin Dog Treats are amazing. The ingredients you’ll need are:

1 cup of canned pure pumpkin

*Make sure it is 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. Pie filling might contain xylitol.

2 eggs

3 tablespoons of peanut butter

*Make sure it does not contain xylitol.

3 cups of flour

Mix all the ingredients together and then once you have your dough, roll gumball sized balls and line on a baking sheet. You will need to preheat the oven to 350° and cook for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. The best part about these treats is that if you freeze them after they’re done cooking, they are good for about 3 months! You may be asking yourself, why does this recipe sound so familiar? Watch my step by step process that I made for National Dog Biscuit Day in February 2020. 

 

Frozen Apple Yogurt Bites

Much like the first recipe, this is a frozen yogurt treat! There are only 2 ingredients needed.

2 Apples that are sliced in small pieces

*Make sure to remove the seeds and the core

1 cup of nonfat greek yogurt

A dash of water 

You’ll need a blender to get the apples into a liquid state. Once you have reached that type of consistency, pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze for 3 to 4 hours.
