Tips

  • I bought my silicone molds off Amazon for under $10.
  • I used a NutriBullet to blend my fruit & veggies. I used just enough water to cover the frozen contents and blended into a smoothie.
  • I prefer to use Fage 0% fat Greek yogurt because it has less sugar than other brands. I added 1/8c water to Step 1 to thin it out a little.
  • You can substitute peas for the green beans.
  • For easy cleanup, fill quart size ziplock bags with ingredients of each layer. Cut a small corner off one side. Pipe ingredients neatly into trays.
  • Use a baking tray under the silicone molds to keep them level in the freezer.
  • Use any leftover ingredients as a snack, or blend and stuff into Kongs for freezing.
  • Be patient! Taking the molds out early will only cause each layer to melt into the next, making for a discolored final product. Luckily, it still tastes the same to your dog!
  • Enjoy in moderation. These are very sweet treats!
