These DIY Frozen Treats Keep Your Dog Cool When It’s Hot Outside

Frozen toys or treats are a great way to help your dog stay cool during hot weather. Make your own frozen dog treats with just three ingredients and a few minutes in the kitchen.

You’ll need a ripe banana, one teaspoon of unsalted peanut butter and one cup plain non-fat yogurt (not sweetened or flavoured). Combine the ingredients in a blender and pour into an ice cube mould. Freeze the treats for about five hours, then let your dog enjoy! Give your dog one or two to cool down during summer.

Keep in mind that dogs shouldn’t eat too much banana so they don’t overload on potassium, so make sure not to feed them the whole batch at once. If you’re worried about portioning, you can always skip the banana. Of course, if your dog has a sensitive digestive system or is prone to food allergies, make sure you check with your vet before introducing new foods to them

2 Easy Frozen Doggy Treats to Make This Summer [DogVacay]


  • Shouldn’t be giving dogs too much dairy either, because in some it can cause quite an upset with their intestinal tract, causing gas, diarrhoea or even vomiting.

    Be better off with substituting the dairy for coconut milk. One I saw a few weeks back was coconut milk, fresh pineapple & fresh mango. Blend it up, freeze it in moulds & give to the dog when it’s hot out. Been thinking about giving that one a go since mine love her ice cubes & mangoes..

  • Also read the ingredients of your peanut butter, as xylitol is sometimes added as an artificial sweetener. Xylitol is very dangerous to dogs and will lead to rapid failure of their liver (IE, will kill your dog.)
