Yogurt Banana Dog Treats Recipe (1)

Our little Penny only gets the occasional raw vegetable when I’m prepping dinner, but no other people food, so when she hears the freezer door open, she comes running hoping for one of these frozen Yogurt Banana Dog Treats.

She absolutely loves ice cubes, so these are like the Ferrari of treats.

I was actually making smoothies a few months ago for breakfast with yogurt, bananas, almond butter, and a handful of other ingredients when my daughter said, “I bet if you took out all the stuff that isn’t good for Penny, she would love these as frozen dog treats.”

Ya, she’s totally going to Harvard some day. Lol.

Needless to say, I make these all the time now and have the freezer stocked along with Penny’s other favorite Pineapple Pupsicles.

Are these dog treats safe?

Yes! These treats only contain plain yogurt, banana, and natural unsweetened almond butter (or peanut butter without xylitol) – all safe for dogs.

  • Plain, low, or non-fat yogurt provides digestive and probiotic benefits and serves as an excellent source of calcium for our canine companions. (Avoid flavored yogurts that are packed with sugar, and never feed yogurt that contains the ingredient xylitol, an artificial sweetener that is toxic for dogs.)
  • Bananasare a natural source of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. They also contain magnesium and are high in fiber. Vets sometimes recommend them as a treat because they are rich in potassium and low in sodium and cholesterol.
  • Nut and Seed Butterssuch as Peanut butter, Almond butter, and Sunflower butter can be an excellent source of vitamins and protein for dogs. Make sure they are raw and natural, unsalted and unsweetened, and free of any flavors and xylitol, which is a sugar substitute that can be toxic to dogs.

Nobody knows your dog like you do, though, and not all dogs digest human food the same. Use your best judgement and as with any treat, feed in moderation.

Prep Time 5 minutes minutes

Freezing 3 hours hours

Total Time 3 hours hours 5 minutes minutes

Servings: 50 treats (or 2 cups)

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons natural unsweetened almond butter (or peanut butter - without xylitol, which is toxic to dogs)
  • 1 medium banana , sliced

Instructions

  • Place silicone molds on a baking sheet (this helps transfer them easily to the freezer without spilling.) Set aside.

  • Put all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor; blend until combined and creamy.

  • Transfer to a measuring cup with a spout, for easy pouring.

  • Fill each slot to the top with the mixture.

  • Gently release the frozen treats out of the molds and watch your doggie gobble them up!

Notes

  1. These are the silicone molds I used and I love them! (<< that's an affiliate link) These treats are small. If you have large dogs, you might want to use different molds or adjust the serving size.
  2. Only use plain yogurt. AVOID feeding your dog any yogurt that has artificial sweeteners or added sugar.
  3. Only use natural unsweetened almond butter or peanut butter (without xylitol, which is toxic to dogs)
  4. Leftovers should be stored in the freezer and will keep for up to a month. They can remain in the silicone mold (covered), or pop them all out and keep them in an airtight container.
