Having a cold treat for your pug handy during the hot weather is such a great idea. They will get to have a delicious healthy treat that will help keep them cool. And I have 3 easy frozen treats for your pug that you can whip up in no time.
The best part about these 3 easy frozen treats for your pug is that you probably already have the ingredients at home. The basis to these treats is the healthiest yoghurt for your pug, Natural Greek Yoghurt making these delicious and nutritious!
The base mix of these treats are Greek Yoghurt. And then you can really add anything you like to them to give variety and depending on what your pug likes.
What You Need
- A Silicone Mould
- 170g Greek Yoghurt
- 9 Blueberries
- 1 Tbsp Manuka Honey
- 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
To Make 3 Easy Frozen Treats
- Divide your Yoghurt or Kefir evenly between 3 small bowls.
- In one bowl, mix in 1 Tbsp of Manuka Honey to your yougurt so it is smooth and well mixed through.
- In your second bowl, mix in 1 Tbsp of peanut butter until well mixed through.
- Divide your mix from each bowl evenly into your silicone mould. In your moulds that have just the yoghurt only, add blueberries into the mould.
- Place in freezer until completely frozen.
