Happy holiday everyone! I hope you’re having a great kickoff to your July 4th weekend. I’ve been busy running around all over town looking for July 4th theme supplies for the blog. I can’t wait to show you tomorrow’s post! Let’s talk about today’s post first! There are plenty of food ideas for July 4th, but I didn’t see many treat ideas for dogs.
If you’re new to my blog, you guys know I have this “loveabull” dog name Dobby. I occasionally cook for him too on the blog (take a look at his birthday cake or the cookies I made for him). I don’t know about you, but we treat Dobby as a family member and not just only a pet. I wanted to make sure he didn’t feel let out this July 4th, so I made him some patriotic frozen doggie bones. These frozen bones are the perfect treats for summer! They offer your dog a nice cool down during those long hot summer days. The red layer is sweet strawberry, the middle is creamy greek yogurt, and the blue/purple layer is blueberry. All safe and natural for your dog to eat. So American, easy to make, and they got Dobby tail wagging! You can even make them for yourself…minus the dog bone mold. I hope you guys decide to make some for your fur-baby this weekend!
Patriotic Frozen Doggie Bones – makes about 10 (dog bone mold)
1/2 Cup strawberry – washed, stem removed
1/2 Cup blueberry – washed
1 8oz plain Greek Yogurt
-Dog bone mold or any molds/paper cups you have on hand
- Puree your strawberry in the blender. Add a little water if need to, to get the strawberry moving. Pour into a bowl and set aside. Repeat with blueberry. If your blueberry is more purple, add a few drops of blue dye.
- My dog bone molds takes about 3 Tablespoons to fill, which is perfect for my layers. I used 1 Tablespoon of strawberry puree for each mold. Pound it against the counter to make sure it distribute evenly. Put in freezer until completely frozen. Thats the secret to nice even layers…making sure each layer is completely frozen.
- After your strawberry layer is frozen, next comes the the yogurt layer. Add a little water to your yogurt to make it more of a liquid. Add about 1/2 Tablespoon of yogurt to the top of your strawberry layer. Freeze until frozen.
- After your yogurt is frozen, now you can you add your final layer. The blueberry, about 1 Tablespoon. Freeze until frozen.
- Pop your treats out of the molds when ready to serve. Hope your fur baby enjoys it!
