Frozen applesauce dog treats are a tasty treat you can make for your dog with only 3 ingredients.

Note: Always check with your pet’s veterinarian before introducing new foods to your dog’s diet. This is especially important if your dog has any food sensitivities.

Equipment

  • ice cube trays (or these cute paw and dog bones silicone molds)
  • bowl and spoon
  • measuring cups
  • baking sheet (optional)

Ingredients

Peanut butter, frozen blueberries, and a cup of applesauce.

1 cup unsweetened applesauce or homemade applesauce (one without artificial sweeteners)

1/4 cup natural peanut butter, creamy works best

1/4 cup blueberries (or more)

Instructions

In a medium bowl, mix together the applesauce and peanut butter until smooth.

Add the blueberries and stir to combine. If your blueberries are on the large side, just put one or two in each spot of the ice cube tray.

Then, spoon the mixture into an ice cube tray or silicone mold. Tap the tray on the counter a few times to get the mixture settled into the cubes. This will hopefully get rid of most of the air bubbles in the treats.

Place the ice cube trays into the freezer and let sit for a couple of hours until set firm.

Once firm, remove from the molds and store in the freezer in an airtight container, like a freezer bag, for future use.

Notes about making frozen applesauce dog treats

Make sure your ingredients don’t contain any xylitol, it’s toxic to dogs.

If you don’t have blueberries on hand, you can use any dog-safe berry. Or, you can make them without the berries. Your dog will love them either way!

For silicone molds that are really bendy or flimsy, place them on cookie sheets. This makes them easier to carry to the freezer.

If you want a quick treat for your dog, or they don’t like frozen treats, use the mixture fresh. Just spread it on a lick mat and give it to your dog right away.

Do dogs like frozen applesauce dog treats?

Yes! Dogs love frozen applesauce dog treats. Luna and Morgan were so excited to try them that they wouldn’t stop watching me while I made them.

They got to help me clean up and licked the spoon clean very quickly. Once the treats were fully frozen, they both got to try one.

They both loved the treats so much they could barely wait for me to get my fingers out of the way before they ate them.

  1. I put mine in the freezer for a couple hours and then in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator and the turned to muss. What did I do wrong?

    1. Frozen treats have to be stored in the freezer to maintain their shape and consistency. I updated my post to make it more clear where to store these treats.
