Frozen Peanut Butter and Jelly Dog Treats
There are two ways to make frozen peanut butter and jelly dog treats, one with Greek yogurt and one that is dairy free. Both use natural ingredients.
Ingredients for frozen peanut butter and jelly dog treats
1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter (this one contains only peanuts, if you use a different type of peanut butter make sure it DOES NOT contain xylitol)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries (frozen can be used as well)
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup cold water
Directions for pb & j frozen dog treats
Mix together the peanut butter and the plain Greek yogurt in a bowl. Stir until well combined.
The mixture will be thick and you will need to press it into the mold if you want it to have noticeable layers.
Otherwise, just dollop it in making sure it stays below the top edge of the ice cube tray.
Add the strawberries, blueberries, and water to a blender. I used my Ninja blender but any brand will work. Blend until smooth.
Spoon the fruit mixture on top of the peanut butter mixture, filling each spot to the top.
Gently tap the ice cube tray on the counter to help settle the peanut butter and fruit mixtures. This is especially important if you didn’t press the peanut butter mixture into the ice cube tray.
Place the ice cube tray in the freezer and freeze for at least 4 hours, or until the treats are completely frozen.
Once the treats are frozen, remove them from the ice cube tray and store them in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve.
Dairy-free frozen peanut butter and jelly dog treats
If you want to avoid dairy for your dog, this dairy-free version is for you.
Ingredients for dairy-free frozen peanut butter and jelly dog treats
1/4 cup all-natural peanut butter (this one contains only peanuts, if you use a different type of peanut butter make sure it DOES NOT contain xylitol)
1/2 cup diced strawberries or blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup water
Directions for frozen dairy-free PB&J dog treats
Melt the peanut butter in a microwave-safe container that you can pour from. I used a glass measuring cup. All natural peanut butter that is refrigerated will need about 15 to 20 seconds to melt fully.
Once the peanut butter is melted, pour it into a silicone ice cube tray filling each spot about halfway full. I like these paw and bone silicone trays for smaller treats and this bone silicone tray for large treats.
Set the peanut butter filled tray aside.
Place the strawberries or blueberries into a blender and add the water. Blend until smooth.
Pour the berry mixture into the silicone tray, filling each spot completely.
Another option is to put the pureed berries into the mold first and then fill it with peanut butter.
Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours or until frozen solid.
Once frozen, pop out of the trays and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to enjoy!
These delicious treats are perfect for summertime snacking or anytime your dog needs a special treat!
Place the silicone ice cube tray on a cookie sheet before filling. This makes it much easier to get it into the freezer without spilling anything.
Other berries can be substituted for the strawberries as long as they are safe for dogs.
Use smaller ice cube trays for small dogs or to limit the size of the treat for bigger dogs.
Both recipes can be made in small batches by halving the ingredients. Though the dairy-free version is already a fairly small batch.
Once the Peanut Butter and Jelly Frozen Dog Treats are frozen, they can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for about 2 months.
If the treats are not stored properly, or stored for to long, they can become freezer burnt and lose their flavor. To prevent freezer burn, make sure the container is airtight and does not have any holes or cracks.
