Are Frozen Pineapple Treats safe for dogs?
These frozen pineapple dog treats are safe for your pup. No artificial sweeteners or flavors have been added, so they’re healthier than most store-bought dog treats.

Always consult your veterinarian before giving your dog new foods.
Pineapple for dogs
According to the AKC, fresh, raw pineapple is safe for dogs (just don’t use canned pineapple). Dogs should not be given the outer part of the pineapple or the central core, as both can be dangerous for them. They can eat the fleshy part, the same part you would eat.
Greek yogurt for dogs
According to Rover, Greek yogurt is safe for dogs and has more protein than regular yogurt. It is also a great source of beneficial probiotics and active cultures that are good for your dog’s digestive system.

Step 1: Gather ingredients
In order to make these frozen pineapple dog treats, you’ll need fresh pineapple, plain Greek yogurt (without any added sugars or artificial sweeteners), and an ice cube tray.
Step 2: Cut the pineapple
Cut the top off a whole, ripe pineapple and cut away the outer shell until you have just the inner fruit. Remove any eyes from the pineapple with a paring knife and cut around the inner core of the pineapple. Then cube the pineapple.
Step 3: Put the cubes of pineapple in a blender
Put 1 1/2 cups of pineapple into a blender and pulse until you get a smooth puree of pineapple. If you’re having trouble getting it to blend, add a tablespoon of water at a time until the consistency of the puree allows the blender blades to move. Don’t add any more water than needed though or your puree will end up too runny!
Step 4: Add in the yogurt
Add 1 cup of plain greek yogurt into the blender with the pineapple puree and blend until it is evenly combined.
Step 5: Pour the puree into your ice cube tray
Pour the pineapple-yogurt mixture into an ice cube tray. If it won’t pour easily you can spoon the mixture into the ice cube tray. You can use any type of ice cube tray you like, as long as it will allow the puree to freeze evenly. You can use a standard ice cube tray or a fun-shaped silicone one like this!
Step 6: Freeze overnight and then serve
Put the tray into the freezer and freeze overnight. Once they’re frozen, take them out of the ice cube tray and put them in a resealable bag or another freezer-safe container to store in the freezer for later.
To serve, simply give one or two frozen pineapple dog treats to your pooch!

Morgan also really liked these treats. She made it difficult to get a good picture of her.
