DIY Frozen Treats Your Kids AND Pets will Love This Summer

Summer is just around the corner! You know what that means - it's time for frozen treats! But why should the kids have all the fun? Today, we've got some inspiring DIY frozen treat recipes that will have your kids squealing with delight and your furry friends wagging their tails with joy. Get ready to beat the heat with these delicious treat recipes for dogs and children!

PB&J popsicles

One of the best ingredients for kids' and dog treats: peanut butter. Just add some yogurt and a handful of mashed berries. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, pop in some sticks, and freeze them until solid. These frozen treats are tasty and packed with protein and vitamins for your little ones and pets to enjoy together.

Banana berry bites

Here's a treat that is sure to make your furry friends go bananas! Mash a ripe banana, mix it with crushed berries, and pour the mixture into ice cube trays. Freeze until solid, and you've got yourself some delicious and healthy bite-sized treats. Pooches will also enjoy mashed sweet potato and peas in the mix.

Watermelon slushies

Who doesn't love juicy watermelons on a hot summer day? Turn this refreshing fruit into a frosty delight! Blend some fresh watermelon chunks until smooth, pour the mixture into ice cube trays, and freeze. Once frozen, toss the watermelon cubes into a blender, add a splash of lime juice, and blend until you achieve a slushy consistency. Serve it in cups or bowls, and watch as your kids and pets slurp it up happily!

Yogurt-berry parfait cups

Parfaits aren't just for adults - kids and pets can enjoy them too! In small cups or bowls, layer plain yogurt, mashed berries, and a sprinkle of granola or crushed dog treats. Repeat the layers until the cups are full and pop them in the freezer until firm. You can also make these pet-friendly parfaits in your pooch’s Kong or another treat-dispensing toy. For this recipe for dog treats you can experiment with different flavors: use dog-friendly ingredients like shredded carrots or cooked diced chicken.

Bone brothsicles

Let's not forget our furry friends who prefer savory treats. Bone broth is a super source of immune-boosting nutrients for children and pets alike. For kids, mix one-part bone broth with one-part fresh fruit juice and pour it into popsicle molds to freeze. For your four-legged children, pour bone broth into muffin cups or other silicon molds and add a few pieces of cooked chicken, dog food, or dog treats.

Add a fun handle!

For children, a simple wooden popsicle stick may do the trick. However, this is not ideal for your recipe for dog treats. For your four-legged friends, if you want to add a fun and chewable handle, try something like chicken jerky, a milk bone, or a bully stick.
