I have been eating LOTS of freeze pops and popsicles this summer. They’re such an easy, refreshing way to cool down. Our pups need some yummy, frozen treats as well!
My dogs have always LOVED strawberry ice cream… and when I say, “loved”… I mean, they’ve been absolutely OBSESSED.
I’m not a fan of them having that much sugar. I decided to make a healthier, homemade option…
Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Pupsicles
These frozen dog treats are INCREDIBLY easy to make. They also only require THREE ingredients.
- Plain Greek Yogurt - It is important that the yogurt be plain. It should be free of any added sugars or sweeteners. Some added sweeteners, like xylitol, are toxic for dogs. Please check the ingredients in your yogurt before feeding it to your pup.
Greek yogurt has lower levels of lactose than regular yogurt. According to the American Kennel Club, “Dogs’ bodies are not designed to digest lactose after puppyhood, and, therefore, a food high in lactose can cause gas, diarrhea, and vomiting." This makes Greek-style yogurt better for our pooches.
- Strawberries - Strawberries are FULL of antioxidants, vitamin c, and fiber. The American Kennel Club says, “By giving your dog strawberries, you are also helping him stay healthy in more ways than one. For example, over time, fresh fruit may help slow down the aging process, strengthen the immune system, and help with weight management.” My dogs also LOVE their taste.
- Honey - I LOVE honey. It’s a natural way to add sweetness. According the the American Kennel Club, “Honey is safe for dogs to eat in small quantities.” It also recommends not feeling raw honey to puppies or dogs with compromised immune systems. There is a small amount of honey in this recipe. It can be easily omitted though.

Tools Needed for Easy Frozen Dog Treats
Baking Molds or Ice Cube Trays - I bought these adorable Silicone Pet Paw Molds. The frozen treats popped out easily. The molds are easy to clean (dishwasher safe!). The size of the treats is perfect for my pooches. I have not tried to bake with them yet. I plan to though!
Blender or Food Processor - My partner bought me a Hamilton Beach Food Processor for Christmas. I have been wanting one for awhile. It’s perfect! I love to make ice cream, dressings, pesto, and more with it.
Measuring Cups & Spoons - If you do not already have these or need new ones, I recommend checking out this Set of 12 Plastic Measuring Cups and Spoons or this Set of 13 Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and Magnetic Measuring Spoons.
Freezer - seems obvious, but just in case. 😁
Tips to Make Easy Frozen Dog Treats
- Clear some flat space in your freezer, so there’s room for the pupsicles to set. This was the hardest part for me. 😂
- Use a baking sheet or large plate under the mold so you can easily transport it without making a mess.
- Leftover pupsicles can be taken out of the molds and stored in an airtight container in the freezer. I store mine in a freezer bag, like these Reusable Gallon Freezer Bags.
- As with any treat, give them to your dog in moderation. ❤️
