"Dog treats?" you may be thinking. Yes, dog treats. Let me 'splain.
My dog has 2 kong toys. A "puppy" kong and a regular kong. After she was a year old, I saw a regular kong for a great price and bought it for her. I assumed that she had grown out of her puppy kong - as per the instructions. I was wrong. The puppy kong has special use. It is more flexible than the regular and can fit treats that the regular kong cannot. Enter: Frozen Yogurt Dog Bites from The Hillbilly Dog Company (My designer dog company. . .a.k.a. anything I make for my dog).
Here we go. Tonight, I took my leftover apple dices, some yogurt (I normally use regular plain, but I only had plain Greek), and some peanut butter.
If I had to guess, I would say a cup of apples, 1/2 c. yogurt, and 1/4 c. peanut butter.
Mix it all up . . .and mold. Here is my dog treat ice cube tray that I use. . .because the size fits into the kong nicely. . .and I love hearts.
And here is my molding process. . .when I use regular plain yogurt, the process is a little smoother. . .
P.S. The silicone mold is nice. . .the treats pop out easier than I would imagine them to do in a traditional hard-plastic mold.
Then we put them in the freezer. When I make these, I normally end up doing 2-3 freezing batches.
Here are my frozen treats from another recipe:
I believe I used regular plain yogurt, cranberries, and banana.
Well, the cake is smelling good. . .I suppose I should go check on it!
