You can also use a Bake-A-Bone to make these, and other dog treats! Summertime Freezer Dog Treats The most basic treat is the broth treat. Save bones from roasts, chickens…well, just anything…and slowly simmer them in water, carrots, celery, black pepper, and a dash of raw apple cider vinegar. The vinegar helps pull out the minerals from the bones. Fill the compartments of ice cube trays with broth and freeze. They can be popped out and stored in a heavy gallon sized ziplock bag. A variation on this broth treat is to make this broth in a slow cooker overnight (using poultry bones). Once it has cooled, and strained, you will find that the bones will completely disintegrate when you pinch them. Strain, cool, and place all the broth bones/veg in a blender and puree it. It will make a nutritious paste (remember, it has all the bone, cartilage, etc in the paste). You can thin out this paste with some of the broth and freeze the treats, same as above. A sweet treat is banana pureed with plain yogurt. Mix it up by adding berries, natural peanut butter, and honey. Fill the compartments of ice cube trays, freeze and store. 16 oz. plain yogurt 1 tablespoons peanut butter 1 tablespoons honey 1/2 ripe banana: Mix all of the ingredients in a blender or mixer and freeze in ice cube trays. Blackberry Treat Recipe 16 oz (2 cups) fresh blackberries 2 cups oats 2 1/2 cups wheat (or rice) flour 1 Tablespoon honey 1/2 cup butter Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place blackberries in food processor or blender & purée. In a large bowl, mix purée with remaining ingredients. Use a spoon to drop bite-sized pieces onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Freeze additional treats up to 3 months.
