These dog treats are 2 ingredients and less than 5 minutes for you to make. Perfect for the dog moms short on time but still want to spoil their dog.
We're excited to share this recipe with you so let's get started.
You'll most likely already have these ingredients in your kitchen which also saves you a trip to the store or ordering groceries online.
Not only are the ingredients we chose tasty, but they also offer a wide of health benefits. Strawberries are full of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. And coconut oil has anti-fungal properties and aids in a glossy coat for your dog. Coconut oil also eases inflammation and helps digestion. Would make a great gift to make for a dog mom or for your own dogs of course.
· Coconut oil
· Silicone tray or ice cube tray
· Use a pyrex measuring cup for coconut oil to make pouring easier
· Freeze treats for at least 2 hours before removing from silicone mold or ice cube try
· You can also use blueberries in substitution for strawberries
1. Rinse Strawberries well and finely slice up
2. Add a few pieces of strawberries to each compartment of a silicone mold or ice cube tray
3. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Set microwave for 30-45 seconds.
4. Pour or spoon the melted coconut oil over the strawberries in the silicone mold or ice cube tray compartments and place on flat surface in freezer.
5. After frozen, you can store treats in a freezer bag or container in the freezer.
6. And enjoy!
As hard as it can be to turn away from their begging face, being mindful of "everything in moderation" is key. The recommended usage is 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per 10lbs per day for your dog. So, if your dog weighs 30 pounds they should have up to 3 of these treats per day.
