Written by: Care Yummers


When it comes to treating your dog, frozen treats made with their favorite Yummers recipe are a cool and refreshing option. Not only do they provide a fun and easy way to beat the heat during the summer months, but they also offer a variety of benefits for your pup.

Benefits of frozen dog treats

The perfect choice for hot summer days, frozen dog treats can help keep your pup hydrated. Dogs, especially during hot weather, can easily become dehydrated. By offering them frozen treats with extra tasty ingredients, you are not only giving them a crave-worthy surprise, but you are also helping them stay hydrated. Frozen treats can also help keep your dog cool and prevent them from overheating.

Consider frozen dog treats to help provide relief for teething puppies. Just like human babies, puppies go through a teething phase where their gums can become sore and irritated. Frozen treats with Yummers mix-ins can help numb and soothe their gums. Plus, the cold temperature can help reduce inflammation and swelling.

Beyond keeping your dog hydrated and helping teething puppies, frozen dog treats offer a range of other benefits. One of the most notable advantages is their ability to support your pup’s dental health. Chewing on a frozen treat can help remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Not only that, but the cold temperature can help soothe any gum inflammation or irritation.

By making your own frozen treats with Yummers at home, you have full control over the ingredients, making sure your pup gets the nutrients they need to feel their best at every age. You can use Yummers, fresh fruits, veggies, and protein sources like yogurt or peanut butter to create a wholesome, balanced treat for your dog.

Frozen dog treat molds and accessories

To create the perfect frozen dog treats, you'll need the right tools. Investing in some high-quality frozen dog treat molds and accessories can make the process easier and more enjoyable. There is a wide variety of options available, allowing you to get creative and experiment with different shapes and sizes.

Silicone molds are a popular choice for frozen dog treats due to their flexibility and ease of use. They come in various shapes like bones, paws, and hearts, adding a fun element to your treats. Silicone molds also make it easy to remove the frozen treats without any breakage.

Another useful accessory is the reusable popsicle sticks. These sticks can be inserted into the molds to create handheld frozen treats, making it easier for your dog to enjoy their treat without making a mess.

For those who prefer a more DIY approach, you can use ice cube trays or small paper cups as makeshift molds. Simply pour the mixture into these containers and let it freeze. Once solid, you can remove the frozen treats and serve them to your pup.

Remember to look for molds and accessories that are made from safe materials such as food-grade silicone or BPA-free plastic. This helps make sure that there are no harmful chemicals that can leach into the treats and potentially harm your dog.

Freezing and storing frozen dog treats

Once you have created these frozen dog treats, it's important to properly freeze and store them to keep them extra fresh and delicious.

Here are some tips to help:

  • Allow the treats to cool before freezing: Let the treats cool down to room temperature before placing them in the freezer. This helps prevent condensation from forming inside the storage container.
  • Use airtight containers: Transfer the frozen treats into airtight containers or resealable freezer bags. This prevents freezer burn and keeps the treats fresh for a longer period.
  • Label and date the containers: To keep track of the treats' freshness, label each container with the recipe name and the date it was made.
  • Store in the freezer: Place the containers in the freezer and make sure they are stored away from strong-smelling foods to help prevent flavor transfer.
  • Follow the storage time guidelines: Frozen dog treats can generally be stored for up to 3 months. However, it's best to use them within 1-2 months for the best freshness and taste.

Remember to always check the treats for any signs of spoilage or freezer burn before serving them to your dog. When in doubt, it's safer to throw them away and make a fresh batch.
