Recipe: Easy Dog Ice Cream with Berries

Most owners believe that ice cream is a safe treat for their pups. While it's not toxic, ice cream made for humans contains lactose, which some dogs cannot digest. Human ice cream also has sugar and artificial ingredients that could upset a dog's stomach. My easy dog ice cream recipe here is made with real berries, and it's packed with nutrients that a dog would benefit from.

Sure, you can purchase commercial dog ice cream products (like Puppy Scoops or Puppy Cake), but making your own homemade frozen dog treats is healthier and it's also easy.

This simple dog ice cream recipe uses mixed berries, but you can easily substitute any dog-friendly ingredients that you'd like. If other fruits or vegetables are in season, or your pet loves something more, feel free to use them instead.

Frozen DIY dog treats allow you to select your own ingredients, so you can choose things that you know your dog loves and aren't toxic to your pup. You can also choose fresh, whole food ingredients that are safer and healthier than the artificial ingredients in commercial products, and make substitutions.

This is a very simple dog ice cream recipe. I used frozen berries, but you can definitely use fresh berries if you would prefer. The mix I use has blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
