Can you believe Halloween is less than two weeks away? Do you dress up your dog for Halloween? We are always last minute here with the Goldens but somehow seem to pull it off just in time.
One thing we never leave for last minute is the treats! A few months ago I came across a Day of the Dead silicone mold and I knew it would make a fun and healthy Halloween dog treat.
I love making these homemade frozen treats for the Goldens almost as much as they love eating them. It's an easy and quick way to get wholesome ingredients into your dog's diet because you know exactly what is in them.
There are so many combinations of flavors you can use when it comes to these silicone molds. Today, I decided to kick in up a bit and create three layers of the Goldens favorite food combos!
Triple Layer Day of the Dead Dog Treats
Before we get started, keep in mind that each of these layers will need to set up individually in the freezer. From start to finish these took me approximately 1 1/2 hours to make before the pups got their first taste.
Step 1 - Combine 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt with a tablespoon of coconut oil and spoon into the mold and place in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.
Step 2 - Stir 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and spoon on top of the frozen yogurt layer. Place back in freezer for another 30 minutes or until firm.
Step 3 - Blend one mashed banana with 1 tbl. honey and spoon on top of pumpkin layer. Place back in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.
Once all the layers are completely firm - time to pop them out!
Aren't they cool?!
They are like candy corn for dogs but so much cuter and healthier!
Miley has been a counter-surfer since she was a pup stealing a baked potato off the counter so I knew she would be the first one to pop up for a taste.
What layer do you think your dog would like best? I'm pretty sure Miley's favorite would be the yogurt, Maggie's would be the banana and Bruin's would be the pumpkin.
Making fun and healthy homemade dog treats is a great way to include your dog in your Halloween fun!
