If you’re looking for a festive snack to make for your pup, try these Santa Paws DIY homemade Christmas dog treats!

They’re a healthy option that only requires two ingredients. Only taking a few minutes to make and no need to bake, your pup will be in the holiday spirit in no time.

You’ll need a blender, a freezer, silicone trays, some yogurt and frozen or fresh raspberries.

Ready? Let’s Get Started.

 

Steps: Santa Paws Homemade Christmas Dog Treats

 

Get Prepared: Before you get started, you’ll need some paw molds. I used these silicone molds from Amazon. They’re safe for the freezer and oven—a good investment.

 

Yogurt Layer: Using a measuring cup and a spoon, pour in the yogurt layer to fill the tray halfway. It’s a good idea to tap the tray on the counter to release any air bubbles. Place in freezer.

 

Raspberry Layer: Once your yogurt layer has frozen enough, make your raspberry layer. Blend together frozen raspberries and water.

 

Add Honey (Optional): Although I didn’t add honey to my dog treats, you could stir some into either or both layers. Consider your dog’s preferences. Many dogs love plain yogurt so there’s no need to add sweetener.

 

Freeze: Freeze your silicone molds until they’re completely frozen.

 

Feed: Consider that the red color may stain carpet, so give to your dog on tile, a towel, etc. Unfurtunately, my dog doesn’t like healthy foods so he had a few licks and looked upset. (To be fair, he was spoiled by these bacon and cheese treats the night before.) But I’m happy to report that my sister’s dog loved them!
