Dog treats are great when training our dogs, to help them stay mentally stimulated, to help them stay calm in stressful situations, and of course to show them how much we love them!  But buying treats for dogs all the time can be costly. Even worse, they often contain unwanted calories, fillers, preservatives, and other ingredients we'd rather limit our dogs consumption of. Easy Homemade dog treats are a great alternative to store bought treats for dogs. 

Homemade dog treats are a good way to control what goes into your dog's treats. With DIY dog treats, you know where every ingredient is sourced from and you control every ingredient that goes into them. You won't add fillers, preservatives, or those artificial ingredients you can barely pronounce! And, they are almost always much less expensive than store bought dog treats!  

But don't panic if you don't bake or cook - or don't want to! Many homemade dog treats are really easy to make, are no bake dog treats, and contain healthy ingredients.  The dog treat recipe I've included below checks all the boxes. It's a homemade dog treat recipe that's Easy to make, and your dog will love it.  This dog treat recipe requires No baking, No cooking, and is Healthy, and Inexpensive. All you'll need is two ingredients and a freezer!  You may even have these two ingredients right in your pantry or refrigerator. 

This two ingredient recipe for Dog Treats is one of my favorites. It's super easy, really healthy, and inexpensive. Best of all, my dogs Love these homemade dog treats.  The above video shows you how to create these delicious Frozen Pineapple - Blueberry dog treats.

Frozen Pineapple-Blueberry Dog Treats

All you need is Pineapple, Blueberries, and an ice cube tray. The fruit can be cut up fresh, canned, packaged, or frozen. You can really use any type of packaged pineapple and blueberries. The only thing to be aware of is that if you use packaged fruit, get the kind that is packed either in water or the fruit's natural juices, not syrup. Be sure there is no sugar or other ingredients added to the packaged fruit. 

Below are step by step instructions if you'd rather not watch the video. Although the video is kind of fun, especially when one of the frozen dog treats falls off the plate, lands on the floor, and Jessie is right there to grab it! She knows how to seize an opportunity!

Pineapple Blueberry Frozen Dog Treat Recipe:


1/4 cup Blueberries
1/4 cup of packaged pineapple in it's juices, or fresh cut up pineapple in small pieces with some of it's juices
1 ice cube tray


STEP 1  Pour the pineapple juice and pieces into ice cube trays.  Don't overfill, leave room in the tray to add blueberries.

STEP 2  Add blueberries on top of the pineapple juice and pieces. Add as many or as few blueberries as you want as long as they fit and the trays don't overflow.

STEP 3  Place ice cube tray in the freezer until frozen.  Pop the frozen treats out of the ice cube tray and serve to your dog for a delicious, healthy dog treat!

Can Dogs Eat Pineapple and Blueberries?

According to the AKC (American Kennel Club) Blueberries are a superfood rich in antioxidants, which prevent cell damage in both dogs and humans. They’re packed with fiber and phytochemicals as well.

Pineapple contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It also contains bromelain, an enzyme that makes it easier for dogs to absorb proteins.

Hills Pet Nutrition (Hills Science Diet) points out that Pineapple contains Vitamin B Complex and Vitamin C, as well as several beneficial minerals. It's also beneficial to dogs immune system and digestive health.

NOTE: Always check with your Veterinarian before introducing any new foods to your dog's diet. Some dogs with health conditions may not be able to eat fruits.

Most dogs like the taste of blueberries and pineapple. But if you find your dog doesn't like one or both of these fruits you can substitute with another fruit that is safe for dogs to eat like watermelon.

I just a LOVE an easy homemade dog treat recipe. Henry loves any recipe where he gets to taste the final product. This looks like an absolute WINNER! Although, I may have to sneak a few into my water as ice cubes. ;) Super idea for those of us that have lost the joy of baking, Cathy! And Jessie certainly seems to like these homemade dog treats as well. That means they are a winner! And a big budget saver too. Excellent! I'm sharing this one with all my dog parents. Thanks!
