Frozen Dog Treats (Spinach Rosemary)

These frozen dog treats combine fresh greens and herbs for a simple, healthy snack your pup will love! Prep and freeze in just over an hour.

A lot of homemade pet snacks feature sweet ingredients, so I thought I’d try something a little more savory this time.

What I especially love about these 3-ingredient dog treats is how easy they are to throw together!

If you do want to stick with sweeter flavors, I’ve got several other flavors of frozen dog treats like strawberry, blueberry, and watermelon. Each is made with simple, fresh ingredients to keep your pup happy and healthy.

Does your furry friend prefer biscuits? Try this tasty peanut butter snack that’s packed with nutrients from shredded carrots and oats.

How To Make Frozen Dog Treats

First, strip the rosemary leaves from the stem. There’s a handy tool called an herb stripper that makes quick work of large bunches, but you can use your fingers here since there is only one sprig.

Grip the top of the stem with your thumb and index finger, then run it straight down to separate the leaves in one go.

Toss the rosemary in a food processor with the spinach until finely chopped. Divide the greens into the bottom of each well and top with melted coconut oil.

Freeze until solid, then transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use fresh herbs. Dried rosemary has little to no nutritional value, so be sure to grab a fresh sprig to maximize the health benefits in these frozen treats for dogs.
  • Don’t overdo it! Spinach is great for dogs in small quantities, but large amounts can give them diarrhea and cause them to vomit. So, it’s best not to change the amount of spinach unless you are preparing a double batch.
  • Avoid spills. Place the silicone mold on a small baking sheet so it’s easier to transfer in and out of the freezer.
  • Want to use different molds? Simply adjust the ingredient amounts based on size and depth. Anything made from food-safe silicone or even plastic ice cube trays will work.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can I use different herbs with this recipe?

Yes - thyme, oregano, peppermint, and parsley are all safe alternatives. Or, feel free to leave out the rosemary all together if your dog doesn’t seem to like it.

What’s the serving size for these frozen dog treats?

Stick with one a day, two for larger canines, since the bulk of their nutrition should come from their kibble.

Can I make a double batch of frozen treats for dogs?

Absolutely! This recipe makes ten servings, so you can easily prepare more to keep on hand in the freezer.

You could even mix and match with one or more of my fruit varieties so your furry friend can have a different flavor every day.

  • 1/4 cup Fresh Spinach

  3. Place the coconut oil in the small dish and microwave for it for about 45 seconds or until liquified.
  4. Place the silicone mold on a plate or small, flat, moveable surface. Using the baking syringe, fill each paw print.
