I’ve wanted to make frozen puppy treats ever since the 90+ days hit and once the brewers yeast came in, which, coupled with coconut oil, is a natural remedy against fleas and makes for super soft fur, I thought that was my sign! I took a couple of recipes and merged them together to make a frozen treat with the added benefit of keeping Sherlock & Watson flea-free and possibly tick-free thanks to the brewers yeast! We love, when my plantar fasciitis allows, to hike with the boys and that means fleas and ticks and these treats can help with that…bonus!!
There’s nothing in these that’s bad for puppies and plenty of good stuff. Pretty healthy overall and would be great for us, except for the added fat content and fact that there’s little true taste to it. Brewer’s yeast has plenty of benefits to us, including high B-vitamin content, which is a big deal to me post-gastric bypass, and plenty of benefits to the furry ones!
These are super-easy to make and the pups just love them after a fun run at the park or just because!
