A recipe for dogs? Yup! These Froyo Bites for Dogs are just what your puppy ordered. Easy to make and doggo-approved, Froyo Bites for Dogs are a household favorite for our tiny fam, and I hope you and your pup love them too! Now, let’s make pup treats!
Apparently it’s National Spoil Your Dog Day, so pushing the publish tab on this dog recipe today feels really right.
Truthfully, I only know today is National Spoil Your Dog Day because I’ve been send some ad emails about things I should be buying my dog. Every day should be spoil your dog day, as far as I’m concerned. Which is why I make these doggo Froyo Bites for Dogs on the reg.
In other doggo news, I spent an afternoon compiling footage of my dog being cute for 12 minutes straight. Feel free to watch below:

Now: let’s get into the recipe. These bites are very forgiving and flexible. You can use many different things you have around the house, and they will still turn out delicious for your doggo.
The base of the recipe is bananas. For the “yogurt” part, I usually use plain apple sauce or canned pumpkin. If you really want to, I suppose you could use a bit of your preferred kind of plain unsweetened yogurt if you want and know your dog is okay with it. People have various opinions about what kinds of yogurts (dairy, non-dairy) are best for dogs.
I do know soy and peas are common ingredients in many dog foods. I have also seen plain dairy yogurt in many commercial frozen dog treats. I also know many dogs are lactose intolerant and some people don’t think dogs should have dairy. Other people think dogs should have dairy. Other people think dogs should only eat dog food and no ‘human’ food.
But I am not a vet and I don’t pretend to be and I won’t pretend I know what is best. I also don’t know what works for your dog. So, I just most often use unsweetened applesauce or a fourth banana.
Anyways, long story short, just use apple sauce or a fourth banana.
Millie loves these no matter how I make them. But that’s honestly a low bar to clear because she literally eats anything. So I’ve tested these on several pups and all have approved. I hope your pup does too.
Remember: Millie loves you!
