October 16, 2022 | General


  • 6 strawberries, washed well
  • 1/2 cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons all-natural creamy peanut butter (you may need more or less depending on the size of your strawberries)*

    *Make sure your peanut butter does not contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.

  • Carob chips*

    *Do NOT substitute chocolate chips, as chocolate is toxic to dogs. Find carob chips at most health-food stores.

Yields: 6 treats

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Slice the stems off the strawberries, creating a flat and even top.
Core the strawberries.

Gently stuff the strawberries with peanut butter (about a 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon for each—do not overstuff).

Dip the strawberries carefully in a bowl of well-mixed yogurt to coat, tip first. Place each strawberry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cut side down.
Freeze strawberries for one hour.

Dip frozen strawberries into yogurt again, then place two carob chips for eyes onto each of the strawberries.

Freeze for one additional hour and serve.

If left in the freezer for longer, let rest at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes before serving to soften slightly. Store leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container and serve within a week.
