frozen brown rice treats for Dogs, dog treat recipe

Here’s a fun and ridiculously easy frozen dog treat you can make at home using leftover rice! It’s SO easy, it’s not even really a recipe…more of a how-to! Use any type of plain rice but do NOT add any seasoning, oil or butter when you steam or boil it. We like brown rice so I always cook a bit extra to have leftovers for Daisy. These frozen rice treats have a nice crunch that dogs love, and are a healthy, inexpensive treat. They are FUN to make, so let your kiddos help!

organic brown rice

Cook plain brown or white rice according to directions on package. No seasoning or oils. Just rice.

Fluff the rice and allow it to cool. Or finish preparing your dinner and set some aside for later.

Place the cooled plain rice in a freezer bag. You can mix in a little sodium-free chicken broth or a bit of mashed up banana if you want to make flavored crunchies, but it’s not necessary to add anything. Smoosh the rice into one flat layer and squeeze out the air, then zip. Make sure it’s all smooshed together and well flattened…otherwise you just end up with a bag of frozen rice. Tastes the same, but not as fun.

Stick the flattened bag of rice in the freezer and leave it for several hours or overnight.

Once the sheet of rice has frozen solid, break it up into pieces (similar to making peanut brittle). Store treats in the freezer and use them as a simple, healthy snack for your dog anytime. Enjoy!

Freezy Pups Kit Product Review

Just in time for the dog days of summer, we got the chance to try out Freezy Pups,  a make-at-home kit of organic, frozen dog treats. Freezy Pups come in 4 flavors: Chicken Soup Recipe, White Cheddar Cheese, Juicy Apple and Sweet Potato ‘n Maple. Not only are the super fun and easy to make, but they are also less than 4 calories each. These cool treats are free from wheat, corn, soy and gluten, and contain NO artificial colors or flavors.

Freezy Pups Kit

The Freezy Pups Kit is $19.99 and comes with a Freezy Pups Tray and 4 packs of organic treat mix (one in each flavor; each pack makes one tray). The entire kit is enough to make 56 treats and refill packs are available at the Freezy Pup website for $8.99 per box (makes 70 treats). The first step is to mix a packet with 7 oz. of hot water. If you don’t have a measuring cup that shows ounces, it works out to 7/8 of a Cup. Then just stir.

After mixing, you pour the liquid into the Freezy Pup Tray (I found it easiest to use my Pyrex measuring cup for the whole thing since I could measure, mix and pour from the same container).

Then it’s ready to go into the freezer. Our first batch was the Sweet Potato ‘n Maple, in case you were wondering! We did this in the evening so they would be ready the next day!

After a few hours the tray of bone-shaped frozen treats is ready to go! A great tip that the makers of Freezy Pups were smart enough to print right on the package is: For easy removal of treats, let the tray rest on the counter for about 4 minutes. That sure does the trick, and they popped right out for us! Here they are up close so you can see how they come out:

In addition to LOVING the treats in their frozen form, Daisy also enjoys when I melt 1 or 2 and mix it with her dry kibble like gravy! She loves all 4 flavor, and I like the fact that they are made with organic, natural ingredients!  These are some of the COOLEST treats we’ve tried and are officially Daisy Tested and Approved!
