Serena Nelson and Sarah Dickerson from Pretty Fluffy have once again combined their talents to bring us a gorgeous recipe e-book that is filled with healthy, nutritious, and beautiful dog treats: Frozen.
With 30 recipes featuring fruits and vegetables, you are sure to find something for every season. They’ve included a guide to shopping for ingredients and you can tell at a glance if a recipe is grain free, dairy free and/or vegan .
The photography is gorgeous and inspiring. Each recipe comes with helpful hints.
Serena offered to share one of her recipes with Daily Dog Tag readers. I think these Mutt Mojitos are perfect for this time of year. Around here, anyone who has a garden is usually overloaded with zucchini.
4 Cups Zucchini
2 Cups Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
A few leaves of Fresh Mint
- Wash zucchini under cold running water and roughly slice it into small pieces, ensuring to cut off and discard the ends. Finely chop mint leaves.
- Place zucchini and peas in a steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam for 10-15 minutes or until softened.
- Allow to cool, then add zucchini, peas, mint, and around ¼ cup of boiled water to the blender and puree until smooth. Add in small amounts of boiled water as required to achieve your desired consistency.
- Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or until frozen through.
- When frozen, remove from ice cube trays and store in labeled Ziploc bags in the freezer.
Makes approximately 20 treat cubes.
HANDY HINT: This treat works double duty – great as a refresher in summer, but also wins warmed up and added to your dog’s meal in cooler months.
Important Note: When serving treats, your dog’s health and safety is always the top priority. If your dog tends to ‘gulp’ down treats without licking or chewing them, it is safer to serve frozen treats stuffed into a Kong which will keep your dog entertained for hours!

Nice! The photos are gorgeous and I like the idea of the mutt mojito lol. I did a recipe for a dog margarita once. Perhaps doggy cocktails are catching on!
A dog margarita sounds fun too!
This is perfect; I have tons of zucchini! My little guy will love these.
I love this idea. I’ll have to look into this book!
What a lovely book! The pictures look beautiful and the treats look so refreshing! Perfect for my big dog on a hot summer day.
I bet your dog will love it!
Simple yet sophisticated. Such an easy way to spoil your babies. Love it!

I have oodles of mint iny garden, and although I give my dogs zucchini I had never thought about giving them the mint in treats. What a fantastic recipe. Thanks for sharing!
I hope your dog loves it!

I love that these are filled with healthy ingredients for our furry family members! I haven’t made dog treats before (although I cook for our dog) so this will get me going!!!
Let me know how these treats are received!
Those sound really yummy! Dogs are so lucky to get so many wonderful treats. Unfortunately, cats are stuck with a lot of the same old, same old. It works for them though!
Is that because cats are so finicky or are there more food that are dangerous for cats?
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Those look really good but I think I’d enjoy them more than Mr. N! He likes to be a carnivore.
Always looking for healthy and delicious food to make for the pup. This book and the recipe sound wonderful!

Sometimes I wish I had a dog to cook for – even a friend’s dog! The recipe sounds delicious, and it’s really awesome that she’s created a book full of recipes that are good and healthy for dogs.
Talent Hounds says
The book looks amazing- such great photos and ideas. I will definitely make these for Kilo and I might try myself. I make similar but with chopped up carrots not mint and he loves as soup or frozen.
I bet my dogs would like that variation too!
I love this book and the wonderful photos! Pretty Fluffy is a great site!!!
I agree, Pretty Fluffy is an awesome site!
