Notes:
  • Use fresh pineapple (not canned, as most contain too many sweeteners) and use the flesh only. Do not feed the pineapple core or hard skin to your dog, as both are a choking hazard.
  • You can use any mould size or shape you like, however this will affect the total number of treats you make in one batch. Small moulds or ice cube shapes may be a good starting point with this recipe, if it’s your first time feeding pineapple and coconut oil to your dog.
  • Makes up to 30 frozen dog treats if using the small round moulds as shown.
