Frozen Kong Ideas

A Kong has limitless options on what you can stuff into it. As long is it isn't something potentially poisonous to dogs like onions and chocolate. The easiest way to fill a Kong is to turn it upside down (biggest opening facing upward) inside a coffee cup. The coffee cup holds it in place while you spoon in the filling. Filling options can be as simple as a favorite canned dog food or can be a mixture of household ingredients that you have on hand, such as:

Roasted Sweet Potato and Peanut Butter:

1/2 roasted sweet potato with out the skin
3/4 c. of peanut butter
1/4 c. of flax seeds
1/2 cut oats
~ Mix all the ingredients together and spoon into an ice cube tray. Place in freezer. When frozen, you can take an individual cube out and place in the Kong.

Coconut Banana

1 cup of plain yogurt
1 tsp. of coconut oil
1 sliced banana
 ~ Mix all ingredients together and stuff into your Kong. Place Kong into freezer until frozen.

 Chicken and Pumpkin

1 jar of chicken baby food (You could also substitute any other meat baby food)
1 cup of plain yogurt
2 Tbs. canned pumpkin (remember to make sure your canned pumpkin is not pumpkin pie filling!)
~ Mix all ingredients together and stuff into your Kong. Place Kong into the freezer until frozen.

All of these recipes are just examples of what can be mixed together and have been portioned out for a regular sized Kong. There are Kongs available for small breed dogs. These recipes would probably fill multiple small breed kongs.

There are lots of recipes out there and I will start pinning some of them under our "Dog Treats" board on Pinterest! Pupsicle recipes can always be used inside of a Kong and vice versa. Honest Kitchen also makes a pupsicle mix that is fast and convenient. These recipes will keep you dog cool and busy on hot days!
