Frozen Fruit and Lavender Bark for Dogs

We’re celebrating the final days of summer with a cool treat that’s good for dogs and humans. Break off a piece of our Frozen Fruit and Lavender Bark – one piece for you and one piece for your pooch!  You’ll notice that I used K9 Honey in this recipe – I met the makers at SuperZoo, who let me taste their delicious honey. It is be labelled for dogs, but it’s fine for people to eat, too. The folks at K9 Honey know their bees, and make their honey by gently blending it with bee pollen from nine geographic regions. I love trying out new pet products, especially from people who are passionate about what they make!

Makes about 20 pieces

Ingredients:

Break off a piece of this honey-sweetened frozen bark for your dog… and while you’re at it, get a piece for yourself!
2 cups plain yogurt

1/4 cup K9 Honey

2 cups fruit (I used blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries – but you can choose your dog’s favorite fruit)

½ teaspoon dried lavender (I used lavender from my garden)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, honey, and lavender.
  2. Larger fruits need to be removed of stems and pits, and cut down into small, bite-sized pieces. Raspberries and blueberries can be used whole. Gently stir the fruit into the yogurt mixture until just combined.
  3. Pour the yogurt onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a spatula to spread it out smoothly and evenly. The fruit may need a bit of a press with the spatula to even out the surface.
  4. Freeze baking sheet overnight.
  5. Remove from freezer and cut or break the sheet of yogurt into pieces.
  6. Store yogurt bark in a freezer-safe container or bag, separating the layers of bark (so they don’t freeze into a bark sandwich!) with parchment paper.
