Cream Cheese Dog Treat Icing Recipes

Cream cheese dog treat icing can add flavor and color to the treat. Use these recipes to make icing with different flavors and colors - all naturally done!

Cream Cheese Dog Treat Icing Cheese is rich in protein and calcium and a nutritious food. However, it is also high in fat, so we should use cheese in dog treats sparingly and only for special occasions.

As special occasions may call for icing, cream cheese seems to be a good choice for the icing!

(Remember though, if your dog is prone to pancreatitis, you may want to use a different ingredient for the icing, such as non-fat yogurt, as even low-fat cream cheese may be too rich for pancreatitis-prone dogs.)

Fido's Tips

  • You can get a variety of whole food powder (e.g. banana powder, raspberry powder, blueberry powder, spirulina powder, etc.). These powders are available online or at health foodstores.

    Whole food powder is made from 100% whole natural fruit with no added ingredients. The powders add colors to your icing (e.g. if you want red icing, use raspberry powder).

    Sure, it's more expensive than using food colorings, but the powder is natural and nutritious. And you can put the powder in your own smoothies and desserts as well!
