How to make dog friendly blue icing

Updated April 17, 2017

Liven up homemade or store-bought dog treats with dog-friendly icing. It is easy to make and only requires a few basic ingredients. Not only will this icing make your dog's treats taste delicious, but icing-topped treats can be given as gifts to friends with dogs, or you can use the icing to decorate a dog-friendly cake for a special celebration.

Place 227 g (8 oz) of low-fat or fat-free cream cheese, 2 tbsp of honey and 2 tbsp of plain yoghurt in a bowl.

Mix the ingredients together with a spoon (or mixer) until smooth.

Mix in 1 tbsp of flour at a time. You will need approximately 3 tbsp; however, you should base the actual amount you use on the consistency of the icing and how easy it is to spread.

Add two or three drops of blue food colouring.

Stir the icing until it is completely blue.


If a dog consumes a large amount of food colouring, it may change the colour of his urine. Not to worry -- this does not affect his health, as long as the food colouring was approved for human consumption.
