DIY: Healthy Homemade Dog Food Using Frozen Veggies

Easy + Healthy Homemade Dog Food Recipe

Our first cooking video! We’re soo excited to share this with you guys. If you follow my pups @WTFrenchie on Instagram, you’ve probably seen me cooking their food in their IG Stories. I get so many comments asking for the recipe and what’s in it. I’ve posted my first dog food recipe here but this one’s a cinch because it uses frozen veggies. And my friend Abby, owner of Brentwood Barks, (and our friend roséjoined me so it was even easier and so much fun!


6 lb protein
1 can (16 oz) kidney beans
1 can (16 oz) black beans
4-5 bags of frozen vegetables (peas, green beans, spinach, carrot/cauliflower)
3 tbsp canola/olive oil
3 tbsp coconut oil
Any supplement/vitamin you like (I’ve used crushed up calcium powder, a probiotic supplement for dogs and a joint supplement for dogs–I’m considering turmeric next)

[ Canine Complete is an all-in-one supplement ]

  1. Cook the meat with 3 tbsp canola or olive oil and drain the excess fat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the meat, beans (rinsed), vegetables (make sure to thaw a bit), 3 tbsp coconut oil and supplement.
  3. Spoon into ziplock bags and freeze until ready to use. That’s it!

In our video, we go into more detail about portion size, how much it usually makes, price and more!

We’ll be making more of these videos so feel free to leave any questions or requests in the comments below–enjoy!

    • Hi! I kind of eyeball it now but it’s around 3-5 bags. And make sure you have more meat than veggies/beans. 🙂

  1. Hi,

    Our puppy is only 4 months old and I wanted to start cooking his meals, but I’m not sure how much of it I should feed him. He eats 3x a day and didn’t want or over feed or under feed. Any recommendations?

      • I have so many questions but a couple are how much does Fira weigh now and her age? Has the diet changed since this video post? Do you mix your recipe with dry food or on its own? I also have a female and I’m worried about over feeding.

        • Hi Alex- Fira is 2.5 years old and weighs 14 lbs. She’s never eaten dry food (except the first 6 months of her life)—only cooked. I’ll do homemade or most of the time get pre-made foods from companies like Pure Dog Food and Just Food For Dogs. They’re based in SoCal but ship nationwide. (If you do want to try Pure Dog Food, you can get $20 off orders over $40 with code: wtfrenchie)

  2. Hello Ladies! I’m slightly confused on the recipe versus the video. The video has 3 cans each of kidney and black beans, whereas the recipe above lists 1 each. Can you tell me why the difference? Is the video showing you making a tripled recipe, or is it a typo?

    Lovely frenchies! I have two boys, myself. Best dogs ever for companionship.

    • Hi! I think we tripled the recipe in the video.
      But now I make their food without the beans- it’s not really necessary and really just a filler. Sometimes I’ll add quinoa. Hope this helps! 🙂

  3. Hi, I have a 4 month Frenchie and looking to cook food for her in a few months. Your recipies are great and had a question on the frozen vegetable one. What kind of probiotic pills are you using, human probiotic or are they dog specific?

  4. May I use lean ground beef? Is it too fatty for our Frenchie? We are thinking she might be allergic to chicken. Thanks for your help!
