DIY: Healthy Homemade Dog Food Using Frozen Veggies

Easy + Healthy Homemade Dog Food Recipe


You’ll need:

6 lb protein
2-3 bags of frozen vegetables (mix + match: peas, green beans, spinach, carrot/cauliflower)
1 can pure pumpkin puree
3 tbsp 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)

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

  1. Cook the meat with 3 tbsp olive oil and drain the excess fat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the meat, pumpkin puree, 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!

    • 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)

        • I make my own food & struggle to keep my very hyper boy’s weight up, he’s a Cockapoo & I want to keep him at 26-28 pounds, I find I need to feed him more quantity of homemade or Farmers Dog, which I really love too, it’s excellent!
          My female Cockapoo who is totally different body type & activity level is doing perfect. It’s interesting how quality homemade food makes all the difference, I hope I never have to go back to kibble, it’s dreadful stuff no matter how expensive!
          It’s amazing too no itching or scratching & way less poop because they are absorbing the nutrients. It’s so creative & fun and the possibilities are endless, but the best is seeing your pups dance around the kitchen in anticipation of every meal !! It’s the simple things in life ! Unconditional Love, don’t we all need more of that ! Lol

  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!

  5. Hi. Thank you for sharing. This comes at the right time for me. My frenchie just developed all the possible allergies and has been advised grain free, chicken free and meat free diet! So yes your salmon and veggies diet comes as a big source of relief. Would love to get more recipes.
