Berry-licious Frozen Kefir Treats

When sharing Murphys raw bowls over on Instagram, something I am regularly asked is 'What are those paws?' or 'How do you make them?' 

The short answer is: They're nothing more than Kefir and berries and they're super simple to make! 

For those who have never heard of Kefir or it's benefits for dogs; it's basically a healthy fermented milk drink. It can be made from cow, sheep or goats milk and the health benefits for both human and hound are huge and include: 

  • Antibiotic and anti-fungal properties.
  • Aids prevention of allergies.
  • Promotes healthy skin.
  • Strengthens the digestive system.
  • Helps with upset stomach.
  • Can counteract bad breath.
  • Helps with joint disease.
  • Potentially reduces the increase of cancerous cells.
How much Kefir should I give my dog? 

I give Murphy around 3-4 paws a week, but as a rough guide: small dogs 1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon daily, Medium dogs 1-2 tablespoons daily, Large dogs 2-3 tablespoons daily. 


150g Blueberries
150g Strawberries
150g Blackberries
150g Raspberries
500ml Kefir 

Kefir can be purchased from most supermarkets and is usually found in the chilled section.

You will also need some kind of blender and a selection of moulds any will do but the paw ones I use here can be cheaply purchased from either Ebay or Amazon


  1. Using a food processor puree the Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
  2. Pour the pureed mixture into your chosen moulds, just enough so that in lines the bottom but doesn't fill the mould completely to the top.
  3. Pour in the kefir to fill. 
  4. Place in the freezer.
It really is that simple!

You can of course experiment with these as much as you like and the flavours and possibilities are endless, as well as the health benefits they also make a great cool treat on warmer days!
