Dogs are carnivorous by nature but have adapted to the human palate over the years due to humans treating them similarly. Although some dogs will turn their noses up at fruits and vegetables, potatoes seem to pique their interest, especially the robust flavor of a sweet potato or yam. Either sweet potatoes, which tend to be more yellowish, or yams, which are potatoes with a deep orange hue, can be used to make this delicious dog treat recipe.

These orange-colored potatoes contain a high content of beta-carotene, which is converted into Vitamin A, an essential dietary need for healthy eyes, and Vitamin C which promotes healthy gums and skin.

Sweet potato dog treat recipe for icing

For dog treat icing, cook the sweet potato as you would for yourself. Mash it up and make a sweet potato dog treat icing by substituting mashed sweet potatoes for regular mashed potatoes in this recipe.


  • Cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 serving baby food  – chicken, pork, beef, turkey (dog’s favorite flavor)


  • Combine the mashed potatoes with the baby food. Mix well.
  • Apply as a coating to dog’s food, or to a sweet potato cake or other dog treat as an “icing”.

Be sure to read the ingredients in the baby food you choose and make sure it does not include any ingredients toxic to dogs, especially onion powder.

Potatoes are healthy, especially if cooked. Avoid green skins or green sprouts which contain a substance that can be toxic.

Sweet potatoes are a high-fiber food source, just like pumpkin in pumpkin dog treats, so you may not want to feed these dog snacks around bedtime!

However, due to the high fiber content, they will slow digestion down and cause the natural sugar to be released slower and will not disrupt blood sugar concentrations abruptly.
