Does your dog sit and patiently wait for a scoop of your ice cream to fall, and intensely lick every drop to hit the floor? It’s hot for you, and your dog. You want to cool off, so does he. The next time you enjoy your frozen treats on a cool day, don’t tease your dog, make him a frozen dog treat too!
When making a frozen treat for your dog, use dairy products with caution, as dogs can’t digest dairy well. For this dog ice cream recipe you don’t need to add sugar, it’s unnecessary and not good for your dog.
You will need:
(makes about 10 cups)
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 32oz plain low-fat yogurt
- 10 ice cream dog cups (Dixie works)
- 1-2 pieces of fruit (banana works great)
In the bottom of your dogs ice cream cups, place about 2 inches of cut up pieces of his favorite fruit (banana). Set aside.
In a bowl, stir the yogurt.Once yogurt is creamy stir in peanut butter.Pour your yogurt and peanut butter mix over the fruit in the cups.
Let this freeze overnight or at least 3-4 hours.
Once it’s ready, give your best friend this yummy healthy ice cream.
You can bend the recipe if needed. If it is safe for your dog to have some sugar, vanilla yogurt would be a great substitute for plain low fat yogurt. Adding honey makes this recipe one that you want to taste.
There are things you can do to this basic recipe that will make it yummy for the whole family. This treat is healthy and simple to make. Your dog will absolutely love it! Give it to him on a hot day outdoors, but be careful that he doesn’t eat the ice cream cup as well.
