Ice Cream Recipe for Dogs!

Sammy’s mom brought us a recipe for Dog Ice Cream based on Frosty Paws, and since the we’re in the middle of summer, it’s a good time to share! Thanks to Sammy’s mom!

Dogs are not supposed to eat dairy products (yogurt is OK), so you’ll notice this isn’t a real ice cream recipe, but a nice substitute that you keep in the freezer and serve up cold as a treat. You can use ice cube trays, Dixie cups, a muffin or cupcake tray, or popsicle molds…

Yogurt contains much less lactates than regular milk, and the live cultures are great for dogs’ digestive systems (in fact, we put a spoonful of yogurt in our dogs’ food every morning and it keeps their tummies nice).

Ingredients: 32 oz plain yogurt, 1 mashed banana, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of honey (local honey is preferred) .

Instructions: Mix everything together in a blender and dump into your mold. (You can also pour and freeze inside a Kong toy!). Freeze.

Serve up cold! Try not to let them eat too fast or your dogs will get a brain freeze!
