DIY Doggy Ice cream

It's only May but the temps have been pretty high already.  When it's in the upper 80's even the dogs find a cool treat to be just the ticket. These adorable paw print frozen yogurt "ice cream" bars are super easy to make, they only require 3 ingredients - and a freezer!  Here's how you can make them in just a few minutes for your canine friends...
You will need:
-2 Ripe bananas
-2 Tbs raw, cold pressed peanuts (you can use regular peanut butter here if desired.  I love the raw, pressed    version for the dogs because it contains only peanuts with no additional salt, oil, or sugar)
-2 Cups plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
-Cookie/muffin tray , like this Paw Print Mold ( Dixie cups work great as well)

Combine bananas, yogurt, and peanut powder in a food processor. Mix until well blended and smooth.  Pour into Paw Print Mold for freezing.
Once frozen (I froze mine overnight and they were ready the next morning), wrap in wax paper to store in the freezer. Wrapping them individually allows you to pull them out one at a time during treat time.
Bug was so excited for her "ice cream" that she would barely hold still for a photo.  So yummy!  Even I liked them!  I  also like that I can break them into smaller pieces for our little dog.

*Always check with your vet before adding new foods to your dog's diet.



  1. Mason is happy with ice cubes, but I think he'd love these too!

  2. It sounds like a great recipe; I just wanted to add here that if you use peanut butter, make sure it is not the kind that contains Xylitol, because that is highly toxic to dogs and can kill them. Have been hearing a lot about it lately. :(

    1. Thanks for the tip Jane! Exactly the reason I trust the version above, with no other ingredient but peanut. Best to be safe!
