Looking for a way to help your dog beat the heat this summer?
This frosty recipe is a great way to reward your loyal pup!
Warning: it does melt fast, but your dog is faster!
Oh! Did I mention that it only takes 3 ingredients?!
And they are ingredients you likely already have in your house; a banana, peanut butter, and plain yogurt.
They are quick and easy to make – the time they take to freeze is the longest part of making these pupsicles.
Begin by mashing one ripe banana, then combine the yogurt and peanut butter so the mixture is a smooth, even consistency.
There are some really cute dog paw or dog bone forms out there, however you can also use an ice cube tray to form the treats if you don’t have anything fancy to use.
Fill the forms to the top, trying to minimize any air bubbles in the batter.
Place in the freezer for 2 hours or until fully frozen.
And let the treat-earning-tricks begin!
The first time my dogs tried this recipe, they took a few slow licks before digging in – and the treats disappeared like magic!
As with all snacks, I don’t recommend giving your dog more than one or two per day because they still will make your pup chubby even though they are homemade.
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 cups plain yogurt
Mash banana well, then mix in yogurt and peanut butter.
Place in ice tray or form of choice.
Freeze for 2 hours or until fully frozen.
Let the pups enjoy!
