My pup, Astro, loves a good bowl of ice cream.
He discovered it when his person, Paul, brought him some Frosty Paws ice cream for dogs on one hot, early summer day. I can’t tell you how many cold, tasty “treats” Astro has had since.
He loves his person, and he loves his ice cream.
(Oh, the mischievous part of me was hoping that one day the boys would mistake the Frosty Paws for one of their ice cream treats…Yes, it’s safe for human consumption, but that would have made me laugh. Hard.)
Anyway, I decided to see how difficult it would be to make homemade doggie ice cream for Astro.
It’s so simple that I couldn’t NOT try it!
Basically, you combine yogurt with some dog-safe ingredients, freeze and voila! Homemade doggie ice cream.
This is Astro’s favorite.
1 ripe banana
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups natural plain yogurt
2 Tbs honey
Mash the banana and stir it into the yogurt, mixing well. Microwave the peanut butter for 30 seconds or until it’s easier to stir. Add the peanut butter to the banana-yogurt mixture, then stir in the honey and mix until well-combined. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze overnight. When your pooch needs a treat, pop out a cube and let him enjoy!
