Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Ice Cream Recipe

icecreamfinal
It’s already getting hot here already so I decided today’s treat would be something to cool the dogs down a little. (Plus I admit I didn’t want to turn on the oven…)

You can find doggie ice cream in the freezer section of your grocery store but it’s also very easy (and inexpensive) to make at home. Our dogs love bananas and peanut butter so I used them as the basis for the recipe.

Ingredients

3-4 ripe bananas
32 ounces plain yogurt (I used lowfat)
1 cup peanut butter (organic if you have it)

The ice cream just takes a minute to make. Toss the bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt into a blender and blend until it’s mixed.

"Is it ready yet"

Next, pour the mixture into ice trays. You’ll need about five or six ice trays for this amount. (If you don’t have that many available, just pour some of the mixture into a plastic zippered bag and toss it in the freezer to break up when you’re ready to serve.)

Pop the trays in the freezer and in a few hours your doggie ice cream is ready to serve!

  • This is a Pawesome recipe. Pretty healthy too. Much better than what you get in the grocery store, without all of the additives and chemicals. Frosty Paws has soy ingredients along with many “scientifically” created ingredients the average consumer could never spell or pronounce. it is also preserved with BHA and BHT. Put it all together and these are all things that a health conscious consumer should never feed their dog.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • You are very welcome! Along with our dogs, John served as our taste tester and he says it’s a good dessert, too! Next time I may have to make a bigger batch for us AND the dogs! –Paris

  • This looks like a great healthy summer treat for dogs, I cant wait to try out this recipe!
