Last week, Dewey and I were dog sitting Mano (the cute little labradoodle you see in the photos). Zach brought his pup Marco over for a play date and decided to whip up a batch of dog-friendly ice cream so that they could cool off with a sweet treat after running around all afternoon. And since it definitely got their tails wagging, we had to share it with all of you so you can make a batch for your fur babies!
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that all the ingredients are things I usually have in the house, and you just need a blender, and some ice cube trays. So it’s easy to whip up whenever Marco has been running around all day! He loves it, and I can feel good about giving him a healthy, natural treat.
18 oz plain yogurt
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup peanut butter (make sure it’s an all-natural kind that doesn’t contain sugar or palm oil)
- In a blender mix yogurt, bananas, and peanut butter until it forms a smooth mixture. Depending on the size of the bananas and thickness of the peanut butter you may need to add a little more yogurt to help it mix well. Add a tbsp at a time if you need to.
- Pour out into an ice cube mold.
- I prefer a silicone mold because it’s a lot easier to get the ice cream out after it has frozen. I have a large and a small one to give me options.
- Freeze for at least 2 hours.
- That’s it! Let your pup enjoy it!
These will keep for up to a month in the freezer. Usually, after it’s frozen I place it in a ziploc bag to prevent them from freezer burn.
