Simple Frozen Yogurt Treats
A perfect recipe for summer
Dogs Licking Ice Cream

Stepping out with our furry friends during the sunniest time of the year makes for hot and hungry dogs. This quick, simple recipe is designed to cool off your pup, while providing a delectable, tasty treat! Makes 30-40 cubes, enough to last the summer. Feel free to add other tasty items like raspberries and strawberries, or any of the superfoods listed here (yogurt-fish-honey pops, anyone?).


4 cups yogurt (flavored or plain, non-fat if needed)
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 ripe banana, mashed


  1. Melt peanut butter in microwave for about 30 seconds

  2. Place all of the ingredients into a blender, mixer or food processor and mix well (until smooth)

  3. Pour into ice cube trays or Popsicle trays.

  4. Freeze until firm.

  5. Pop out of the tray (you’ll need a knife) and let your dog enjoy this frozen treat!

I think I would make this with kifir. Yogurt (flavored yogurt, anyway) has lots of sugar, but kifir is rich in probiotics. Flavoring it by putting a few pieces of dog treats or cheese would make it irresistable!

Loved the Facebook item about ice cream for dogs. We usually
go to Brewsters where they give dogs a free ice cream (small) with
a dog biscuit on top. Thor loves it. Here's a really delicious ice cream
for us people, which I thought you'd like. Plus, it's the easiest one
I've ever made.

Raspberry-Lime Frozen Yogurt (4 servings)

l/2 pint (1 small container) fresh raspberries
Scant l/4 cup granulated sugar
Juice of l/2 lime
1 pint plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style, 2% butterfat

In a nonreactive bowl, combine the berries, sugar and lime juice
and let rest for 10 minutes to macerate. Lightly mash with a fork
and add yogurt. Churn in ice cream maker until thick, like soft-serve
ice cream, about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the machine. (I did
mine for barely 15 minutes.)

Also, I doubled this for a dinner party, and it was a great success.

I would never give my dog anything with sugar in it. Must be something better to use than granulated sugar!

My dog, Norman, the basset hound loooooved this recipe! He's drooling over it. I also tried this homemade dog ice cream before, but yours is much healthier : )

Thanks, I'm glad Norman liked the recipe! When I get home I am making some for my pups Luna and Gizmo :)

My dog likes his sugar free carrot cubes. There are no exact quantities, just whatever you think your dog will like. I blend baby carrots, frozen blueberries, and water until the carrots are juiced. Then pour the liquid mixture into mini ice cube trays. Once frozen, I transfer the cubes into a freezer zipper bag. Ideal for dogs who like carrots.
