3 Ingredient Puppy Ice Cream For The Dog Days Of Summer

 

Ahh, it’s beginning to look more and more like summertime! The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and I can finally start working on getting that tan going.

As the weather is warming up, I find myself taking my dog, Meeka, on more and more walks. Meeka just loves being outside, in fact she would spend all day sunbathing in backyard if we’d let her (I know, like mother like daughter!). However, the fact that Meeka is half husky and living in hot, sunny North Carolina causes her to heat up pretty fast. Whenever I am finally able to pull her back inside, she is often panting. She usually gulps down some water and lays down by the air vent. But, being the spoiled diva she is, Meeka has also been getting some special “cool down” treats when she comes inside: puppy ice cream!

Now I love ice cream, so why not create a dog-friendly version for Meeka to enjoy with me? These “pup cups” are super easy to make, they cool Meeka down, and she absolutely loves them! What’s even better is that you only need 3 ingredients to make them... so let’s get started!

A quick and easy recipe to cool down your pup during the dog days of summer!

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time20 minsCook Time2 hrsTotal Time2 hrs 20 mins

 32 oz Plain nonfat yogurt (no added sugars!)
  cup Peanut Butter (All natural, no sugar or xylitol)
 4 Ripe bananas
 Milk-bone Mini's (or favorite small dog biscuit)

1

Along with the above ingredients, you will also need a mixer and a few ice cube trays.

First, peel the 4 bananas and place them in a large mixing bowl (I use the KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer and love it). Use a beater or whisk attachment to mash the bananas until there are no lumps.

Once you’ve pureed the bananas, add the ⅓ cup of peanut butter and continue beating the mixture until it’s smooth.

2

Finally, it’s time to add the yogurt! Pour the full container of yogurt into the bowl and continue mixing the batter until all of the ingredients are well incorporated. This recipe will make a lot of batter, so be sure to use a large bowl or it might get messy! (Note: you can always cut the recipe in half to make a smaller batch)

3

Now it’s time to pour the pup cups! I used ice cube trays, but you could also pour the batter into foil cupcake liners or small paper cups. Using a small cookie scoop, pour the batter into your prefered container and place a small Milk-Bone biscuit on top of eat one. Place the pup cups in the freezer and let them harden. They should be frozen in about two hours depending on how large you made them.

4

Once the pup cups are set, remove them from the freezer, store them in an airtight container, and return them to the freezer (or into your hungry dog’s tummy)!

I’m not going to lie, Meeka was under my feet the entire time I was making these hoping I would drop something on the floor for her. She couldn’t contain her excitement once they were finally done… she sure loves taste-testing!

 

BONE-appetit!
