Easy Peanut Butter and Banana Popsicles for Dogs

Summer is here and it's hot! Spoil your pup with a cool treat made from fresh, healthy, dog-friendly ingredients. It's a classic and simple recipe: Peanut butter and Banana Popsicles. You can make these in a popsicle mold and use long, skinny dog treats as the stick, or you can use fun ice cube trays for a cute shaped, small treat. After making them you can store the popsicles in the mold you used, or remove them from the mold and put them in a freezer-safe ziploc bag. This recipe will make a large amount, perfect for providing tasty popsicles for your canine companion all summer long.

The Ingredients

  • 1 Ripe Peeled Banana

  • Big Dollop of Creamy Peanut Butter (check the ingredients of the peanut butter to make sure there is no sugar or xylitol)

  • 32 Ounces of Plain Low-Fat Yogurt

  • Ground Up Dog Treats or Milk Bones (optional)

The Process

  • In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana into the consistency

of baby food.

  • Add the creamy peanut butter and mix until smooth.

  • Add the plain low-fat yogurt and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.

  • Grab your popsicle mold, or ice cube tray, and sprinkle some of the ground up dog treats into each popsicle crevice.

  • Fill each mold with yogurt mixture, but be careful not to overfill. Using a butter knife or mixing spatula, remove excess mixture off the top.

  • Place the filled molds in freezer and try to forget about them for at least four hours.

  • Serve your amazingly patient canine family.

Your pup will LOVE these on hot days, so make sure to store them in a freezer safe bag.

This is my favorite little taste tester

When making this recipe, I put the extra filling into a small cupcake mold. We're going to use it for "ice cream" cake for my dog's August birthday.
